Nixon + Surfline = Smartest Tide Watch Ever

by The Editors on December 19, 2014

We’ve often given our friends at Nixon grief for the fact that all their watches really do is tell time. And time of day really isn’t all that important of a metric when compared to all the other data points we use to run our lives. Sure the SuperTide kicks down a great overview of the tide, but in the era of truly smart watches, all most Nixon watches had going for them is they looked good and kept the proper time. With the launch of their Nixon UltraTide all that is about to change. This new Nixon tide watch delivers up to the minute Surfline tide, swell, wind, and weather data directly to the wrist.

Using advanced technology to take surf watches to an entirely new level, Nixon and Surfline’s goal in creating the Ultratide was not to change the way people surf, but rather give surfers more information and to deliver it in real time so you’ll never not know. . . . The Ultratide – unlike virtually every smart watch out there today – has no pesky cords required to sync or charge. Syncing with your smartphone via Bluetooth delivers the most accurate and up-to-date surf conditions directly to your wrist. This is not predicted information… this is real time with 10 live data points including creating custom surf alerts for the spots you want and the conditions you like. Browse the entire Surfline network of spots – over 2,700 and growing – and select your favorites. Set up custom alerts for each spot, and The Ultratide will make sure you never miss an epic session again.

Sounds like this watch is going to be a serious surf watch killer. The only bad news — it’s not out in time for Christmas. We’re all going to have to wait until “early spring,” well after the Apple Watch has dropped. Not to worry. From what we’ve heard the Apple watches aren’t even waterproof. For the official word from Nixon and Surfline, please follow the jump. [click to continue…]

Ryan Sheckler Strips Down For Peta2

by The Editors on December 16, 2014

It’s nothing half of Las Vegas hasn’t seen at those summer pool parties, but Ryan Sheckler has shown some skin for PETA youth division’s “Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin, and Let Animals Keep Theirs,” campaign.

“I’ll never put on a mink coat. It’s just not right,” Sheckler says in an exclusive video interview with peta2. “Be aware of what you’re actually doing and what materials you are using. You’re taking a life from an innocent animal.”

We agree with Ryan. For the full page ad and the official word from PETA2, please follow the jump. [click to continue…]

Established Forever Is A Nightmare

by The Editors on December 15, 2014

Any movie that arrives with a quote from Hunter S. Thompson and is introduced by Max Headroom is just fine by us:

No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride… and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well… maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.

And then lifting our iTunes library for their soundtrack didn’t hurt either. Retro rewind wizardry.

Terje Haakonsen Talks To Desillusion

by The Editors on December 15, 2014

We’ve interviewed Terje Haakonsen many times over the course of his career. Sometimes he was a smart ass, other times a complete dick (“when are you going to pay me?”), and often straight up and sincere. Happily for all of us, Desillusion Magazine got the straight up and sincere Terje in their video profile by Pierre David and Sebastien Zanella titled Where Is Your God Now. It may be one of the best, most honest profiles we’ve seen on one of the greatest snowboarders of all time. Check it.

Pipeline Responds To Being Cut Short

by The Editors on December 15, 2014

It’s so easy to sit back and talk smack about a call that someone else made. That’s why everyone does it. Here is Surfing Magazine’s video jab at Billabong Pipeline Masters event organizers for calling the contest early yesterday (December 14, 2014) just moments before the Pipeline roared to life with some scary, bumpy ass monster barrels. We have no opinion, we’re glad Surfing Magazine was there to get it all on video and share it with us.

Urban Boogie Sliding With Chris Cote

by The Editors on December 12, 2014

While the West Coast super storm may have kept some Southern Californians indoor the morning of December 12, 2014, it did not keep surf media personality Chris Cote in his cube. No! He ventured out to revive the old sport of kings: urban boogie sliding. Yes, Robert Siegel, this is what your listeners are up to on a stormy Friday morning.

by The Editors on December 12, 2014

To celebrate their 20 year partnership with Northwest snowboard legend Jamie Lynn, Lib Tech is releasing a Jamie Lynn 20 year video, micro site and Jamie’s own product line. Here’s the word from Lib:

Jamie was different when we met him at 14 and he is different for the same reasons now. Straight forward power snowboarding, art / design, and living all done with bold undeniable style and the energy of a from. We are excited and thankful to be working with Jamie. It’s been over 20 years and he’s done it all… he could have left, he could have quit, he could have done some weak ass shit but he doesn’t know how. We love him, he has made us all better people, artists and snowboarders. He is a craftsman, his best friends grew up working with us, we grew up working with him… it’s family. If you are a from and don’t know him but like art, music, naked chicks, waves, cats or no bullshit power snowboarding … you are in for a treat!

it’s true. Watch the video and then click the link to check the rest out.
