Sanding The Laps

Sage Joske sanding fellow critical slider Brett Caller's new log. I hear it's already in Brett's hands & beneath his feet. Reckon he'd be a happy man. Had the opportunity to check out Sage's recent work; he is killing it.

onwards & upwards....

It's a bit of an historic week at The Critical Slide Society... our team of dedicated agents have brought in final orders from across the country so that you can look forward to sliding in some fine trunks this Xmas (or next March for our Northern bros.) Plus our very first product has hit the shops... well shop actually.

Yelo in WA (ph: 08 9447 9441) has received the first delivery of our canvas board bags designed to keep your fish fancy. The Fish Finger & Jelly Tip models above are soon to be followed by 2 other styles. Lengths available: 5"10" 6'2" 6'6" & 6'10"

ok, so this is kinda late but here are some more shots of the fibreglass on display at this year's Fish Fry Japan. Some prettier than others, some more experimental than others... something for everyone then.

the verve

from Sage Joske...." these pics are of a local secret spot that gets really good each winter. I'm riding a high performance twin keel fish, which I call the Verve and it feels right at home when the waves get bigger."

Who is Kameron Brown?

Who is that guy anyways?.........Oh, that's me! Kameron Brown from Dana Point, California. I am the first CA rider for TCSS and very proud to be. This is my first blog entry and I wanted to say how freakin stoaked I am to be apart of this The Critical Slide Society. People love the brand already over here and I think it's going to become very popular. The clothing speaks for itself with the creative artists and rad designs TCSS has. I also ride for Icons of Surf where they sell the line.

Well, I recently had Tom Wegeners assitant, MATT WILLIAMS stay with me while he indoctrinated me into the LA LA Society. We spent some time up in LA with John Wegener shapin n scrapin wood until we came up with these little wooden planks that remind me of my old longboard skateboards. They told me you could actually surf these things and until I actually tried, I thought they were slightly crazy. Now, After my first ride..... I'm hooked!

It took us about 3 hours to shape and finish up the details. This one we shaped is a 6'2" "Peanut". Works really well for the waves we have out in SoCal. When I traveled to Australia in March, I went to Tom Wegeners abode and carved out my very first Alaia.... a 6'6" "Rasta Performer". That one seems to work well at the points in Noosa and works very well at Malibu and other points here in Cali. They may not be the best paddlers but once your up, your FLYIN! I hope everyone in the future gets a chance to have that feeling the Alaia gives you wether it be getting slotted or slipping down the wave with the controlled slide, The LA LA.

Thanks for reading and i'll be back soon for more of what's going on over here in the states. :)
