JOEL’S FINAL YEAR ON TOUR
During the Occast with Bruce Irons, Occy accidentally mentions that 2017 will be Joel’s final year on Tour.
Apparently, Kelly’s also stated that it’s his last year on Tour, but I can’t find this quote nor the original source. Let’s call it a credible rumor until further notice.
In addition to rad live broadcasts like The Volcom Pipe Pro and The Cape Fear event, RedBull has feature films “Let’s Be Frank” and “Distance Between Dreams”, and a number of excellent series like “The Ripple Effect”. Toil your hours away on RedBull.tv

From the SF Chronicle, “The bankruptcy filing comes after costly legal trouble for Cartel Management. Red Bull Media House North America Inc. filed a lawsuit against Cartel and Titans of Mavericks in the Superior Court of Los Angeles on Friday, just days before the bankruptcy action. Red Bull Media House sought an unspecified amount in damages after paying Titans of Mavericks $400,000 for the rights to webcast this year’s competition — which hasn’t happened yet — then never receiving a refund after Cartel abruptly terminated the contract. After receiving Cartel’s purported termination letter, searching for a rationale for Cartel’s erratic behavior, Plaintiff found that Cartel is beset by financial and legal difficulties,” the suit states. At the end of October, a jury in the Central District of California found Cartel and Marisa Miller, an international supermodel and wife of Guess, were liable to pay $1 million after breaching a contract with another company, Segler Holdings LLC.”
