That was a blast. Let’s do it again this year.
2014 Memoirs A year in review
Home Ave: Austin Calvello A roll in the park
New Scenery, New Noise A new film: Skating, surfing and snowboarding in the all day light of Sweden and Norway I Presented by Adidas
Drinking gets you closer to the Gods in Norway. Or so they say. And we just got up close and personal with them. You’ll remember a few months back when we had a problem “just saying yes” to everything. This is the result of that: a trip through Scandinavia with an eclectic crew that included Chippa…
Watch “Vinho Verde” Really good surfing in the oldest world of Portugal with Mitch Coleborn, Soli Bailey, Mitch Crews and Dusty Payne
Vinho Verde is actually white wine. But the bottle in green and the taste is terrific. And in Portugal, you can drink with any and every meal you choose. It accents buttery white fish perfectly. Post surf in Portugal, few things sound better. And as you’ll see here in this new short starring Mitch, Soli,…
Watch “El Norte” A skate trip through Northern Spain supported by Globe
A trip usually suggests planning, an itinerary, some form of goal or destination. That’s a trip. This was more an impulsive 48 hour mission into the Basque Country. A place renowned for it’s good weather and gluten fuelled cuisine. Turns out we chose the only two days of summer when the sun went into hiding,…
Day Off With Colin Moran When your job is surfing whats a day off look like
To get a better idea of what his day (off) at home looks like in Newport Beach — to see a little more of the underground surf culture here. Presented by D’BLANC. Check out Colin in our latest video from over the summer, Everything’s Wrong But in the Right Place:
Eric Dressen’s Salad Bowl in Christiania We threw a party where there aren’t any rules. This is that.
Christiania is in Copenhagen. It is a largely self governed neighborhood of CPH, and hidden inside is a very fun bowl to skate. We joined up with Eric Dressen, the CPH Pro dudes and Monster to throw an event and bowl jam at the Wonderland Skate Bowl. And when you throw a party in a…
A Weekend in San Francisco Skating the city with Jake Anderson and Kevin Terpening presented by Stussy
We went to San Francisco with Jake Anderson and Kevin Terpening as part of Stussy’s Wet Dreams California tour, which turned out to just be a good reason to go up north with some of our favorite dudes. We’ve still never been able to say no to San Francisco. Never will.
Watch Panama Is Certain Starring Taj Burrow and Dion Agius
“I’m free! Best feeling ever! So many trips to come!” This is what Taj Burrow wrote me when I congratulated him on his plans for retirement from World Tour competition. Taj has been competing on surfing’s World Tour for 18 years. And as we speak, he’s probably doing a Skull Drag in Fiji where he’s…
“Burp” starring Kevin Terpening Shot entirely on iPhone 6s
One week in LA with Kevin Terpening shot entirely on an iPhone 6s. All the tools you need. Watch Fairly Normal: Kevin Terpening here:
Watch Rasta and Ozzie rip in Australia Poetic and reckless ripping presented by Sanuk
There was jazz in the water. We walked up to a famed (and notoriously sharky) Australian point break to meet up wit Rasta and Ozzie — who were already in the water. The wind was onshore, but the sand was good and rights were pouring in. The lineup was littered with whitecaps, but then two…
Take the day off with Noz Noa Deane takes us through Coolangatta and bets on the dogs
Noa surfed Snapper for 6 hours this day. Dodging “blow ins” and slotting into dreamy Greenmount pits all morning. But then we picked him up and said, “Now what?” Noa took us to his local pub The Sands for some pokies and dog races. A couple beers and a quick loop through Coolangatta.
Watch Chippa Wilson ride a “Duo” Shaped by Kirra legend Neal Purchase Jr. and presented by Stance
When he pulled it out of his truck it looked like a mistake. Interesting, but definitely a mistake. More of a novelty board you’d ride on long beach days to make your friends scratch their heads. Not to do what Chippa Wilson does on this Gold Coast pointbreak. Surreal, refreshing lines with an altogether new-found…
Watch Good Luck Kanoa Igarashi He may have an American flag next to his name, but he’s got all of Japan behind him
Sure, it’s a bit weird. Kanoa Igarashi was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Huntington Beach but has the backing of all of Japan, and they often claim him as their own. Both of his parents are from Japan, and have storied and very extended roots there and from an early age instilled…
