Watch: “Von Froth” EP: 019 Portugal’s most dangerous wave

Sorry, we might have missed an episode or two last week. The Nazare media overload finally got to us! Well, Nic is back in action, this time at Portugal’s notorious “Cave.” We’ll let Nic take it from here. “Cave is such an insane wave. It’s a perfect wave until it isn’t. Deadly heads of rocks…

Watch: “Getting to Know” Featuring Martin Le Clair

Our very creative friend, Oscar Valencia, sent us this film of French skater Martin Le Clair. It’s a groovy little piece shot in and around Bordeaux, France. On film no less! Martin’s smooth flow and the unique backdrop of a timeless European city gives this film something different in today’s “clip a minute” vortex. Kinda…

Watch: “Happy Talk” A film by Eithan Osborne and Andrew Schoener

In this 20 minute peek into the life of one of surfing’s brightest new starts, Eithan employs the uber-artistic Andrew Schoener to chase…

Take Five RIP John Shimooka

Photo Credit: Chris Peel Part 2 Another look around

Chris Peel lives a rather nomadic life by most standards. All over OZ, Indo, PNG, and the occasional trip to the PNW. Let’s just say the guy gets around. His subject matter is mostly surf and he’s obviously connected to the right crew when it comes time to shoot. However, he ain’t a one-trick pony…

Watch: “Mirage” The Story of Skeleton Bay

You may have seen vid this by now as it’s been floating around the ‘net from last week. It’s a brief look at the legendary left point of Walvis Bay, or Skeleton Bay as it was named in an attempt to protect it. Obviously the locals knew about it long before the Surfer Magazine Google…

Watch: Von Froth: EP 16 Opening Day

Yesterday marked the opening day of the 2020 season. Huge surf for the season opener at Queen Nazaré but only a small version of what is coming Wednesday/Thursday. From the looks of the forecast, the Swell of the Century is coming. Nic added, “I have never ever seen a swell forecast this big and clean….
