Side Notes is a weekly round up of everything and anything that catches our short attention span over the past week, coming to you live and direct every Friday.
Flow State - Russell Bierke
Following big wave charger Russell Bierke as he takes on the unforgiving Shipsterns this year, as well as an intense wipeout and subsequent successful wave that Russ has since deemed the best he has ever seen the spot. The wipeout early on would be enough to deter most surfers, let alone to paddle back out and catch one of the most insane airdrops caught on film. The twenty-two year old is well worth watching.
Metallica - The Four Horseman
Kill 'Em All. The album that started it all, when heavy metal riffs collided face first with hardcore punk tempo, spawning thrash metal as a counter to the glam metal fallout of the 1970s. The entire album still holds up incredibly, the production both clean and raw, this is (almost) peak Metallica.
Shipwrecks - Nusa Lembongan, Indonesia
Bones Brigade - An Autobiography
The spiritual sequel to Dogtown and Z-Boys, Bones Brigade follows the creation of the greatest team of skaters; Tony Hawk, Steve Cabellero, Rodney Mullen Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Per Welinder. The documentary shows how Peralta, after the disbanding of the Zephyr team, joined up with George Powell to start Powell Peralta, allowing him to bring together and discover the likes of Tony Hawk and Rodney Mullen, unquestionably the greatest of all time. One of the best documentaries made so set aside two hours right now and enjoy.
