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. The official Darkstar x Nagel capsule is now available worldwide, exclusively at core skate shops and select online retailers.

For the official word from Darkstar on this dead artist collab, please follow the jump.

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.

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.

Stance + Modernica = Mid-century Stoke

by The Editors on April 26, 2018

Stance has teamed up with LA based furniture makers Modernica on a Stance branded Case Study Rocker. The chair (originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1948)  has been called “the most important chair you’ll ever sit on” and is one of the finest examples of mid-century modern design. Unfortunately, all 50 of this limited edition collab have already been sold so all we can do is hope for a second run.

Dead Brand Continues Dead Artist Partnership

by The Editors on April 9, 2018

Billabong is continuing their artistic relationship with Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat to celebrate death, apparently, with the third iteration of their  Andy Warhol x Jean-Michel Basquiat x Billabong Lab collection. Dead artists are the easiest to work with, obviously.

The Endless Summer License Plate

by The Editors on February 28, 2018

The Surfing Heritage and Culture Center in San Clemente, California is hoping to get the State of California to produce a “The Endless Summer” special interest license plate and you can help.

The State of California requires that SHACC submit a minimum of 7,500 applicants before it will approve the plate and proceed with its creation. SHACC has opened a “pre-registration” site in order to gauge interest and gather names for registration when the time comes. The pre-sell will commence after the sponsoring state agency files a letter of intent with the Department of Motor Vehicles and the proposed license plate is approved by the Department and the California Highway Patrol.

For all the official details follow the jump or lick here for the Surfplate website.

RIP: Filmmaker Warren Miller

by The Editors on January 25, 2018

It’s one of those days we knew would come eventually, but we’re very bummed it had to happen yesterday, Wednesday January 25, 2018. Ski movie pioneer and all around amazing guy Warren Miller has died peacefully at his home on Orcas Island, according to a story in the Seattle Times. He was 93.

To his legions of fans, Mr. Miller’s annual ski flick amounted to cinematic manna from heaven — an overdue shot of cold air and deep snow to stoke the fires within winter warriors who had suffered through the long, hot months of snowless summer. The films, most of which began with jaw-dropping alpine-ski sequences, featuring top skiers and snowboarders delivered by helicopter to some knee-knocking heights and set to a pounding rock-music beat, never failed to produce hooting, shouting and delirium among the snow-deprived faithful.

Mr. Miller is responsible for almost single handedly creating action sports film as a genre. His first film “Deep and Light,” debuted in the winter of 1949-50 in Port Angeles, Washington and over the years he became the Walt Disney of ski films. His yearly films shaped our lives in ways we never will fully understand. For that we thank him.
