The latest in Oakley's "Dispatch" series comes to us from the island of Java in Indonesia. Team members Seabass Zietz, Dustin Barca, Lee Wilson, Eric Geiselman, and Danny Fuller followed local legend Betet Merta deep into the jungle to a secret reef set-up where right- and left-hand slabs awaited. Much of Bali and Lombok are now very crowded, but the ferry rides and long overland journey have kept Java off the radar for most travelers. The sheer dangers of this reef pass should keep it that way for some time.
The collective minds over at RVCA have been putting the finishing touches on their first full length surf film, aptly titled SHARING WATER. The list of stars is as follows: Alex Knost, Makua Rothman, Danny Fuller, Daniel Jones, Matt Archbold, Ford Archbold, Kalani David, and Dino Adrian. Here are the first glimpses of light leaked from this mysterious project..

Volcom has been running the scene at Pipeline for a few years now. It all started with the original volcom house, a small one-story cottage right on the sand at pipe. Almost a decade later, and Volcom now has 2 houses, including Gerry Lopez's famous pipeline fortress, and their own 5-star contest. It should come as no surprise that in their first time running an event at pipeline, they scored some of the best pipe of the season. In the end, it was local favorite Jamie O'brien, who held off fellow Hawaiian Danny Fuller, and Australians Mark Mathews, and Anthony Walsh, in a close final. The event finished up in classic conditions, 6-8 foot (Hawaiian) West peaks detonating on first reef, with ten point rides on offer at both pipe and backdoor.

Opening night of Danny Fuller's photography showing was last Thursday in New York City, Soho to be exact. I was supposed to go, but something came up last minute and I pulled out, which I'm pissed about. From the pictures it looked like a good time. Fuck, even Howard Stern showed up, that's him, Danny and some friends in the photo above. For more pictures cruise on over to RVCA.
Get your fill of Fuller photos, as in Danny Fuller, and his photography project The Lost World, which will have its opening reception tonight in the N.Y.C. If you find yourself in The Big Apple, show up, look at some cool photos from Danny's travels, and drink all the free booze that you can.
