Can you imagine having to walk the entire length of your drive way each morning just to read the news? 

Sounds miserable. Luckily, Danny Johnson produces weekly episodes of The Drop to make our lives easier. So simple, in fact, that you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your bed to keep up with the external surf world. And reading the news? That’s pre-historic behavior. We’re a podcast civilization now. 

Let’s catch up with this week’s happenings:


Volcom’s full-length film “Lobotomy” was released this week on Stab Premium. It’s an unapologetically entertaining production featuring Starring Noa Deane doing switch alley-oops, Ozzie Wright getting barreled with his favorite barbie doll, and much more. Ryan Thomas is considered a genius when it comes to producing surf films, and it’s fairly easy to see why.

Vans Stab High, Central America, presented by Monster Energy

Yes, we held another iteration of our precious air contest in Costa Rica, and yes, I made a keyboard shortcut for its full name. Two weeks in Central America with over 25 of the world’s best aerialists? An event of that magnitude deserves a long title. Mr. Brendan Buckley gives us the inside scoop on what our non-stop surf mission so special.

Q and A with a shark expert

This week’s guest was Professor Daryl McPhee, an expert in fisheries and marine ecology. Danny asked him some serious questions about overfishing, drum lines, and culling. Professor McPhee responded to tricky subjects with factual information and proper explanations. Plus, he debunked some of our favorite shark myths.

Does peeing your wetsuit attract sharks? Does a yellow resin tint make you an easy target? Could air-brushed stripes on the bottom of your board save your life?
