CLIP OF THE WEEK: Dane and Conner I’m not really sure when it happened, but sometime over the last year or so, Dane became the new Tom Curren. A bit reclusive, maybe the best surfer in the world, and just cooly strange. Their surfing is more similar than ever too. At points in this clip, if […]

CLIP OF THE WEEK: Benji Brand, Namibia If I added up all the tube time I’ve ever watched—just watched, mind you, not actually lived in real life—it still wouldn’t equal the ridiculous length of this bit of video game-level tuberiding.
