Downtown New York-- a place where the hip and cool congregate, where those dressed with insouciant chicness exhale a slow drag of smoke on the sidewalk, tipping their Panama hats and Wayfarers effortless to portray a disheveled perfection; where everyone opt to dine al fresco at the first hints of sunshine or spring, sipping Bloody Marys and Mimosas like it's always the weekend. Eating, drinking, shopping, and occasional gallery perusing dominated the lower portions of Manhattan, until Saturdays came around and offered a wave and a breeze and an option-- a place that perpetuated the weekend, 365 days a year, and rallied for the surfers. Since Saturdays was incepted a few years back in the rare quiet corner in SoHo, just a few blocks away from the bustle and madness of Canal Street, on the calmer stretch of Crosby Street, it has become quite a destination for both the native and new. Saturdays had also gone ahead and expanded from a quaint store carrying surf goods and advice served over La Colombe coffee, to a label in its own right and partner to several collaborations. Even though the weather might be slightly daunting at the moment, and leaping into the ocean doesn't seem quite appetizing, the surf is always up for those who live by the creed of Saturdays and the sea, so we have caught up with the three men behind the sweet spot, Morgan Collett, Josh Rosen and Colin Tunstall, to talk about, quite literally, everything under the sun.
