Drew, Sammy and Alex ripping in a clip by young film enthusiast Brodie Miatke.
The photographer behind the Summerset advert is a talented lad by the name of Conan Whitehouse. You can find more of his work and some outright gorgeous girls posing for his camera at www.conanwhitehouse.blogspot.com. Word to the wise, don’t let your other half catch you with your tongue hanging out.
Check out Movement Magazine’s expose’ on Mike Stewart’s latest prodigy and Summerset rider Drew Innocend. The article probes Drew on idols, girls, his disdain for Unit, the mentor he has in Mike and the easy going attitude Drew takes towards riding the foam. Well done to both Drew and Ryan Jones on the piece!
Although no surf prevailed for the SCBC (sunshine coast bodyboard club) breakup the lads still managed to cool off with some old fashioned, muscle tenderizing run-outs in the shorey. There was a strong team-Inverted presence and I’m sure that the Inverted team is looking forward to this Wednesday’s Christmas Party go-karting.
Somewhere along the way things went horribly wrong. For a number of years, uber-art, religion, monk music, same locales and an overt emphasis on crossed legs have permeated the vid scene. Glad to see Chris White is back in the game and making fun, enjoyable amp flicks the way bodyboarding should be portrayed.
The latest installment of riptide is insane! It’s an all out assault on your senses with the usual epic shots and amusing articles with some added bonuses including free stickers, posters and a tripped-out 3D feature which leaves you yearning for more. Pick it up from your newsagent for the tidy sum of $9.99, now!
Keep an eye out for some eye-catching posters wherever you can find the SUMMERSET Summer 2010 range. We will endeavor to get some wallpapers uploaded for you shortly. Peace.

Put aside you differences and marvel at some of of the big salt our counterparts are throwing themselves into these at the mid-way point to the XXL awards. So hold your breath and check out mammoth Cloudbreak, Holy f$#%!
On a similar theme to yesterday I was recently gifted a bunch of Riptide’s circa the early 90′s. Sporting iridescent technicolor the 90′s were renowned for, these glossy pages have provided a retrospective insight into forgotten moments, classic pictures and characters that have warranted the sports attention in one way or another. The time-capsule in print can be found at the Inverted Sunshine Coast store (hopefully not relegated to backroom toilet reading just yet!). So get in there and check out notable magazine sections “Last Splash”, the “Hot or Not barometer” and generally anything documenting Eppo!
Below is the infamous “Rip the Pit” video nasty featuring the young “skid kids” which caused quite a stir in its day. Surely enough time has passed to finally see the funny side of it all?
