While the majority think of sun drenched beaches, boardshorts, and occasional reef-rash when we considering a multi-day surf trip, the flip can sometimes be surprising. Catching up with Quiksilver team riders Balaram Stack & Chase Wilson, it’s no shocker what prompted the 3-day trip to Tofino, B.C. Linking up with Chesterman Beach native, Raph Bruhwiler, the squad went super remote to find left hand point breaks, big chunky tubes and some secret spot Tofino rights. Check out the trip in gotsurf.ca’s new three and a half minute film ‘North,’ and consider the fact that it may be time to update your wetsuit quiver.GotSurf.ca
Rarely is travel the goal, but the desire to experience that drives. Fueled by a budget that only the likes of Nike could afford, and in fact did, filmmaker Casey Neistat and friend Max “irresponsibly” set out on a 10-day trip around the world, to capture an adventure that most will only dream of. Landing a cream gig with Nike to promote the brand’s new FuelBand, Neistat justifiably dedicated the entire budget to an impromptu world tour with buddy Max. Weaved amongst footage of New York City, Paris, Cairo, Johannesburg, Bangkok and beyond, are inspirational quotes from some of the world’s greatest leaders/writers/sex symbols (Abraham Lincoln, Hunter S. Thompson and Marilyn Monroe, respectively). Translating the raw thrill of the unknown, if this film doesn’t inspire you to buy the ticket and take the ride, check your pulse. #MakeItCount#MakeItCount, Casey Neistat
Catching up with 18 year-old Brazilian born surfer Gabriel Maedina on Hawaii’s North Shore, watch as the young aerialist stomps, cuts and get’s super shacked at Oahu’s world-class break. Running nearly 9 minutes long, Medina’s raw talent combined with some of the shore’s sexiest beach babies make this video well worth a view. The 2011 ASP Breakthrough Performer of the Year, goofy-footed Medina is currently competing for top ranks amongst the world best surfers.Gabriel Medina
It’s not a skate deck. It’s not a snowboard. It doesn’t have wheels and you can’t ride it. It’s a Louisville Slugger. A baseball bat… and ESPN’s ‘The Reincarnation Of A aforementioned‘ almost makes you wanna swing one. Watch as a tree in Pennsylvania leaves the woods and makes it’s way to the majors.
*NOTE: In honor of opening day… don’t get used to Scoutwell featuring baseball bat movies. Nah-uh.ESPN, Louisville Slugger
