Must Watch: Chippa, Jaleesa, And The Drag Brethren In ‘Reptilian Vapeshifters’
Possibly the best single flaccid craft edit we’ve ever witnessed.
A Drag apostle, who’d like to remain anonymous, told us he was dropping a clip at the end of the week. He told me it was ‘good’, but considering he says that about everything they release, we weren’t expecting something as astonishing as this.
It’s called ‘Reptilian Vapeshifters’. A short investigation into the shape and craft-shifting folk who are addicted to the flaccid ways of Drag.
Chippa Wilson, Jaleesa Vincent, Sean Mawson, Chay ‘The Kneelo’ Noin, Dan Johnson, James Kates, The Soft Lord a mysterious bowl-cut adorned goofy footer, and the remainder of the Drag addicts, all feature in the expose.
We reckon it’s the single best surfing we’ve seen on a softy since Tom Morey invented the esky lid, but Maddog just thinks we’re tripping because the clips condensed compared to their usual full-length onslaughts.
It’s fucking mind boggling. So much so that we’ve all cracked a tin in the office to watch it one more time.
Chippa blowing tail on the 4’10” Drummy, Jaleesa longbooging on the Zoltan with webbed gloves, Dan Johnson going skitzy on the Draggit, and Katesy with some good ol’ high performance dragging. It even features the mysterious Tahitian Alvin who’s rumoured to be a long lost offspring of prone legend Michael Eppelstun
You know what, it genuinely got us all psyched on surfing. And that’s a real feat for a bunch of blokes that sit around drowning in surf-related content all day.
Just scroll back up and watch it already.
