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, thus most of our trip was spent attempting to outrun rain while on the hunt for something a little more nourishing than cheese and bread. While the latter proved unsuccessful, we did manage to find a church with a ramp inside, and in those brief periods where the sun did make a casual appearance, David Gonzàlez, Paul Hart, Charles Collet and Fries Taillieu skated the shit out of whatever they could find.

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…

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…
The Shrine’s Rare Breed Experience Finally a NSFW Video, thanks to The Shrine’s “Rare Breed Experience” and album release party
The Chun is a space in Los Angeles where a bunch of bikers and artists and musicians live and create and once or twice a year they throw a party and destroy their place. We attended the most recent destruction party thanks to Josh in The Shrine. The Shrine are a rock ‘n’ roll band…
The What Youth 2015 Memoirs This is what a year of good living looks like
Instead of fill this page with even more statements about good living, we think this video does all the work itself. Also, we can’t do it if you don’t watch, so thank you all. Everyone who came along, is going to come along and those on the sidelines, we’re still here. And we’re straight back into it…
Office Space: Ben Hatchell When the world’s best rip our office mini presented by Monster
Ben Hatchell looks nice enough. He’s polite, well-mannered and friendly. And then he starts skating and all hell breaks loose. We’re now aware of what may or not be capable of on our office mini and hallway run, because Ben did both. And pulled it all. Ben showed up for a roll around, and in…
