MONSTER MORRISSEY ATTACKS JAPAN

moreisee_street_500.jpg

Our good buddy and team rider Mike Morrissey had the good fortune of being invited to tour Japan with the sickos at Volcom. Veeco had the good sense to document the chaos in words, film and photos. We’d really love to hate this guy if he wasn’t one of the most likable figures around. Excuse us, there’s a beer we need to go cry into.

When does surf wax become more than just sticky treading, but the accessory everyone is on fire for? When it’s Magma, baby! Although they been around the garage scene since 1998, Magma wax, (excuse us, “advanced technical traction”) has recently gone full-bore into research and development to launch the world’s first color-coded bars that allow you to quickly determine what temp that stubby nug in your ashtray is intended for. But if that doesn’t shiver your timbers, keep in mind that the packaging is 100% recycled. Now that’s hot.

Brrrrrrrrr! There were so many adjectives that came to mind when Ted Grambeau sent us this photo from Iceland. Crazy, compelling, nuts, sick, mental, icy… Seriously, we get brain-freeze every time we look at it. Take a closer look for yourself when this latest catalog cover hits your mailbox sometime this week.
