December 2016:  By Brandon DesJarlais 

After spending an awesome year around the world, I decided a chill trip to Mexico would be the perfect way to top things off. I love Mexican culture and wanted to brush up on my Spanish skills. Over the course of 5 weeks, I spent a lot time surfing, skating, taking photos, getting tan AF, and hanging out with Diego, Henri, and Sebastian Tron of Tron X.

Surf, skate and friends.

In addition to spending some unforgettable time in the ocean, the gorgeous weather proved to be a perfect opportunity to do some final testing and media production for the new 2017 Moonshine line-up. We’ve been prototyping a few new shapes and ideas over the past year or so, and I couldn’t be more stoked for the three new models to release in January.

The Outlaw: A versatile go-to single kick shredder with potential at any speed or in any environment. Commonly referred to as “the single-kick Hooch”. I designed and skated an early prototype of this board in the new xXx 3 movie as Vin Diesel’s stunt double with the homie Nick Pappas.

The Elixir: A symmetrical freeride/freestyle hybrid with MAD pop and the most functional and comfortable platform in the game.

The Proof: The smoothest riding board you’ll ever set foot on in a classic pintail inspired shape. Roots baby!
