How did your decade start?

We decided to start the 2020s from the ground up. Torch it all and start again. Mightn’t have been the most stress-free way to do it, but it seemed fitting considering the present apocalyptic climate. But it’s not all bad news. Quite. As promised, we’re giving away the (still floating) vessels piloted by Queen Stephanie Gilmore in our last Electric Acid Surfboard test. Starting, well, now.

It’s fun going through entries for a competition where people have to drop their digital facade and try and come up with an elegant sentence. It’s life-affirming for those among us who pen words for a living (practice sure makes for better sentence constructions) but there were certainly a few among the thousands who managed to assemble nouns and verbs into something cohesive. So, without further ado, let us announce the first of our string of winners.

Ella Kate Thrupp, come on down and claim your Joel Fitz craft.

(And by “come on down” we mean we’ll email you).

The next aquatic cab off the rank will be a divine marbled peach twinnie shaped by Alex Crews of ACSOD fame. Watch this space.
