Meant to post this last week, better late than never… recap video of the 3rd annual Wheels & Waves event host by the Southsiders. Biarritz (and that whole section section of coast) is a place I’d like to visit one day soon, tying that trip in with W&W might not be such a bad idea.
Shouts out to the homie Kai at Wheelies, a boss in the kitchen and a boss with his chops. Plus we have unintentionally matching bad tattoos.
A triumph of filmmaking by Deus, head over to their site and donate an email address now to watch the full-length I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night, teased and previewed all year by the multi-continent brand. A stunning tour through Bali via longboard, skate, moto and deep stand-up barrels, props to Deus for this vision and production and to Harrison Roach and Bryce Young for the timeless shred.
In promotion of the new Poseidon sock from Stance, here’s the man/myth/legend Jason Jessee doing what he does, killing everything with style.
Longform short piece on Cycle Zombie’s Scotty Stopnik, a philosophical overview of the family’s take on skate/surf/moto culture. ‘It’s a lifestyle many try to embody but few have such a natural and honest approach to the culture and passion this brotherhood share’ – well put by Desillusion.
‘Huntington Beach, California, another day in paradise, another night to let the demons speak.
The horizon is just one black mass, and the breeze that hits us in the face is like a draught coming through the gates of hell that the devil himself has just opened. Leaning against the front of the local liquor store, Troy Elmore is but a shadow. The neon lights toy with his silhouette.

French photographer & Desillusion Magazine editor in chief, Sebastien Zanella spent an all night session walking around the city to hear the confessions of one of the most stylish longboarders of our time.’
Go Takamine is a huge inspiration for us, and for hordes of other motorcycle enthusiasts globally. From vintage HD chops like the one he’s building for BF6 to Japanese single cylinder creations, Brat Style is truly of its own. With a new shop coming stateside later this year look for the Brat Style influence to only keep growing, and rightfully so.
Desillusion Magazine presents this look at California’s Iron & Resin, a mainstay here on the site:
‘Based in the heart of Ventura, a town literally fuelled by waves and gasoline. Iron & Resin is the product of several friends, immersed in a culture of motorcycles and point breaks. A culture where man builds with his own hands and the only thing that counts is living in the moment. ’Brother of the Weird’ presents an insight into the brand with co-founder Thom Hill.
This short film is based on the article “Behind The Desk – Iron & Resin” published in Desillusion Magazine 45, Tome 1.’
