BOOK CLUB: THE EIGHTIES AT ECHO BEACH

Radar

day glo swimsuits and surfer babes!

Located smack in the middle of downtown Manhattan, the NYLON offices aren't exactly beachfront property. But we like to pretend that's not true- especially in the wintertime. We have a giant The Endless Summer movie poster hanging above our desks, and, depending on photoshoots happening, occasional surfboards propped against the wall.

The latest addition to our decor is the new photo book, The Eighties at Echo Beach. The original master of surf photography, Michael Moir, has turned his camera on the '80s beach kids who rocked the waves and looked the part back in the day with Day-Glo swimsuits, zinc on their noses, and white-blond hair.

From 1979 all the way through the eighties, the stories and pictures all come from a specific place, the "surf ghetto" Echo Beach. But no matter where you live, this is the perfect coffee table book for any kind of water baby....whether or not you're lucky enough to live by the sea.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.

Maybe just... keep scrolling instead

On Thursday, model Ireland Baldwin posted a photo of herself in just a thong with her butt exposed, posing on the balcony of her New York City hotel room. Instead of staying quiet and scrolling past it, like most family members would in this case, both her father Alec and uncle Billy Baldwin just had to post their thoughts on it.
