dF X GDD - Palm Springs Weekender 2

Close your eyes for a sec and imagine the following 2 scenarios -
Scenario A: There you are putting the pedal to the medal in your Previa, listening to your favorite "Call Me May Be" remix, heading to the nearest beach showing some sort of swell and just as you're about 4 miles away, it hits you like the worst Montezuma's Revenge you've experienced since your 13th birthday - CAR-MA-FUCKING-GEDDON!  You're screwed in that lil' farkin' egg van wishing you had a tent to pitch that you could sleep in for the 2 days that it'll take you to get to the beach!
Scenario B: You wake up Friday morning in your Beverly Hills mansion, wearing your favorite mink coat, listening to Sade (live in your living room) and as you flick your wrist to get Hanz to prepare the chopper - it dawns on you that there's an extravagant gathering going on this weekend in Palm Springs filled with exquisitely tropical beats, butt-floss-rockin' humans, and an unlimited supply of suds and spirits that would make sir Dom Pérignon look like a chump!  Gee golly, I'm no farking Brain Surgeon but you don't have to be a mathematician to know which scenario adds up...

This weekend, our homies at Dub Frequency, Gotta Dance Dirty, and MDA bring us yet another froth filled weekend at the insanely awesome and luxurious Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs, California, USA, Earth, Milky Way.  From Friday September 28th till Sunday Sept 30th, we'll (see your fav DJs in pic above) be rocking pool parties, sweaty dance club parties, and spin-the-bottle parties till our knees give way!  Book yourself a room HERE (Special $99 homie rate HERE), post creepy videos to the facebook page here, and pack your damn bags already - your Tropical Oasis Awaits!

Dear Diarrheay - East Coast Broast

Reflections from the wing...

Dear Diarrheay is an epic journey documenting some of my recent travels whether it's in instagiz form, videos, write-ups or whatevas.  Just thought that some of the places I go, the people I froth with, and the things I get into are worth a read whilst taking a shit...
Paying respect to creepy fingaz during the only frothy pit I snagged in VB



My recent East Coast travels to Virginia Beach for the East Coast Surfing Championships (ECSC), was quite the ta-rip to say the least.  Having not been to the east coast for hundreds of fort nights, I was soon reminded of what a different and interesting vibe it is out there.  ECSC was like the US Open of surfing on the east coast but jam packed with 15 year old groms frothing at the bit trying to cop a feel on some strange any second they got.
Contest event site

Although the waves were complete horse mierda, some of the pros were still rippin' and there was seldom a dull moment.  Aside from surfboard wave riding, other activities included fine-dining/local cuisine at the World's most disturbing white-trash fast food establishment where they charge for ice adequately named Bojangles, getting sophisticated and enjoying the local spirit called the Orange Crush, observing my friend as a local slack jaw - probation bracelet and all - drunkenly courted him, meeting North Shore movie legends Turtle and Chandler, and coming to a realization that Virginia Beach is the sole reason that emo music still exists today.
Local epic threads
Outside of all that hustle bustle, there exists plenty of local shredders who, despite the groveling conditions, manage to overcome the orange crush temptations, deal with the fickle surf, and find a magical way to rip the shit out of the waves they've been dealt.  I definitely developed a new found respect and admiration for their patience and perseverance through such conditions and realize that I was once quite spoiled while living in La Jolla and rarely, if ever, having to surf ankle-high close-outs.   
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-csc!
All and all, despite not surfing, the trip was a classic one, the people were beyond friendly and entertaining,  and I now know of the perfect vacation destination to take my future 15 year old son to meet some myrtles...
Stebs, Toad, CarmensGettingCreepy, Chuckie, and SAH gettin' cultured...
Stay tuned for my next epic journey and get real-time updates as they froth by following me on Insta-Grizzler at: @SurfAmbassador

GDD x dFm: Palm Springs Weekender

Updated Today*
Man o man, where the hell has the summer gone?  It's certainly not over but as the last few remaining months start to dwindle like a carrot zooming down a horse track teasing the ever so graceful "taza de mantequilla" (buttercup the thoroughbread), it's clear that we haven't got much time.  Lucky for you, you came to the right place and are about to receive a prescription for just what the doctor ordered; a huge bag of fun, sun, and happiness in the form of a time machine that doesn't actually have time, it freezes it and thus creates The Endless Summer!  

That's right, just 2 DAYS from now during the weekend of July 27th and 28th, my mates over at Gotta Dance Dirty and Dub Frequency are teaming up to bring you a Desert Weekender that's sure to have your mind, body, and spirit trapped in a World where seasons don't change and the only language that the natives speak is Summertime Slang.  We're talkin' about Palm farking Springs aka the Leather Desert baybay!


If you didn't get a chance to froth at the legendary Saguaro Hotel during Coachella weekend when Dub Frequency packed the place with a list of musical legends from the likes of: A-Trak, Busy P, Aeroplane, DJ Harvey, Tiger & Woods, Poolside, Oliver, Penguin Prison, and many more, than do yourself a favor and do the following:
1.)  Watch the Epic Vid Above
2.) Continue reading
3.) Book Yourself a room for the weekend of July 27th HERE NOW
So now that you've already got your room booked and your bags packed, I can tell you more great news!  Not only will you be cruisin' troppo style in the desert and enjoying deliciously refreshing cocktails and colds dogs, but GDD and dF have also hand picked a blimp full of All-Star Disk Jockeys (DJs) who will be tickling not only your taste buds and your ear drums but also your private parts umm I mean hearts and your souls!  Hailing from the legendary GDD empire, the following legends will be throwin' down mad beats and booty shakin' jamz till your legpits get rashes and your fist pumps turn into fish pumps:
If that wasn't enough to get your schmeckel pumpin and your cha cha' chompin', just you wait... there's more!  Bringin' the tropical heat, the tradewind trouble, and the Caribbean charisma shall be the posse they call The No Shirt / No Shoes crew!  That's right, the following pool sharks and daytime disco freaks will be gracing the decks by the pool (mojito in hand) and makin' sure that your awesome oasis is properly heated and oh-so-smooth! 
So pretty much, this weekend is gonna be EPIC, there will certainly be boss jamz galore plus some special musical guests (Germang Dupree?), and I'm pretty sure that the place will be flockin' with myrts scantily clad in brazillian butt floss and rumors of  mario lopez rockin' a banana hammock for the ladies!  Ultimately, this is gonna be a weekend you tell your grandchildren about whilst finally riding on your hoverboard!  If you haven't done so already, book your room HERE and prepare for a weekend that will freeze you in summer eternally...
Peep this brand new mix that GDD DJ Shae B just dropped for this weekend!

Longer Nites & Frothy Bites - July Mixtape

Hey friends,
if there's anything I can say about this Summer so far, it's that it has yet again managed to amaze me in ways I once thought of as impossible.  From a dream Fiji trip to epicly bangin' pool parties,  great surf in Jalama, classic times with friends, and countless wonderful memories; it's safe to say that Music has played an essential role in capturing, retaining, and eventually eliciting these awesome memories.  With so many great tunes droppin' this summer and so many talented emerging artists making waves, I thought it's about time I share the wealth and bring you all a new mix!
My last 2 mixes have been more suited for those beach party/pool froth days where mumus, mojitos, and myrtles run wild like gazelles in the San Diego zoo.  Today, I bring you a mix more suited for those wild nights where you tell your buddy: "Fine, I'll have one beer with you mate, just one" and before you know it, you're takin' shots of wild turkey out of a soggy shoe at the West End/Saloon/Jumbo's Clown Room/Adelita's etc...  Consider this mixtape a tank full of fuel to pump into your El Camino strapped with boards in the back, babe in the front, hands on the wheel, and destination set to 1987.  Dedicated to those long summer nites filled with fun, froth, and friends,  I hope this mix finds you well and that you share the wealth!  Without further adieu, I present to you "Longer Nites & Frothy Bites - July Mixtape" by Surf Ambassador Hendo:

Tracklist can be found on my Facebook Page later today.  Big ups to Po Po of The Ampal Creative for da art!  Want more froth?  Cruise out to Palm Springs this weekend and rage with me, the GDD crew, and the No Shirt / No Shoes crew!

Poolside - Pacific Standard Time (Album)

Hello bradas and sistas!  
This last Monday marked the release of our favorite Tropical Disco innovators' debut album!  That's right, Poolside!  Having not heard a lot of slower more tropical disco jams until last summer and the release of their legendary track entitled "Do You Believe?", it seems evident that these types of clean/smooth/slower jams suited for chilling at the beach or poolside have been sweeping the southern California shores and the No Shirt / No Shoes decks in particular!  But the Poolside fellas didn't stop there, instead, they continued to pump out baby making jams like their rendition on Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" and the ever-so-croozy "Take Me Home".  Ontop of these boss jamz, the Poolside mates headed into the studio not only to record their full upcoming album but to also practice their live set which would utilize something rarely found in today's electronic music scene... all real instruments being played by all real humans!  
So without further adieu, the fantastic new Poolside album rightfully titled: Pacific Standard Time is here and ready for you to purchase!  This album is packed with phenomenal croozy feel-good songs that will leave you comfortably trapped in summer and if anyone deserves your $9.99 more, it's them!  These guys are true innovative legends and I constantly ponder whether they sleep at all cause they are constantly hustlin' and groovin'!  Cheers to you Poolside bruvazzzz!
