What would it take for a professional athlete, performing at the highest level, to take a break? SPY Pro Surfer Alex Gray shares what was behind his decision to stop competing in order to chase bigger waves:
Also in the spirit of following a less-travelled path, over a decade ago, graffiti artist and surf photographer Andrew Sarnecki began designing and printing his own mini surf magazine, “South Bay.” Now, he’s taken his signature tag and created HippyTree, an eco-conscious company that provides quality surf and climbing inspired products to open-minded individuals. HippyTree also walks the walk in terms of sustainability, using organic and eco-friendly blends in their clothing materials and printing their catalogs on recycled paper.
Today we celebrate that individuality with exclusive HippyTree and SPY Optics events and we welcome Gravis – footwear and apparel for skaters, snowboarders, and surfers. Gravis debuts on The Clymb today with internationally known, skate, surf and snow inspired footwear, apparel, and packs. Consider color with Gravis’ unique styles that translate all over the world.
