From their respective homes in Brooklyn and Venice Beach, longtime friends Drew Innis and Matt Titone hold down both coasts with their online surfing outfit, Indoek. With their creative backgrounds in photography and graphic design, the boys have created the consumate culture for surfers with a keen eye for aesthetics. Music, videos, teepees, you name it. If it’s on the beach and you need it, they’ll tell you what’s good.
Jenny Bahn: Where do you consider an escape this holiday season?
Matt Titone: Since I am not traveling home this year, I consider my backyard my escape this holiday season. We’ll have one of our Wavewam teepees set up back there next to the fire pit. It is a nice little hangout shelter for reading or napping in. I also plan on going camping…[MORE] more up north — of course bringing the teepee along for the ride! It’s such a good beach and camping accessory, it makes a nice mobile “escape”.
JB: What was your most glorious moment of 2013?
Drew Innis: Launching our Indoek Kickstarter and getting funded was the most glorious moment. It was a full-time job managing the campaign and it was really rewarding to not only reach our goal, but exceed it.
JB: Top five things you pack when leaving town?
DI: 1) Camera, 2) Wax kit, 3) Flannels, 4) Surf trucks, 5) Good reading material
JB: Any goals for 2014? Dare we day the word “resolution”?
MT: Our goals for Indoek are simply to keep creating more original content and products.
JB: What’s your fav eBay find ever?
MT: I found some amazing old ’70s LUI magazines on eBay recently — absolute gems. They are so beautifully art directed and inspiring. Great articles. too ;)
DI: Several years ago, I found a great deal on a vintage, mint-condition Polaroid SLR 680 camera. The seller had found it in his grandfather’s closet unopened and in the original packaging.
