Big Wave Bianca

Bianca Valenti on being a woman in big-wave lineups

Ocean Beach, San Francisco, can assume the mood of about a million different surf breaks—sometimes all within the same hour—depending on swell, tides, wind, or the particular malevolence of your God that day.

Iceland Aces

The two Noahs—Wegrich and Cohen—pick and choose Iceland's best corners

Nobody really knows how Iceland got its name. Some think it was called that to fool people into thinking it was a frozen wasteland, when really, it’s not so bad. Others say that one of the first Nordic explorers to find the place showed up in the summer, thought it was great, then winter came […]

The Green Wave

Will the eco-friendly surfboard ever expand beyond the niche market?
