Surfers and skaters have had a pretty volatile relationship over the years. They’re too dirty and bloody. We’re too jocky and wear too much aloha. And vice versa and yadayadayada. And it wasn’t until recently, when we all started hanging out, that a lot of the same things they hated about surfing were the same that we hated. So a bunch of us kept hanging out and now there seems to be some pockets of mutual respect and psyche. We made The Copenhagen Project film last year and learned just what “competition” could mean. We also made some new friends.
And while we don’t cover “the news,” we thought this was sick: Craig Anderson just got put on the Huf Footwear team, where he joins Dylan Rieder, Austyn Gillette, Peter Ramondetta, Kevin Turpening and more. And from what we know about the brand and ethos of Keith Hufnagel, this is a sick alignment.
Above is Dylan Rieder and Craig Anderson along the South Coast of Australia. Craig and Dane were filming with Kai for Cluster, while Austyn Gillette and Dylan tagged along to shred and skate. It wasn’t planned. It wasn’t for anything, other than some dudes who get along ripping along the coast.
Why does this matter? It doesn’t. It’s just rad.
