One thing the Australians do well, are the things a guy loves! Toys, Beer, surf, fishing and of course scantily clad, very hot girls being badly behaved. Enter the Mad Hueys annual calendar, with accompanying video. Cheers boys!
Mr Casual returns with another Kai Neville creation. Craig Anderson has to be the most understated surfer, but when he gets in the water it is all style and flare. Watch this film and glory in the flashbacks to another era, mixed with the most modern of maneuvers.
Craig, “Driving across Australia. Hunting uncrowded waves. I like how hard the spots are to get too. I like being mysto in the desert. I like being in the jungle.”
Love him or hate him, or just be plain confused by him, one thing we can all agree on is that Bobby Martinez is one hell of a surfer. One of my all time favorite backhand surfers, I was pretty sad to see him quit the tour. Luck for us, Monster Energy saw his potential and now sponsor him to be free and do what he loves.
Bobby Martinez fires off on, well… everything. Check http://backdraft.surfline.com for the fullscreen photo feature + bonus interview.
I hope you all have a fantastic Heritage Day and that you get out there, explore, surf, enjoy a longboard and of course Braai! This video with it’s awesome song and vibe will definitely put you in the mood!

I have watched this over and over and cannot fathom how he made this wave! Absolutely incredible.

The crew at Arbor have a solid track record of great movies, whether Snowboarding or Downhill Skating. So I was pretty dam excited to watch their latest Downhill piece, Grade.
Caliber Truck Co. and Arbor Skateboards, in association with Blood Orange, present GRADE; a downhill/freeride full-length film chronicling a year of travel with our top team riders. Tag along with James Kelly, Liam Morgan, Tyler Howell, Brandon Tissen, and Jordan Riachi as they travel to some of the most critical and challenging roads in the world. GRADE was filmed on location in Mexico, Hawaii, Northern Sierras, Laguna Beach, Australia, and Switzerland.
There are moments watching this film that I was literally breathing hard and clutching the armrests on my chair. You can almost feel the adrenaline shooting through the riders veins with every wobble and vehicle drive by. I highly recommend watching it!
Lets be honest, the Australians don’t do anything in half measures, so when the boys at the Mad Hueys decided to do a calendar, featuring some of their hot female friends, it was always going to be full tilt. Move aside Reef, haha, the Mad Hueys are here!
We all love free! Vans were one of the first brands in surf to realize the power of organic, viral distribution for marketing when they started putting out free films a few years back. Everyone loves a free surf flick to amp up too! So enjoy this one…

Mick Fanning is busy looking for his 3rd World Title at Pipeline. If he gets it, Kelly Slater needs to win Pipe to deny him, and Mick will join an elite club of surfers , with more than 2 World Titles. Good timing then for a movie by the modern day surf film guru, Taylor Steele to come out. I am frothing to watch it! (Keep an eye out for mental SA footage!)
Taylor Steele’s brand new film – “MISSING” – puts ASP World Champion, Mick Fanning, in some of the most radical places on the planet alongside his good friends John John Florence, Jordy Smith, Matt Wilkinson and Tom Curren.
Under the direction of the world renowned film-maker, the project takes Mick Fanning out of the competition world of the ASP, gives him a boarding pass with a blank destination and for 21 days he is relocated all over the world with only a passport, suitcase and surfboard at his disposal. As a result, the surfing is special, raw and some of the best that you’ll see on screen this year. From Africa and Ireland to Central America and Spain, the experience literally is life changing for Mick Fanning.
“I was going on a trip to somewhere but I didn’t know where, kind of like being kidnapped,” said Mick Fanning.
“There was no schedule or timeline, only life. I felt like I was in the real world for the very first time and it made me so happy to see the world that clearly.”
I have just had an epic week up at Afriski in Lesotho and expect some videos of that very soon! In the meantime enjoy this week’s Friday Mix, starting with my pal, Wok, jaunting through some fun Bali Tubes with his mate and RVCA surfer, Adam Bennets.
Next up we go down south to the land of Oz and some serious BMX action from the FOX Bmx Pro! These dudes are caning it!
Lastly we go down memory lane with Skate wunderman, Kilian Martin and some seriously tripped out action from one of his older clips from 2011. This guys blows my mind!
