SURF

Spoons - A Santa Barbara Story

Never-before-seen archival footage from the Golden Age of surfing, detailing the history from Santa Barbara to Australia featuring the likes of Bruce Brown, George Greenough, Tom Curren, Nat Young and remastered footage from just about every classic surf film of the period. Watch here



MUSIC

Arctic Monkeys - 505

We all have our own 505 where we reluctantly revisit. Few songs can pack such an emotional punch as this one, the closing track of their sophomore effort; Favourite Worst Nightmare. The slow build up with the somber organ, Alex returning to a place where she waits, hands between her thighs, before he inevitably crumbles completely when she cries.



TRAVEL

Ku-Ring-Gai Chase, New South Wales, Australia


Skate

Blood Wizard Skateboards - The Occult

Sketchy, bloody, gnarly and just downright hardcore wizardry, the three part series has it all, now lovingly stitched together for your macabre enjoyment. The Blood Wizard crew turn full ditch wizards in attacking some of the most unappealing and sketchy ramps, pipes, storm drains and all kinds of concrete creations.
