This Week’s Top Review…

“Single male seeks a tee that enjoys short walks on the beach, long train rides to the beach, and doesn’t mind the occasional foam spillage. Fondness for road sodas a plus.”
We were more than happy to play matchmaker Mr. Nicvstheworld!

Trend Alert: Ponchos

August 26th, 2011 | By | 4,504 Comments


Top Trend: Ponchos…South-of-the-border style, sans itchiness!
We’ve always love the look of the classic 90′s Stussy poncho. Aside from the traditional crunchy itchiness factor that is.
Enter the new, soft as a baby hippo tummy, poncho! This season’s sauced-up take on the the poncho is far from the poncho-paraphernalia sold next to the corn-in-a-cup booth. This year’s ponchos include details such as leather lace-ups, fringed hems, a sheer chiffon. (more…)

As Dane’s new favorite free-surf board, this ugly little bugger took about a year of extensive field-testing and experimentation to perfect. It features a straight chop tail and a bit more girth through to the nose to give you better rail to rail surfing in all types of conditions.

The Mighty Neckbeard

The Neck Beard is similar to its cousin, the Dumpster Diver, but features a flatter and stubbier design with a shallower concave and a V though the back. The result is a super-fast, user-friendly board that will liven up most any session. Dane rides his N’eard in anything from 1 foot to overhead, which for many of us anchored here in Southern California is pretty much the extent of our wave scale.

Neck Beard by Mr. Dane Reynolds

The Neck Beard is a necessary addition to anyone’s quiver and if you’ve already seen it in Dane’s Lost Atlas seggy, then I don’t have to tell you that this board was made to blow minds.

What more can I say? I mean the board even has its own Twitter account

Still not convinced? Check out this vid and try not to drool on your keyboard.

You can almost feel the stubble forming beneath your filthy jowls can’t you?
