“HAZMAT Surfing” Photos Predict a Poisonous, Dark Future for Our Oceans
When Washington-based photographer Michael Dyrland visited Los Angeles for a shoot, he anticipated surfing the open sea and riding the waves beneath the sunny sky. What he found, he admits, was not what he had hoped; after an evening of heavy rains, he was confined to the shore for days, the ocean contaminated with ten billion gallons of runoff composed of— as the photographer puts it— “sewage, garbage, oil, and shit (literally, human fecal matter).” Had he paddled into the water, Dyrland would have been vulnerable to staph infections, respiratory illness, MRSA, and Hepatitis C.

Surfing On A Dirt Bike, Because Everything Else Is Too Easy
From Flyboards to Hoverboards, there are some crazy water rideables out there at the moment, but they pale in comparison to this wave-riding dirt bike built for DC Shoes and piloted by Australian stunt rider Robbie Maddison. Maddison, whose previous work includes filling in for James Bond during a chase sequence in ‘Skyfall’, took the modified bike out onto the waves of Tahiti to film the four-minute sequence below. The end result is frankly stunning, with the bike appearing to tear across the water as easily as a two-wheeled jet ski (although we’re sure there were plenty of crashes that didn’t make the final cut).

Couch Surfing USA: Three People, Two Dogs and One Futon
Three friends, two dogs, one futon: the perfect formula for a summer road trip. Reddit user thezim0090 recently shared this collection of photos from three of his friends, who decided to document a cross-country road trip by capturing lighthearted portraits of themselves seated with their two dogs on their van’s futon in the middle of amazing landscapes.
Starting in Vermont, the group made their way to places like Alaska and California over the course of four months. At each location, the friends set up a camera and tripod, piled onto the worn futon with their dogs, and struck casual poses in front of stunning mountains, lakes, fields, and canyons. Sharp-eyed viewers will notice that in each photo, whether the travel buddies are in Big Sur or near the Gulkana River, one of the three friends is looking away from the camera, adding a fun sense of action and continuity to their road trip mementos.
