Sup yall, recently LAS has been squeezing its way into the selling crap market. You can see our shirts and can coolies in the sidebar on the right, but we have also been making custom swim trunks inspired by vintage Jantzen swimwear. Local LA seamstress Melissa Poe hand makes these shorts to order, which means you get to choose the color and trim and be the only person on the planet to own that specific pair of trunks. Check out the sexy photos of Throb below struttin his man-package at Deep Creek in them. Click HERE for the link to Melissa’s Etsy page. Each pair is made from a heavy duty polyester/cotton blend and has been tested to withstand a 50 foot cliff jump to the crotch.
Support indie commerce! Without your help we cannot thrive. You will not only look wicked-fresh in these shorts, you will also feel a sense of pride for contributing to local business.
So Vanessa and Djo came into town for a week to go camping and cliff jumping. Since we hadn’t been out to Matillija this year we drove to check it out. The Pump, Eddy and Ricky Baby met up with us and we randomly saw Daniel and his buddies when we woke up at the camp site the next morning.
This place has changed a lot since we started going about 5 years ago. Most of the cliff jumping spots are completely filled in with giant rocks and even the giant waterfall jump is filled in with sand. We found one spot to jump and it was only 20 feet tall into 7 feet of water. Really hope that some flash floods will hit this canyon during winter and push out all the crap.
Directions: Take 101 north to 33 north in Ventura. Follow the 33 for a few miles through town and it will veer left at a Vons. Make sure you stay on the 33 the whole time then turn left on NORTH Matillija Rd. Follow the road 4 miles till it ends at a parking lot on the left. Walk down the road past the peacock sanctuary and you will cross the stream a few times. After 1.5 miles the road forks, take the left side and you will hit a T intersection then take a right and hike past another dudes house. IGNORE ALL SIGNAGE IT WILL THROW YOU OFF! The trail will cross the creek and will end up in a tunnel of trees. The camping spot is about 3 miles from the trailhead, the first set of falls is another 3 miles up the trail. When the creek splits the first time take the left side and follow it up to the double tier fall on the left. Right before the double tier fall is another creek coming in from the right, if you follow that creek it will take you to the upper pools and some amazing waterfalls. When you visit please pack out what you pack in. Keep this and all the outdoors clean.
Sup brodies?! Last weekend we drove out to Monkey Canyon to check the water level hoping it would be deep enough to jump, it wasn’t. Usually the pool below the slide is 12 feet deep but since the Station Fire a couple years ago the entire canyon has been silted in. The water is only two feet deep at the jump spot. So instead of hanging out at the slide we went upstream to a small pool and fucked around. Hopefully we will see a huge storm season this winter that will clear out all the sediment so we can start jumping next summer. Thanks to everyone who came out, sorry it wasn’t deep enough. Enjoy the vid.
Are you an EXTREME cliff jumper? Can you live out of a car with 3 other sweaty dudes for a month? Will your mom get mad if you are gone for a month?
We are recruiting an extreme cliff jumper to co-star in a full length feature film about cliff jumping in California. You must love hiking, swimmin, camping and road trips because we are living out of the car for a month straight. We will fly you to Los Angeles, you will get in the car and ride with us upstate for the cliff jumping experience of your life. The water is cold, the cliffs are high and you will be hiking a lot. When it’s all over we will fly you back.
The tentative dates are June 15 to July 15 1012. You must be able to dedicate an entire month to hucking yourself off cliffs. If you think you have what it takes then reply or email us for more info.
