Dr. David Christopher Lane: Tom Blake - The Surfer and His Philosophy (and Other Controversial Subjects)

Dr. David Christopher Lane: Tom Blake - The Surfer and His Philosophy (and Other Controversial Subjects)

August 17, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt interviews author of Tom Blake: A Surfer’s Philosophy, Dr. David Christopher Lane.  Dr. Lane is a professor of philosophy and sociology at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, California who specializes in the study of new religious movements including cults and the interface between science and religion.  He is known for his book The Making of a Spiritual Movement: The Untold Story of Paul Twitchell and Eckankar which exposed the origins of Eckankar and demonstrated the plagiarism of its founder, Paul Twitcell.  Dr. Lane is also an avid surfer and bodysurfer, having won the World Bodysurfing Contest in 1999 and the International Bodysurfing Contest 8 times between 1997-2016.

In this episode, Derik and Dr. Lane chat in detail about American swimmer, lifeguard, stunt man, inventor, writer, early vegetarian, philosopher and one of the most influential surfers in history and founder of California surf culture, Tom Blake.  Described by his biographer Gary Lynch as the obvious link between the ancient South Pacific waterman and the twentieth century Anglo waterman, Blake was born March 8, 1902 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Dr. Lane informs us that Blake’s mother died when he was only 11 months old and his father abandoned him when he was still a toddler.  He didn’t graduate high school.  His marriage lasted less than a year and he had no children.  He had very little money.  He lived most of his life by himself.  Some regarded him as a beach bum.  Yet, his simple philosophy radically changed the lives of millions in less than a century.  His achievements include: 

  • 1922 – set the world swimming record in the ten-mile open
  • 1926 – first person to surf Malibu, along with Sam Reid
  • 1928 – won the first Pacific Coast Surfriding Championship
  • 1928 – invented the hollow paddleboard
  • 1929 – invented the water-proof camera housing
  • 1931 – invented the sailboard
  • 1931 – patented and manufactured the first production surfboard
  • 1932 – won the Catalina Paddleboard Race
  • 1935 – invented the surfboard fin, aka. Skeg or keel
  • 1935 – published his first book solely devoted to surfing, Hawaiian Surfboard (republished in 1983 as Hawaiian Surf Riders)
  • 1937 – produced and patented the first torpedo buoy and rescue ring, both made of “dua-aluminum”
  • 1940’s – behind the first production sailboards
  • 1969 - in Surfing magazine, authored an early draft of Voice of the Atom, a wave-riding-inspired religious philosophy, the core equation of which, Nature = God, he later carved this into a rock in Wisconsin
  • 1982 – published Voice of the Atom
  • Being a leader in physical fitness, natural foods and healthy diet
  • Virtually began the surfing lifestyle as we know it

For more on Blake, get a copy of Tom Blake: The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman by Gary Lynch or the Tom Blake Scrapbook, both available online at https://shacc.org/ from Croul Publishers in Newport Beach.

DISCLAIMER

In this episode with Dr. David Christopher Lane, I also discuss controversial topics including, but not limited to: capitalism, Catholicism, cults, Kundalini yoga, modern education, politics, religion, yoga and the spiritual leader, Yogi Bhajan.  The views and opinions expressed are those of myself, Derik Hyatt and Dr. David Christopher Lane and are by no means meant to persuade others one way or another.  It is simply a conversation between two people expressing their thoughts.

Catherine Bruhwiler - International Surfing Day with Canada’s First Female Pro Surfer

Catherine Bruhwiler - International Surfing Day with Canada’s First Female Pro Surfer

July 27, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with Canada’s first female Pro Surfer, Catherine Bruhwiler.

Catherine is a lifelong local Tofino surfer who loves to spend most of her time in the ocean. A talented surfer with a beautiful style, Catherine is an incredible ambassador for her hometown of Tofino, B.C as a first-generation surfer in Canada. Now a surf coach and surf mom of one of Canada’s first Surfing Olympic hopefuls, Kalum Bruhwiler Temple; Catherine represented Canada at the Pan American Games in 2019 as one of the first members of the Canadian Surf Team. As one of the 9 qualified SUP Surf females in the Americas, this was an unbelievable dream come true for one of Canada’s first professional surfers. Catherine has 2 children, 9 nieces and nephews and a grandchild she loves to surf with.

Catherine grew up surfing the cold waters of the Northwest Pacific coast, on northern Vancouver Island, with her 3 brothers, at a time when there were no other females in the water. Growing up on the rugged beaches, they would explore and hike through dense forests, remote beaches, often in massive rain storms, looking for remote beaches to surf. They would camp out in in the wilderness for days at a time on their surf trips, fishing and foraging for their meals. She and her brothers were young pirates, exploring the coast of Vancouver Island and often other countries, on their quest for their golden treasure; the perfect wave. These cold remote waters and forests of Canada are home to Catherine.

Catherine is an inspiration and ambassador for young girls, as she has won the Woman’s National Canadian Surf title many times and makes the podium in every long-distance paddle board race and surf contest she enters. She won the 2017 and 2019 Canada’s National Women’s SUP Surf Championships and in December of 2017 and 2018 in Peru, qualified for a spot the Canadian Team for the 2019 Pan American Games. She continues competing and winning awards in both local and international surf and SUP events.

Catherine helps run the local Boardriders Surf Club on Canada’s west coast and runs the annual free and very well attended kid’s surf contest, the Bruhwiler Kids Surf Classic, with her family. Catherine often travels with the Junior Canadian Surf Team as a coach.

As a Paddle Canada and ISA SUP and Surf Instructor (Levels 1&2) and Instructor Trainer for Flatwater SUP, SUP surfing, surfing and SUP touring, she coaches surfing and paddle boarding full time. She loves surfing with and coaching the local kids and is very committed to inspiring and motivating the younger surfers to keep their aspirations and passions alive.

Catherine is an active volunteer and ambassador for a few environmental organizations including Surfrider Foundation and helps promote education around protection of the ocean and beaches. Her business, events and personal brand team up to fundraise, educate and promote environmental actions. She believes that in sharing her love of nature with others and helping them fully enjoy it she can help foster inspiration in others to care and protect the ocean.

When she is not teaching and coaching surfing with her brothers Sepp and Raph or out on the water paddle boarding, she will be found traveling, camping and surfing the remote coastal surf breaks with her family and friends, finding new waves and slices of heaven on Vancouver Island’s remote coastline.  With her vast experience growing up on the ocean and surfing, Catherine brings a wealth of local knowledge to all her endeavours.

Catherine is sponsored by Werner Paddles, Live to Surf, and Aftanas Surfboards and is the proud Owner and Operator of Tofino Paddle Surf.

Madeline “Maddi” Leblanc - Getting ‘On Board’ a SUP to Battle Cancer

Madeline “Maddi” Leblanc - Getting ‘On Board’ a SUP to Battle Cancer

July 20, 2020

If you google the word passion, you’ll find its definition means ‘strong barely controllable emotion’.  In this episode, I chat with Madeline “Maddi” Leblanc, about her passion or stoke for stand up paddle boarding and charitable causes.

Maddi was born and raised in Welland, Ontario, CAN a small quaint community located in the heart of the Niagara Region. Her journey began when she was only ten years old, watching two men paddle on SUP’s in Lake Huron, Ontario, CAN. When they came in from the water she approached them and they had offered to let her try their boards. The minute she hopped on she immediately fell in love with gliding on-top of the water. Since that day she only continued to beg her parents to buy a board. They struck a deal that they would help her purchase her first board if she would pay for half of it, and it would be her only Christmas present that year. Years passed and in December of 2012 she had received her first paddle board. In 2013 she took her board out for the first time on the Welland Canal, and it was at that moment that she had come up with the idea of her current fundraiser ‘On Board’.

In 2011, Maddi lost two friends due to two different types of cancer. The pain was unbearable and she did not know where to put that pain. The loss of her friends Lynn Lambert and Julia Turner hit not only Maddi deeply, but also the community of Welland and she knew she had to do something to give back to honour her friends.

Maddi launched On Board in 2014 and has been running the event annually ever since, raising over $40,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society specifically for brain cancer research. Since creating the fundraiser, sponsors had introduced her to the world of SUP racing which has completely turned Maddi’s life around.

In 2016 Maddi began SUP racing and has been forever changed by the competitive side of the sport. In 2017 she claimed the Ontario SUP Series overall Open Female Category winner, as well as the ‘MVP’ (most valued paddler) award for her On Board efforts. At the end of the season she signed on as a team rider with ‘Starboard’ one of the worlds leading SUP companies. In 2018 she made an even bigger statement winning the overall Elite Female Category with the Ontario SUP Series, as well as taking the overall win and the yellow jersey at the 2018 and 2019 Mammoth Race in Toronto.

When Maddi is not on the water she dedicates her time to inspiring others to work hard and chase after their dreams. She does this through guest lectures at her school, providing inspirational talks in her local community and beyond, as well as sitting on panel discussions about women in sport. Currently Maddi is working on her Masters thesis at Brock University, where she hopes to inspire the world of academia with her research in the outdoor recreation and environment sector. Maddi also is a certified WPA Level 1 instructor and teaches SUP Kids at Paddle Niagara during the summer months. Maddi hopes to combine her passions to create meaningful impact in her future career while motivating her peers to do the same.

Maddi says “If Lynn and Julia taught me anything, it is that life is too short so if you want something bad enough, go out there and get it! Have fun, and be kind along the way.”

Vince Deur: “Unsalted” - 15 Years Since the Perfect Wave at Stony Point

Vince Deur: “Unsalted” - 15 Years Since the Perfect Wave at Stony Point

July 10, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with Great Lakes surfer and filmmaker, Vince Deur from his home in Grand Haven, Michigan as he reflects on his experience directing the 2005 56-minute film, “Unsalted: A Great Lakes Experience,” which follows Vince on a road trip around the 5 Great Lakes to meet and surf with other landlocked surfers.

The film begins with videotape footage Vince recorded in November 1990, when he nearly drowned while surfing Lake Superior near Whitefish Point.  Vince had been caught in a rip current for about an hour, trying futilely to swim to shore, before being suddenly released by the current. Back on dry land, he pledged on camera that he would one day make a film about surfing the Great Lakes.  Unsalted combines home movies of lake surfing going as far back as the 1960’s with contemporary footage culled from 150 hours of filming.

The documentary ends on January 22, 2005, when Vince and several pro-surfers from the Ocean Pacific surf team reached the tip of Lake Superior, 24 kilometers northeast of Duluth, Minnesota, in Stony Point, to encounter the "biggest, cleanest ... most ocean like wave" Vince had ever seen on a lake.  The film would go on to screen at film festivals on four continents, with Vince becoming a contact person for surfers around the world who wanted to experience surfing the Great Lakes.

You can connect with Vince on Twitter @vincedeur and watch his videos on Vimeo and his YouTube channelUnsalted: A Great Lakes Experience is available for purchase on Amazon.

Pastor “Waikiki” Jack Nordgren: The Greatest Story Ever Told (About Surfing on Lake Michigan)

Pastor “Waikiki” Jack Nordgren: The Greatest Story Ever Told (About Surfing on Lake Michigan)

July 3, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt interviews Great Lakes and Hawaiian surfer and the author of Life Lessons from Proverbs (Practical applications for life from the book of Proverbs), A Lake Surfer’s Journey, Wave Chasers (Searching for Surf on Lake Michigan), Wave Chasers 2 (Searching for Surf on the Great Lakes) and S.U.R.F Journal, Pastor “Waikiki” Jack Nordgren.

Jack was born and raised on the South side of Chicago. At the ripe young age of 15 he absolutely fell, head over heels, in love with surfing. His friends asked him to try out their boards while on summer vacation in Michigan.  He then became as he terms it, a surf-a-holic.  He ate, breathed, and lived surfing.

After high school, to avoid the draft, he joined the Navy. There he spent almost 2 years aboard a nuclear submarine.  During that time, he married his high school sweetheart, Maree, but also began to experiment with drugs.  Through a series of heart-wrenching events he came to the end of his perverbial rope.  He then began reading the Bible. God revealed Himself to Jack and he asked Jesus to take over his whole life.  He soon led Jack and his family to a ministry in Waikiki Beach.

In 1984, a small Bible study of ex-drug dealers and users, under Jack's leadership became Hope Chapel South Shore.  After 22 years of pastoring and surfing in Waikiki Beach, he and his wife moved to Michigan to continue ministering and surfing.  Jack has since retired and returned to Waikiki to surf and spend time with his 11 grandchildren.

Join us in this episode as Jack shares his humble 1960’s surf beginnings on Lake Michigan, his time in the Navy, surrendering to God and ministering in Hawaii, surfing, faith and he even offers up valuable marriage advice.

Connect with Jack Nordgren at http://waikikijacks.com/ or on Facebook and Instagram @jacknordgren.  His books are available on Amazon, including: Life Lessons from Proverbs (Practical applications for life from the book of Proverbs), A Lake Surfer’s Journey, Wave Chasers (Searching for Surf on Lake Michigan), Wave Chasers 2 (Searching for Surf on the Great Lakes) and S.U.R.F Journal.

Chris Dyer: Visionary Skate Artist on Lockdown

Chris Dyer: Visionary Skate Artist on Lockdown

June 19, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt interviews Visionary Artist, Chris Dyer.  Chris grew up in Lima, Peru till age 17, where he was involved in 80’s skateboarding, 90’s surfing and street gang destructive activities.  He later moved to Canada to study art.  Today he is based in Montreal, where he works out of his home studio “The Positive Portal.”  Chris’ art is rooted in the skateboard culture he has been part of since he was a young boy, when he would draw his own board graphics.  That eventually led him to working in the California and worldwide skate industry, doing graphics for a variety of well-respected brands.  More recently, he was Art Director of California‘s Creation Skateboards, and these days he continues to do graphics for a bunch of big brands in the industry including Deathwish and Santa Cruz skateboards.  Because of his unique style of psychedelic art, and high productivity, Chris has become one of the leading figures of the North American Visionary Art scene.  This position has given him the chance to act as a bridge between the spiritual movement and both the street art and skate art movements.  Some of his broader artistic themes include consciousness, truth, oneness, introspection, personal development and kindness.  Chris manages his own Art brand, Positive Creations, which offers a variety of quality apparel and artsy accessories.  His work of all kinds is slowly reaching out of the underground, thanks to many magazines and books sharing his trippy art. It is the uniqueness of his honest soul expressions, and a solid social media presence that has helped him find his own following. Chris’ biggest joy is to make his fans happy and to meet up with them at the different events he performs at, so make sure to catch him somewhere and give him a nice hug.  Join Derik and Chris in this episode as they discuss Chris’ views on COVID-19, the last 10 years of his career, experiences with Ayahuasca, and the wacky rules of home ownership in Peru.

Learn more about Chris Dyer at www.positivecreations.net and follow him on Facebook at chrisdyerspositivecreations, Instagram at chris_dyer, Twitter at positivecreator and on his YouTube Channel.  His documentary can be viewed at https://positivecreations.ca/documentary/ and his Artventure videos at https://positivecreations.ca/category/videos/adventure-series/.  Also, be sure to check out his Positive Creations Hardback Book  and Chris Dyer Colouring Book.
