Since our highschool days we’ve been massive fans of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem but it was yesterday when my little man and I were watching the Muppets that dreams came true! Zoot! repping one of our Barnacle hats! A man of few words, but we found out he was wearing this hat when he wrote and performed “Barnyard Boogie” and since that day it’s never left his head. // The barnacle hat is currently out of stock but the RV store is holding a heap of new stuff.

You hear old folk carrying on about the youth of today, about the new throw away society, about their lack of respect, about being lazy… I’m calling these old kooks out, ’cause for the most part I think the youth of today are rad. They are thinkers, they are do’ers and if the young crew I have dealt with lately are anything to go by, these kids are both.
I got an email from a mate awhile back, attached was a link, I clicked it and a short video played. It was focused around a cute young girl as she went about her daily deal, but the reason for the email was she was wearing one of our tees and in part I was kinda stoked, stoked to see that when a young kid goes out to make something cool our gear gets chucked in the mix… But what really got me was the credits; Filmed and Edited by Matisse Victoria Langbein, a 15 year old Highschool kid. Unlike many of the Insta-famous kids out there, I think Matisse is radder than she realizes, radder ’cause she’s just doing it.
We sent Matisse an RV love pack and this is what she created… This is why she’s rad.
This little sponsor tape for a local kid, Nat Nixon is not to shabby either.
Big props to all the kids out their having a dig, especially kids like Matisse, Juliet, Nixon and Michaela, get out and make some cool shit while you’re young and Mum and Dad are paying the bills!
It’s been awhile since having any spare time, or for that matter, any time to care about surf things at all. But this, Scrap Book Issue #1, by Mike Mallalieu is neat, short and tidy. I watched it and it made me wanna go surf, it’s a pity my brain and office is full of the deadlines of corporate hell.
Noa Deane’s surfing rules.
