Happy first-week-of-December! My how time flies. It goes really fast in one of these videos, where you witness the highlights of one year of Peter Mendia’s surf life, but then it slows down a bit when NRVL takes an inside look at artist Hector Menendez hard at work. There’s a (long) short about the trials of traveling through the Angola desert and a tutorial from John John on the pull-in method. Plus some other gems, like the one where it’s hard to tell the difference between surfing and snowboarding. Strap in.

NRVL Death Club – Hector Menendez
Dun dun dun. This is really good.
Segment from Into the Mind
The editing on this is so stellar, it’s hard to tell when you’re watching surfing and when you’re watching snowboarding. Amazing.
