Stab Recommends: Five Things For Fun Boys
There’s a comic underground not taking things too seriously, rumbling in surfing’s nether regions.
We’re all for laughs, and one of our favourite proprietors of surfing’s disinterested rib-ticklings is Fun Boys (Mixed Business), who have a new film about to drop, and also make great pants for doing not much in. As well as the first time track pants have ever been recommended on Stab, here’s a book documenting an incredible period in Irish surfing, a pair of potentially hideous boardshorts, and more. Dive in.
Fun Boy Lounge Pants
If you’re not a Fun Boys fan then you’re clearly too humourless to get it. We’d recommend these throwback dacks for surf checks, coffee and couch time, not past lunch. But each to their own.
A Remarkable Capsule Of Time
Legendary enigmatic filmmaker/photographer/muso Mickey Smith has compiled ten years of pioneering the Irish Coast into a photo book. One of surfing’s most interesting documenters and his ongoing muse.
The Luxury Of A Second Pair
Having two pairs of quality shades to alternate is one of life’s great luxuries. If you’re after some contrast, go clear and square. The Kino’s from Epokhe are the perfect second pair.
Urban Camo Trunks
Are these hideous, or deftly awesome? We’re going to err on the side of Carhartt here and proclaim Ali G urban camo-style awesomeness. After all, expressing one’s self in boardshorts is to be encouraged.
An Uplifting Insta Handle
It’s a simple formula: nice portrait, interesting quote, but when it’s administered daily, it’s remarkably thought provoking. A rare case of healthy digital stimulation.
