Well we just had a look at Dane’s new brand of clothing Former – our first thought is it looks like a cross-up between SRH and Metal Mulisha. Good luck Daner!
SAD DANE – ALMOST HAPPY DANE
Surfing magazine has officially shut down their print publication and their big brother Surfer magazine is now down to 8 issues a year (down 2 issues a year from last year and 4 from the previous years).
“We’re sorry, but Surfing is unavailable because it has ceased publication of a print edition.” – Magazine Agent
Dane Reynolds is now under the HATE HATE HATE LLC as of May 04 2016 through his attorney Justin Pinney located in San Diego.
Yes, your logo is showing
What is a LLC and what does this mean for Dane? In short an LLC means if someone was to sue Dane’s new clothing line “Former” then that person can only go after assets at Former and not any of Danes money or assets (home, car, beer).
So their you have it folks Dane is the proud owner of a new brand – we wish you all the best!
Now a song Dane can relate to by Mr. Marilyn Manson
For over 30 years Surfing and Surfer magazine had been at 12 issues a year and now their down to 10 issues a year.
Dam you digital!
… but then again Surfer and Surfing are both owned by the same company so I guess you can say he pissed on the parents as well!
“If you are a longboarder — do not support @surfingmagazine // since I was grommet these guys have consistently held up the standard started by Larry Moore — that longboarding was not a legitamite form of wave riding and didn’t belong in the pages of their mag! They still hold that standard today and have told my boss @vans this on a many of occasions! Funny part is I blasted them via @sunnygarcia and now they are trying to back pedal!!!! – if you think I’m kidding ….. Ask yourself one question … When was the last time you saw a pic of a longboarder in surfing ???? Art via @porous_walker” – Joel Tudor
Here we go again
“Oaktree is rumoured to be exploring a merger of Billabong and Quiksilver. Oaktree owns about 90 per cent of Quiksilver after a $US600 million ($A850 million) refinancing in February, when the retailer’s North American operations emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.” – SMH
“PacSun’s stock has collapsed, being down roughly 90% from its 2015 high, and its status as a penny stock has it under a delisting notice. Sadly, Pacific Sunwear’s financial condition has many of the hallmarks of an approaching bankruptcy.” – John Ogg/247 Wall Street
This morning we we’re with Kelly Slater’s best friend (surfing 8ft Swamis) and we asked if this would be Kelly’s last year on tour.
“Yeah, and with Mick and Owen out he could win it.” – BFF
Kelly Slater running away from the tour!
We just got off the phone with our good buddy Peter Taras and he has confirmed he is no longer the photo editor at Surfing Magazine, but Jimmy Wilson (former assistant photo editor) is taking over. Peter will now oversea all website and social media aspects for their website.
Jimmy gave Peter a nice farewell package – Peter landing this months cover shot of Kolohe Andino surfing on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The 50ft American flag provided by the Ten group.
Hey wait a minute Mr. Taras – did you get the whole “flag” idea from our shoot with Scotty Stopnik?
