Stance -Uncommon Styles Afoot

The action sports world runs on functionality and style, yet in the sock department we’ve long been prisoners to those tired old tube-socks.  In just 2 years Stance has reinvented street socks with modern art, technology, and by assembling a core collection of action sports icons young and old.

From Duane “The Master of Disaster” Peters to Lizard King to 4th generation ripper Greyson Fletcher, Team Stance is a wrecking crew of unparalleled skate talent and personalities. They hit the road to test their signature socks with features like gripper cushion sole padding enabling the boys to even skate the pool without shoes (4:30). Enjoy the antics…

The Stance Surf Team is equally radical, turning skate expression into surf progression. Led by World Title contender John John Florence, radical designs and outlines were contributed by the next generation of these underground idols and anti-heroes.

Stance socks feature:
+ Moisture and Odor Controlling Mesh vents
+ Russ Pope Paintings
+ Left Right specific toe shape (ON performance styles)
+ Gripper cushion pads, locking foot in place
+ Elastic arch support
+ Seamless toe closure
+ Deep heel pocket
+ Self adjusting welt cuff

Kustom Airstrike -You Pick Surfing’s Best Aerialist

What better catalyst to spark the future of progressive aerial surfing than 5 of the world’s best, competing for $50K on a Mentawais boat trip? This year’s “winner takes all” event included John John Florence, Albee Layer, Matt Meola, Ryan Callinan, and Chippa Wilson. Freesurfing Innersection winners vs World Title Contender, Ausrtalia vs Hawaii… the boys definitely surfed like they had something to prove.

Watch the fourth and most freakish episode as the boys go for broke, boosting man-sized airs over super shallow razor-reefs. Absent in this episode four was Matt Meola, who head-butted some coral in the third segment of the aerial arms race.
