Stay Home, Kooks!

by The Editors on March 18, 2020

A little reminder to everyone who believes that total Coronavirus lockdown is the perfect time to travel to hike your favorite resort, skate a distant park, or surf a break that’s not in your front yard. Don’t do it. Stay home.

Mammoth Lakes Tourism speaks for almost every place on the planet right now with the following message:

We’re asking anyone who is not a primary resident of Mammoth Lakes or providing essential services to our residents NOT to visit Mammoth Lakes for the time being. The reason is simple: as a small, remote mountain community our healthcare facilities lack the capacity to handle a widespread outbreak of COVID-19. Additionally, services in Mammoth Lakes are currently extremely limited. Mammoth Mountain and restaurants (excluding takeout services), bars and other public spaces are temporarily closed due to county-mandated health orders. Public gatherings have also been prohibited by the Mono County Public Health Officer.

In other words, stay home kooks! And, if you do live where it’s epic, and you’re able to get out ALONE then please, by all means, share your content with the rest of us who are hunkered down, indoors, for the foreseeable future, doing whatever it is we’re do. We’re all in this together.

Shot By Joe Carlino on Apple iPhone

by The Editors on January 27, 2020

Let’s just say we knew Joe Carlino way back when he was shooting on Mini-DV in the San Bernardino mountains. It’s good to see his image capturing device choices have gotten even smaller since then. Nice work for Apple, Joe. Baldface has rarely looked better and Danny Davis, Kimmy Fasani, Red Gerard, and Ben Ferguson look pretty good as well. For a little behind the scenes discussion of how Joe did it click here.

Two Chrises Riding Around In A Car

by The Editors on January 8, 2020

ESPN can eat a crate of barbecued donkey dung, and the X Games, well, they can slurp up the left overs with a stainless steel straw, but getting to listen to The Nine Club’s Chris Roberts on the other side of the questions, and to have them delivered by Chris Nieratko, is a pretty good set up. Which is just another way of saying that this interview is worth watching.

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.
