The Official Andy Irons Untold Story Trailer

by The Editors on October 13, 2016

Teton Gravity Research (the ski film company) has a Andy Irons documentary coming out titled Andy: The Untold Story of Andy Irons. Which they’re currently trying to raise money for on Kickstarter. Here’s how they’re pitching it:

This is the unfiltered life story of three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons. Andy came from humble beginnings on the North Shore of Kauai and rose through the ranks to international surf stardom. He influenced a generation through the public lens as a wild, young phenom, who came to be known as “the people’s champion”. Throughout his life Andy fought an up and down battle with bi-polar disease and drug addiction. Andy passed away suddenly at the age of 32, with his wife 8 months pregnant expecting their first child.

The story is compelling. And we look forward to getting it straight. If you’d like to help finance the completion of the film, click here.

RIP: Dylan Rieder

by The Editors on October 12, 2016

We’re still trying to process the information. Dylan Rieder died today (October 12, 2016) after a battle with leukemia. According to reports he was with his family at the end. Dylan was an individual in a sea of conformity. He lived his way, skated his way, and the cameras loved him for it. Dylan will be remembered forever as one of the most inherently stylish skateboarders ever. He was 28. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and the entire skateboarding community.

As we said on August 24, 2010 when Gravis released Dylan on their website: “Dylan Rieder fans should check it out for their own seven minutes of heaven.” It’s every bit as good today as it was six years ago.

Preparation H Recycles Jackass Skit

by The Editors on October 2, 2016

Few things make you feel older than watching a Preparation H commercial inspired by an early 2000s Jackass skit euphemizing all the things that can be found in a town named like a butt. Watch the new version (above) in Kiester, Minnesota and one of several original versions done by the Jackass crew in Mianus, Connecticut (below).

Reminds us of an old advertising agency slogan: why create when you can regurgitate.
