Rodney Mullen vs. “Physics Girl”

by The Editors on June 5, 2018

Watching smart, talented people go all cutesy/sexy in their hunt for more views on the Youtubes can get annoying, but this short on the physics of skateboarding with (cough, cough) “Physics Girl” (a.k.a Dianna Cowern) also features Rodney Mullen. And since he can do no wrong, we endured the cute and exited the bit even more enlightened on why we still have trouble doing even the simplest flip trick and how amazing skateboarding is as a math problem (thanks, Dianna). The Linda Vista skatepark backdrop didn’t hurt either. Watch and learn.


Adidas + Juice At The Venice Pavilion

by The Editors on May 31, 2018

Over the Memorial Day weekend, adidas Skateboarding and BEYOND THE STREETS, in partnership with Juice Magazine, officially celebrated the recreation of the iconic Venice Pavilion with a BBQ-style block party showcasing the best of Venice Beach’s skateboarding, graffiti, and music scenes with an all-star skate jam and concert. Thrashin’, thrashin’. . . “Daggers.!”

Surprisingly, and totally unprompted on Memorial Day we happened to re-watched Thrashin’, the movie that mythologized the “Venice Pit.” Synchronicity? We wouldn’t rule it out.

Killian Guerin & The Teloscopia

by The Editors on May 18, 2018

French Phenom Killian Guerin has put out another edit from somewhere around the world and this time it’s the Telos. Aptly called The Teloscopia, it’s just another check in from Killian showing how much more he progresses and charges with every edit. Perfect viewing for a Friday afternoon “at work.”

Truck Surf Hotel #Vanlife #FTW

by The Editors on May 3, 2018

Thinking of surfing Portugal this summer? The Truck Surf Hotel might just be the perfect place to stay. A Portuguese surf couple took a Mercedes Actros truck and modded it (with the help of an RV building) into an transformer-like two-story, five bedroom hotel that sleeps 10 in beautiful modern style. That may be a few too many people for one bathroom, but you’re in the water all day anyway so whatever. They spend their winters in Morocco and summers in Portugal. For all the details click the link. or here if their website is still crushed.

Jamie Anderson Dances With The Stars

by The Editors on May 2, 2018

In the quest to turn snowboarding athletes into bonafide celebrities who can then cash in on their cross-over fame with massive endorsement deals, Dancing with The Stars has been a favorite. (Louie Vito made it five weeks). This season it was Jamie Anderson’s turn to spin across the stage in the arms of a professional dancer. Well, sadly, before anyone could develop any kind of love for America’s Slopestyle darling, she got bounced right off the show without even making it to week two. But, hey, she did it with a smile on her face that suggested she just might be glad this little stunt is over.


New Andy Irons Docco Trailer

by The Editors on April 24, 2018

We’re all looking forward to checking this one out — especially those of us who were fans of Andy Irons in spite of full knowledge that he was on the downward spiral. We hope Kissed By God can be both a celebration AI’s life and a cautionary tale for an industry that has all too often ignored serious personal issues in pursuit of quality marketing. You know what we mean.

Kissed By God premiere’s in Los Angeles, CA on May 2, 2018 at the Regency Village Theater. In Honolulu, May 6, 2018 at the Hawaii Theatre Center, and in NYC on May 10, 2018 at NYU Skirball. For all the details click the link.

Roark’s New Angle On Trunks Seams

by The Editors on April 23, 2018

At this point in the private equity take over of the surf trunk industry it’s nice to see anyone trying something new. Roark has taken the side seams on their 19 inch Savage board shorts and angled them forward 33 degrees. They say it offers “reduced friction & seam obstruction.”

As anyone who’s spent a week or two near the equator in never-quite-dry trunks can tell you, reduced friction could be huge. We haven’t tried these yet, but we’re stoked to see a sellable feature that just might work.

Babes On Bikes: Women Can Do It All

by The Editors on March 21, 2018

Yes, aside from being able to create new humans inside their own bodies, women can also ride motorcycles, and snowboards, and skateboards. They can also surf. We should all be past needing these reminders, but it’s always good to see evidence every now and again. Here, let Hana Beaman, Sarka Pancochova, Cheryl Maas, and their friends at Harley-Davidson show you a little of what we’re talking about.
