How much watching time do you have this weekend?

The average person spends between 2-3 hours per day on social media and television. That “quick scroll” before bed so easily slips into 3-day binge in the dragon kingdom of Westeros. Curse you, TikTok. 

However, dissociating with reality for extended periods of time can make you feel like shit — who would have guessed? So, you must pick your poison carefully and consume media that prompts more surfs than sofa sabbaticals. This week, we have an abundance of amusing releases, so grab your vegan pot stickers and let’s leap into a dazzling blue rabbit hole.

Episode 2 of the Vans Pipe Masters Invite Show

The 2022 Vans Pipe Masters is quite unique. There’s an equal emphasis on airs and barrels, no priority, and more format changes you can read about here

In Episode 2 of the Vans Pipe Masters Invite Show, our hosts, Keala Kennely, Nathan Fletcher, and Makua Rothman, reveal the 17 Hawaiins, 8 CT surfers, 8 Blow-Ins, 6 Misfits, and hand-draw the official Heat 1 of the Vans Pipe Masters. 

A fine way to commence your binge.

Re-watch Ep 1 for extra credit.

Rolstie’s Stab Edit Of The Year Entry

A 10-foot hammerhead came at a local Puerto Rican surfer a couple of years ago, and his friends captured the whole incident on film. Rolo’s mild manners juxtapose his ballistic tendencies in the water. If you hate mid-lengths and love acoustic guitars, you will adore this one. 

PS: The edit is now unlocked and is free for you viewing pleasure.

Mount Everest Ain’t Got Shit On Sebastian Williams

Sebastian Willaim’s ‘Euforia’ is a hypnotizing, 100% Mexican-made film. The surfing sizzles, and the cinematogrophy is worthy of the film’s title.
