Chippa Wilson begun to speak about it, and BOOM, that’s it, ESPN, the famous channel which organizes the X-Games launched: “The Real Surf”. That’s it, the surfing is in the X-Games, but it’s not a traditional surfing competition, but a video competition. Eight professional surfers were invited to produce a video of 1 minute in length and were judged by a jury stemming from the surf industry .
So it’s through the video competition “The Real Surf”, that some of the great stars of the surf are going head to head, as their Internet audience decides on the winners!
Gabriel Médina, the winner of the competition, filmed the best sequence with his progressive style and beat Kelly Slater, Chippa Wilson, Dion Agius, Josh Kerr, Jordy Smith, Matt Meola and Albee Layer. Gabriel walked away with a $50.000 check and a golden medal from the X-Games.

The drop crotch jean and pant is a new and daring trend not for the faint hearted. However, when done right it is a fresh style that gives a street edge to ordinary jeans. For some this look may be a bit too much, but if you style it with a basic tee and sneakers you will have a statement, edgy look. Don’t ever get this look confused with the MC hammer pant, this is definitely nota baggy, loose style circa 1980s. To stop you getting confused between the two don’t go for a loose drop crotch to your knees instead choose a more subtle cut with a tapered leg.
This Monday has me musing about the beautiful sunsets we keep seeing here on the Gold Coast. Autumn is in full swing, and the colourful, early sunsets are sweeping me away on a daily basis. What brought this on, you ask? Why, our roof top SurfStitch 400 Brands Staff Party, of course! Photos are coming later this week, but let me paint you a picture… as we enjoyed our drinks and canapes, the sky was draped in slivers of fluorescent oranges, mixed with bubblegum pinks, corals and bits of remaining blue and grey.
There’s nothing more calming than a beautiful sunset, and we got to enjoy it at its’ best – today I’m dreaming of all of the beautiful sunsets we’re lucky enough to see, and the incredible colours they show you. Dream with me this Monday, and shop my SurfStitch inspiration!
Faux fur vests and jackets are the perfect accompaniment to any wardrobe this season. Think 50s glamour or hip 70s chick. Wear a vest with a pair of boots and jeans or a jacket/parka over the top of a shift dress.
Get yourself a furry friend to keep you cosy when the temperature starts to drop!
Taylor Momsen’s coat is trimmed with fur which keeps her look edgy.
Eva Longoria is always the perfect lady with this delicate faux fur vest.
In some countries, winter is white, but in beautiful Queensland, Australia, we can only dream! Reminiscent of snow flakes and ski jackets, the different hues of white on SurfStitch have me reminiscing about white winters and crisp air.
Enjoy my Monday Musings and picture the bright whites of a winter snow, the egg-shell mug holding your hot chocolate and the off-white of your warm bed covers, enveloping you in the early mornings.
We’ve raved about the arm candy here at SurfStitch, but there’s another trend we’re loving in the realm of accessories. The stacked and over-the-top rings! The more the better, with the artistic mixing of styles, shapes and materials making your manicured hands look all the more intriguing.
One of my favourite things is introducing you guys some of the SurfStitch team that help to get your orders to you! Meet Tash from Customer Service, one of the friendly voices that answers your calls and Mickey our Picking Supervisor who makes sure your orders are shipped before 2pm each day.
When’s she’s not answering SurfStitch emails and calls Natasha can be found sunning herself at the beach, spending her paycheck at the shops or on her couch watching Sex & The City.
Check out Natasha and Mickey’s picks from our latest selection of New Arrivals which will be hitting the site this week!
Mickey is our resident SurfStitch warehouse character and spends his spare time restoring his motorcycle. He is the lead singer in Dead Beat Band, if you’re a Gold Coast local you may have seen them play some venues!
Here at SurfStitch we have just uploaded a bunch of new knits, sweaters and jackets to keep you warm and toasty this freezin’ season. Get some inspiration for your new jacket look from our outfit ideas below.
Thought a blazer was only for formal occasions? Think again with this Neuw Night Jacket, pair with a plain tee and some jeans and you’re ready to jet.
I’m sure we have said this before but the denim jacket is just an absolute classic. From Bruce Springsteen in the 80s to Brandon Flowers of the Killers, the denim jacket can be hung up next to jeans as a staple piece. If you’re bold enough you can even pair you two classics together.
At SurfStitch we tend to attract staff with a bit of an adventurous spirit. We just love being outside – barefoot wandering, feeling the dirt in between our toes, saltwater hair, wind on our faces. With quite a few staff working out of SurfStitch HQ on the Gold Coast we have a mix of surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders which means that any given month someone could be shredding in Japan or island hopping in Indonesia, fuelling their wanderlust.
We wanted to share a little bit of our outdoor lifestyle with you.
Meet David from Customer Service:
“Skateboarding for me these days is more an excuse to turn a typically mundane task into an enjoyable activity in itself. Filling the gaps between home -> surf -> coffee -> work. The walk/drive may seem like chore but if you’re ripping and weaving between obstacles on the way; you’re living the saying ‘happiness is in the journey, not the destination’. Be warned: if you’re choosing your destinations wisely, you may develop a facial imbalance because the muscles used to frown will be fairly unused.
Start your next adventure now with some of our iconic skate brands.
