Drag Is Set To Take On The East Coast With ‘Ripped’
Chippa Wilson, Craig Anderson, Dion Agius and the Drag brotherhood star in the sequel to DRAG’s first blockbuster film.
It’s not often that a sequel stifles its predecessor, but DRAG’s follow up to their first Hollywood blockbuster is shaping up to do exactly that. If ‘R.I.P.’ was a post-apocalyptic tale covering the shortlived life of the polypropylene sword, then Ripped documents the aftermath, where ocean frolickers far and wide abandon their differences and consummate their love for sliding on foam sleds.
It might not be the hi-fidelity shredding that you’re used to on glassed 6’0″ and under thrusters, but it’s certainly the best surfing we’ve ever seen on a thick foamy twin fin – especially one known only as the ‘Drumstick’.
Chippa Wilson, Craig Anderson, Dion Agius and Creed McTaggart star alongside the Drag enigmas that are Dorf, Riggaz, the Soft Lord and their recent team addition, Zoltan Torkos. And don’t worry, there’s plenty of schooner skolling, dart munching and literal land dragging to be seen throughout the full length too. It’s as if Funniest Home Videos never died.
The name Ripped may have only been finalised on the Coal Coast late last night, but the filming has been underway for years. After battening down the hatches for two weeks straight, the editing process is complete and it’ll be screening near you sometime quite soon…
That’s right, a good old-fashioned premiere tour is taking place next week. Here are the deets:
Thursday 31st May @ The Stoke Factory, Wollongong
Friday 1st June @ a currently unknown venue in Newcastle (TBA)
Saturday 2nd June @ The Byron Bay Drag Lab AKA “Shredical Centre and Wellness Retreat”
Now, we know those venues – and probably the trailer too – don’t seem all that realistic, but we can assure you that this Brown Cardigan-like social enigma that is Drag Board Co is real and this tour will be making it’s way along the coast late next week.
Whether you like tow-out punts, prone beatings at Cyclops or just some good old fashioned kneeboarding rolls, Ripped has all of your oddest desires covered.
I guess we’ll see you there.
