Ozzie Wright And Kobi Clements In "The Theatre Is A Cold Dark Place"

In honour of winter, we've curated an untraditional, highly-serious shoot to aid your yearly purchase. Because a piece of thoughtfully composed rubber is critical to your cold water experience. Plus, we like to show them off. We took a few surfers and shot them anywhere but the ocean (we did go for a surf afterwards; we're not that cruel!). Here is Ozzie Wright in his Volcom Classic Rubber 3/2 and Kobi Clements in his Vol.1 Jersey indulging in the cinema and a sugar rush.

“Kobi’s drinking three litres of iced Slurpee and he’s freezing," says Ozzie. "So it’s lucky he did wear his wetsuit tonight. I didn’t even get a popcorn rash, and I had the jumbo size. This wetsuit’s incredible.”
