If you've paid a visit to our library at Maison Desillusion you may be familiar with Primitive Skills already.

Their magazine acts as an independent study into the rituals, symbols, habits and habitats of surfers. Misuse of funds, distaste for authority, anti-social behaviour, freedom of thought and other undesirable side effects of salt water to the brain.

Rangi Ormond and Jack Coleman were recently in Costa Rica doing some filming. Jack cut a short film for Primitive Skills using some of the more obscure footage. Check it out above.

Forbidden Trim Trailer

Admittedly we're a bit late to the party posting this one. You may remember George Trim from our Apocalypse Now article in Tome 2 last year. Never one to takes the easy route out, his latest project has been 4 years in the making, shot entirely on film on a shoe-string budget, in between jobs and pay checks, the trailer is finally here.

As the film is nearing completion, there are still needed funds which will be used to finalize post production, mastering and mixing of the movie and soundtrack, DVD menu authoring and production, subtitle translation, festival entries, and premieres.

You can help George and his team get ever closer to completion by visiting their Kickstarter page here.


A decade in existence, The Nixon Surf Challenge has grown from a casual get-together of befriended riders into an annual trip discovering new destinations. In most recent years the Nixon Surf Challenge migrated to colder, lesser known surf spots including last year's Kamtchatka, Russia trip, which you can re-watch exclusively here

For this year’s event the crew landed in Hainan, China (May 26 - 31, 2015), the beating heart of China’s rapidly expanding surf industry. Watch the exclusive edit directed by Alex Laurel below.
