Their introduction pretty much sums it up: there was a concept, a concept involving ten Russian models, a Lamborghini, and Dion boosting virtually every air in the book, plus a couple of new ones. Electric blue water contrasting against wild mountainous backdrops. You’ve gotta love the super tight take off against the wall and the […]
Korduroy.tv is a rad surf culture site brought to you by Cyrus Sutton, the smooth Californian surfer and filmmaker. Korduroy.tv have transformed from a successful cult blog to a communal website featuring some of surfing and skating’s most creative craftsmen and women. Focusing on creativity and self-reliance, there is heaps of stuff on here. The must-see […]
Paper Sea Quarterly just launched their new magazine in Melbourne recently: the party had free beer, which is what we all know makes a party. Ozzie Wrong got arty on a rad surfboard that I’m going to win. There were huge prints on all the walls from the mag and Kaspar Raglus did a bit […]
Hunting Beach is a big deal in the surf world. The US Open of Surfing attracts thousands of people for surf, skate, BMX and music events every year. But in 1986, there were 100,000 people on the beach and shit got wild. These images by Nick Waplington have been brought to life just recently.
5 foot 4 and a half. That’s small by any standard surfboard, but Rob Machado could ride a bunch of tooth picks and still style hard. So it’s a fish-alaia-shortboard? Whatever it is, I love seeing crew experimenting with anything but the standard pro shortie.
The Sugarmill is a surf lifestyle inspired retail collective situated on Sydney’s northern beaches. They don’t stock any gear from the big three surf brands. Instead, they’ve created a place where anyone, not just surfers, can come and find something different and be inspired.
James Gunn’s PG Porn presents Helpful Bus, starring The Office’s Craig Robinson, Gilmore Girl’s Sean Gunn, and porn stars Bree Olson and Marie Luv. Don’t worry, this is all safe for work. For those who love porn, without the sex.
Matt Wilkinson is the only surfer on the world tour who isn’t boring at the moment. Kelly’s won 11 titles, but has he done anything ‘really interesting’ since he was with Pam? Wilko rollerbladed his way to the Quiksilver Pro on the Gold Coast with a fresh perm, wears specially-designed wetsuits at each competition, has […]
This is the best anti-drink driving campaign I have ever seen, hands down. Who doesn’t love hearing a Kiwi say ‘chips’. Just like that Beached Whale, this clip is a pissa but has a purpose.
The artwork on all Schade apparel has been submitted by artists from around the world, and only one hundred limited edition prints are created in each design. The first pair of shorts made goes straight to the designer; the second usually gets pinched by someone at Schade. And rest are available for sale.
How rad are the surf craft Misfit are creating these days? The Thrusta Space Dolphin, Magic Mule and the Dingo Bandido all with sweet sprays and resin tints. But the hole in the wall coffee shop run from their shop powers Misfit Aid, the not-for-profit arm that ‘harnesses the resource of the surf community to […]
A cheeky little basics and accessories label from Melbourne is bringing back the scrunchie. The simple fabric covered elastic hair tie is a throwback to every girl’s favourite 80s accessory. While Carrie Bradshaw once famously insisted that New York women don’t wear scrunchies, Aussie girls are tying it up and letting loose.
Sarah Dingwall is a huuuuge fan of nature and glass. She bottles and encases beautiful objects from nature in glass vials, or blows amazing birds and shapes to create jewellery. I particularly like her secret messages, cut from old books and encased into glass to keep forever.
I first learned about this new venture through some photos popping up on Facebook from people holding cards with the message I AM, Wisdom, Courage, Passion. Grown from this has grown a not a for-profit business with a difference. Helping communities develop a steady, sustainable and higher income through their own work. The model is built into the fibre and DNA of I AM and represents the wholesale change the founders wish to see across standard commercial enterprise.
