Yes, it’s trunk season once again for those south of the equatorial belt (or, still trunk season for those anywhere near it). Fresh from factory floors, new lines make their way online and onto front-facing clothes hangers in store. Fashion, function, ten way stretch, whatever angle is trending this year – you’ll cop a feed full of it over the coming months as we hurtle towards December 25th. 

We’re not opposed to this time of year. Less restrictive surfing trumps its alternative any day of the week. Also with the bump in marketing activities comes the release of fresh content for us to sink our millennial teeth into. Budgets to send our favourite surfers to the world’s best locations – thank you, boardshort campaign reels.

And now for a neat little bundle of aspirational content. SurfStitch, having multi-brand perks, are able to handpick their cast. One from each brand. Then stick them on a boat in the tropics to look fabulous in their product. So they put the call out for Torren Martyn, Asher Pacey, Shaun Manners, Jamie Krups and Jay Button to board a vessel for ten days in the Mentawai Islands. 

Conditions however, never quite exceeded user friendly grading. Think this mixed bag of multi-craft bros had a problem with that? Absolutely not. What they lacked in scroll-stopping clips however, they made up for by forging an impressive cache of wizard sticks, crafted from the finest beverage containing aluminium. Dive in, be inspired!

If you happen to be in the market for a new pair, take a look at their latest range here.
