Radical Times On The Gold Coast

Every November, people talk about the North Shore being the gathering place for the entire surf industry. Everybody’s there, they’ll say. It’s the mecca, they’ll add.

But folks tend to forget that in surfing, the mecca is always on the move. This time of year, it moves to Australia.

Proof is in a photo gallery here and an edit there and in Matt Wilkinson’s trophy room (in Byron Bay) and in the Radical Times clip up that way ^.

Radical Times is Quiksilver’s video series for the year. The theory is simple. Go somewhere with a crew. Get radical. Release edit. The first installment is a dazzling success. Highlights include Leonardo Fioravanti’s air at 1:25 and Mikey Wright’s hair any time it is at all visible.
