News from Absinthe

With a long, fun and productive snow season behind us and the summer halfway through, the Absinthe crew members have isolated themselves on a remote surf destination and are locked in until the new film READY has been born.

To give you a little taste of what to expect you can check out the READY trailer on as well as on our film tour site

The US & Canadian film tour schedule is posted on this site and will be updated each week with all of the event details. Kicking off its third year at the end of August, the Sphere of Influence Film Tour will travel throughout the US and Canada to bring READY to the big screen along with most of the riders featured in the film. All of this will go down before the dvd is released in stores.

In Europe the tour will simultaneously take place and kick off in Switzerland, continue through Austria and Germany including a stop in the UK, France, Norway and Russia.
