Matix Launches The Compton Surf Club

by The Editors on September 19, 2014

20140814 Matix Beach Day 002

Matix, makers of quality action clothing, is always doing their part to give back. This time they did it by taking the Compton Boys & Girls Clubs to El Porto Beach for the inaugural Compton Surf Club.

“We wanted to share the stoke of surfing with kids that live so close, but never get a chance to enjoy the beach and a chance to surf,” explained Matix Marketing Manager Gabe Clement. “Every kid stood up on a wave. That feeling of conquering something new and foreign is something these kids will take with them into the new school year and is something that can’t be measured.”

But Matix didn’t do it alone. They had help rom Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, team riders Turkey Stopnik, Chase Stopnik, and J.J. Wessel along with special industry guests Luke Egan and Bruce Beach. For the official word from Matix, follow the jump.

Slater Launches Into Outerknown Space

by The Editors on September 8, 2014

Outerknown

After leaving the floundering mess that has become Andy Mooney’s Quiksilver (where sales dropped 19 percent last quarter and the stock is down 75 percent year to date), Kelly Slater mentioned that he had some ideas about something new. Today (September 8, 2014) we all know where those ideas are headed with the launch of Mr. Slater’s new clothing line backed by Gucci, Puma, and Volcom parent corporation The Kering Group. It’s called Outerknown. And this is what Kelly had to say about it on Instagram this morning:

It’s been a long time coming and I’m proud to let you know that the clothing brand I’ve been working on has launched our ‘Handshake Website” at Outerknown.com this morning. Our team, lead by designer John Moore and supported by our strategic partner, The Kering Group, are tirelessly working on a brand that blends the relationship between style, sustainability, and travel. I believe we have an obligation to build better products and understand the way our consumption impacts the world around us. In saying that, the focus of our brand is to make a product that has a positive effect on every possible level. I look forward to telling you more as the brand develops.

From the cool stuff they’re doing on their Insta feed, and our trust in Slater’s instincts we’d have to say we’re looking forward to seeing where this Outerknown things leads. . . even if it is being funded by one of the largest fashion megacorps in the world. The bummer is we won’t see any product on the streets until Fall 2015.

Vans Apré Shred Mountain Edition

by The Editors on September 4, 2014

Vans-Mountain-Edition Hero Banner
Vans have always been our number one choice for after riding activities, but we can’t say our feet always stayed warm and dry. In fact, we’ve frozen our feet for fashion many times. That’s why it’s nice to see this new line of Vans Mountain Edition Sk8-His and Eras that have been winterized for our protection.

Designed for the elements, the Era MTE and Sk8-Hi MTE are re-engineered Classic silhouettes with weather-resistant builds. Premium Scotchgard™ protected uppers, fleece linings and a heat retention layer between sock liner and outsole keep the feet warm and dry. The original vulcanized waffle mold is reversed and extended to form a lug outsole that provides upgraded traction on wet surfaces and in snow.

Warm, cozy, dry and good looking. That’s about all we could ask for. Follow the jump for the official word from Vans. [click to continue…]
