Get Up, Stand Up (In Your Bob Marley Tee/Skate/Shades)


Another season of roots rocking the Bob Marley gear has arrived. This year Billabong has (puff, puff) passed on the proverbial Bob Marley torch to VonZipper and Sector 9. All three brands are spreading the green goodness this season with collaborations on Bob Marley skateboards, sunglasses, tees and more. The only thing that would make us happier at this point would be a combo brownie/Chex Mix pack.

WeWood: You so wood!
What’s better than hugging trees? Wearing them (and planting a new ones). Born in Italy out of, you guessed it, trees, these eco watches are avante-guard as well as eco-friendly. Completely absent of artificial and toxic materials, WeWood continues its environmental mission by planting one tree for every watch sold.

May your friends be green with envy and your wrist be green with WeWood watches.

Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay 2011 Webisode #2

July 6th, 2011 | By | 281 Comments

After a month or two of WCT inaction, the dream tour wakens from it’s slumber for stop #4 at Jeffery’s Bay, South Africa on July 14th.

J-Bay ranks among the most important stops on the tour, not only because of the culture and high-performance aspects, but because it determines who stays in the world title race, and who is on the bubble of falling off the mid year cut. The early swell outlook shows less than favorable conditions, but you never know what waves can pop up down around the African cape.

Enjoy Billabong webisode #2, and stay tuned on Swell’s Facebook for the give-a-ways we’re planning in honor of this classic event. Any early comp predictions?
