Friends. Buddies. Amigos. Pals.
Doesn't matter what you call them, but things are always more fun when they're around. We were craving a good time with a great crew, so we went to Australia with Mikey Wright, Austen Sweetin, Matt Hoy, Zak Miller, Mat Crepel, Atsushi Ishikawa and Bryan Fox. It was a week-long adventure featuring mountains, waves, meat pies and most of all, mateship. Your invitation to join us through it all comes in the form of the latest episode of Radical Times. Come on in and get rad.

"Australia is just like Victoria Bitter, it's the "very best." It's pretty crazy to be able to surf with Mikey Wright at his homebreak and then take him up into the mountains to slash in the pipe and send airs. It was awesome watching everyone rip on everyone else's board of choice and seeing how they put their own style and influence into it. Radical Times with Mates was a trip I'll never forget. I'm so stoked to be a part of a crew that knows how to Stay High 24/7."

"Welcome to the land of wundah, the land down undah. Australia is so damn cool. Everyone is nice and everything is nice. The food, the people, the country. We didn't exactly score at the mountains or in the ocean but that didn't stop us having a great trip. I've been dreaming about the boardriding lifestyle since I was a kid and this trip brought it all together. The skateparks were really rad, we ate way too many pies and Matt Hoy is a complete fucking legend. If you haven't been to Australia, book your ticket — but you're gonna have to learn to say G'day because every day is a good day in Australia."

"The vast land, the perfect weather, and of course, the pies! After this trip, Australia has become one of my favourite countries in the world. We don't even get jetlag coming from Japan. Being able to go snowboarding, surfing and skating with a team of friends was an experience I'll never forget. The boardriders trips are awesome

I love surf. I love snowboard. I love skateboard. I love chicken butter pie!"

"What can I say? Australia is one of the most amazing places on the planet! The people, the landscapes, the surf, the snow and the skate culture... you can't beat it. Sharing waves, running laps and riding concrete with like-minded friends kept everyone frothing and inspired the whole time. It'd be impossible to have this much fun if we were all just focused on one board. Hands down, these are the best trips I've ever been on. And the coolest team I've ever been a part of. Keep the Radical Times coming!"

"Boardriding is our life, so when you pack your bag with a snowboard, a skateboard and a surfboard and head to Australia to meet up with the best mates you can have on a team, you know it's a trip of a lifetime! Add a few (a lot!) of pies and couple of VB's and nothing can stop you from having the best roadtrip ever! Thanks everyone, it really was radical times."

"It was so good hanging out and riding boards with such cool people. Everyone was stoked to be in Australia experiencing the country, eating meat pies and drinking a couple of VBs. The excitement was contagious. Getting to see all of these surfers, skaters and snowboarders in their element was all time. There was no ego and no whinging about not dedicating enough time to a certain spot, just a bunch of blokes having fun together in Aus! Thanks for the hell times mates. Stay high"

"This was so different from a normal trip. The crew was epic and we had such a hell time. I was frothin' feeding off all the boys and trying to learn from watching them rip. Riding different boards is fun and I reckon it makes you think differently about your approach to surfing. And it's always so good to have a couple of VBs with your mates. Rad times!"
