“Where the hell is Jelly Land?”
We’re not in the habit of posting surf footage, but there’s a first time for everything! City schools get out in the coming week, real summer is almost here, and everyone ends up scheming on how to bum a ride to Rockaway. In honor of that, we threw together a greatest hits remix from the past ~year of footage from prolific back noseblunter, #top10 staple, and also the QS office’s unanimous favorite surfer, Shin Sanbongi.
Footage is pulled from Shin’s Instagram + Tao’s awesome Marseilles vid for Carhartt WIP, which is worth a rewatch since it feels like it flew a bit under the radar + a couple loose Adidas clip / Polar video bits.
Once synonymous with men flown by Super-8 umbrellas and the occasional gas-masked Swedish penis, Polar has taken a refreshing 2.0 turn in its video output these past twelve months. The cuts are still quick — the Polarian fingerprint remains — but the skating has began to gain in its armwrestling match with the art.
