The Front Bottoms - Twin Size Mattress

Pics by Mitch

When team Cushe surfer, Mitch Corbett, isn't crushing cold water waves off the coast of Ireland - he's sharing some amazing photos from his life of wandering. Follow along on Instagram at @mitchcorbettnawia. We do - because it's way more interesting than putting spreadsheets together for the boss. Boss, if you are reading this, we'll have those spreadsheets right over.

They say all the best songs are breakup songs. That must make this our worst set of tracks ever - 'cause this month's playlist is for gettin' cozy. Especially our snowbound friends all over the country.

Daft Punk - Something About Us
Blackbird Blackbird - Happy With You
Elliot Smith - Say Yes
Dawes - Someone Will

The Best New Gear At OR

Outdoor Retailer is a big-normous trade show in Salt Lake City for gear fanatics who drool over outdoor equipment, and apres-sport kit. Naturally, we're there to show off the latest and greatest designs from our secret shoe lab, and since many of us on the Cushe team are sporty, we're digging for new gear ourselves. Though, we try not to drool. There is a LOT to take in. Thankfully, there are people like the good folks over at the GearJunkie who spend hours putting together lists of the best gear. Also thankfully, the good folks over at the GearJunkie have picked the upcoming Matthias WP as one of their favorite products from the show! 

Check out the whole list from the GearJunkie here.

3 Things Not To Love About The Holidays

Dudes... we're a positive bunch. We like days without plans. When things go wrong, we roll with it. We support everyone's right to pursue happiness - especially around the holidays. Lately though, there have been a few things that have really not settled right with us about these days that we celebrate. It's time to get it out there. Here are 3 things we can't get down with this time of year:

1. "New" holiday music - This may have started with Kenneth Bruce Gorelick, aka Kenny G… and it should have ended with Kenneth. Thanks to this adult contemporary / smooth jazz saxophonist, we’re stuck listening to remakes of classic tunes that never needed remaking. We hope Kenny G’s stocking is full of coal. Every. Single. Year. 

2. Ugly sweater parties - Let’s be clear – this WAS a good idea when it started. It challenged the attendees to thrift a truly heinous knitted creation to debut at an annual holiday party. Now, it’s an industry. There are scores of websites that make it WAY too easy to score your next ugly sweater. In fact, you can even customize them. This newer tradition has lost its way. We’ll consider removing it from the list if it can get back on point. 

3. Krampus - OK. Christmas has been happening our entire lives, and we’re just learning about Krampus, the dark companion of St. Nicholas? What the actual #&$%!? This thing is terrifying! Why does this exist at such a joyous time of year? What does the Naughty List not cover that we need an actual Christmas devil for? What do people do to get on the damn Krampus list!? Krampus is a serious holiday bummer – and we would like it if he were struck from the record all together. 

We’re off to sharpen candy canes like prison shivs, just in case Krampus decides to crash our holiday party / is a real thing. 

On that note - have a laid-back holiday from all your pals at Cushe!
