The History of Vans

Vans — loved them what I was young. Gave up on them while skating as the uppers didn’t last. Back to them cause I love them.

Not your average rental kook

Bali on small waves — on a rented T&C 9′ 6″. Killing in.

“A boy called Jack riding a hired board from kuta : town and county hawai 9’6”

More info…

“According to Tom Woods from ST Surf Images (thanks Tom, for tuning us into this video…!), Jack Lynch could not get his boards to Bali due to another airline/luggage fiasco, so he hired this old log in Kuta and get his shred on.”

Malik’s right footage

With an opening still like the one above — how can you not watch ?!! Worth clicking through to VIMEO and watching HD if you can.

“About a year ago, I had the chance thanks to Tim Mc Kenna to shoot one of the best sessions I have ever shot since I’m filming surfing. Tim and me discretly escaped from the contest in Teahupoo to join Kelly Slater, Manoa Drollet and Benjamin Sanchis to go to this super fickl wave called “Malik’s right” by the boys. Just us on the spot for few hours, only two friendly locals Hector and Aken came to get few waves. I have been using few waves of this session for my movie “Cloud9” but I couldn’t get the opportunity to show what happened really and to give a sample of the vibe there. It was a very special moment for all of us, we dedicate this session to Malik Joyeux, we miss you brother.

Thanks Sam Smith for the amazing under water shots and thanks to TMK for having me onboard!

Cy’s Sunrise Lefts

More eye candy from Cyrus Sutton somewhere in South America. Beautiful colours through the pitching lip. (Click here and watch it in HD)

“This sequence was taken from my recent trip to S. America. My girl’s been studying abroad down there for a few months so I headed down for some lovin’ and long lefts. I purposefully didn’t bring any camera equipment except for a little HD Go Pro camera. The morning of what was supposedly the swell of the season, my girlfriend and I woke up before dawn and navigated the rocks to empty spinning lefts. For forty-five minutes we shared sunrise lefts. Eventually the pack paddled out and the camera fogged up, so I ditched the head rig and shared perfect waves with the locals all day. I’m stoked to have these opening rides recorded, it was a session I’ll never forget…”
