Lib Tech’s Pickup Stick 7’0′

by The Editors on March 16, 2017

Lib Tech has a new little 7 footer that’s for everyone. It’s called the Pickup Stick 7’0″. Think of it as a WaveStorm that’s not embarrassing to be seen with. Here’s what Lib has to say about it.

The Pickup Stick “mid size” shape perfectly fills the gap between a shortboard and a longboard. A smooth flowing shape and rocker combined with a single to double to flat tail contour for high performance shortboard style maneuvers and a concave for nose riding lift, refined but forgiving rails and great volume all add up to non stop wave catching performance/fun. Whether you are a first timer looking for a board that will be easy to progress on, a weekend warrior that is looking for maximum wave time or if you are a ripper looking for that “transition period” mid sized fun/performance option that takes an average day and makes it special, the Pickup Stick is always a perfect choice.

Sounds like the perfect board.

Patagonia Gets Down With Sleeping Bags

by The Editors on March 3, 2017

We know what you’re thinking: hasn’t Patagonia been made sleeping bags for years? We thought that too, but in fact they haven’t. . . until now with the  800 Down Sleeping Bag. 

“After years and years of making one-off sleeping bags for ourselves and people heading out on select trips, we wanted to share what we’ve learned with the greater outdoor community,” said Jenna Johnson, Patagonia’s sr. director, technical outdoor. “Our team built on a deep knowledge of insulation design and thought through every aspect of these sleeping bags, offering our customers a highly crafted, super functional bag option. Sleeping bags are such a crux part of our kit, and they become like a partner as we go out to explore and see new places. I’m very proud of our work and excited to offer these products to our customers.”

Nothing makes sleeping in your car more comfortable than a good mummy bag. For all the official details, please follow the jump.

Patagonia’s PSI Vest Out This Spring

by The Editors on February 24, 2017

Patagonia has announced that they will be releasing their Personal Surf Inflation (PSI) Vest sometime this spring to big wave surfers, however, only those who go through the BWRAG Big Wave Safety Course will be able to purchase one. The company will also license their patented designs to other manufacturers and donate the proceeds to help save Punta de Lobos, an iconic and endangered Chilean surf break.

“The PSI Vest has already played a huge role in giving surfers the confidence to take the sport of big wave surfing to the next level.” said Jason McCaffrey, Patagonia’s Director of Surf. “We invested heavily in testing and refining the PSI Vest, and sought feedback from hundreds of the best surfers in the world, in order to bring to market the best product possible. The PSI Vest will help reduce the risks involved in riding the world’s biggest waves, and I’m excited that licensing fees from our extensive R&D work will be another tool we can use to help protect coastal ecosystems.”

For the official word from Patagonia, please follow the jump.

Plate Lunch + Dakine

by The Editors on February 23, 2017

Collabs are cool because they let a little brand give guidance to a big brand for a while withouthaving to deal with any much big brand drama. And then, after it’s over, the little brand can just go back to doing what they do. Like this deal between Maui’s Plate Lunch brothers Gregg and Cory Kaplan and Dakine.

The Glory Hole Is Closed For Skating

by The Editors on February 22, 2017

Every time we’ve skated NorCal’s Glory Hole we always wondered what it would be like to see Lake Berryessa blasting right on through. Well, thanks to some drone footage, we all know. It’s one massive brown eye of death. It also looks like it’s going to be a while before anyone is slapping stickers past 10 o’clock. Then again, if you slapped one last fall, it’s probably still pretty safe right where it is.

adidas + Ari Marcopoulos = Aight’

by The Editors on February 21, 2017

It’s good to see downtown photographer Ari Marcopoulos still hangin’ with the action crowd. His current incarnation features a collab with adidas skateboarding

Central to the collection is a specially made zine “AIGHT’.” Masterminded by Marcopoulos, the zine is 26 pages capturing a winter day of skateboarding in New York City’s Lower East Side neighborhood and features an amalgamation of mixed media, vibrant color pops and signature aesthetic made consistent throughout the entire collection. Capturing select members of the adidas Skateboarding team, “AIGHT'” is a modern take on Marcopoulos’ early and now iconic work capturing the unique styles and personalities of New York skateboarders during the 1990s Golden Era of skate.

Ari’s photos are always good to see, especially when he’s in charge of their presentation. Watch for more details on the actual product drop on February 27, 2017.
