We are a week late on this sorry but if you haven’t picked up Issue 3 of the the Damaged Goods Zine we highly recommend it. Here’s some more info and a teaser vid below if you have don’t your research. Get it online here.
Damaged Goods Zine is an independent, New Zealand, surf-culture magazine.
Damaged Goods have produced a stunning third issue, with writing and outstanding photography tuned to the most discerning critic and surf enthusiast.
This magazine delivers us an interview feature with the guru of channel bottom surfboards, Allan Byrne. It takes us to the celtic seas of Eire, then on a journey through the best images summer had to offer. We learn about the threat of seabed mining from Tony Baker, interview Ruban Nielson from Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Husk and NZ artist Liam Gerrard, a man who paints the kind of portraits birds fly into. We see what tools are needed for Kai Neville to create his landmark films and talk to him about his latest collaborative project What Youth. Balance this with superlative photography and you have yourself a very tidy and memorable surf-centric magazine that will do nicely on your coffee table.

Tom Bone is our Mt Maunganui store manager and he has headed over to the States for the Coachella festival and a bit of a trip. He’s not the best photographer but he has sent us a few random phone snaps and it looks like he is having a ball. There are also a few more photos from him on our instagram @thanksstore.

We have given you a song each week from the Coachella lineup which Tom Bone from Thanks is hitting up next week. He’s bloody excited as well. We’ll hopefully get some photos from him to put on the blog.
We thought this week we’d give you a few tracks from a couple of bands/groups who have some members that work at Thanks/Ykwal and also a couple of NZ remixes that we have been liking.
Here’s a couple from some Thanks staff…
The Libres just released a new track this week called I Wanna Know…
Joeseph and Maia are blowing up and have just released a video for their latest single Nothing I can do.
Our friend DJ Katana (Rui) has released a new mix – Autumn Chill mx which we highly recommend.
The Departure Club have got a great thing going on and they have put out a couple of their own remixes which are really impressive. Turn em up.
