Give a bunch of artists blank skate decks, tell them to bring back monsters and you'll get one creeptastic collection of cruisers. And then, if you're anything like us, you'll throw an art show with all the monstorously cool skate decks. And that's exactly what we did: last Thursday bats, witches, skeletons, ghouls and even some human bone adorned the walls of 225 Forest in Laguna — and. it. was. epic. Click the play button to check out the creepishly awesome night.
Waves For Water started in 2009 after the tsunami disaster in Indonesia. Aiming to bring clean drinking water to every single person who needs it, Jon Rose and team have distributed over 100,000 live-saving filters across the globe. It's easy to forget that one in six people do not have access to clean water - including the people in our own backyard. W4W’s first mission on American turf takes place smack dab in the middle of the United States, on the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota. Learn more about the Lakota People and the work Jon, Waves For Water and H2O are doing to help our friends in the U.S. here.
Jason Maloney and Evan "Stink" Rossell were busy this week painting the town red… and every other color imaginable. The back half of Wahoo's in Costa Mesa is now home to elephants, bats and other creatures. You can see the beaut for yourself (it's pretty hard to miss) on the corner of 19th & Placentia, or just by watching this video.
Also... big thanks to Wahoo's for offering up their walls as a canvas.
Hurley Rocks You Back to School is coming to a close this weekend, and we're getting a little nostalgic. Here's a look back at our second stop of the tour in Norfolk, VA, where Mike and Rosie get a little crazy (look out for Rosie's dance moves and Mike's body slam into a wall). We have one last show in Orange County, so if you missed out on the other stops, make sure you come see us this Saturday.
We're always discovering fun facts about the people we work with. Take Jennie from our art department for instance, she's in an awesome girl-punk band (she's got some serious pipes) called Bad Cop Bad Cop. The ruling: Bad Cop Bad Cop is totally badass. Press play, try not fall in love.
Look at those crazy kids! Rosie and Mike, along with Surferblood were at it again, rocking you back to school - this time in Austin, Texas. Press play to see Surferblood, with the help of local band Shivery Shakes, boot scoot boogie and two step right into the heart of Austin, Texas. The last Hurley Rocks You Back to School show is this Saturday in Santa Ana, California. Join us?
You could say Dear Suburbia was more or less born in Australia, afterall that's where the mad-surf-movie-genius, Kai Neville, hails form. So after getting its fill of the empty highway and gas station food during its American premiere tour, it was time Dear Suburbia went home. And like their won't to do, our Australian friends threw quite the shindig for its homecoming. Press play to see all the pretty people who came out to beckon it home. And head to Life Without Andy to for all the photos from the night.
Here's one more banger from I Am The Avalanche, performed right here in the Hurley music studio.
They come from a place with no traffic lights (hence their disbelief at LA traffic on their way to the Hurley music studio), they surf — well, and they're badass. Here Byron Bay, metalcore group Parkway Drive talk vacation plans, broken legs and music.
When Max McDonald isn't swinging a hammer and creating our latest display or lightbox here at HQ, he's putting his vocal chords (and impressive beard) to good work in his one-man show, Gentlemen. Watch the video for "No Awakening" performed and recorded here at Hurley.
