Smith’s Life Beyond Walls Panama

by The Editors on April 1, 2015

After a grueling year on the WSL World Tour in 2014, Smith International team rider CJ Hobgood wanted to get away and press the reset button before another big year in 2015. Together, with fellow Smith Team Riders Brett Barley and Alex Smith, the three made an impromptu mid-winter strike mission to the Caribbean side of Panama for some of the punchy, tropical beach breaks.

Life Beyond Walls: Panama is a behind-the-scenes style edit that follows the three surfers from three diverse areas as they enjoy the simple life of surfing, eating, surfing, and sleeping for five days. The clip was filmed and edited by Jon Hetchkopf with accompanying photos by Mark Welsh.

Baby Scumbag Shuts Down A Mall

by The Editors on March 30, 2015

Zumiez decided it would be a good idea to have a “celebrity appearance” by Steven Fernandez and Keelan Dadd at the Stonewood Center Mall in Downey, California on Saturday March 28, 2015, but when more than “2,000 screaming girls and adoring fans” showed up the police shut it all down, according to a story on ABC 7.

“The clothing store and event staff were overwhelmed with the large crowd inside the mall, which caused the business to close their doors and cancel the event,” Downey police released in a statement. . . Authorities could be seen in riot gear and stores had their security gates closed as crowds were dispersed. The mall was temporarily closed, but reopened by 4:30 p.m.

Ah, the cult of personality powered by social media.
