Ad Hoc Assemblages: At home with Charles Adler and his well curated artifacts.

"Much like the contents of his roost, Adler - fit, tattooed, and deceptively young-ish in visage - remains a hidden gem: one part industry salt and two parts affable, consanguineous waterman.   One wouldn't be wrong in classifying him as the Kevin Bacon of surfing: the degrees of separation between the man and the culture's various shakers are intimately tangled.  His reputation as one of the most reliable, versatile, and creative minds in the surf business, combined with his predisposed curiosity for our chosen pastime's more granular details, has resulted in a veritable taxidermy of analog, surf-themed artifacts."
