End of an Era - We've Moved

The Critical Slide Society started back in 2009 right here on this blog. The blog was designed to be a forum for an alternative space within surf. This alternative space has grown significantly over the last 6 years and we're stoked to be part of that. We remain 100% owned by the original founders of the business, we operate as a small team out of Sydney, Australia and we're all madly passionate about what we do. All news on TCSS and this world of surf in which we live can now be found on our new website and within the blog section. Thanks for all your support, comments and contributions. Jim & Sam

Switchfoot the 3rd

Quite appropriate that this will be one of the last posts on The Critical Slide Society Blog. This week we'll be moving across to an all in one website which will house events, content etc. The original Switchfoot book was a great source of inspiration for the founders, so we're excited to invite you along to the launch of the 3rd Switchfoot on 26 November at Wild Things gallery. 
Just RSVP to

TCSS x Desillusion Now In!

Since we are made to believe that all is poetic, aloha, and fantastical. Since our armed forces claim peace, whilst walking with bloody guns. Let’s surf our last waves before we die on the shore, under the black sun of irrationality. As futile as the world can be, we surf under the hypnosis of past illusions. 

TCSS proudly presents an exclusive collaboration with Desillusion. The Soleil Noir capsule collection. Featuring The Death Of Cool surfing jacket, long sleeve t-shirt and limited edition board shorts. Shop it below.

TCSS brings you 'Apocalypse in Paradise'

A step outside the busy realm of civilisation and into barren streets and ocean.

Ahh.. Sundrenched and un-inhibited freedom is what we seek. Nothing but the clothes on your back and a laden camper, filled with your favourite brew and choice quiver.

Let’s hit the road, we’re on our way to the Apocalypse.

With Kai Ellice-Flint and Eden Saul

Shot and Edited by Masses Collective and Matt Dempsey

Original Soundtrack by Rick Snowden
