#walkingupthepointwednesday with the Barrett Brothers from Australia. They were getting in a fun surf at Rincon this evening on their annual California Road Trip in February of 2013. I shot this with lomography 35mm ISO 100 color negative film. #filmisnotdead #35mm #canonelan7 #rincon #rinconincalifornia #surfers #surfing #california #lomographyfilm #barrettbrothers #mattsonculbertphoto

Hyped to have a film 📷 that has a double exposure option. I’m gonna be messing around with this a lot more. Rad Skate Missions with @CodyMcentire #CanonElan7

Miss surfing with these dudes. @nathan_frohlich looks on as @jacekennedy1 shows him the color of his fins. This is actually shot with lomography film and my old 35mm camera. I captured this in May of 2013 in Santa Barbara. Be up north next weekend guys lets surf. #jacekennedy #grom #groms #surfing #surfers #sb #mesalane #santabarbara #throwingthetailwithjace #lomographyfilm #filmisnotdead #35mm #canonelan7 #california #pacificocean #mattsonculbertphoto

"Eyeing the Prize" one of the most stylish underground surfers in the 805 area code Mr. Dan Fowler @4fowlersgo finding the juice at Rincon in November of 2005.

These fall like conditions the last few days keep reminding of December 2004. As simple as this picture is it’s one of my favorites I’ve taken because it’s one of the few times I’ve nailed a speed blur on film. The legendary “F-Dog” @fred_villela at one of his favorite hideouts. Shot with #fujivelviaslidefilm and my #canonelan7 #35mm #waybackwednesday #filmisnotdead #fdog #fredvillela #surfingspeedblur #surfing #surfer #offshorebarrel #mattsonculbertphoto

"Backside Blur" my friend @davidsuhadolnik getting some airtime at Rincon in February of 2013. I shot this with lomography color negative 100 ISO 35mm film and slowed the shutter speed down a bit. I ended up getting a pretty cool blurred effect. #lomographyfilm #filmisnotdead #35mmcamera #canonelan7 #backdiseaerial #rinconincalifornia #pacificocean #surfing #mattsonculbert #mattsonculbertphoto

#tbt to one of my lone adventures through the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. This is Warriewood Beach looking north towards Mona Vale. I shot this in the middle of November in 2004 with #fujivelviaslidefilm on my #canonelan7 #35mmcamera #filmisnotdead #australia #oz #northernbeaches #northernbeachesofsydney #warriewood #warriewoodbeach #thelanddownunder #mattsonculbertphoto

#tbt shot of Avalon Beach located in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. I always wanted to see “Little Avalon” after watching Kelly Slater surf it in the famous Quiksilver surf video 110/240. Unfortunately I was there the wrong time of year in November of 2004.

"The Pass" this was was shot in Byron Bay, Australia at the Pass on a really beautiful day in November of 2004. Can’t believe it’s almost been ten years. I wanna go back next year. #australia #byronbay #thepassinbyronbay #morethantheoutback #newsouthwales #filmisnotdead #35mmcamera #fujivelviaslidefilm #beachinoz #canonelan7 #mattsonculbert #mattsonculbertphoto

"December Offshores" one of the most beautiful days I’ve had the chance to shoot a few days before Christmas 2004. C-Street and all of Ventura County was firing with flawless conditions and 3-6ft surf this day. #filmisnotdead #fujivelviaslidefilm #fujifilm #35mmcamera #canonelan7 #cstreet #surferspoint #surfers #venturacalifornia #mattsonculbert #pacificocean #mattsonculbertphoto

At home going through my archives and found this one from a day or two after New Year’s Day 2003 of underground surf legend #JohnVillela at his beloved County Line. Always surfing ahead of his time with a bag full of aerial tricks inspired by Christian Fletcher’s repertoire but John could put it on rail really well.

Thinking about my time in Byron Bay, Australia from almost 10 years ago today. “The Pass” is a really fun wave that I’d go and take photos of at different times of the day. Such a diverse and playful wave. Circa November 2004 shot with Fuji velvia slide film. #filmisnotdead #fujivelviaslidefilm #canonelan7 #byronbay #thepass #thepassinbyronbay #australia #byronbayaustralia #ocean #waves #mattsonculbertphoto

One of my favorite people and best Japanese friends turns 35 today. Happy Birthday “Toru San” @toruogawagto you are a legend. Shot at Rincon in February of 2013 with lomography ISO 100 color negative film. It’s fitting that I post a picture of Toru at Rincon because it’s the reason he ended up in USA was to surf there. 15 years later he’s still here.
