Tim Cook, the man running what is often the world’s most valuable company (Apple, duh!) sent out a photo via Twitter from The Surfer’s Journal because the cover was shot on an iPhone by Zak Noyle.

The point here being, all you need is a brand new iPhone and you too can shoot photos like this. Seriously, you’re only $1,100 away from a cover shot right now. Get on it. Happy Holidays.

C.R. Stecyk III + Nixon = Urban Maneuvers

by The Editors on September 25, 2018

Nixon has talked Craig Stecyk into creating a collection and not surprisingly, it is one of our favorites in a long while. Here’s how they pitch it:

C.R. Stecyk III exists in the shadows, and even when he does slide into the sunlight, it rarely adds clarity. A pioneer of the Dogtown skate ethos, Stecyk has helped shape modern skateboarding in more ways than imaginable: through videos, writing, art installations, and co-founded Juxtapoz Art magazine, among others. A widely-acknowledged street art progenitor, Stecyk’s contributions to the counterculture are so engrained in society that the Smithsonian permanently houses some of his work. 

The capsule includes a watch, a camera bag, and some other cool stuff. Sadly, there are only 100 watches and bags world wide (it’s limited). So if you want one you better hurry to an exclusive Nixon retailer. For the details, click the link.

by The Editors on August 28, 2018

Nixon has announced a collab with a band from the 90s called Metallica on an eight watch collection that was “born of long-shared mutual respect for upstarts who buck the system and wind up changing it for good.” The watches, which will be available on November 5, 2018, feature band logos, scary crosses, lightning bolts, and even some Pushead art. If you need a wrist watch that tells time, and love throwing up those horns to the soundtrack of your youth, then this just may be your collection. Click the link for more.

Darkstar Brings Back The Nagel 80s

by The Editors on June 7, 2018

Darkstar Skateboards is bringing back the 80s with a little help from  the formerly living, minimalist-sexy artist Patrick Nagel.

The Darkstar x Nagel Summer 2018 capsule showcases the late artist’s spirit and legacy, framed with blocks of breathable muted color and elegant reflective chrome details. Nagel’s signature is implemented throughout amid simple typography, a Nagel provenance found in Nagel exhibition posters and Nagel art books.

Adidas + Juice At The Venice Pavilion

by The Editors on May 31, 2018

Over the Memorial Day weekend, adidas Skateboarding and BEYOND THE STREETS, in partnership with Juice Magazine, officially celebrated the recreation of the iconic Venice Pavilion with a BBQ-style block party showcasing the best of Venice Beach’s skateboarding, graffiti, and music scenes with an all-star skate jam and concert. Thrashin’, thrashin’. . . “Daggers.!”

Surprisingly, and totally unprompted on Memorial Day we happened to re-watched Thrashin’, the movie that mythologized the “Venice Pit.” Synchronicity? We wouldn’t rule it out.

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 exhibitionBeyond the Streets.

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

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.
