Drew McPherson- Solitude

In a new clip sound tracked by vagabond muso Archer, needessentials product tester Drew McPherson goes deep in the mist on some cold and lonely, cliff-lined coasts. Swinging a long pintail single-fin under the lip, Drew’s uncomplicated approach echoes the lonesome blues of Archer. Both are men who travel light; who try to find authenticity by letting go of the trappings, not accumulating them. Sometimes humans need to slow down and take stock, so kick back in an old chair and enjoy this perfect slice of
arm-dragging’ soul.

Then go find your own.

Nias - Laurie Towner

The swell was almost to big for the reef, turning a perfect right into a thick double up monster. On the big day most waves where going unridden with only a few putting themselves under the lip and getting rewarded with some amazing tubes. After getting some great waves Laurie Towner got flogged at the bottom of a huge double up separating some ribs. He was done! but still stoked.

Torren Martyn on a 5’4” twin - baby blue

Torren Martyn in a short story about a long session in Indonesia. The trip itself was a short spontaneous one, this is one of if not my favourite waves to visit. It's just one of those places that I really enjoy spending self time at, reading, thinking, early mornings and early nights just simple living. I find the ocean there so unpredictable and mesmerising, one of those places you can sit and just about stare at the ocean all day and never really know what's going to happen next.
