by The Editors on July 13, 2017

When you think of all the crime going down in the city of San Francisco on July 11, 2017 it’s good to know that the San Francisco Police Department would allow so many of their officers to hang out a catch all the action at Dolores Park.

Yeah, there’s some retro motorcycles up in this piece, but it’s also got Steve Cabellero and Christian Hosoi so we’re willing to sit through the vroom vroom nonsense for a little bit of vert.

Built To Fail: A Streetwear Story

by The Editors on June 16, 2017

No shock to anyone really, but we’ve never understood the “streetwear” thing. We know what it’s like to desire every single piece of kit we’d see on our favorite skaters, surfers, and snowboarders, but we never got our heads around the fetishization of those clothes by people who seemed to be more into the fashion (and we mean that in an East Coast/NYC way) than the skateboarding. We’re hoping Bobby Hundreds‘ new documentary Built To Fail: A Street Wear Story will finally enlighten us.

BUILT TO FAIL: A STREETWEAR STORY takes you through the history of streetwear, including the subculture of LA’s surf & skate scene, the punk rock scene, and the rise of graffiti street art out of NY. The film features interviews with Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons, A$AP Rocky, Benny Gold, and​ ​LA-based designers such as Eli Bonerz (X-Large), “Bobby Tribal” Ruiz (Tribal), and​ ​Rick Klotz (Freshjive).

Built To Fail premiere’s this Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Los Angeles Film Festival at 8:35pm at the ArcLight Santa Monica. For more info click the link.

Nixon’s Greek Surf Mission

by The Editors on June 5, 2017

To anyone who’s spent a day staring out the window of a Minoan Line ferry looking for surf in the Agean Sea this vid will seem like fiction. Yes, we spotted wave with potential off the coast of Delos, one fall during a storm, but nothing like what Nixon surfers Marlon Lipke, Yannick De Jager and Gony Zubizarreta found on this trip.

Chances to score are always very low considering the consistency of swells and the difficulty to predict conditions. Timing is key, local connexions are priceless. All they needed was a call: a friend and local shaper guaranteed them that the conditions displayed on the weather forecast would turn the coast into an idyllic playground, and it did.

Guess so. This whole edit was snagged in one day, and when the day was done, so was the surf.

Josh Friedberg’s Tre-A-Day Ender

by The Editors on June 1, 2017

 

A post shared by Josh Friedberg (@joshfriedberg) on

On New Year’s Day 2017 Josh Friedberg, the executive director of the International Skateboarding Federation started a quest. He announced on Instagram that he would be doing a Tre Flip a day, every day for of the entire year. Having once surfed every day for 96 days straight we know the mental havoc commitments like this can induce, not to mention how they can get in the way of normal life.

For the first week we could tell Josh was having some trouble, but after that, he was popping Tres day and night all around the world. Soon we found ourselves looking forward to Josh’s latest updates from somewhere cool doing a trick we’ve never learned.

Sadly, this all came to an horrific end in Malmö, Sweden after 147 straight days for Tre Flipping . Friedberg explains it like this on Instagram:

I’d been excited to hit up @pontus_alv‘s TBS spot in Malmö and on my last day there two days ago, @chrispastras hit me up to let me know he was going to skate there with @chriscote. I was hyped, we taxied over and ran into @brycekanights on a solo mission rolling and shooting some photos. Changed out a broken bearing thanks to @vernlaird‘s generosity. I had a great time skating with him, @rothdigga @kyleberard and @meronek for the past couple of days and was ready to roll at one of the coolest looking DIY skate spots on the planet. Started messing around and the place was much tougher to skate than it seemed on videos. Much respect to Pontus and everyone that has put it down at TBS. Ended up focused on this little launch to wallride spot. Started getting into a few and BK started filming with his GoPro. Finally committed to one and in a second it was all over. Huge thanks to Bryce, Dune, Chris and the skaters from the Czech Republic that got the ambulance called and kept me company while I couldn’t move. The Malmö emergency room was great and they took good care of me. The bad news – I have a Maisonneuve fracture. The force of dislocating my ankle twisted my leg and spiral-fractured the top of my fibula, tore the ligament between my tibia and fibula and broke a little bone in my ankle. The good news is they determined I could wait and have surgery after I flew home the next day. That’s a whole other story, to be continued … #ohno #hallofmeat

We’re sad to see it end and wish Josh the quickest recovery ever.
