Hurley has announced that they will partner with iconic artist C.R. Stecyk III to debut his new short film FIN on February 8th at Hurley’s H Space Gallery in Costa Mesa, CA. Taking inspiration from the film, Hurley is also creating a limited-edition printables collection featuring art and photography captured during the film’s creation.

“Stecyk is both a celebrated chronicler of the art, surf and skate cultures as well as a longtime friend to the Hurley brand.  When he told us of his plans for the film, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work together to bring his vision to life,” states Jason Maloney, Hurley’s Director of Art.

FIN, the first installment in an evolutionary series of digital film shorts, details Stecyk’s method of working with a wide variety of personages in the southern California region and reflects the social and sonic landscapes in which these creators inhabit. People whose work has been documented so far include Von Dutch, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth,  Evel Knievel, Dave Sweet, Julian Ness, Tom Blake, Dale Velzy, Tyler Hatzikian, Scott Anderson, Mitch Abshere, Scotty Stopnick, Mike Ness, and Roland Sands.  The featured soundtrack is also a nod to West Coast visionaries, with Social Distortion, Breakdown, Tommy Guerrero and Steve Alba and the Powerflex 5 contributing to the project.

“FIN investigates artisan garage culture.  It will offer insights into an assortment of individuals who incorporate traditional do-it-yourself garage methodology into differing pursuits such as traditional modified vehicles, surfboards, skateboards, art, music and communications,” states Stecyk.

The subsequent printables collection will feature a series of 4 t-shirts showcasing exclusive artwork and still photography captured during the making of FIN.  The printables collection will be available for purchase on Hurley.com in conjunction with the film’s Costa Mesa debut on February 8th.  The film will then travel to Hurley’s additional H Space galleries in Bali and Tokyo for international premieres.

MGMT, Jimmy Eat World, Surfer Blood, The Sound And Dead Country Scheduled To Perform

Huntington Beach, CA – The 2011 Nike US Open of Surfing has a soundtrack and it will play live on the beach before tens of thousands of fans. The event, owned and produced by IMG, the global leader in sports and entertainment, is taking a cue from its action sports roots, and set to deliver the largest free concert series of the summer.

“It’s fun bringing some of the best musicians in the world to the US Open of Surfing,” says Hurley’s Director of Music and Entertainment Marketing Greg Teal. “It doesn’t get much better than hearing your favorite band perform live on the beach.”

This year’s musical line-up is a representation of today’s youth culture featuring headlining sets by psych-pop rockers MGMT, platinum-selling rockers Jimmy Eat World and Swedish electro/rock sensations The Sounds. The series will also include sets by the most buzzed about names emerging on the music scene this year: Surfer Blood and Dead Country. “We’re pretty excited to come to Huntington Beach for the US Open of Surfing.  Our advice to everyone:  Drop out with MGMT, drop by for MGMT, but just don’t drop in on MGMT,” said MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden.

Collaborative Exhibit “Awesome!” Opening at Hurley’s )( Space Gallery
Featuring Artists Martin Ontiveros, Skinner Davis, Justin Scrapper Morrison, and Brandon Bwana Spoons
Opening Tonight Saturday, June 11th, 2011

(Costa Mesa, CA – April 18, 2010) -COLOR, COLOR, COLOR! Hurley is joining forces with four celebrated artists from the Pacific Northwest – Skinner, Martin Ontiveros, Scrappers, and Bwana – to bring an explosion of color to Hurley’s )( Space Gallery via the “Awesome!” exhibit, opening June 11th, 2011 at 6:00pm.

For the first time ever, Hurley is bringing the talented quadruplet together, creating an exhibit that immerses the viewer in a world of neon colored beasts, fishermen, surfers, bats, turtles, bears, waves, wings, totems, walled cities, and one massive volcano. The exhibit will feature visually striking works as well as interactive elements such as a volcano-shaped skate ramp made created from recycled materials.

About The Artists:
Martin is a painter and a legend living in Portland, Oregon. Affectionately known as a Wizard in training, Rock n¹ Roll soldier, and an unrepentant metal-head; Martin has shown in galleries all over the world including Thrash Out in Japan, and Atticus in Barcelona.

Skinner is a self-taught artist from Sacramento, California who has meticulously crafted a balance of extraordinary mural work, mighty powerful wall to wall installations and a prolific commercial career. Influenced by 80’s pop culture, human struggle, myths and violence dungeons and dragons and the heavy metal gods, Skinner¹s mind is one full of mayhem fueled by a calculated chaos. His work has been shown all over the Universe at places like the Museum of Graphic Design in Breta, Netherlands, Japan, Illustrative Festival in Berlin, Germany, France and the states from LA to New York and in between. His most recent solo exhibit entitled “The Fear You May Know” reigned at the White Walls Gallery in San Francisco in the summer of 2010. Skinner¹s work has gotten acclaim in various publications including Blisss, Juxtapoz, Hi Fructose and Beautiful/Decay.

Justin is a shredder of life. He paints. He writes. He directs and motivates everyone around him to be more radical. Scrappers is the art director at the Portland Mercury, he has shown art all over the verse, Art Toys in Paris, Thrash Out in Japan, and every nook and cranny up and down the West Coast. ³WHAT IS CREATIVE? Skateboarding, surfing, making art, writing stories, cooking without a recipe, talking to strangers, playing music, and all kinds of instinctive problem solving that people do everyday.

Bwana Spoons was raised in the woods. He likes moss and cactus and wild beasts of all manner. He has a hard time escaping the sunset sunrise colors-pink, orange, and yellow. Bwana has a hard time just focusing on one thing-making paintings or zines, art directing, curating shows, making things with piles of wood, designing toys, and recently Bwana was bitten by the textile bug. Designing for Converse, Dekline, MonsieurT, Bumbleride, Threadless Select, DC shoes, and now Hurley. Mr. Spoons has shown his art all over this planet- NYC, LA, SF, Paris, Tokyo, Barcelona, London. What is next is a cosmic mystery. You can visit him anytime at his Portland Headquarters- Grass Hut.
