Happy Friday, or Saturday, depending on where you’re currently staring at your cellular device.

Speaking of which, would you like to have that device make noise instead of just emitting that addicting glow? Good news. We’ve got a new episode of Stab’s The Drop podcast, hosted by Danny Johnson, for you.

Let’s explore this week’s findings:

Surf News
The roster for the CT event at Kelly’s Surf Ranch saw some drastic changes this week. Jordy Smith, Julian Wilson, Macy Callaghan, and few others have announced they will not be riding Lemoore’s mechanical bull come June 18th. Check here to find out which surfers will be taking their spots.

The Electric Acid Surfboard Test Starring Mason and Coco Ho
Ahhh, finally, the latest edition of Stab’s mind-melting alternative design project is here. Episode 1 of the E.A.S.T. with Mason and Coco Ho aired last night, and we called up the man with the golden voice and obscure surf knowledge, Ashton Goggans, to find out how a film like this comes to life. He answers questions like:

  • What inspired the creation of EAST?
  • How do you select the shapers for this project?
  • Why Mason and Coco?

We don’t bite, we even wrote a love letter to prove it. Click here to listen to the pod.
