Cape St. Francis vs. Kelly’s Wave Pool

The ultimate "Would You Rather"

Does the hubris of man know no bounds? Are we never satisfied with great waves? We surfed flawless, low-tide Rincon, and mid-hop during the rock dance up the beach we looked back toward the lineup and asked: “We can do better than that, right? Wave-wise?” We got tubed and tubed and tubed at Kirra, and

Freezing

A cold-water surf trip, directed by British filmmakers Rob Lockyear and Jeremy Joyce

When British filmmakers Rob Lockyear and Jeremy Joyce of Two Eyes Film slipped us a screener of their surf film/surf film parody Freezing this past November, we loved it right away. It hilariously mocked overly earnest surf film travelogues, while providing some drop-dead gorgeous shots of the Icelandic surf zone. Lockyear and Joyce have since

(Maybe) Conquer Big-Wave Fears in One Hour!

"Brainspot" your way to the Mavericks Bowl

No better fix than a quick fix, amirite? Who wants to learn to overcome fears with plodding care? I sure as hell don’t. We’ve got a limited number of trips around the sun here, so spending years working up the courage to confront pit-of-the-soul terrors of man-eating waves sounds dreadfully boring. As does dropping good

Soldiering On

When duty called in Afghanistan, Captain Nate Dinger took his love of shaping with him

If most surfers learned that they were about to be sent to a landlocked, militarized war zone, their first thoughts would likely lie somewhere along a spectrum of disbelief, with “Oh shit” on one side and “There must be a way to get out of this” on the other. Missing surf because of a regular

Big Wednesday: Any Good?

Ranking the coming-of-age tale on the 38th anniversary of its release

Big Wednesday came out 38 years ago this week. Which makes it old enough to contemplate scheduling its first colonoscopy, gnash its teeth in worry over its roller-coastering 401k, and finally put the last of its sub-6’0″ shortboards out to the Craigslist pasture. It’s also a nice, easy, jumping-off point for a post about Big

Coastal Commission Chairman Holds Shady Meetings

Steve Kinsey will likely sit out Banning Ranch vote after "forgetting" meetings with developers

Remember a couple months back when members of the California Coastal Commission (CCC), in a thinly-veiled power grab by influential developers (allegedly), voted to oust their longtime executive director and champion of the environment, Charles Lester? If you watched the live feed of the hearings that day, you may remember a Larry Bird lookalike running
