Russ Roe is our East Coast sales guy, among other things, although by the looks of this video he should seriously consider crossing over to the dark side of media and design. Surfing in the north east U.S. during winter takes massive strength and even bigger nerves. That long walk across snow covered sand knowing… Read More.
Sometimes it’s fun to stop and flip back through photos to see all the moments missed by the pressure to push on. Here’s a sort of greatest hits from the past month that, when in the moment, probably didn’t matter quite as much as they do to us now. We hope to keep finding the… Read More.
A Late Summer Swell
While we were out and about last week for Surf Expo in Orlando, our backyard was blessed with another round of epic swell, warm days, and even warmer water. As jealous as we were to not be able to partake, we were stoked that our bud Ryan Croteau took full advantage. Hopefully we get the… Read More.
San O Daze
This past Friday we dipped out early from the office and headed down to San O for some brews and burgers. After being on a bit of a heater the past two months running around trade show to trade show we thought it best to have a celebration of sorts. The swell mildly kicked up,… Read More.
Vaste in Nicaragua
We got linked up with Abraham Ramirez and a few of his buddies recently. I don’t really remember how, but we’re happy as a clam that we did. Him and his friends are creating content under the name Vaste (follow them here) and they are currently running through Nicaragua. So far, they caught some epic… Read More.
EGGS IN THE SAND & the ROAD TO SURF SUMMIT
“Do we ever have to leave ?” This is what each of us are asking ourselves as the second to last and last days of this trip draw nearer. Nobody wants the vibe to change. Everyone has such good energy. The campsite we have turned into our home has such a familiar smell and feel that… Read More.
Humbled. We were luckily invited to live in paradise and sleep under the stars in Mexico, by a league of true gentleman / mangey mutts & to run wild on a trip that has been taking place for 15+ years without us. Thank you guys !! Here is the first batch of images from our… Read More.
Carlsbad Quick Trip
Buried beneath our desks and beaten by the day in and day out stress of the small business work load can absolutely crush the weak of will. The pace around our office is relentless, and it’s easy to keep your head down plowing away for weeks on end with no light at the end of… Read More.
Our sincere compliments go out to the very talented gents involved in the launch of SEVEN this past Saturday night. What a good fucking time ?!!

The Rocko Trunk ~ Ink Blot
Ever have that one friend that is kind of good at practically everything ?? He / she doesn’t always have to dedicate 100% to anything specific or work too terribly hard at achieving the desired goal either. No matter how foreign the subject or unattainable a goal may be , often just a simple go at… Read More.
Love My Joshy
Josh Edwards is an outgoing , creative , rad individual who we are proud to call our friend.

THE FIRST OFFERING ~ SP15
Costa Mesa, around 3:30 am is a cold time of night almost any day of the year. Adrenaline is running though and the boys are loading up the trucks and headed straight into certain great adventures.

Drew Martin ~ Youth Curated

High hopes and over zealous forecasts create so much hype , especially when it is in regards to opening season, in any region on any planet. Even more so in Southern California. With the extra long summer coming to an end and our favorite Puerto Rican wave slider’s extended trip winding down, we succumbed to… Read More.
Quick Cut L ~ Through

TROPICAL CYCLONE LOWELL ~ RAINBOW CHI
“Keep your eyes on this one gents” said Jon Warren – good friend of ours who also happens to be one of the head forecasters at Surfline. ” I’m expecting it to be a pretty good time.” He is usually dead on so we took his advice and pulled a few of the larger boards… Read More.
You may or may not know but mythically, says a little birdie, “there is this secret little wave someplace special that kinda rhymes with ‘fell bow which breaks a bit better than most during steep south swells.” Enough about that, as it’s not entirely the focus here so let’s move past the riddle. If I… Read More.
The Youth Curated
Without the group of people surrounding us, we’d be nothing. We’re so fortunate to have such a close knit group of creatives, all wanting to collaborate for their own personal growth and to push the possibilities of what it means to create. For over a year now, we’ve been working closely with people that are… Read More.
2014 Matster’s Golf Tourney with Surfside
Our friends over at Surfside invited us to come crash their party, run wild with their girls, smash some tinies, have some laughs, eat some twinkies, rip our Harleys down the fairway and play some golf in this year’s Matster’s Golf Tournament. Since we don’t know how to pass on a good time… We loaded… Read More.
County Line by Brandon Harman
Brandon Harman took a trip out to County Line for some of Neptune’s Net’s famous clam chowder, beers, and a little shred.

el Metal Roca , Los Cabos Mexico ~ Rated R
We all need to surf more. The industry as a whole feels this way. It’s an endless deprivation that needs to be met with no agenda or scheduled office time. SIMA brilliantly has an event that satisfies those cravings which we are all afflicted with. It’s called Surf Summit and it traditionally has taken place… Read More.
Cinco de Camping
Even though the U.S. kind of embellishes Cinco De Mayo, it’s still a great excuse to party. So, what better way to celebrate another nation’s sort-of-celebrated holiday then by rounding up some friends to head out and sleep under the stars, drink some tequila and ride some waves together. Quick trips close to home are… Read More.
The Picks ~ LJ O’Leary
In a perfect world, we’d make everything to support every interest that everyone at ourCaste had, creating a sort of super-brand-one-stop-shop. Helmets for the bikes, knives, liquor, and everything else under the sun. But, we can’t…yet. So, in the meantime, we thought we’d share our Picks with you, showcasing the styles that us an individuals… Read More.
Severe shore break, wild dumpy board killers, deadly little neck breakers, sincere courage testers and a few rare claim worthy dream tunnels marched their way to this Orange County fickle zone one said ‘Big Friday.

Drew ( Martin ) woke us up bright and shiny , almost too early, but with enough enthusiasm to get us going this stormy Saturday that was blatantly begging ‘STAY IN BED!’ Drew’s smile and spirit are far too intoxicating so we had no choice but to nod and get our arses moving. Plus if… Read More.
Last summer we spent a view days running around with Host Creative in an effort to work out some production schedules and logistics for a larger project we are putting together with them. We were lucky enough to get some solid use out of a Red Epic with a full range of CP2 lens’s. If you’ve not… Read More.
Doing it from the heart with the natural ability to ‘eyeball it… That’s what’s up! Few and far are those creative individuals that possess such skill. We find ourselves naturally gravitating towards them, becoming inspired & driven by those types. Eye Symmetry Surfboards demonstrates that hunger and will to persevere despite any opposition. Competing in… Read More.
Warm Winter ~ Jason Harris
Heavy long spells of no waves & shitty ones when they did come. Most lusting to surf feel a bit on the grey and gloomy side even though it’s 85 and dreamy out. We’ve been trying to stay up. ourCaste showroom is straight across from the beach though, so we’ve had a daily reminder about… Read More.

Innocnts went someplace special and brought us back something even more special. Get lost for a few in his adventure. ourCaste Words: Innocnts Sometimes relationships don’t go the way we had hoped.

Not so much an archive as it is a photo dump, these posts are a culmination of both recent work and past forgotten gems. We don’t sit on imagery here, it acts as a road block to the future creative process when you have a safety net of imagery stocked. Share some of your stories… Read More.
ALOHAAA! We had a shin dig with one of our favorite San Diego accounts Aloha Sunday for a series of type-altered landscapes we put together with Staff Photographer Brooks Sterling. The series, appropriately titled “ALOHA!”, consists of landscape images Brooks shot ranging from the Arizona desert to the central California coast, and even some Hawaiian… Read More.
We took advantage of some recent swell, which was largely over hyped this time around, to see what the Wedge looks like through the lens of a Hassleblad. These cameras are far more known as a studio workhorse for fashion photographers throughout the 1980’s and 90’s. We’d like to think it does a decent job… Read More.

Messages ~ FA13 Newport Beach
As a young brand we’ve got a lot to say to a lot of people in a little time. We figured, why not set up a series of large format posters with the thoughts we have had running through our minds as an installation for all to see? This first series titled “Messages” was set… Read More.
