Bright Grey DION AND A SILVER-SLATE SHOREBREAK

08.06.12 – TAGS:
Video: Kai Neville

Today, we briefly list the recent movements of Dion Agius:

He was meant to go on the Kustom Airstrike trip to the Mentawais, but he pulled out due to a sore nagging knee that he tweaked in New Zealand going air for air with Craig, Dane and Conner.

Then he was meant to go somewhere new, somewhere he’d never been, to shoot a short film with What Youth. He’d be traveling with a model he met in Los Angeles and staying with her family.

But Dion couldn’t get his visa sorted in time and that trip also got pushed back. Worse — or, not worse, more amazing — thanks to the weird arcane laws of living abroad, Dion then had to travel outside continental North America to reset his work visa, so he went surfing in Panama with a knee brace.

This was after a cross-country road trip with Warren Smith for their project Proxy Noise.

Then he came to the Dear Suburbia world premiere on Thursday.

On Friday, he furnished a pop-up showroom for Epokhe, the new sunglass line he started with Mitch Coleborn and Kai Neville, and hosted a party there.

This morning I don’t know where he is exactly. He was trying to decide between Mexico and San Francisco.

There it is. And here he is, in Bright Grey, a What Youth original short. Enjoy.

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,…

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.

“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.

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…
