SNOW TIME!

One of the best things about winter has to be the snow, here are a few images that will make you want to dust off that snowboard,  wax it up and hit the slopes…thank you Mother Nature..

Don’t imagine how cold it might be, imagine the marshmallows toasting in the fire. Not a marshmallow fan? Pop a Lindt Lindor ball in there instead, sooooo good you’ll be wishing you tried it sooner!

Check out some of our snow inspo and shop everything you need for the snow at SurfStitch.

THE WEEKLY WASH UP

The net’s been awash with gold this week but we’ve sifted through it all to present our five favourite Vimeo slices. Grab a beer, log off and relax. The weekend has landed…

THE WALL OF SKULLS

Remember the monster swell that hit Tahiti in May? Sure, it’s been seen in mags and clips 1000 times but this edit from Kendall O’Brien goes behind the scenes of that day. Watching Laurie Towner get his pal Wade Goodall acquainted with towing is compulsive viewing, as are all the wipe outs!

DJINGO UNCHAINED

Whenever Snapper’s on you can bet Dean Dingo Morrison will be getting more tubed than anyone else. And it’s no different when he takes his show on the road.

THE MIND OF JULIAN WILSON

The internet is flooded with edits showcasing crazy aerials today, and this clip’s exactly that. What makes it stand out is the insight into Julian Wilson’s competitive mindset. No wonder he’s where he is.

WHO IS JAMIE O’BRIEN?

Love him or hate him Jamie O’Brien rules the roost in Hawaii. Soft tops, step-off, switch…How much more challenging can he make these monster waves?

FREDDY AUSTBO’S PARALLEL LINES

There’s a lot be said about how similar snowboarding and skateboarding are. Freddy Austbo demonstrates just how closely linked they are.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

To round out this week’s clips we’ve got a little story from our friends at Stacey Surfboards. Pete Abordi’s a legend in the Aussie Hardcore scene but unexpectedly sums up surfing perfectly. “The moment you paddle out everything feels better.” Cheers to that Pete.

Happy Friday everyone!

SAVE UP, GO SHRED. SIMPLE.

If you’re buzzed by riding frozen water chances are you’re perpetually saving for that next trip abroad. Australian snowboarders are known for their enterprising ways when it comes to travelling to ride, and the crew in this Northern Heights series are testament to that. Months were spent squirreling away pennies, doing whatever it took to supplement sponsorship, but once the snow started to fall it was all worth it. Come join Keith Webster, Dylan Champion, Adam Chaston, Matt Wrobel and SurfStitch’s own Hannah McKay as they shred their way all over Japan.

Hannah

And SurfStitch’s Hannah. When shes’ not answering your queries she’s at the snow. Or at sewing school.
