CJ Nelson on his 10' South Coast Surfboards "Classic". from CJ Nelson on Vimeo.
This Clip was shot in during my last stay in Mexico over new years 2015. Ian Chisholm and I have been working hard on designing a range of super functional longboards released threw his label South Coast surfboards. The board I'm riding here is called the "Classic" and its the design I have been ridding for the better part of my surfing life. A true California style nose rider. We have taken our knowledge of modern surfboards and mixed it with traditional templates, volumes and materials to come up with a few of the most functional longboard designs to date. Check out to see what were up to. Clip- Justin bowers (@jbowersphoto) Music- Terraplane sun

From The Cottage

Hey Tiago,

I want to share a 'little something something' I have been working on. I teamed up with a local skateboard shaper 'Jimmy Kakanis' and created a short film about Cottage Skateboards, how it started and what it means to Jimmy to be able to create a job that incorporates all his lifestyle loves of skating and surfing here on the Gold Coast. Jimmy specialises in handcrafted and customised skateboards and has also dabbled in shaping handcrafted logs as seen in the film. Jimmy has been working on the Gold Coast, QLD Australia for the past three years.

After my last short HANDCRAFTED : Thomas Bexon I wanted to create more of a community feel showcasing the talented local artists currently living and working here on the Gold Coast. Jimmy is at the heart of this short documentary but I have made a point of using local musicians in the film. I have tracks from Sal
vadarlings and Fonz Whaler and also Josiah Birrell aka "GOVS" created the sound design for the film.

I hope you enjoy! Yew!!

Mick thank you for sharing!!!

ELEMENTAL L from Nick Jones on Vimeo.

ELEMENTAL L is an observance of Longboarding in a simple and compounded form. It highlights the ease with which modern day surfers amble to and from the nose, and celebrates the flow with which they slide from section to section. The surfing in ELEMENTAL L was shot in Noosa Heads, in ideal conditions. This film appreciates the key principles of Longboarding. By watching, the viewer may receive insight into Longboarding’s current standard and style. FUCK HIGH-PRO. - Harrison Roach

Featuring Harrison Roach, Matt Cuddihy & Zye Norris.
