Jay Moriarity's wipeout, 20 years later

I feel bad writing this, but when my thoughts turn to Jay Moriarity, I always, incorrectly, think he died during that horrible “Iron Cross” wipeout he took at Mavs, 20 years ago today. Take a minute and click over to Jay’s Encyclopedia of Surfing entry and watch the clip. I would be stressed getting pitched like that […]

Godspeed, Travis Logie

The Tour says goodbye

“I almost felt more sorry for the guy I beat than I was stoked for winning,” Travis Logie told the ASP last month when he announced his decision to retire. It’s just that sort of camaraderie, built over 10 years on Tour, that was on display when he was carried up the beach at Pipe […]

Marin County surf camp hosts Sunnydale inner city crew

The past few years, Ian Glover and the rest of the crew at Marin County’s Big Dog Surf Camp (with help from San Francisco shaper Tim Gras and the TURF Community Development organization) have spent a day sharing the surf with kids from Sunnydale—one of San Francisco’s most violent housing projects.

Greening the Triple Crown

Curbing that surf contest waste

When thousands of visitors descend on a surf contest site, they leave behind a ton of trash in their wake.
