Watch: Von Froth EP 24 “The Grower”

If you follow Nic, you know he was on a bit of a holiday in Costa Rica of late. Well, a huge swell popped up back at home so Nic and his girl jumped on a flight and scored this beast in rare form. In his words. “Just in from Costa Rica into some 12ft…

Watch: “The Kids Are Alright” Featuring Dimitri Poulos

In these uncertain times, it is comforting to know that the youth of surfing is thriving. Okay, that might be a bit melodramatic but we do like our red hot up and comers ’round here. In this new series from O’Neill, we once again get to see one of California’s bright young talents, Dimitri Poulos,…

Watch: “Russell” A brief introduction

Russell Bierke hardly needs an introduction within surfing circles. The man has redefined the hellman, slab junky genre and his signature flowing blond hair always seems to be in some precarious wave riding situation. And yes, he paid for it physically in many ways. But, he keeps right on charging. The marketing crew at O’Neill…

Watch: “Bio Haz” featuring Harry Bryant

As surfing’s high flying country jester, the “Haz” has been entertaining us for years now, and this film does not stray from that script. Kneelo, rubber mat, even some drop knee action, Mr. Bryant is about as spontaneous as it gets and makes surfing actually look kinda fun. None of the “serious face” look from…

Watch: “Morocco” More Asher Snapt4 b rolls

Asher and Logan have been circulating some high-quality b-roll stuff that has fallen by the wayside from the Snapt4 project. Here, Asher plays around in some damn fun-looking Morrocan point surf on a few different Album models. It begs the question: is there a better flow on a right-hand point than Asher’s? Looking forward to…

Watch: Massive Hossegor

You didn’t use to see much out of France in the dead of winter. Surely there’s always been crew charging but just not much in the way of photos or vids. Not any more as the boys at RIPITUP don’t miss a thing. It would also seem the advent of two important innovations has changed…

Watch: Free Scrubber Tom Curren breaks the Internet

When the news broke a few weeks back of a Tom Curren/Rip Curl video project filmed entirely in Mex and under a strict COVID lockdown, our minds wandered about a bit. Which Tom Curren were we going to get? One of the most stylish high-performance surfers of a generation, or the mad scientist on a…

Watch: “Mason and Pops at the sandbar”

In this latest episode, Mason hits Ehukai with his father and North Shore legend, Michael. If you’ve ever surfed the joint, you’ll recognize the wave and its many playful moods. Warm, lime green water and the softest sand that will ever caress one’s toes, the beach park is the go-to when the swell is small…
