The Week in Webclips

The best videos of the week, all in one place

CLIP OF THE WEEK: Chicken Soup Great song, fun waves, some slo-mo cows, and Ozzie Wright doing his thing on a board that looked like it was not at all on the same page as its rider. No matter. Ozzie wrestles that pink/hideous green plank into submission, until about the 2:24 mark, when the board, […]

Noosa From Above

A heavenly view of longboard heaven

At first, Noosa from above looks like a big tranquil lake. A big tranquil lake with a perfect right peeling crisply along a tree-lined shore. If you want a tutorial on proper footwork for walking the nose, this is your video. Seriously, this might be the most useful application of a drone yet.

Chicken Soup

Ozzie Wright surfs like a maniac

Ozzie Wright can conjure bat rays from the deep. I know, because I’ve seen it with my own eyes. And you will too after watching this clip. At the :39 second mark, BOOM, bat rays and barrels. If for no other reason than to see that, watch this clip. Although there are many, many other […]

Adriano Hearts Indonesia

Adriano de Souza frolicking tropically

Adriano de Souza has cracked the Indo code of scoring without the endless crowds of frothers. Every clip of Adriano in the Mentawais is him and like two buddies. Tops. Often, it’s just Senhor de Souza all by his lonesome happily cracking the top of a perfect peeler in textbook fashion. He’s sitting 7th right […]

Hurricane Marie edition

CLIP OF THE WEEK: Good Morning Marie If, like me, you watched all this Marie madness from fog-bound and relatively flat Northern California, it can be hard to believe that all those waves we were seeing were breaking south of Point Conception.

Sandspit’s Wave of the Swell

Hurricane Marie even snuck swell into Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara in the summer is normally a desolate wasteland. Well, for surf anyway. Not this week. Not with Hurricane Marie’s sexy SE swell direction wrapping into SoCal, charming her way past the Channel Islands, slipping surf underneath their typical summertime stonewalling. Local Gabe Venturelli (Ed’s Note: the surfer’s name was unknown at first) scored […]

Laird Hamilton Shoots Malibu Pier

Yeah, the swell is hitting alright

And all is again right with the world. Used to be, a massive, once-in-a-decade swell would show up to pound a reef or sandbar somewhere, and there, swooping out of the heavens to ride the biggest wave of the day, would be Laird Hamilton, astride a futuristic tow board or some enormous surf ski contraption […]
