Soldiering On

When duty called in Afghanistan, Captain Nate Dinger took his love of shaping with him

If most surfers learned that they were about to be sent to a landlocked, militarized war zone, their first thoughts would likely lie somewhere along a spectrum of disbelief, with “Oh shit” on one side and “There must be a way to get out of this” on the other. Missing surf because of a regular

Big Wednesday: Any Good?

Ranking the coming-of-age tale on the 38th anniversary of its release

Big Wednesday came out 38 years ago this week. Which makes it old enough to contemplate scheduling its first colonoscopy, gnash its teeth in worry over its roller-coastering 401k, and finally put the last of its sub-6’0″ shortboards out to the Craigslist pasture. It’s also a nice, easy, jumping-off point for a post about Big

Coastal Commission Chairman Holds Shady Meetings

Steve Kinsey will likely sit out Banning Ranch vote after "forgetting" meetings with developers

Remember a couple months back when members of the California Coastal Commission (CCC), in a thinly-veiled power grab by influential developers (allegedly), voted to oust their longtime executive director and champion of the environment, Charles Lester?

The Surf Rig of Our Dreams

Capable. Elegant. Hose-off-able.

Are you a well-heeled surf tripper, perhaps a Ranch parcel owner, say, with some hardcore overlanding to do on the way to a favored break? Do you like the kinds of 4x4s that require you to roll up your fancy khakis and squat in mud up to the axles to physically lock the front hubs?

Let’s Swing Both Ways!

Hot switchfoot action with your favorite surf legends

Who wants the same stale feelings all the time? Who doesn’t want a little sensory variety? To touch and be touched in ways that excite in their strange unfamiliarity? After walking the same straight and narrow path for so long, swinging over to the other side is a tall drink of expectation-defying satisfaction. Kelly Slater
