Twenty Six

Here's what the boys at movement had to say about their latest issue.

The quickest and easiest way to claim superiority over your fellow man is through the art of competition. Kick his arse and you shall be the better person, yet for years bodyboarding struggled with the fact that the best weren't competing and even when they did we struggled with the idea of whether flapping around in waist high slop would help us understand anything. So this issue we took the red felt tipped biro to the IBA'sWorld Tour. It's now awash with Australian Dollars, Euros and Brazilian Real - all of it legal mind you - and is a competitive, commercial and, eventually, a marketable success. Of course, things are never quite that easy so you best read the unedited version written through the men toiling behind the scenes. Issue 26 also plays host to one of the hottest lady spreads you will ever see in a surfing magazine. I know, if you wanted porn you'd pay for it, but this is perfectly legit because that spread is in fact a vehicle for our summer clothing guide. Genius! There are surfing trips to Bali and South Australia, run concurrently through the one spread because we were short of time and ideas. And finally, and most of all leastly, there's that scurrilous man from Port Macquarie, Damian King, back between these pages and back mouthing off. Brilliant! On sale @ Bodyboardshop now.

Employee of the month

Eppo's Bodyboardshop team rider Michael Novy has just recently returned from a month long stint in WA chasing swells. He reports some good days around the Margaret River area and also at some undisclosed locations. The boys from Claws & Teeth were on hand to document all the action for their upcoming release Pastiche. Apparently a trip to WA isn't cheap so Novy will be maning Eppo's Bodyboardshop Mooloolaba this Friday (31st) to try and line his wallet for the next mission.

Joker in the pack

Bodyboardshop Team rider & 2X World champion, Damian King has just announced premiere dates for his 2nd movie release, The Joker 2. It's been 4 years since the release of The Joker, Kingy has been flying under the radar for the majorityof that time, doing his own thing gathering footage on a bunch of sneaky wave hunting missions. Now he's ready to show everyone just how successful those missions were! Kingy says he's super excited for people to see the movie, "It’s completely different to the first one, but very similar in a lot of ways as well".

The Sunshine Coast premiere details are still being finalized, but stay tuned!
Here's just some of the lunacy you can expect from The Joker II

Feel the solace!

Some friends of Bodyboardshop's run a couple rad little surf stores on the Sunshine Coast called Solace. Now, I know what you're thinking shop - Bright lights, Bright colours, pumping top 40 music that makes your ears bleed, pretty girls behind the counter who have no idea what they're talking about. I can assure you Solace is a different kettle of fish, focusing more on the soul side of surfing with a heavy emphasis on stocking amazing art & photography + great limited edition clothing lines and surf boards.
The stores are located in Mooloolaba & Noosaville. They've also just recently jumped aboard the blog train so check out the blog here and their website here.

Eppo's team rider Drew Innocend has scored himself a full feature in the latest issue of Contrast Mag. Drew's been surfing really, really well over the last 6-8 months and it shows, with a bag full of great shots taken by sunshine coast photog Ben Lee.

The above shot didn't quite make the cut for the profile. Thanks to Ben for the pic!
