Do you struggle to find time to balance both careers out ? Do you schedule in studio bookings before travelling to destinations to take on a surf job? Tell us more of the background of how life actually works around both careers and making it work?
Mate when it all started with the combo of us being able to have a career in both music and surfing, surfing definitely came first but now its all about THE MUSIC. The best thing about our life styles is we still get to play at amazing places like bali and surf in between gigs which is all time. All you really need these days is ya laptop a good set of headphones and a tropical background and you can make music anywhere…
Do you guys have some essentials that you travel with to make the show work both for performances and in the studio? Tell us more about your mobile operations.. Mac or PC? Ableton or Cubase?
Like i said laptop good headphones and your usb stick and were set !!!! All we need is you guys to bring the decks and speakers and we have a party… We both use MacBooks with abelton set up !!! Our phones are samsung’s best cameras in the business on those bad boys !!!

We have to ask that Penis surfboard – whos idea was that? I looks like it goes amazing.
Whos the shaper? Do you have more than one? Any great videos we can check out of it in action??
That idea came from fisher, i was injured and couldn’t do anything and the things that go through head when ya bored can be very interesting, so i decided to create a dick surfboard with my shaping brand super surfboards. they were frothing to see it come to life and when i surfed it the thing went amazing hahaha. I have two of them at the moment one is the original cock and the new one is the hippy dick which i just got. if ya wanna check them out go to our cut snake youtube page there all there….
Judging by your instagram and facebook pages the fans love your antics and practical jokes, they can’t get enough of them. Whats the funniest thing that comes to mind that in recent times?
