It sounds so basic, we don’t know why we didn’t think of it earlier? It’s the 3 pack of Swell tri-blend tees that are flying out the door faster than Superman after a Red Bull vodka binge. It could be the core score-raising, garnish-free aspect of the tees, the cush feel that some have compared to the beard of Zeus, or the fact that buying in three means cutting down on laundry days to make time for more Guitar Hero practice. But whatever it is, we’re placing the Swell 3-Pack Tees at the top of our must have list. We suggest getting a full sixer of the plush tri-blend tees, because who wouldn’t want a bigger package?

Quick: What’s “short, funny and frothing”, and currently reigns as the NSSA High School State Champ?
That would be none other than San Clemente High School’s Shaw Kobayashi.
But State Champ is just one of many victories. Shaw has earned in his impressive 10-year competitive career. However, it’s the title of being a top ranking ASP pro surfer that currently has Shaw’s full attention. Which is exactly what his team managers and coaches are positioning him for. (more…)
This past Saturday dished out some killer jams and sick shredding at the Roxy Chicken Jam held at Mammoth Mountain. A free Santogold and Cold War Kids concert, combined with a few solid days of riding at Mammoth, topped off with a cush ride in the Spy Optic van, made the trek from San Diego to Mammoth a pretty sweet little journey.
Although the snow was a little slushy, the free concert at the Village at Mammoth more than made up for its mediocrity. The packed crowd brought a great mountain town dynamic to the outdoor show with a heaping portion of dancing boots, sparklers and Coors heavy. Santogold kicked it up with some stage diving action, her infamous metallic backup dancers, and a sexually ambiguous character in a panda hat. After Santogold hyped up the dance crowd, the Cold War Kids turned up the rock factor with killer energy and heavy keys. It’s safe to say the show’s energy and large crowd size made for pretty sparse slopes the next morning. Not that I was awake to witness this first hand, but I could only imagine. Above is a little taste of the Cold War Kids. Sorry about the video quality; dancing and filming make a poor combination sometimes.

Further proving he’s cool like that, President Obama invited RVCA founder and CEO PM “Pat” Tenore and several other small business owners to the White House this month to discuss strategies aimed toward helping small businesses. Pat was gracious enough to provide an in depth rundown of his visit, including President Obama’s strong interest in Kelly Slater’s tour standings after the recent Australian contests. (more…)
