In this ep of JOB 2.0 Jamie hangs out and surfs with a cool kid from the Make A Wish Foundation whose dream is to hang out in Hawaii with Bruce Irons and Jamie and surf some amazing pipelines. We’ve all heard a story about how Jamie is kinda a prick right? Perhaps our favorite truck driver (bar 2John) has turned over a new leaf!
Now that it’s officially sweater season, let’s talk knits. No longer just your average wardrobe basic, this season’s knit packs a stylish punch. Try teaming with your favourite denim and boot combo, or layer over a long sleeve tee to master ladylike chic.
With so many cool styles available we’ve put together these four winter-approved looks ready to wear!
It was arguably the best pipeline final in the history of surfing, as Andy Irons (HAW) claimed a hard-earned victory over long-time rival Kelly Slater (USA), Cory Lopez (USA) and Rob Machado (USA). Why not take a trip down memory lane with this short video of the Rip Curl Pipeline Masters Final 2006!
Here’s Moments 2, a short film by Quiksilver that plunges head first into the individuality of their global surf team. Go from urban sprawl to island perfection with jeremy, have fun and sip coconuts with Dane, see what dreams are made of with the 11X World Champ and get lost in the timeless groove of Ando. Though each rider’s style in unique, the film captures moments in time of their common bond…Surfing.
Filmed at all the good spots including Indonesia, Tahiti, Fiji, Australia, Costa Rica, Mexico and Reunion Island with appearances from a new crop of Young Guns.
Here is the release clip of Billabong’s 2012 swimwear range, modeled by the always cute Zippora Seven and music by Sydney Wayser. “Dream It Up” is from her new album Bell Choir Coast. No one on the corner has swagger like us.
I must say I’m pretty stoked with some of the new footwear brands we’ve received in lately. In the cooler months of last year I pined for a greater variety of styles for women’s boots. Not anymore! My wish finally came true this year with brands such as Billini, Converse and Sole Society all offering a unique range of boots and heels at an affordable price. So I snapped up some of the key styles on offer, my personal fave being the Billini Eden Boot and I’ve barely taken them off since!
So let’s explore the winter boot…
Now shoes play a vital role when putting together your outfit. They expose the personality of your look and are the key to making an outfit work. For example, add a little something to a simple white dress by pairing it with tough military style boots and statement winter jacket. You can have so much fun trying to match the rights shoes to the right outfit… so go on, give it a go!
One of my personal most anticipated albums this year is Temper Trap’s self titled EP. Their 2009 debut album “Conditions” was a work of art and I’m hoping this one will be the same.
Introducing the album to the world with “Need Your Love” it perfectly sets the scene for what’s to come. A pounding beat provides the perfect backdrop as frontman Dougy Mandagi showcases his strong yet fragile voice as he documents his broken heart. “Oh / I need your love / I need your love / I need you now / I need you”.
The Temper Trap will be playing a sold out show at The Forum Theatre in Melbourne, The Sydney Opera House in Sydney and Triple J’s One Night Stand in Queensland this week. I wonder how their new tunes will translate in concert… And if you weren’t lucky enough to score tickets, they’ll be back in November with Coldplay. Check out concert dates here.
Celebrating the great outdoors, the All Star Boot Collection is the latest from our friends at Converse. The Outsider boot (my personal fave!) is winter-ready featuring deep heel treads and thick laces. Take a look.
