Watch: Chapter 11 “Emo Micky”

After watching the comp in Newy last week and then this cool little clip right after, it was hard not to see the stark comparisons that exist in surfing today. Nothing negative on either front, just a fifty mile wide gap in what is being called progressive surfing these days. In the comp world obviously…

TAKE FIVE: EP 16 ‘Rona be damned, the WSL is going to Rio

While the WSL had our attention watching the comp in Newcastle last week (Congrats to Italo and Carissa by the way), they dropped an updated 2021 schedule that featured a few new additions. Barra de la Cruz in Mainland Mexico for one and a reboot of the Oi Rio Pro presented by Corona as another….

Watch: Snapt4 Clay’s B Rolls

Come on, this is just getting ridiculous at this point. As the “world’s best” grovel in some Newcastle fuzz, Logan is posting up throwaways of the most underrated surfer of a generation as he is absolutely shitting on whatever the WSL has to offer these days. Our words not his, of course, as Clay is…

Watch: “Von Froth” EP 25 The Cave

As we’ve come to expect from Von Froth, slabbing pits with a high danger factor are just how he rolls. We’ll let him set this one up. “Last week in Portugal was absolutely crazy, 8-10ft slabbing conditions and The Cave was absolutely firing. The Cave is such a gnarly wave, the length, the thickness of…

Watch: “Mason at the Wedge” A masterstroke of good times

Although it all looks like fun and games, we promise you that even at 3-4 feet there were some serious beatdowns taken by our forever youthful Hawaiian friend. Given our office proximity to the Dirty ‘ol Wedge, we have on occasion sampled the beast, either on a board or just a fun summer womp session,…

Photo Credit: Dan Woodward

During a clean little run of swell down under a few days ago, photographer Dan Woodward bagged a few beauties. He was kind enough to share them with us. We’re guessing the WSL would love a little of this considering the debacle going on in Newy right now. To see more of Dan’s work, check…

Watch: “Days at Bowl” Featuring Josh Burke

It’s kinda cool watching surfers grown into their own. The rail gets a little wetter, the bashes get slightly more critical, the airs get launched higher, etc., while the overall approach just seems to mature session after session. Josh Burke has been growing into just those parameters for a few years now. Who was once…

Watch: “The Greatest Winter Ever to Hit France” Part Deux

All the hyperbole aside, the Hossegor region of France was off the chain this past winter. As we’ve mentioned previously, surely waves have been breaking here of equal quality and ferociousness for many years, but it’s only been more recently that the local crew has found a way to fully exploit them. Skis, rubber, etc….
