Piecing together an entry for Taylor Steele’s online ‘Innersection’ project can be a lengthy progress. First you’ve got to nail clips then whittle it down into a two to three minute section that showcases your blood, sweat and tears. Gold Coast grom, Thomas Woods teamed up with his brother James to produce their first Innersection entry. The duo churned out an entry that included a stop-motion intro and a handful of solid airs. Waves caught up with Thomas to find out how long it to him to create his entry, how he takes the criticism and what it would mean if he took out the major prize.............
When you’re a pubeless grom you lay down on the sand and stare upwards to clouds finding shapes relevant to your knowledge of the world such as ducks, Bart Simpons head, killer pythons as you grow older you stop looking at the clouds dreaming of shapes and find yourself staring at the ground finding shapes in spilt beer, check this beer spilt shakka.
This is a cool piece empire ave posted on Sam Macintosh the man behind Stab. I love Stab magazine, people get their knickers twisted with what they do, humbug to that I say, let it rip Stab I wana hear the dirt I wana see pics of whats going on behind the scenes. Sams an interesting cat and a cat that charges, lays rails and throws fins.
Theres a lot of terminology for describing how your mates where surfing, theres “man you where surfing like a crab”, “man you where tearing the bag”, “ man you where surfing like a nutty squirrel” but in reality did your mate look like a crab? Did you see him tearing a bag or was he being a nutty squirrel and the answer truthfully is NO but this guy from NZ is living up to the new catch phrase “Oh man you were on fire out there”
This guy was young but now he is old, he was on the team he was on the tour he was in surf mags and was in videos albeit vhs ones and now he’s a school teacher, you kiddin me a school teacher fuck me imagine a guy who can lay rail like a modern day Crammy is a school teacher. You could never step out of line in his class cause you know he did and still does surf better than you, the man the teacher Mr Luke Hitchings. Check this footage of Luke in the Mentawaiis from an old Waves mag VHS tape, I just hope his students Google his name and this pops up.
