Go Roadless With Jones, Rice, and Iguchi

by The Editors on October 7, 2019

Teton Gravity Research’s new snowboarding film, Roadless, hits the road this month with theater (and pub) showings all over the US and Canada. The film follows Bryan IguchiJeremy Jones, and Travis Rice on a 10-day human powered expidition to explore an untamed “vast and remote” part of Wyoming.

For the first time in their illustrious careers, these snowboarding legends are united by a common goal: To trek deep into the Yellowstone wilderness in search of groundbreaking first descents in the most remote region of the lower-48. This arduous journey through this winter landscape not only yields world-class riding but allows these three to reflect on their shared past and love of snowboarding in one of America’s last wild places.

The Roadless tour kicks off this week at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on October 10, 2019. For all the details click the link.

New GoPro Hero8 Must Be Better, Right?

by The Editors on October 1, 2019

We’ve rarely had a GoPro camera that functioned at all, let alone allowed us to bring back epic footage of our action fumbling, however, everyone seems to love these cameras so here’s the latest: the GoPro Hero 8. With each additional GoPro product launch we hope Gopro will release something that we can depend on day in and day out. Who knows, maybe this is finally the one.

The Coastal Sifters Bike Surfing To Baja

by The Editors on September 19, 2019

On July 9, 2019, two former C3 Worldwide workers, Cooper and Pius, departed Seattle on a bike packing trip. They’d already quit their jobs, gotten a sponsorship deal from Coal Headwear and hit the road. Their destination? Baja. On the way they planned to surf, clean-up some beaches and document it all along the way. So far, they’ve made it to Newport Beach, California and things appear to be going well. So well, that it seems their surge in popularity has brought their website coastalsifters.com to its knees. But that’s okay; you can follow their latest adventures on Instagram in the meantime right here @coastalsifters.

Nude Lakey Peterson Surfing Naked

by The Editors on September 4, 2019

Professional surfer Lakey Peterson appears naked with her surfboard, standing naked on rocks, and riding her surfboard naked in the 2019 ESPN Body Issue. Because, you know, appearing naked in ESPN magazine may “inspire more young girls to want to be a surfer” . . .  or, maybe to encourage other girls To surf naked. Because apparently, the world needs more girls surfing naked. It likely has absolutely nothing to do with becoming more marketable outside the flailing surf industry. Plus, Kelly Slater and Stephanie Gilmor already did it and look where it got them. Get nude, y’all.

Jamie Brisick & Surfline’s Techno Narcissism

by The Editors on August 29, 2019

Everyone’s favorite surf writer Jamie Brisick is back in the pages of The New Yorker with a story titled Surfing In The Age of the Omnipresent Camera.  It’s about Surfline’s new Sessions app that allows anyone with an Apple Watch to capture a video record of all the waves they surf in front of a Surfline camera. Of course, Brisick uses this piece as an opportunity to give newbs an overview of the last 50 years of professional surfing, his career as a pro surfer, and the history of Surfline itself.

For so many of us surfers, the ocean is where we go to work things out, to heal, to escape. And for it to become all about the photo op cheapens the experience. And, even if the documenting or the posting is not your thing, you’ll inevitably be surrounded by surfers for whom it is. Emerging from the water with these thoughts, I did not have to wait long before the contradictions of modern surfing returned. Up on the roof deck, we went straight for our phones. Gilovich smiled broadly. “Soon we’ll be able to alert you when the conditions are to your exact liking, based on what you’ve rated with five stars,” he said. He went on about algorithms, and a bunch of other tech stuff, but none of us were listening. We were checking out our waves.

It reminded us of that scene in Dave Egger’s book The Circle when the founder of the company rolls out the ubiquitous “seaChange” mini cameras that will allow crowd sourced surveillance on a global level. Secrets are lies. Sharing is caring. Surfing the apocalypse, indeed.

Walker Ryan Because . . .

by The Editors on August 21, 2019

“There is no way you just stumble on to a skater like Walker Ryan,” someone once told us. Well, yes and no. Met him at the St. Helena skatepark way back, appreciated his style and demeanor (plus that scene in Little Children), and now just look at him rollin’ the streets of LA for Thrasher. My, my.
