Will The Real Owner Of Destroyr Or Destroyer Clothing Please Stand Up

Seems Craig Anderson who is already on board with HUF (shoe company after Keith Hufnagel) is joining Dylan Rieder and Austyn Gillette and starting a new brand called Destroyr.

“Rumors from possibly another country have floated across my desk that Craig Ando will, in fact, join Dane Reynolds in his new brand which is still just a rumor but called allegedly Destroyer.” – Chas Smith/Beach Grit

“So, what can we expect next from Craig? Stab’s guess would be that Craig will join Dane’s new brand, credible murmurs of which emerged late in November involving a clothing label and skaters Austin Gillette and Dylan Reider. Some of the best skate brands (HUF, Girl, etc) are run by pro skaters, and you’d like to think that surf brands run by surfers will resonate in the market the same way. These guys know how to engage an audience and have a clear connection with their aesthetics. With the rollercoaster surf industry the way it is, there’s every chance this new venture could slingshot to become the next big thing.” – Stab Mag

and more Destroyers already in business = headache for the newest Destroyr!

Adriano De Souza Wins 1st World Title – Mick Fanning Looses His Brother

Peter Mel speaking with Mick Fanning who had just lost his older brother

Gabriel Medina – The 6.5 that took the win and beating Mick Fanning. Many have commented that a big score for an air at a tube riding contest? Sorry, people if it was 10ft Pipe their would be no airs, but only tubes so when you don’t have priority and it’s 5ft the whole “tube riding” goes out the door. Gabriel was smart and didn’t wait for a “tube” and if he had he would’ve never advanced – very smart competitor!

You Can’t Script This – Chaos Theory

“Competitive surfing is constantly changing and evolving—from upsets to perfection, a thwarted shark attack to the most hotly contested championship race in years. We believe this unpredictability is what makes the sport so compelling and therefore made it the focus of our creative strategy.” – Scott Hargrove / Ad Week
