Watch: “Snapt4 x PSSC” With a cameo from Salmon Boy

Logan Dulien, from the quickly growing Snapt legacy, sent us over a fun little clip from the Palm Springs Surf Club. Ian Crane, Eithan Osborne, Parker Coffin, and Cheyne Magnusson all give it a proper working over but it’s Simon Rex who steals the show. Set as the legendary “Salmon Boy,” Rex is just what…

Photo Credit: Ben Harney The view from out west

As is often the norm these days, a random photo on the Insta Explore page catches the attention. Maybe a follow, or perhaps even a full troll/deep dive later, and we are introduced to a new talent. Well, new to us at least. Ben Harney’s images caught our eye at first glance. Well composed, that…

“Egypt” A look into the future by Steve Van Rees

Egypt Birdsong had long gone, leaving only a steady whistle of wind to push over the dried, Martian-like surface. Not a tree or blade of grass remained. Only the monstrous concrete walls guarding the once great pool grew from the flats, planted ominously over the nothingness. Adjacent to the far wall, a giant cog stood…

Watch: “Von Froth: The life of Nic Von Rupp” Episode #6

Well, things finally cooled down for our good pal Nic Von Rupp. That being that the COVID lockdown finally sidelined him like the rest of us.

Watch: McKenzie Bowden A nice step back to reality

We weren’t quite sure when we would feel right about posting some surf content with everything going on around us. However, when we hit play on this little beauty the boys at mySURF tv sent over, we just felt a little better somehow. Owen Milne captures McKenzie flying around nicely on his twin, while also…

Comment: “Am I a racist?”

“Am I a racist?” That was the thought that we were left with as we turned off the lights and closed up the office a few nights ago. If you missed it, last weekend we clipped a photo from a local newspaper and made a very inappropriate attempt at being clever on our Instagram feed….

Watch: “Western Australian Edit” W/ Taj and Dion

Yes, Taj has long left the WSL tour but he is far from packing it in when it comes to his trademark shredding. In this clip, he is joined by the always mysterious Dion Agius, who brings his unique approach every time he paddles out. The waves in and around Taj’s hometown of Yallingup rarely…

Watch: “Iso Dreams” An escape from the lockdown W/ GearĂ³id McDaid

The newly established creative juggernaut made up of Ireland’s GearĂ³id McDaid and Clem McInerney have released yet another interesting project. “Iso Dreams” appears to be loosely based on a theme of escapism from the current COVID-19 situation, albeit mostly in a sensory recall of previous trips prior to the global lockdown that most of us…
