11/11/10 – Thursday: Laguna Beach – At 7pm, Thalia Street Surf Shop will be hosting an event for Brixton & Deus Motorcycles for their collaboration debut. There will be raffles, giveaways and lots of vintage motorcycles on display. After 9pm the party will head down to the Marine Room where the beer will flow like wine and the women will instinctively flock to like the Inn at Capistrano…

Andy Irons joins his Billabong buddy Parko on the injury reserve after Dengue Fever sent him to the hospital shortly after arriving in Puerto Rico. Andy returned to Hawaii hoping to recover from the illness in time to compete in the Pipemasters on Dec.8.
Many considered the two time Rip Curl Search Champ a favorite to win the comp due to his ability to master new breaks in a couple sessions. We wish Andy a speedy recovery.
Puerto Rico declared Dengue Fever an epidemic, with 28 fatalities and 757 confirmed cases this year. As the fastest growing mosquito-born illness in the world, Dangue Fever endangers pasty-skinned surfers traveling in the tropics. Dengue is an incurable virus, meaning you could have malaria-like flare ups throughout your life. Avoid this vacation killer with insect repellent, mosquito nets, long-sleeve shirts, and pants.
Luckily these mosquitoes don’t hang around beaches, so the boys at Middles can eat their Mofungo with ease.

There is street skating, vert skating and now shopping cart skating??
If there was ever a way to get your folks on a skateboard this would be it.
This clever viral video released by Voltzwagon Sweden shows a group of guys that outfit several shopping carts with skateboard attachments. A good portion of the video is shot with the HD GoPro camera that works equally well in the cheese isle as it does in 10 foot Pipe..
Hopefully someone will start the “shopping cart skateboard is not a crime” movement and then we might see some of these pop up at our local grocery stores.
Until then I guess we’ll have to get our jollies from hijacking the “Customer in Training” mini shopping carts or watching the old CKY cart bailouts
