That’s All She Wrote Summer in Biarritz with Jack Freestone, Ryan Callinan and more

Old wood forests, old world markets where men sell bread and cheese, new wave girls on the streets and beaches, pouring smooth Gallic invitations out into the air, a rented flat steps from the sand and swell in the water that’s trunkable with the sun out, which it is. This summer we spent some weeks…

Julian East Sessions From the Australian East Coast, Julian Wilson Mid-2012

Julian is busy, winning US Opens, and snaking Slater or maybe getting snaked by Slater depending on your interpretation of a rule we can’t pretend to have read, but when he’s free Julian does the right thing, gets in a car, and drives off with us to find a wave and mess its face up….

This piece is two months old now, just like Jack Robinson, but it’s worth an encore presentation due to new developments.

Punk belonged to the media/celebrity hubs…

Vega Trestles is better than everywhere else

Here are one or two things about the people in this piece: Before this summer, Owen Wright had never really been to America besides for surf contests, and during contests you don’t really do anything else.

La Goon A What Youth orignial short starring Chippa Wilson

At its core, La Goon is a thoughtful consideration of Western social norms. Chippa, the once-bricklayer made good, still an outsider to the manufactured sheen of south Orange County and its citizens. He seeks out this overlooked reject closeout — a foil for his own character. Losing his nose and surfing anyway is a metaphor…
