Weekend Playlist Volume 3

We're back with another weekend playlist. It's an eclectic (and electric) mix of tunes picked for their ability to bring on the chillest of chill vibes.

This week we're bringing in Lone, new Unknown Mortal Orchesta, new Death Cab for Cutie, Neon Indian's most popular track, and some Tycho to class things up.

Hang out with us this weekend?


The Cushe Crew is on tour this weekend and we are stoked.

For all of you paddle sport and outdoor enthusiasts, we’re at Canoecopia in Madison, Wisconsin today through Sunday. Come say ‘hi’, try on some Slippers and get a dose of summertime vibes as you relax in a “barbecue dad” chair that looks exactly like you think it does while kicking it around the fake bonfire. Info here: http://cushe.us/cshcanoecopia

Not in Wisconsin? That’s okay! There are 10 Banff Mountain Film Fest events around the country and one in Canada this weekend. Fill your adventure and inspiration quota for the month. Tour dates and times here: http://cushe.us/banffworldtour

On Saturday we’ll be at The Hideout in Chicago, IL partying with 11 bands on their way to Austin, TX for SXSW. Details here: http://cushe.us/sxswsendoff

Can’t party with us? Party with yourself. This week’s playlist features the bands we’re sending off tomorrow. It’s an eclectic mix, and we’re into that.

Cushe Signs Jessica Anderson

This week we welcome another surf prodigy to Team Cushe. Pro surf champ Jessica Anderson of Chile joins Cushe to crush swells, dominate the competition, and soak up beach vibes with us when she’s finished.

 

Born in Northern California, Jessica and her family relocated to Pichilemu, Chile while she was still a little girl. She has since become one of the very best women in Chilean surf and it’s hardly a surprise, she comes from a family of surfers — seriously, her entire family surfs. Jessica was raised at the beach and on the water. She lives and breathes the Cushe Life.

 

Follow Jessica on her website and on social media (facebook, twitter, Instagram) as she hunts happiness and surf titles around the world.

 

Felicitaciones Jessica!

Banff Mountain Film and Radical Reels World Tour

 

Here at Cushe, we love a well-shot flick. We were pumped to partner with The Banff Centre to host the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival for the second year running and are stoked to be a part of the Banff Mountain Film and Radical Reels World Tour happening now.

 

Check out the admittedly epic trailers for both programs:

 

 

 

‘Whoa’, right? And that music… next level stuff.

Showtime for Cushe Ambassador - Matthias Giraud

Matthias, the self-proclaimed “Super Frenchie”, was born for adventure, and never refuses an opportunity to find the edges of his limits; which, we don't think he's even seen yet. First to ski BASE jump off Mississippi Head at Mt Hood, Oregon, and last to leave the party — Matthias’ latest stunt features a paraglide rope swing that is exactly as dangerous and as it sounds.


Matthias has been with Cushe since 2012 — we’re smitten with his charismatic mug and wild-man antics, and we’re not the only ones to have taken notice. "60 Minutes Sports" examines the wild mind of the creative thrill seeker who calls ski base jumping "his calling” this week!


The 13-minute segment airs Tuesday, February 3rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.


See a short preview of the segment courtesy CBS News HERE.

 

Tune in or visit the cushe.com blog next week for an update including the full video from SHOWTIME — stay up-to-date with Matthias on his website.

Today is a Good Day (day)

So it's January, holiday season is over, and maybe you're feeling like you don't have a lot left to celebrate. Well at least one South Central Hip Hop icon might beg to differ.

As immortalized by O'Shea Jackson, better known by the the Goodyear Blimp as Ice Cube, Tuesday, January 20 marks the official Today Was a Good Day day (just click the link, you won't be disappointed).

What do you need to partake in the festivities? We're not sure, but a drop-top couldn't hurt. Or maybe it's an all-day marathon of the delightfully awkward '90s time capsule, Yo! MTV Raps.  There are no hard and fast rules, but if you find yourself yelling, "Domino!" you're probably on the right track.

#CusheTime Photo Contest

Get stoked - it’s contest time! Which means some peoples are getting free shoes! 

Participation is easy, but if you are unsure, just ask yourself:

1. Do I take pictures of stuff while I’m doing stuff?
2. Do I share those pictures online sometimes / all the time / maybe too much? 
3. Am I currently using the internet? 

If you answered ‘yes’ or ‘hell yes’ to any or all of those questions, you can totally do this! If you answered ‘no’ to question #3, we are scientifically confused and will need to draft an immediate email to Neil deGrasse Tyson for clarification.  

So how do you play along with this contest? Simple, just share a picture of your #CusheTime with us! #CusheTime is YOUR time - and it could be anything. A sunset on the beach, a couple of good friends and a bonfire, a photo from a concert… whatever it is that helps you find a little happiness - that’s your #CusheTime. 

Post and tag your photo using the hashtag #CusheTime on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or upload it directly to our contest page

One important thing to note - if any of your social accounts that you share this photo on are private, we can’t see your entry! No worries if you wanna keep things private though, just use the uploader on the contest page we linked above. 

Make it fun / awesome / silly - ‘cause we’re picking a winner each week for a free pair of Cushes! Now get our there and find some more #CusheTime, share a photo, and win some shoes!
