San Francisco in its Finest Hour

Can we talk about how nice it’s been lately? Seriously, our summer/fall is finally here and we deserve every moment of it. I snapped a few pictures of SF in its finest hour and some of my favorite things about summer: Hanging with friends, surfing, sandy kids and long stretches of Ocean Beach early in the morning when no one is there- one of the best spots in CA.

Hope you all are enjoying our Indian summer like we are.

The New Girl

There's a new girl on our team, Hailey Partridge. She is a rippin' surfer, and tall and gorgeous to boot. She is the newest addition to the Carve roster of women we are honored to support. Her current home town is Santa Cruz. We recently had her in SF for a quick shoot of our current fall collection and were thrilled with the results.

I thought you'd enjoy a behind the scenes photo of our shoot. The photographer is local Erin Kunkel (www.erinkunkel.com), who we're excited to be working with as a new member of our team as well.

Enjoy the footage. And, take a look at our fall collection when you have a chance. Enjoy shipping on us. Use code: BLOG922

The Western Snowy Plover

We've been working hard over here and so have our athletes. Our resident surfer/yoga instructor Kelsey Gallegos went out to the beach to talk to us about the Western Snowy Plover (see our blog post from March 26th). Take a look and make sure you watch out for those little guys on the beach.

Fellow Surfer and Artist Leigh McCarthy

Our love of water runs deep here at Carve Designs and it is something that inspires us on every level. We have come across an artist whose passion for the water is the same as ours. She is based here in San Francisco and is a fellow surfer. I think why we love her work so much is that despite being a southern California girl, she has strong ties to the east coast which is evident in her art. And since we are originally from the east coast we feel a strong connection to her work. Her name is Leigh McCarthy and she is one talented woman. She just had a show on Nantucket, MASS that was hugely successful. The theme to her show was “Shipwrecks” and it seemed appropriate with the hurricane weather that encompassed the eastern seaboard this past weekend. Check out her work that was on display. I proudly bought “Run Aground” and am so excited to hang it up on my wall. It seems like the mood evoked in it matches how we were feeling all summer here in SF- a little smashed up because the weather was so dreadful. She also has a Website with more of her creations and where she will be exhibiting next. We hope you enjoy her work as much as we do.
