SurfStitch present: Sliced (Pudding) – featuring Dion Agius, Craig Anderson and Creed McTaggart!

Get ready to light up your screens with Sliced (Pudding), a new clip featuring the one and only Dion Agius and friends Craig Anderson and Creed McTaggart, presented by SurfStitch! If you have you been stuck in the mind frame of ‘every surf movie looks the same lately,’  take a step back and remember the days when you used to froth over every piece of new footage in the surfing world. There’s no repeated side angles of Teahupo’o and no crowded Pipeline line-up in this one, but rather a mix of punchy reefs and beach breaks in which they all go mental in, cementing their surfing abilities in all of our minds. This new clip by the trio was filmed in just one week on the East Coast of Australia, and the finished product is simply absolutely amazing.

Dion is known for his unique styles in and out of the water, and that’s why we love him. He surfs incredible and is a down to earth, straight up good guy. If you are into huge airs, powerful hacks and epic barrels, put 9 minutes of your life aside and treat yourself to the wonder that is ‘Sliced (Pudding).’ The clip contains mind blowing surfing while also including, well as Dion puts it, “a bunch of other bullsh*t that happens in between.”

Follow Dion and the rest of the guys through the eyes of film maker Toby Cregan as you see first hand the lifestyles they lead, their perspectives and how the trio all surf so well. You’ll truly be blown away with their ability to destroy any wave and line-up they find!

SurfStitch are proud to be apart of such an amazing project, with this being the first of many to come, so stay tuned! With that said, get over that Mondayitis and put your feet up, its time to enjoy our new featured clip ‘Sliced (Pudding).’

THE FUTURE?

Last week Surfstich’s Basque neighbours at Wavegarden dropped this clip and wow are we excited!  It seems the European wave wizards have upped the size and power on a previously developed setup, and with the endorsements of Dane and Taj credibility has skyrocketed.

Wavegarden 2.0 – June 2013 from wavegarden on Vimeo.

Unlike artificial snow, the Wavegarden has the potential to match, or even be better than the real thing. Here at SS we’re losing our minds over the video, but we still had a few questions so we got Wave Garden’s head of media Felip Verger on the line for some answers…

So Felip, it looks great, but when can we have a go?

We, at Wavegarden, are a technology company and have designed and patented this technology. We are not planning to run any “wavegardens”, but rather to sell installations to customers (who will be running them. Think of us like makers of snow guns, our customers are ski resorts, not the skiers and snowboarders.

I see. So how much to put one in our backyard?

It’s impossible to tell, it depends on many variables. Let’s just say a minimum of three million Euros. A team of investors in Bristol in the UK have estimated they they’ll charge 15 pounds ($25.00AUD) p/hour once their facility is up and running.

Was it hard to get Dane, Taj and the world’s best surfers to test it?

No, not at all. They had all heard of the project and seen the previous videos, so it was easy to get them during the down days of the Quik Pro France. All surfers want to experience new waves! Taj actually sent us a very nice e-mail from Fiji this week, he was stoked on the video.

Is it possible to increase the size? What’s stopping you from making it double overhead?

In a bigger lagoon you can make bigger waves, and also much longer ones. If you have a lagoon one km long, you can make a one km long wave non- stop, keeping the shape and the speed and the power of the wave along the whole journey.

So there you have it, the future of surfing is here.

Now we just need three million Euros…

Craig Anderson!

Now, have the pleasure of Craig Anderson, bouncing around in Mexico. Some of those barrels make you wanna book a flight straight to Huatulco. As we’ve said before, Quiksilver’s annual trunk videos are some of the best in the game and we’re very fond of them. Oh, they’re made by Kai Neville.

Kai Neville Studio (2012 Reel)

Last year was of a grand scale for Kai Neville Studio. Dear Suburbia the shining star, obviously, with many more smaller projects in between. Of all the 2012 wrap clips you’ve seen, this is the most visually stunning. There’s no doubt Kai’s at the top of the surf filmmaking game this reel is a clear indication of why. And, ain’t the Chromatics cover of New Order’s Ceremony just excellent?

Jordy, Dane, Kolohe, Yadin, Mick, and more!

The Quiksilver Pro, France wrapped some time ago, we know. But we dig seeing new footage, even if it ain’t still smoking. And, even if it ain’t all stomped moves. We’re fond of seeing what men like Jordy Smith are going for. By Internet standards, this is kinda old. Can you believe that? There’s clips of Jordy, Kolohe Andino, Yadin Nicol, Dane Reynolds, Craig Anderson, Mick Fanning and John Florence in here. So, there’s that.

Oh, and one little treat just below.  Nic Von Rupp surfs well, yes?

SHOW AND TELL WITH CRAIG ANDERSON.

Craig Anderson is one of the most relaxed-looking surfers around. But his bag of tricks is hardly relaxed. In fact, it’s the opposite. In DC Shoes’ latest Show and Tell clip, which features the goofy-footer from Newcastle, we get a glimpse into what Craig’s been up to lately.
