With the big CT circus in town, it’s easy to glimpse over the underlying events happening in Australia. Luckily, the host of The Drop podcast, Danny Johnson, refuses to cut corners. He looks past the mundane happenings and pulls top-quality surf stories from across the globe. With plenty of hoopla on tap in Oz, Danny didn’t have to look too far for interesting stories. Take a look at this week’s findings below:

A Stab documentary on with the founders of Rage.

Rage is one of the few core surf brands left in existence. What exactly defines a “core” brand? Employee contracts on beer coasters, traction pad reviews at the pub, and DIY pyrotechnics; that is what we consider “core”. Danny chats about the film (which he also made) and gives us a little sample of what’s inside.

The Macaulay Dynasty

Jed Smith, a talented contributor to Stab’s editorial work, hopped on the mic and discussed his latest piece on the Macaulay dynasty. There something about the psycho capabilities of the West Oz royal family he just can’t put his comprehend. The extreme weather, gut-wrenching waves, and relative isolation breed some of the most extraordinary surfers on the planet; Jed elaborates on why that is.

Mullet inspired chaos at The Prince in Newcastle

A new Mikey Wright film debuted at a popular Newcastle joint. Danny was there to entertain and interview the inebriated crowd. As one local put it, “Newy loves to fuckin party, mate.”

If you’re in Newcastle and need a good spot to grab food and drinks, The Prince of Merewether has got you covered.

Join the party here.
