We joined forces with our favourite bearded buddy in Dion Agius and Epokhe last night at El Topo to throw some liquor down our throats and try sunglasses on at night, couldn’t see shit. Party was good, Life Without Andy captured the craziness and I think everyone’s internal worlds will be hurting today. Coffee, stat….

TEAM AVERAGE 3.0 FILM
For this year’s Team Average adventure we put Stephanie Gilmore, Andrew Allen, Craig Anderson, Dion Agius and Dylan Rieder on a plane and sent them to the island country of Sri Lanka. There they surfed and skated and rode through the verdant hills in a bus helmed by a lunatic.
LENS: DYLAN GORDON
We found this sandy, 4×4-only road and took it pretty deep so that no one could find us and we could just camp for free. Smart idea in a two-wheel-drive van loaded down with dumb toys. We made dinner and passed out early so we could hit it hard in the morning. It was a starry night; there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.

Behind the shot: Andrew Allen – Bulls on parade
We’d spent the afternoon boozing at Whisky Point. A surf break more famed for its right hander, but the waves had gone to absolute shit. On the plus side, beverages were rapidly flowing at this weird little beach bar which was pumping out Rastafarian electro.

Issue 44 Team Average 3.0 Launch – Sydney
As if the neighbours weren’t already upset with the fact that we had moved in across the road, we had to really press the issue by throwing a big fuck off party for the launch of Issue 44, the Team Average 3.0 issue with a savvy crowd of babes and dudes sprawling onto the road.
MOVING UNITS: ETNIES IN MEXICO
I’m realizing this trip began over the idea of going cliff jumping and sparking a giant fire on the beach to get some cool photos. Randomly a few weeks later, I am on a plane to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with Etnies team riders Ryan Sheckler, David Reyes, Aidan Campbell and Julian Davidson.
Gonz gets into trouble with the French authorities and the usual suspects do their thing. Rieder, Dill, Herman etc. Enjoy.
