Killian Guerin & The Teloscopia

by The Editors on May 18, 2018

French Phenom Killian Guerin has put out another edit from somewhere around the world and this time it’s the Telos. Aptly called The Teloscopia, it’s just another check in from Killian showing how much more he progresses and charges with every edit. Perfect viewing for a Friday afternoon “at work.”

Monster Children Moves To Far Chinatown

by The Editors on May 17, 2018

Monster Children, the Australian born, sideways action culture magazine, has announced the transfer of their SoCal office from Eagle Rock, California to “a new workspace and gallery” in Far Chinatown that they will share with Pabst Blue Ribbon. The new spot looks exactly as we would expect — sparse, empty, exposed brick, concrete and plywood floors, a pinball machine, and the occaional PBR logo/product.

Located in a renovated warehouse in the industrial area just north of downtown and across from LA’s State Historic Park, ​1700 Naud ​will also house offices for both Monster Children and Pabst, along with temporary work spaces in an area of LA that is attracting substantial investment from the creative community. Neighbors include David Chang’s new Majordomo restaurant, NYC’s Baby’s All Right, Paradigm Entertainment Agency, Werkartz artist studio, and the groundbreaking street art and graffiti exhibition ​Beyond the Streets​.

For the official word from the kids, please follow the jump.

Nate Bozung Arrested For Aggravated Assault

by The Editors on May 16, 2018

Yeah, it’s been a while since we’ve seen the former ridiculously talented pro snowboarder Nate Bozung. But we can’t say we’re all that surprised by his latest hijinks. Here are the details from the Salt Lake City Tribune.

Park City police arrested former professional snowboarder Nate Bozung early Saturday on suspicion of holding up a knife to one person and threatening to shoot another person with a rifle. . . Bozung, 36, posted bail and was released from the Summit County jail Monday. He had been booked on suspicion of aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and marijuana possession. He has not been formally charged.

Alcohol is such a wonderful thing. At least he’s still alive. We hope he sorts things out real soon.

RIP: The Pumphouse Gang Writer Tom Wolfe

by The Editors on May 15, 2018

The writer who brought surfing to the masses with his wildly popular essay on the Windansea crew, The Pumphouse Gang, died on Monday May 14, 2018, according to a story in the New York Times.

Tom Wolfe, an innovative journalist and novelist whose technicolor, wildly punctuated prose brought to life the worlds of California surfers, car customizers, astronauts and Manhattan’s moneyed status-seekers in works like “The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby,” “The Right Stuff” and “Bonfire of the Vanities,” died on Monday in a Manhattan hospital. He was 88.

We will miss his wit, eye, and especially his monstrously huge novels that we’ve always loved lugging around.

Everyone’s Surfing Dirk Ziff’s Pool Now

by The Editors on May 11, 2018

Seems like everyone is getting a shot at Dirk Ziff’s surfing pool. Just last week Tony Hawk, Shaun White, and Eddie Vedder got some. Sadly, though we scoured social media for hours, this is all the footage we could find of that historic event. It’s true, our Internet skills are definitely on the fade.

Jeff Clark’s Signature E-Bike Cruiser

by The Editors on May 8, 2018

We’re from the “if you’re going to ride a bike you should pedal it” camp, but some people want to save all their energy for the waves. Big wave pioneer Jeff Clark is apparently one of them. That’s likely why he’s partnered with Vintage Electric Bikes on the Jeff Clark Signature Cruz. Roll on, Mr. Clark.

Travis Reynolds Wins Boardroom Shape Off

by The Editors on May 7, 2018

Those who follow the glamorous world of high stakes competitive surfboard shaping will not find it surprising that Santa Cruz, California’s Travis Reynolds took the 2018 Icons of Foam Tournament of Champions Shape-off at the Boardroom Show in Del Mar, California on Sunday, May 6, 2018, but Travis was shocked.

“Wow. I’m blown away,” said Reynolds. “It means a lot to compete against these fine shapers…to have my family here… it’s incredible. What an honor to win the Marc Andreini Shape-off and to compete against this crew of past champions. I’ve been thinking about our friend Chris Lundy who passed away recently. I dedicate this victory to Chris.”

Congrats to Travis. For all the details from the shape-off and the rest of the show, please follow the jump.
