Greenroom Festival, Japan. 3rd Time's A Charm!

Another Greenroom done and dusted. Such an amazing couple of days meeting new people, a lot of bowing & business card exchanging. Despite the heart breaking troubles this country has had over the past 3 months, there was plenty of support for the festival and for the surf community, giving everyone a reason and opportunity to have a good time. The turnout was in excess of 12,000 people, many of the old faces weren't present, but many new ones took their place bringing with them an unfamiliar twist on surf culture.

We're stoked we came to Japan during this heartfelt time. It's amazing to see humanity come together and stay strong. We love you Japan and your people x

Remain In Balance @ Beams T

Monday night 16th of May, TCSS crew hung Steven Harrington's show and TCSS wall at Beams T, Harajuku, JP!!!!

We plugged away at it until the early hours of the morning, as everything takes that little bit extra time in Japan (translation n' what not) but sooooo well worth it! Big thanks to Beams T staff, Masahiro, Tamio and not to forget Steven Harrington. Proceeds from the show will be donated to Tsunami victims, via the Red Cross. The show is up until 6 June.


Spicoli and Bodhi rock'n Harajuku.

And now onto Greenroom....
