This past week definitely saw a flick of the switch to Winter in the southern hemisphere. Adidas took a crew consisting of Chippa Wilson, Keegan Valaika, Jake Blauvelt and Louif Paradis to Norway and Sweden. What Youth covered the trip and you can think of it like a little inspiration…
Lost Boys Collective:
I have to be honest. There aren’t that many people who I could sit and watch talk about boards for fifteen minutes. Dane Reynolds is an exemption and it’s interesting hearing all the subtleties of shapes discussed by someone who could surf a door better than most of us could boards.
Listing off the content of a video is kind of a lazy(quick) way of writing a caption. In the case of the below video it’s a bit more relevant in part due to what it has. Skating, yup, rad motorbikes, yup, surfing, yup, beach hangs, yup. All set to a rocknroll soundtrack. So we’re doing you a favour.

Back in April Tyler Warren made his way to our shores thanks to Billabong New Zealand and Damaged Goods Zine. Part surf trip, part art shows, all round good times. It was a great chance to meet in real time and see his work up close. The fruits of the…
Norfolk Island. All I can say I really knew about the place was that there were pine trees there, it had something to do with Australia and my mum and her friends used to get cheap Lego from there.

We’ll have some more Norfolk coverage coming to from one of the Lost Boys trips to the Pines.
Craig Anderson shows you how he surfs with his new fins from Futures. I don’t know if these will make you surf anything like Craig but it can’t hurt for you to try right. I mean, damn, did you watch the video?
With a well earned reputation for throwing his fins into the air, Chippa Wilson switches it up in Duo. Atop a board shaped by Neal Purchase Jr, chips draws clean lines and cuts deep lines into the face on his twin fin. Not your usual Chippa video, but then again what is.
