Pick up the latest Later Mag and check out an article/interview/photos I created called Man Crush featuring @fosterhunting and @bryanwfox. Also, the magazine features a nice little contributors write up & photo on me by my lovely friend @luisakhp.
Trevor can you tell us where you are from?
Santa Barbara, California, currently living down the road in Carpenteria.
What do you do for work?
Im a professional surfer…
With surfing as your job do you have any time off, or is it a year round career?
Well, its a year round career in that there are always waves somewhere which means i have to stay busy all the time. But not everything I do is about surfing. My definition as a pro surfer is a hazy one.
Aside from chasing swells, what are your plans for the summer?
Im currently working on a new short video about these four finless surfboards. The plan is to get them in the best waves possible for what they are designed for…
So ill be going to Central America and Baja here pretty soon. Then up to the Pacific Northwest to help a friend build some tree houses.
Out of all the places you have travelled to, where is your favourite spot to surf?
Sandspit at the Santa Barbara harbor mouth.
Burritos are a quintessential after surfing food, where is the best burrito spot in Carpenteria?
Taquieria Rincon Alteno
When you aren’t surfing what do you do?
I paint and draw a lot. Also love taking photos during trips and turning them into little books. Sailing. Camping.
You just moved onto a sailboat correct? Any plans to take the boat out any extended trips this summer?
Haven’t moved in yet, but yes, next month. Ill spend this summer and the rest of the year getting to know the boat and cruising the Channel Islands here. A Baja trip within the next year or two would be awesome.
Where is your favourite summer vacation destination.
I rarely vacation in the summer… I love going to vancouver Island but thats more towards the fall.
You just hosted a successful zine launch and art show in Venice, California, what projects are you working on now?
Yes, it was so fun. Basically all effort right now goes towards this finless surfboard film… and maybe a small zine to follow.
What music are you listening to this summer?
Kind of sad, wish I could say I was listening to all this cool music… I don’t really listen music unless I’m sitting down and painting or drawing, in which case its usually johnny cash or bob dylan or the velvet underground or something else random, I don’t know. I usually do a pandora radio.
For our latest Well Travlled we bring you, Kealan Shilling. Kealan Shilling was born and grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts in a small town called Marblehead. Chasing dreams of snow, surf, and a rambling roadside, Kerouac inspired life; at age 18 he hit the road and never looked back. Ride along with Kealan as he ventures off on a surf trip to Nova Scotia, Canada with professional surfer, Dean Petty.
Dean Found His Long Lost Friend
It is always interesting trying to find time to do work on the road
Especially when wondering around Nova Scotia
We searched for the perfect surf
The endless fields and adventures lead us to some amazing spots
Found some swell just down the way
Dean surfed until dawn
Our friends came out to watch
We stayed in this rustic house that looked like it was going to topple over
From there we would drive for hours searching for new breaks
Equipt to rip
The landscapes in Nova Scotia are amazing
And so is the surf…
Wet and cold seal-looking human
I could explore this area for months
In the morning we would check the swell & drink coffee
Testing his toes on the nose
Surfing camp fires were essential…
…To stay warm for sunset sessions
The view from our rickety old house was insanely beautiful
Reviewing the work captured
This fall we were invited down to the beautiful Oregon coast to shoot the 2014 Airblaster Ninja Suits Catalog. It turned out to be such a fun weekend surfing and hanging out with friends. Take a look at some of the images below:
