    Chaps, whenever I think about what I know to be upcoming in 2013 re: the Frogskins, I get depressed. It's a pair of Nitraids which are 'meh' and the Aquatique series, which is a lazy re-hash of the Summit series. It pains me to have to even write the name Aquatique.

    However, we know Oakley will do 3-4 collab releases a year, and we know there will be some new 'series' for summer time. The question is, what are they? Is it worth getting excited about? Samples must be out there somewhere. What have you guys heard on the grapevine?

    The Craftsman collection was pretty dope. Saw it at Surf Expo. Did not get the whole scoop. They were hand painted and then sanded down. Saw a Garage Rock, Holbrook, and 2 Frogskins. Also got a look at Twoface and Style Switch coming later this year. I really liked Twoface. seemed a little bigger and more wrapped than Holbrook but with the same shape and feel.

    The Craftsman collection looks like replica Petterson's.

    Yeah. I've said it many times, Oakley do collabs with various brands which are limited edition and then a little while later they come out with their own stuff that looks a lot like the collab stuff.

    You read my mind there. Although I'm assuming they're not going to be nearly as limited
