Fever Tease.

FEVER DREAM the musical from FLAMES YATES on Vimeo.

We've been hangin out with a dude by the name of Russel W, sorting out some sounds for our project. Such a talented dude, and his side project with Dane Taylor, Shining Bird is equally rad. We also had 'Absolute Boys' kino Versosa, grace us with his presence and I'm glad he did. His band is recording a small vinyl release soon, or maybe they already have. I'm so freakin excited for this to come together...

Big Man on Campus. v2.0

It wasn't so long ago you could have found Jimmy Kates down his local beach gettin' freaky on 2 foot dribble all day long. Zion team manager gives this hole the Koot stamp of approval.

News Kegs

We been waitin' all year to get massive stern, and she finally came through. Fellas callin biggest stern ever surfed with the bigs ones being unpaddleable. Around 4pm the swell dropped to 12 feet and most dudes left. Craziest day of our lives. The walk back in the dark felt like nothing...


Some dude from Jersey called the Pom.

The Pom again. Best thing I've ever filmed.


Hani the skitzwad

Jase droppin

Jimmy became a man


Charles. This kid left his Tassie home and moved to the goldy last week. He threw down every last cent to make it home for this swell. Now he has no money to get back. Crazy.

Big Wheels (The Day Bryce Gage Slept In)

Getting skunked and rained on three days straight aint fun. An entire wardrobe cycle. A ruined 50mm f1.4 sitting in the bin. James Cakes quit bodyboarding twice. So we threw down on a whim, Cakes unfastened the noose and Bryce Gage (Fever auxilary angle) enjoyed a few extra zeds. Six foot nuggan and empty. Finlay did so many jumps he rolled in and threw up on the rocks.

Too much pipe

Pipe gets kinda repetitive to watch but it's just so much fun when you're there. Promise there won't be too much of it in the vid.

Ben. Killer forward, 100fps.

Bennett tweak. Didn't hold it for long enough so it doesn't look that good in motion. Did a sick reverse on a right but.

Here's another shot of corpse sitting on a bicycle.

Corpse/pipe: best of

Corpse was whinging about not getting enough hangtime on this blog, so here's a few cool frames from the wave he loves most.


Beachbreaks kinda get me excited, even though I hate sand.
Corpse and Jim pre-summer salt hangs.

Never Again.

I so badly want Vico to be that cool place of rare beauty that exists in my mind. But every time it gets me. Those horizons stacked full of raw ocean, and dusted by stiff offshores fall upon the world's worst geology, and I go home with nothing besides a sore throat, general loathing for fellow man and the words resounding, 'never again'

And then a day like this comes along.

Talkin Covers.

We were sitting at the beanstalk the other day throwing around ideas for the cover of Fever Dream, when Thomas rocked up with this shot of the ever graceful Koot. Eureka.

Dark Raven

You may have caught wind of Jono inked to the eyeballs, big dirty git flapping in the wind, tearing south on his 40 inch maddog tech. Fever dream got the motion baby.

By Popular Demand

The Kootlife.

Dav Fox: Fever Dream Enthusiast

While we're on the topic, a man who loves cats as much as the next man, possibly more so. Big F'kn Dav Fox. Returned home from Bali recently. Plane quaranteened. Diagnosed with Typhoid Fever. Sweating profusely. Spewing out both holes and having crazy fever dreams about revolutionizing aerotechnology. And cats.

Picture of cat

Mitch Tomkins is a man of consuming passions. Meat pies. Scaffolding. Flicking light switches on and off. Cats. He put us onto this cool site. A must see for fellow cat lovers.

Jimmy Kates

Aint' no fool

Flavour Country.

We been just 'lurkin' for this wave to break for years now. Every time we go there it's chit. Skitzlay said he was gonna do a bigger air than the one Greg Egg McCafferty was rumoured to do out Kiama wedge, circa 92', and he did. But we thought we'd leave you frameless until November, when the fever hits.

Brendo would go.
