Dane Reynolds at home, Jamie O'Brien on fire, and Jordy in Africa
CLIP OF THE WEEK: Dane Reynolds and Dolores It’s hard to believe that all of this shreddin came from a single session. At the conclusion of this clip, we’re left with the realizations that A) Maroon wetsuits look dashing on Dane and 2) He’s surfing better than ever. Who Is JOB Episode 6: Tandem Tubes
Highlights from a single hurricane session
Although it’s composed of a single session, “Dolores Raw” is a banger of an edit. It’s six minutes of Dane doing what he does best: nonchalant progressive surfing on the beat of an obscure-if-not-haunting track. Enjoy and watch repeatedly.
All passengers safe after a night at sea
Rip Curl’s Quest 1 surf charter boat took her last breath late last night as the legendary surf vessel sank to the bottom of the sea in the Mentawais. Fortunately, everyone onboard (eight guests and five crewmembers) made it off the doomed craft and into lifeboats safely. The next morning, approximately seven hours later, they
Step behind the curtain with Fuller
Danny Fuller was born to get shacked. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Having grown up with the man, I can attest to the fact that he’s always had an innate ability to thread a barrel. Even at 11 years old, while most of us were still working on our duck-dives and busy measuring
Jack Freestone, Mikala Jones, and the Maui Boys Get Digital

Jack Freestone takes on a shifty beachbreak in this latest edit from the Australian phenom. No, the waves aren’t perfect, but Jack’s approach is nothing short of amazing. More massive turns and giant airs than you can shake a stick at.
Perfection in Indo, Clay Marzo in Nicaragua, and some top-shelf drone footage
CLIP OF THE WEEK: The Swell of the Century Hits Indo By now, you’ve likely been inundated with an endless array of photos, claims, and video highlighting the massive swell to hit Indo recently. This webclip, shot at Kandui, tops them all. This session was truly perfection defined. Check out the wave at the 4:24
Endless barrels and massive hacks on tap
From where we stand, there are few surfers we would rather see in their element than Clay Marzo. For whatever reason, Clay’s developed an ability to stick drops, navigate sprinting tubes, and pull turns that 99.99 percent of the surfing population would deem unmakeable. In this clip, Clay leaves his beloved Maui behind and travels
Jay Davies and Ricardo Christie take on Jeffrey's Bay
Jay Davies and Ricardo Christie recently left their mark on J-Bay’s fabled walls. In this edit produced by Kustom, the pair spice up the lineup by adding a splash of progression to the drawn-out lines that the point requires. Take note of Davies’ massive, off-the-screen air at the :47 mark.
The Mad Hueys, Owen Wright at J-Bay, a mutant slab, and more
CLIP OF THE WEEK: THE RIGHT A slab that literally made us queasy takes top honors this week. The Right, as it’s affectionately known, is a disfigured wave that lures men looking to guzzle adrenaline and massive barrels. Watch, cringe, and smile. PAMA DAVIES AND THE LOVE BUZZ It’s no secret that Hayden has become the shaper
