the CRAFT ft Dwayne Paenga. Dwayne alone is one of the main reasons why Runamuk Visuals ever began. If you appreciate surfing in all its forms, you may dig this. Shot way back in the late 90′s, early 2000′s.

LAURIE TOWNER DOES NOT HAVE A SPONSOR. Amongst all the things that amaze me with this situation it’s proof that there is people within the Surf Industry making some very poor decisions, and no, that isn’t a stab at Billabong, I get it, crew had to go, but sitting here on the outside looking back into a familiar old window it looks to me like the surf industry is more focused on the image, the hype, the look, the trends, how a fucking t-shirt looks on a dude than what someone does with a surfboard under their feet and that is fucking sad, real sad. A mate of mine summed it up in an online rant the other day.
“Surf shops are so lame these days. Kind of explains the situation they are in. Get a hardware act and start selling shit that surfers actually need.”
Someone at one of the big brands needs to step up, tell that trendy dickbag in that long winded meeting to shut their lips and start backing surfers for how they surf. Then its up to you in the marketing departments to build campaigns etc around your surfers, not the other way around. Someone needs to invest some time into who Laurie is, what he stands for, what he loves and your brand will shine on through the hard times. Why? Because Laurie Towner is a surfer, one of the very best on the planet, and he is the most genuine, big hearted hellman I know.
Just play the fucking video and give the bloke a contract. The rest is history.

// CALL OUT //
We have a handful of fashion based projects in the works for both our label and some other brands that we are building campaigns with. We are looking for both female and male models of all ages, shapes and sizes. When we say ”models”, we essentially need some rad characters. You do not need to be catwalk thin or a chiseled poster dude. You don’t even need any experience. What we need is crew that bring the good times, that fit our brand, that know our brand and want to be a part of Runamuk Visuals as we begin to step it up. We have one upcoming shoot in particular and we are on the search for the below:
- A rad grandma/grandpa, and I mean bad ass. They can be cute as a button, but they need to be able to turn it on for the camera.
- A skater. You do not need to be able to blast out runs or be a vert animal. You will need to be able to ‘fang’, as in stylin’, high speed lines through the streets. The hook is, you need to have long hair… and be willing to shave it all off… Zero blade.
- I hate the term, but yes, we need a ‘Milf’. You dont need to be naughty, but you’re gonna have to act a bit naughty.
- A band. Metal, grunge, punk.
We also have a shoot this coming Wednesday the 2nd April on the Sunshine Coast. It’s for a new label, that first and foremost is an amazing concept, but their gear is spot on. Looking for a girl and guy ASAP.
If you think you fit or are at all interested contact us with a few words, and some examples of who you are and what you bring to the table.
NB: Dickbags, trashbags and douchebags need not apply.
