Watch: “Beyond the Tour” Featuring Jordy Smith

As has been well documented, Jordy Smith is spending some extra time in Hawaii these days. Owning a home on the North Shore can help in that regard. This clip was filmed in early spring as Jordy was getting ready for the 2020 WSL season. It was a great fall on the North Shore and…

Watch: Chapter 11 TV Surfing’s contradiction: Dane Reynolds

As most have seen by now, Dane just dropped two new clips produced by his ironically titled Chapter 11 project. With his loyal cohort Mini Blanchard behind the lens and pulling the levers, it would appear that Dane is indeed back in the entertainment biz. All good, of course. However, Dane’s latest creative output did…

Watch: “Morroco Aint Easy” Von Froth Episode #4

They say timing is everything. Apparently so in the case of Nic Von Rupp. It would seem our ‘ol pal Nic was busy stacking some clips just prior to the whole COVID scare. However, instead of just a short vid or two to release during this down time, Nic has a whole freaking series in…

Photo Credit: Christa Funk A female point of view

To say that surf photography is a male-dominated profession would be an understatement. Beginning way back in the late ’70s/early’80s with the legendary Shirley Rogers, there just haven’t been too many women that have pointed a camera seaward. Or swim Pipe for that matter. Well, that is changing as women like Christa Funk, and others,…

WY Recommends: “Gash and the Seven Blades” An art installation

Art curator Josh Rush has been working on this project with his brother Tom Cole and Simon Buttonshaw for the last 3 years, featuring Greg Brown, Paul Cousins, and Simon himself. If you don’t recognize the name, Buttonshw has had a heavy hand in many of Quik’s classic graphics over the years. The Gash/Seven Blades…

Watch: “Bronson Meydi” Indonesia’s legit young talent

The kid from Lakey has been on the radar for a few years now, but his surfing of late has taken on a new level of maturity. We often see young guns with all the hops terrorizing their local spots but then eventually outgrow their own body, get distracted by life, or some combination of…

Watch: “Reminisce” A groovy short by Perry Gershkow

A short film by Perry Gershkow made from a few of the just misses and a few nice keepers from “Elude” featuring Noah Wegrich. Something about black and white that just screams “cold.” Well, the hood, boots, and gloves doesn’t help either. Enjoy. What Youth Song: Abusey Junction by KOKOROKO

Watch: “One week” Some quality time with Barron Mamiya

Yes, we did give him a shout in our 2020 “Five To Watch”, like that was ever a hard choice. But seriously, this guy is charging and this clip shows the man truly in his element: punchy, throaty, Hawaiian barrels. Simply, Barron is one of those guys who don’t even need a tour to still…
