Rip Curl Padang Cup gives us Curren v Curren v Ho v Irons. Yes please

You ever watch the Rip Curl Padang Cup? Happens every summer, kinda under the radar, really gotta be paying attention to know it’s going on. But it’s almost always the most interesting event of the year. Splendid surf, beautiful backdrop, very talented tuberiders riding lots of tubes. Waves not good enough? They don’t run it

Ocean Floor Mining: The Next Terrible Thing

"The New Gold Rush" doesn't sound so great for the oceans

Because we won’t be satisfied until the entire surface of the earth has been rendered in a never-ending pursuit to greedily dig up things that can be burned for fuel or hammered into profitable metals regardless of the consequences, humankind’s most adventurous profiteers have now set their sights on mining the depths of the sea floor

Surf Naked: It’s National Nude Day

Don't knock it 'til you've tried it

Loosen your boardshorts, untie those bikini straps, undo whatever you have to undo to slink out of a one-piece—it’s National Nude Day! The “holiday” started in New Zealand in 1976, though nobody apparently really knows why, or how, but it exists anyway, overshadowed in importance—and just barely—by France’s Bastille Day.

Bruce Gold: Surf Hippy Extraordinaire

Philosophy of J-Bay Dirtbagging 101 with Bruce Gold

Surf J-Bay all morning, pluck oysters all afternoon, sell ’em in the pub that night, repeat. I don’t know much about Bruce Gold here, but I do know that he just might be my new favorite surfer.
