Faced with the burden of selecting eyeglasses, most men simply take the
easy way out and get the most unobtrusive pair they can find. However,
there's an art and science to selecting frames that are perfectly suited
to your style and actually enhance the way you look. Here's how to do
Really good surfing in the oldest world of Portugal with Mitch Coleborn, Soli Bailey, Mitch Crews and Dusty Payne. Vinho Verde is actually white wine.
But the bottle in green and the taste is terrific. And in Portugal, you
can drink with any and every meal you choose. It accents buttery white
fish perfectly. Post surf in Portugal, few things sound better. And as
you’ll see here in this new short starring Mitch, Soli, Crewsy and
Dusty, Portugal is plentiful in waves. Rocks and coves litter the coast
with setups. And before a recent contest, these four wandered around to
rip in a place that I can’t rave about enough — mostly because I don’t
want any of you to know how good it is. But after watching this, the cat
might be out of the bag.—Travis

Sainsbury's OFFICIAL Christmas Advert 2016 || The Greatest Gift
The Greatest Gift is Sainsbury’s official Christmas advert for 2016.
It's a Christmas musical created in stop frame animation featuring
vocals by James Corden. It tells the story of Dave, a hard-working and
devoted Dad, who realises that the greatest gift he can give people this
Christmas is his time.
He was almost a hockey player. “I played a lot of ice hockey growing up
actually. Then my brother and I got skateboards for Christmas one year
and that was that.” Mere inches from a totally different existence. “One
of my best friends growing up was just drafted by the Detroit Red Wings
actually, so he’s pretty dialed.” But instead of another Red Wing we got the kind of professional skateboarder who’s often hailed as
the hands-down favorite of his peers: A lethal combination of style,
technical prowess and the most precise bit of fuck-it, all baked in to
produce what has become the new elite in modern skateboarding.
China is a vast country with a seemingly endless variety of landscapes.
From the modern skylines of Shanghai and Hong Kong to the ancient city
walls of Xi'an, the former capital of the 'Middle Kingdom'. Imposing
rice terraces contrast with stark desert scenery, massive coal factories
rub shoulders with newly built cities.

Is it possible to call a surfboard, or a shaper, the best in the world?
There’s no way to answer either of these questions definitively… But, we
can get damn close. How? By commissioning 13 of the world’s best
shapers to deliver their top line, high performance boards (sans any
recognisable logos), and having one of the world’s best high performance
surfers test-drive them. The catch? Neither shapers nor surfer knew the
others’ identity. No logos, no brand association, no preconceived
notions: Just one of the world’s best surfers and a pile of nameless
magic. Is it a flawed concept? Absolutely. But, it is the least
subjective platform we’ve got.

There are (sub)cultures where all that matters is where you come from,
what you do and what your status is. With skateboarding all of that
falls away--your social class, your job, the part of town you're
from--the only thing that matters is if you have enough lust for life
and skateboarding to get back up and try and ride those stairs again for
the 18th time.
I guess that's the thing that connects us,
skateboarders--lust for...well, life. These are the people that we maybe
met years ago at a skate competition, haven't seen in ages and yet they
feel like old friends when we reunite for a session after years (and
countries) away. These are the people that continue to throw us out of
the nest to keep us on our toes and alive but at the same time help us
grow and expand in dimensions we never thought we could.
skate, to connect, to pick each other up when things get tough but at
the same time take everything with a grain of salt and a smile on our
faces, that's what this is all about.

diving board, pausing before he performs a perfect swan dive into the
