Yes, this is absolutely a rave about someone's product- I have bought Axxxe suits and absolutely love them. Yeah, they're a bit more expensive but not in the long run. My first suit lasted easily twice as long as any other I've owned, and when you factor in the comfort level of a suit that is custom fitted- they're absolutely worth every penny. Total quality every step of the way here- materials, construction, service- I'll never go back to the off the rack deal. Cool to see the folks who actually made my suit and there's some decent surfing as a bonus. Mick Waters put it together- you should buy his really wonderful movie 'Little Black Wheels' if you haven't already done so. Email info @ foamandfunction.com and we'll sort one out for you. Clip was found thanks to the always great Cabinessence blog.

No disrespect to the pro tour guys, but the really crazy cutting edge stuff is happening far away from judging stands and sponsor's booths. I understand if you think Ozzie's manic antics seem a bit spider monkey on PCP at times, but check out the Indo footage at around 10mins. That is some quality wave riding there my friends.

What you have there is the new fish Kidman is building for South Australia's own Paul Whibley. The template is Andrew's take on his beloved Frye, which was basically a take on the Lis. Serious pedigree happening there, and board shows it. Paul is a classic, he's got a very tidy quiver of high quality and somewhat left field boards, so he had top notch ceramicist Gerry Wedd immortalize them on a teapot. How much cooler than an instagram page is that?

Yes, it's a movie from a clothing company but it's about Lynch who is unreservedly an inspiration and has been since before I could shave. Ignore the undoubtedly portentous and overwrought moments of narration and watch the surfing which was game changing stuff.
