Kleiner is an outstanding lensman. A maven. His work is brilliant, simple as that.
Odds and ends is the final film to come out of the Creative Destruction project. It’s “leftovers” but the quality of footage, not to mention the rawness, really blows you away.
Dive in and never forget how fucking awesome Runamuk Visuals and Wade Goodall are.
This is a short post on a short clip but one we feel needs to be watched, if only for the insanely large punt from Noa Deane.
Sorry, didn’t mean to let you down. Enjoi the week

James Dean on a skateboard.
The Glass Onion Society is an expresso bar and boutique on the Central Coast of NSW. It’s a creative hub in a once stagnant place. People drive miles out of their way to drink in the vibe of the place and their brilliant coffee. The boys at the store recently held an Art Attack night. Mambo…
Garrett’s two latest clips need to be seen.
Sick surf, sick surfing, sick music, and a sick edit. There just sick mental yewww
Check out the first of many monthly instalments by Andrew Mooney.
I’ve alway digged his style.
He does some hell punts but just wait for a month of big swell. Pulling back isn’t an option.
RB at it again. Some of the best skater’s going at the mo, enjoy!
Runamuk Visuals never, ever, disappoint. Weather Beaten Bastards is their first short film and it’s an opus. I think we might have had as much fun watching it, as the Runamuk Boys had making it. It’s like a breath of fresh air and well worth your time. If you don’t smile when watching this, you’d…

Here we have an ever-so-lovely post. We’re hoping it makes up for our missing Happy Monday this week. It was the long weekend after all and the hangovers were definitely on the “long” end of the spectrum. Anyway, on to the post. Alana Blanchard. What more do we need to say, really? Maybe the fact…
The premier for this short was last night. People came, people watched and people drunk beer and spirits. It was radical. If you weren’t at the premier, well, we forgive you and present this to you here to watch in full, online. Enjoy!
Sorry we’re late friends. But hey, better late than never. Enjoy your Tuesday
Here is a piece on Jordy Smith and his preperation and thoughts surrounding events. After watching this, if Trestles is over 3 ft and he’s on the fluro railed dreamboat, it’s safe to say that the big man will be on the podium.
We’ve been pretty quiet on the mix front lately. Well to tell you the truth, and you probably already know this, we’ve been quiet on the post front too. There’s a reason, however. We’re working our skinny little arses off building a fresh new site with new, much needed, features and a fresh look that…
Riley Blakeway followed Chippa Wilson and Nathan Fletcher for 14 months and came up with this, somewhat, ‘mini movie’. 22 minutes long, jam packed with technical jumps and fucking huge pitts. What more could you ask for, really?
Thanks Riley and Analog.

Dion and Joe G are a good mix. Throw a wave pool with ramps, and some of Dubai’s sexiest sprouters and you have Electric Blue Heaven. Actual surf heaven.
Here are two clips that we like.
One Surfing, one Skating.

Kidult is “the problem child who paints in a righteous, primary and no-limit way with the use of an extinguisher.” He’s taking action against the current commercialisation of graffiti by hitting the streets with paint. Stores like Colette, Supreme and Hermes’ are amongst his victims, all of which have used “graffiti” in recent times to promote…
Instagram deleted our Instagram because of a couple of nipples. We will have another shortly. New website coming as well as surfing and girls. Exclusive VS girls.
We do not own these images.
OXBLVD’s song “Tease Me” relates a story that we’ve all been through. A gorgeous girl teases a guy, somewhat unintentionally, and knocks his socks off. Time is spent bedding the girl. Drinks, dancing, and feeling. Some of us win, and some lose. The song throbs along and oozes a sexiness that isn’t present in most…

Our first AM/PM episode with OXBLVD was a short and sweet glimpse into the warmup for their gig at the Beresford. A preview if you will. This one, episode 2, is longer, beefier and will no doubt get you dancing, or at the very least head nodding. They are a well oiled live act now…

The Redbull/Target/Nike endorsed kid shreds. No two ways about it.

If you skate and have been to NYC you might know this park. We were in town recently for the launch of Mambo in the US. We found this nicely contoured slab of concrete after the manager of our hotel asked us to take (Mambo skater) Brad McDermott outside “to play” after he’d jumped a…
