John Lydon’s Hawaii Calls

by The Editors on February 3, 2023

Have enjoyed Lydon’s music since Never Mind the Bollocks. Our thoughts go out to Lydon and his wife. And the song? What better way to slide into the weekend. Aloha, indeed.


Accoutrement: T-Rice Puts Us All Right There

by The Editors on February 1, 2023

Thank you, Travis Rice. Thank you for leaving out the helicopters filming helicopters. Thank you for cutting it all down to snowboarding. Thank you for taking the sickest drops, for slicing all those spines. Thank you for the perfect snow and brilliant light. Thank you for the epic POV. But, thank you most of all for riding all those lines so we don’t have to (even though watching this kinda makes us feel like we did)!

Haven’t laughed this hard in a while. Thank you, Tony Hawk. Oh, and Aubrey Plaza.


Luke Shepardson Wins The Eddie

by The Editors on January 22, 2023

It was a great show. Fun to watch. The waves were huge. And a 27-year-old Oahu lifeguard named Luke Shepardson fittingly won the 2023 Eddie Aikau Invitational. We were most stoked by the fact that the event, which some argued would never happen without a previous corporate sponsor’s involvement, seemed to run flawlessly. The crowd onshore was massive (estimated at 50,000), the Kam was a parking lot, and the live show rolled well all day with all the angles any fan of big wave surfing could ask for. Best surf event ever? We think so.

Top 10 results went like this:

  1. Luke Shepardson
  2. John John Florence
  3. Mark Healey
  4. Billy Kemper
  5. Kai Lenny
  6. Ezekiel Lau (Best Wave of the Day)
  7. Landon McNamara
  8. Keali’i Mamala
  9. Lucas Chianca
  10. Ross Clarke-Jones

Paige Alms was the highest placing female surfer in 31st place ahead of Makani Adric, and Keala Kennelly.

Congratulations to the Aikau family and everyone involved with making January 22, 2023 an epic day at The Bay for everyone. For full results and coverage check out Or, just press play to watch the whole thing.

Mason Aguirre’s Redemption Story

by The Editors on December 6, 2022

There was a time when Mason Aguirre was one of the highest paid snowboarders in the world. His smooth-flowing, rock star halfpipe style made him a standout in any terrain. Few snowboarders have had more raw natural talent. And during the first decade of the new millennium it seemed like Mason was everywhere (including placing fourth in the 2006 Torino Olympics).

Then, in what seemed like a minute, he was gone. The Bomb Hole Podcast gets Mason’s entire back story. What he went though and how he made it back. It is a cautionary tale. Thankfully, the same skills that put Mason to the top in snowboarding, helped him get back to sobriety, happiness, and success.

Rough Around The Edges: The Ride Story

by The Editors on October 20, 2022

Nothing makes us feel older than a 30 year retrospective of pretty much anything. In this case it’s Ride Snowboards. For their new docco Rough Around The Edges they put a who’s who list of OG shreds from the 90s into a Corbusier and let them run. Every single somebody from the era is represented. Can’t wait to see the entire thing. 


Walker Ryan Is Good For Skateboarding

We’ve said it for years, but here’s a little reminder about author/skater Walker Ryan from Old Friends. And, if you want to read a great skate book, click here for Top of Mason.

Buried: The Alpine Meadows Avalanche Story

by The Editors on October 13, 2022

Apparently, Buried is a great documentary on what can happen when falling snow and avalanche prediction/control are at odds. It’s also a compelling reminder of something an old Mammoth Mountain ski patroller used to tell us: “This isn’t Disneyland. It’s the great out-of-doors.”

Spike Jonze Gets Epicly Later’d

by The Editors on September 19, 2022

Patrick O’Dell chases down the story of an East Coast BMX kid who became the most innovative, influential image grabber in skateboarding and, arguably, the world in general. Yep, it’s Spike Jonze. The nicest, kindest, coolest, creative genius we’ve ever had the chance to hang out with.
