The Drag Xmas Party at URBNSURF Looked Like a Time

Chippa, Noa, Creed and co. take a hit of chlorine.

Here’s some good clean holiday fun.

Team Drag managed to combine their annual Xmas party with some sort of URBNSURF promotional day and look to have had more fun at the pool than all previous visitors combined. As usual, the south coast soft empire have managed to capture the absurdity of surfing (beeping wristband’s are always going to be bizarre in a surfing context) whilst showcasing just how incredible their team of brickies, fireys, scaffolders (and Haz, Creed, Noz etc) are on a variety of crafts. As an aside, it’s worth noting that Creed and Noa raved about how fun the pool was when they returned north.

Some words from the brass at Drag:

Based on actual events: In 2020, employees at a Soft-Logistics company Christmas party became intoxicated and passed out. They awoke to find themselves trapped in a computer simulation that some say is a glimpse into the very future of surfing as we know it. 

Computer-generated HP trad-orcs with bionic leg pump and arm swipe capabilities traverse the dystopian marine park on an endless loop. Thrusting. Pumping. Swiping. 

Cyber-bots patrol all perimeters and flying machines enforce strict assimilation to an algorithmically generated surfing monoculture. The Starring: Tom Rigby, Chippa Wilson, Noa Deane, Henry Hewish, Creed Mctaggert, Harry Bryant, Jordan Putland, Thomas Robinson, Kurt Lovegrove, James Kates. All missing persons have not been seen since.
