23 year old super surfer John John Florence's movie View from a blue moon is releasing on December 1,2015 and man are we stoked. The biopic features incomparable videography by Blake Vincent Kueny and if the trailer is anything to go by it sports some shots Nat Geo would be jealous of. Shot entirely in crisp 4K resolution with helicopter assisted arial shots, this movie looks to be the dream film for water sports and camera fanatics alike. Florence, one of the top surfers ever, documents his rise from being "just a kid" from Hawaii and takes us along for the ride in fine style. I know, i know, you cant wait right ? for now wet your appetite with this trailer and get ready for December 1st on Itunes and Vimeo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTqVqk7FSmY
If you're reading this blog post, it's probably because you got linked to it in an e-mail we sent you so that you could find out more. And that's exactly what this page is for. We want to earn a friendship and relationship with your club for years to come and always be there to sponsor and support you guys as we all grow together. So hit us up, let's work together this year, and let ELEVATED make your club's apparel. It has been a goal of ELEVATED's for a while now to really immerse ourselves in the culture of Collegiate Action Sports. The idea first came when we moved our brand from Northwest Montana to Los Angeles in 2010, ironically, right after I (Machi Block) graduated from college myself. We were new to Southern California and we wanted to find a foothold for the brand so that we could continue to grow and reach new audiences. That foothold came first from Alliance Wake pointing us toward Arizona to get involved in the AWA Wake Scene, which we
In these modern times, can you even fathom it? Some of us remember it, albeit just barely. To those of us who do, does it even feel possible? I'm talking about a day without the internet. Don't you remember, the feel of life... unplugged? Don't you remember the connections that used to exist between people? The conversation, the life, the activity, the full emersion into your current situation, place, and time? Not to idealize it, but to recall it? I challenge you, all of you who remember, and those of you who have never known it, to pursue random days in your life, without the internet. Seek to be fully alive, and fully aware. Get out, Live Life to the Fullest. Dream, play, love, relax, and live. Be fully present with those who accompany you. Cut ties, for a day, with all of those not in your immediate sphere of influences. Smile at those around you. Engage in conversation. Live a day fully alive, fully you, fully free. I believe this type of action is necessary for all of
Surfing in Iceland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWeLfTHorUQ Surfers Hodei Collazo, Imanol Yeregi, and Natxo Gonzalez take journey to some of the coldest waters on earth. Starting with shots of the seemingly endless ice and snow, this video could be mistaken for a winter travelogue to Iceland at first glance. We see frigid waters and blue mountains, the northern lights and those that light up their surfboards, grassy green fields and an orange sun. With all of it's natural beauty, it's no wonder why surfers want to go to Iceland; however, it has only been made possible by the new technological advances in wetsuits. Chilly waters that prevent s
Surf Culture: ELEVATED Clothing On the List- Jake Stiles 2 We recently launched a new sponsorship platform at ELEVATED Clothing where we pool up-and-coming athletes together who are seeking sponsorships. We call it ELEVATED On The List and it allows our athletes to grow with us and for us to grow with our athletes. We help show them the ropes of what a sponsorship looks like and build with them as they progress. It's a great way for us to get to know them and delve deeper into relationships, preparing up-and-comers for legitimate sponsorships and it's a great way for them to get into some new ELEVATED gear and have access to company perks. Additionally, we can pull noteworthy media out of the group and start bringing exposure to some of these new athletes. One of the first posts that we want to draw attention too is from a young surfer who spends his time split between New York and Puerto Rico. The kid rips! We've got 3 edits from him so far... and this is part 2.
Over the past few months, ELEVATED has teamed up with UMass Surf Club to bring our products to their campus and help them grow the exposure of their club. Talk about a group of hard core surfers that live the life, these guys are dedicated to the water day in and day out, pioneering a collegiate surf movement on their campus in the North East. We've been stoked to get connected with them and start a fruitful relationship that we see yielding a lot of fun for years to come. We hear they were also linking up with the UMass Ski and Snowboard Club for their Winter Rail Jam, so we sent over a box of goodies for them to start rocking and promote with, and needless to say, they paid us back in full. Check out the pictures from the event, and a write-up on the Winter Festival/Rail Jam from their perspective.

Surf Culture: Elevated Team Surfer Cole Taschman Elevated Clothing Team Surfer Cole Taschman has some great sets in Florida when the storms roll in.

Keep an eye on this kid as he's full of relentless determination and skill to match. More than anything, we think he's just out to have a good time and keep the stoke.

No Anchor brings you Super Slow Motion Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing - Sunset Sessions by No Anchor Our homies at No Anchor are continuously producing, what are in our opinion, some of the sickest videos out on the web today for actionsports. They have an eye that most don't, and they constantly prove they have the goods when it comes to beautiful cinematography, inherent story, and capturing action sports heroes. Watch this sunset surf session in Orlando with Logan Hayes and wakeboarding by Parker Bizar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6GhSay2VH0
ELEVATED is fully rooted in Surf Culture. Since moving production to California in 2010, ELEVATED has carefully been carving out it's spot within the surf industry. We believe firmly in supporting surf culture from the ground up. We get involved in grassroots events, we support the up and coming athletes, we sponsor Pro's, and we are becoming heavily involved in events around the world. Our surf athletes stretch from the west coast of California to the sandy bays of Flordia. We fully intend to continue to develop the industry side by side with the other great companies that make the culture we love and breathe. Here on this page you will find all of the media that defines Elevated Surf Culture which we or our athletes and affiliates have produced. Unlike other blog pages where we share Surfing content from across the internet, this page is devoted specifically to all things ELEVATED in the surf culture. http://youtu.be/_pfj3mbAX7Y [caption id="attachment_5528" align="ali
