Did you know that whale watching season is upon us for the US West Coast? Between that and getting ready to release our Zuma and Ojai power supplies, it’s fair to say that for us West Coast-based Strymon folks, the ocean is never far from our minds.
So what inspired us to name our power supply “Zuma?” Zuma Beach in Malibu is known for some of the best surfing and cleanest water along the California coast. Its expansive, gently sloping, rock-free white sand allows plenty of room for sun bathing and walking out far into the Pacific while still touching bottom. The first people to live in Malibu were the Chumash Indians, and the name “Zuma” comes from the Chumash word for “abundance.” Zuma Beach is also very close to Point Dume, a popular hangout for sea lions this time of year, as well as for people who want to watch migrating whales. There are abundant wild flowers in bloom at the Point Dume Nature Reserve right now, too!
To celebrate the beach, the ocean, their wildlife, and the upcoming release of our Zuma and Ojai power supplies, we are announcing our Ocean Sounds Contest. Share a video of your best ocean or beach inspired sounds and music made with your favorite gear, and you could win a prize package including a brand new Zuma, BigSky, and a Strymon t-shirt!
Three winners will each receive:
Post a video to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Youtube of your best ocean or beach-inspired sounds or music made with your favorite gear, created and posted between March 11 – April 11 2016, and include the hashtag #StrymonOceanSounds
Here are a couple examples of ocean themed videos:
