• Welcome to the big league

    tumblr_mm0izcJJ4B1spzjxbo1_1280What a surprise when we received the new copy of 6Surf Magazine and stumbled upon this photo of Geert-Jan Middelkoop wearing our Lines Forever shirt! Pretty stoked about it!

  • Foam is your friend

    [twocol_one]niels-foam[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]Wow, Niels dug up his first ‘surf-slash-boogieboard from 1988. Look at this chunk of styrofoam! That thing actually looks like a lot of fun. Maybe we should start making them now with all the finless surf stuff happening everywhere…[/twocol_one_last]

  • It’s all an illusion

    tumblr_mm0j04Njqo1spzjxbo1_1280Wow, check out Niels’ first set up on the left, it’s an Illusion board (about the same quality as Variflex I think). Kind of in between a toy board and a ‘real’ deck. Funny thing is that my first paid-with-my-own-money board was an Illusion as well. Not the best set up but we learned the basics on these things. (think there is a Tony Hawk autograph on it somewhere from a ‘89 Schellingwouderbrug Powell Peralta demo). Look where we are now… some 20 odd years later and we are making our own boards. Sickkkkk!

  • Dufarge propaganda mission

    dufarge-istanbulWhat do you do when you are in Istanbul visiting your girlfriend? Right, put up some stickers and spread the love! Thanks Saïd.

  • First boards are in!

    [twocol_one]tumblr_mm0j0fI4OK1spzjxbo1_1280[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]Finally, our first decks have arrived! Man, unpacking those boxes felt like sinterklaas! Available in three sizes in our shop (or drop buy if you are in desperate need of a fresh shred sled!).[/twocol_one_last]

  • New shirt in the works

    [twocol_one]Botlek zine[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]Our good friend Botlek is working on a new Dufarge shirt. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with. The guy is skilled. Just check out his Flickr page and while you’re there buy some of his mini zines. We did and we love ‘em! They are over here.[/twocol_one_last]

  • Now we are rolling rolling

    [twocol_one]animatiehout2[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]We are finally getting around to putting up the posters on our dufarge webshop. In the meantime here is the animation of the posters that we have shown on the ‘Now We Are Talking Festival’ in Scheveningen early september. A massive thanks to Roger Gaillard for all of his hard work. Check out more of this project on Roger & Cecile’s Behanced page.[/twocol_one_last]

  • That’s how we roll roll

    Surfsurf-scheveningenLast Friday Dufarge was present at the Now We Are Talking Festival in Scheveningen. The festival was hosted by Typeradio (typeradio.org) and saw a massive amount of designers, type lovers, surfers, skaters and all around good people gathering for a day of talks, workshops, beer, surf and skating. Since we like (type) design, surfing, skating and beer we teamed up with Surfsurf blog (surfsurf.nl) and our Swiss design friend Roger Gaillard (rogergaillard.com) and designed a poster for this festival. The font was custom made for the occasion (inspired by a vintage surf ad), cut into lino and hand pressed onto 30 posters. Together these 30 posters form an animation that shows the origin of rolling. So when the sun went down we set up the beamer, stacked a table with Dufarge shirts and opened a few beers.
    Anyway, we have bunch of these posters left and they will be for sale in the shop pretty soon. Only 30 made, extremely insanely exclusive limited edition stuff! No way! Yes way.

  • Insane new cam at Hoek van Holland

    Hoekhoek-webcamThis just in:

    Surfsurf.nl hooked the Hoek van Holland locals up with a brand new webcam. The new cam is better situated than the one there is already, it is HD and streaming. We love it! This is what they have to say about the initiative:

    Who wouldn’t want to have a beach front house with a clear view of your home surf spot? Waves minutes away from your comfy chair and fresh cup of coffee… Well, since that is not going to happen anytime soon SURFSURF teamed up with beach club Dechi Beach and came up with a pretty good alternative: a HD (streaming) cam aimed at our beloved local spot Hoek van Holland. Now you can check the surf from your not quite beach front house and still have that cup of coffee in your comfy chair…

    Thanks to Dechi Beach for their assistance, patience and the best après surf sandwich in Hoek van Holland!

    Enjoy the view!
