I had a Powell Ripper board back when duct tape was a skate fashion accessory. I think I had the shirt, stickers, poster, all of it. Now, they’ve re-issued the Ripper deck for old farts like me to get all sappy & nostalgic. It’s working!
Hip sack with a mini boom box! Think of the roller-skating possibilities. I actually saw someone with one of these at the beach not too long ago. It was pretty loud and seemed like a great addition to what they were all about. Yeah … they were aggressively hula hooping to some new age jazz, but that doesn’t mean you can’t crank Slayer out of your own.
Warm up those thumbs PS3 owners. There’s finally a game inspiring you to blow the dust off your oversized, expensive, George Foreman-looking, gaming unit that’s been dormant since the last PS3 exclusive Uncharted 2 released two years ago. Killzone 3 is exactly what I like in my gaming experience. Guns, explosions and the occasional knife to the eye-socket.
Dane has a new board short out from Quiksilver. Quik has been releasing these little vid shorts to go with the new … shorts. Dane can surf really, really well. Making music … well, maybe not so much. Was that supposed to be Japanese in the beginning? Toward the end it sounded like Spanish being spoken by a Japanese person.
GoPro finally releases their long awaited LCD BacPac. This is awesome. You can now watch & edit what you’ve been shootin without the use of a laptop or something else you stick your memory card into. Oh … that might be a new sexual metaphor! “Hey baby, I need to dump this memory card…”
Early surf photos from Hawaii and the West Coast … before there was a Starbucks in Foodland.
My friend Ian Walsh rides for Fox-Surf. Ian is bonkers crazy. He likes to ride waves that will smash you into fish food, and then, wash your pulverized remains into a shark’s mouth. He wears these shorts. These are man’s shorts. If you want to look like a man, wear these shorts…if you want to look like a woman, continue to wear your little sister’s jeans.
DC skate shoe. Black, low cut, bla bla, rubber, leather, stitching, bla bla bla. It looks clean, go buy it.
His name is David Carrier Porcheron. Because snowboarders can’t be bothered with saying a long French Canadian name, everyone calls him DCP. David has a new goggle with SPY Optics. Goggles go on your face to protect you from people on the chairlift spitting in your eyes.
Arnette is back with a solid offering of sunnies and soon-to-drop goggles. I like all their current styles – especially the Venkmans. It’s probably because I am a sucker for anything Ghostbusters.
