Eating and Drinking in Barcelona A Radical Class note pad from the Med

I was sitting in traffic the other day after a long day at work and got a whiff of someone’s cigarette in a passing car. The smoke took me back to a far away place. A place where you can float in the Mediterranean Sea, where everyone is a wacky strange beautiful. Where the speed…

5 Books to Fuel Your Existential Crisis Don’t have an existential crisis? Get one this weekend

You don’t have to read. Your life is your blank page, scribble as you like. But in our experience, it’s still the best way to begin understanding the complicated, ever-curious thoughts that come into our own minds. To learn that living is living and we’re all going to die.

The WY Guide: The Gold Coast With Jack Freestone and C.S. Louis

Welp, you know what time it is: “Time to fuck the WSL!” No, we kid, calm down. But for reals, lots of our friends and enemies will have their eyes on Snapper and the Gold Coast the next few days, and since we enjoy a little shindig as much as the next guy, we thought we’d give…

Radical Class: Industry Talk 7 things catching our eye

Quiksilver used to have a slogan that said: “If you can’t rock and roll, don’t fucking come.” It was fun, punk and had some damn moxie. I’d wear that! But then Quiksilver became cautious and scared and you didn’t hear much from them unless you looked at the back of your dad’s t-shirt. This is…
