Andrew Cotton Broken At Nazaré

by The Editors on November 9, 2017

What can I say, I got a little excited this morning and ending up having possibly the worst wipeout impact wise of my life. Thank you to all the lifeguards and crew on the beach who helped stabilise me and do a great spinal recovery, I can’t name everyone but you all did your bit to get me safely to the hospital . Obviously huge shout out to the team: @mcnamara_s for the waves, @hugovau for rescue, company and laughs in the hospital and @polvo32 for the calls on the radio and friendship . I have broken my back but I’ve been really lucky, I’m already looking forward and focusing my energy to get fit and back out there on some more big rollers ! 🌊🙌🏽🇵🇹 • Footage comes from Wednesday while @go_dids was filming a documentary about @mcnamara_s's return to big wave surfing, produced by @polikromia

Bunker77: Bunker Spreckels Bio Trailer

by The Editors on October 31, 2017

We’ve been waiting for this Takuji Masuda film for a while now and it looks like we’re getting pretty close.

BUNKER77 is the wild true story of a young American rebel seeking freedom, love, and authenticity in a chaotic world. The film chronicles Clark Gable’s step son and heir to a sugar fortune, Bunker Spreckels. A controversial surf star from the late 60s into the 70s who pushed the limits of riding very short boards in the most critical waves of Hawaii, mentored skateboard legend Tony Alva to his world championship, and collaborated with film auteur Kenneth Anger right before his dynamic life was cut short at 27 in 1977. Opens in NYC on 10/27 & LA on 11/3!

Tyler Chorlton Does Mammoth

by The Editors on October 23, 2017

It’s called California Carving, but we just like it ’cause Mr. Chorlton slices and dices it up every which way and makes snowboarding look fun again. Maybe it’s the pickle fork of death that gets us on the switch carves or just those spring days at Mammoth. . .

The Fourth Phase: All Action Cut

by The Editors on October 19, 2017

Remember when The Fourth Phase came out and everyone was debating whether it was a good snowboard movie or not, in spite of the fact that it contained mind-blowing snowboarding? Well, this 18-minute action cut proves that they had the goods even if they may not have packaged it to everyone’s liking. It’s also a reminder of how short our attention spans are and that when it comes to snowboard films the old “action plus music” formula is very difficult to beat. Here, let T-Rice, Mark Landvik, Eric Jackson, Bryan Iguchi, Pat Moore, Mikkel Bang, Cam FitzPatrick, Shin Biyajima, Bode Merrill, Jeremy Jones, Victor de Le Rue, Ben Ferguson, and the rest explain it. 


Jeremy Jones’ Life of Glide Teaser

by The Editors on October 18, 2017

The title of Jeremy Jones‘ new short film Life of Glide is the perfect title for the big mountain master. Jones’ ability to glide through all kinds of hairy situations is legendary and if he can get even a little of that down in this film, it’s going to be well worth checking out. The film premieres soon.
