Billabong x Andy Davis

A new collaboration has just hit the shelves. Surf, art, retro. Tick, tick, tick. No, that’s not your biological clock, that’s me pretending to tick boxes. Weirdo

Slim Pickings :: Trunks

Slim Pickings :: Trunks

Since we talk about so much stuff that you ain’t ever going to get your hands on, we figured we should be looking around at what you can buy. First up, trunks.

Rhythm Hi-Summer

Rhythm Hi-Summer

Hi-Summer, it means scorching hot days where you need to sprint down the sand and then jump on your towel so your feet don’t blister.

La Collection De Kook | Rhythm

La Collection De Kook | Rhythm

Another one of the collections that Rhythm has in store for the coming summer season, La Collection De Kook. Taking a twist from the surf hipster vibe that is currently absorbing the scene right now, Rhythm has put a bit more retroness into it.

Reef | Second Summer

Reef | Second Summer

Reef in Australia have given us a quick peek into the collection they sliced together for second summer (which is actually summer given the release dates – November).

Jedidiah | Charitable Trunks

Jedidiah | Charitable Trunks

Cisco Clean | Rhythm

Cisco Clean | Rhythm

Rhythm, as part of their summer program, have broken their range up into collections. We got ’em to share with you, and here’s the first one. It’s the cisco clean collection and it’s stripey and blockey and has a guy holding a bike with no front wheel.

Lightning Bolt | Summer ’11

Lightning Bolt | Summer ’11

At least it’s not a Cult relaunch right? I’ve tried to write off the relaunch of Lightning Bolt in my mind. ‘Why bother relaunching an old brand, let it die in peace’, etc, etc. But I have to be honest. I’m really digging some of the pieces in their summer collection and the overall vibe of the brand is pretty fun. All they need is a couple of ‘legit’ surfers on the team and people could be loving it again, I think anyway… Maybe it’s just good photography.

Blue Tomato. Red Box.

Blue Tomato. Red Box.

Bet that title got your interest huh? Blue Tomato is an retailer from Austria. Red Box is Quiksilver. Together, they bring you a pair of leather trunks to surf in. Well, trunks that look like they’re leather…

Public Label | The Hundreds

Public Label | The Hundreds

I’m normally a little reserved about throwing a post about The Hundreds, they do some of the most amazing collaborations I’ve seen but their regular run of product always leaves me a little… meh. But, apparently I’ve had my head up my ass for a while (some would say forever) and only have just stumbled across TH’s Public Label.

Aloha Apparel

Aloha Apparel

In an interesting move, we have another brand that has a big history in surfing making another go of it in the apparel sector. You remember Aloha? You’d have to. Davo, Hog and Dooma from the late 90’s, Mark Mathews and Richie Lovett in the early ’00’s all represented Aloha either for surfboards or apparel at some stage. Not that they disappeared entirely, but Aloha are back with a new apparel range for Hi Summer this year.

VZ | Summer ’11

VZ | Summer ’11

Here’s a little peek into what VZ have coming out later this year for summer (which will no doubt drop into stores in the middle of winter – go figure) At the moment we’ve only got tee’s and walkies/trunks to show you, more to come later closer to release date.
