California Coast in Peril

Why you should care a whole lot about a raging Coastal Commission controversy

Years and years from now, when our children look at photos of pristine Central and Northern California beaches from the ’00s, turn to us and ask, Where are all the huge hotels and parking lots and condo…condo…nimiums?, we’ll take a swallow of bourbon, inhale deeply, and while trying to hold back the rage creeping into our voice,

Ken Bradshaw and the Tow-Surf Cul-de-sac

Remember Bradshaw's Biggest Wednesday Outer Logs mission? It's 18 years old, today

Remember “Biggest Wednesday”? January 28th, 1998? Ken Bradshaw whipped into the Biggest Wave Ever Surfed™ 18 years ago today, riding not only a 50-foot Outer Log Cabins behemoth, but also the crest of a tow-surfing wave that would—outside of Nazare—come crashing down in a heap of disinterest within the surf world in just a handful of

Machado x Burch x Curren

No banjos but plenty of smooth shredding in Jack Coleman's "Banjo Strings"

Jack Coleman’s been slinging vids for Mollusk for a while now, and they’re always an easy downshift from the usual slasher-flick fare that saturates surf media. In Coleman’s newest, we get Rob Machado, Ryan Burch (profiled in our current issue), and Tom Curren, and…well, actually, that should be enough right there.

Shane Dorian’s Two-piece Jigsaw Board

Huge Jaws? Try a board built from two blanks pieced together

Big-wave surfers are typically reluctant to test out radically new board designs in life-threatening surf. Perfectly understandable, I’m sure you’d agree. Bouncing head-over-heels into the trough of a 35-foot wave is the last place on earth you’d want to be second-guessing that decision to ride an assymetrical flextail in huge surf. Which is why it

“I thought I Was Gonna Be a Paraplegic”

Bede Durbidge on his life-changing Pipe wipeout

Bede Durbidge broke his pelvis on a nasty fall in the Pipe Masters this past December; it was a brutal injury that could have been life-threatening if not for quick help from lifeguards. It’ll be awhile before he’s surfing again but his spirits look pretty up in this clip from mysurf.tv.

In Praise of the Novelty Wave

Once a decade makes it all the sweeter

Well, sure, Rincon’s been firing for weeks on end, Blacks has been gobbling up 8’0″s like candy, and [REDACTED] near San Diego has gone mental this El Niño-fueled winter. But you know what’s even more rare? Piddly peelers sneaking underneath fishing piers hidden way back in normally placid bays. Perfect little tubes rifling next to harbormouth
