Sea Bass, Ronnie Nelson, and Brenno fueled up on some silver bullets and decided to paddle out at rock piles on a stand up board. The slam at 1:30 is all time.

Sea Bass and the Oakley team took on the challenge of Imaginarium. They were given the color yellow. When they first started brainstorming for this project Bass came to us said make me a new batch of boards and make them yellow. Below is more information on Imaginarium and make sure to look at Sea Bass and the rest of the Oakley Team in the new issue of TransWorld SURF and be sure to check back on TransWorldSURF.com for the final videos.
Three Teams. Three Destinations. Three Colors. One Winner.
In the tradition of TransWorld’s groundbreaking photography contests that include TransWorld SKATEboarding’s “Skate And Create” and TransWorld Snowboarding’s “Team Shootout,” here is the first-ever surf photography challenge that tests the surfers, the photographer, the brain-trust at each company, and eventually the reader—hopefully changing the way we all view surf photography.
Three teams of four surfers started their photographic journey by picking (at random) their “theme color,” which will be dictated by one of the four colors of the CMYK color model: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. After picking their “theme color,” teams were given a month long window where they let loose on the world and had to choose the location to shoot their piece, resulting in an eight-page showcase in TransWorld SURF magazine, video and gallery on transworldsurf.com, and the winning team’s best shot being showcased on the cover of TransWorld SURF.
Using lighting, props, obstacles, outfits, and anything else they want, the teams scattered around the globe and came back with the goods.
How It Works:
-Four teams were chosen (one team had to drop out due to unforseen circumstances) to create an eight-page article for TransWorld SURF, as well as a five-minute video for transworldsurf.com.
-The teams had the entire month of June 2010 to go anywhere in the world to shoot their article.
-No photoshop allowed.
-The final submissions was judged by the TransWorld SURF staff, as well as TransWorld SNOWboarding Photo Editor Nick Hamilton and TransWorld SKATEboarding Editor Ben Kelly.
-A submission of ten photos was judged. Any sequences will take up the judged space of one photo. The photos were judged as a group and made up 50 percent of the overall score. The remaining 50 percent of the overall score was determined with 25-percent focus on creativity, and the other 25 percent on the teams’ video.
Winning team gets the cover and a pass into next year’s Imaginarium.

Just met up with Bass last night in Newport and dropped off 3 freshies for him to try and ride in the US Open. This batch was a little different than his last few batches because they were shaped with Huntington Style slop in mind.
Far Left Board: 6'1" x 18 1/2" x 2 1/4" SeaGull 2 - Round Squash
Bass has gotten a lot bigger over the last year, so Steve decided to get him on something quite a bit bigger than what he is used to. This is a full 1/4" wider than what he has been riding and 1/16" thicker. This will most likely be his go to board for punchier surf.
Middle Board: 6'1" x 18 1/2" x 2 3/16" SeaGull 2 - Round Squash
This is a little closer to what Bass has been riding for the last year except it is a 1/4" wider and the newer version of the SeaGull. Steve has been working on a updated SeaGull model for quite awhile now and this is the result. A little bit deeper single concave, slightly flatter entry rocker, same pulled in nose template and tapered rail.
Far Right Board: 5'10" x 19" x 2 3/8-" Piggy - Wide Squash
The Piggy model has been one of our best selling models in Japan for a few years and is just now becoming very popular in the USA. It is basically a Pic with flatter entry rocker, wider nose and tail, and a slightly boxier rail. Geared towards smaller, mushier waves. This will be Bass' go to board if it is a classic Huntington swell for this year's US Open.
All Bass' boards have Future Fins and have the following glass job: 4 - 4 3/4 Oz Deck, 4 Oz Bottom. Top and Bottom layers S-Cloth

SB better half is featured in Reef's new movie, Cancer to Capricorn the movie is available for download on Surfline.com for FREE. The movie is very avant garde with new filters and dolly's on the beach. Very artsy color corrections and the REEF girls. With a soundtrack to match. Who could ask for more from a FREE movie.
