Senegal Sessions

West Africa is holding

Senegal, you may remember from The Endless Summer, has some pretty good surf. In 1964, Bruce Brown and company were bummed that their hotel in Dakar was super expensive: $30 per day. Safe to say, the prices are probably higher today, but 50 years later the surf is just the same. Fun, warm, rights and […]

Ours Insanity

It's all yours, boys

Ever watch little ripples lap gently on the shore of a lake? I bet if you took a miniature camera and filmed some of the tiny wavelets as they spilled over the pebbles, you’d find some micro-sized slabs like Ours. You would totally take on a two-inch version of Ours. When it’s overhead though, like […]

Battle At Bank Vaults

Dean Morrison, Koa Rothman, and Nate Behl trade heavy barrels in the Mentawais

While FTR Films describes Bank Vaults as a “fun Mentawai righthander,” it actually leans more toward the terrifying side of the spectrum. Dean Morrison, Koa Rothman, and Nate Behl do, however, make it look oh so fun. After all, what’s not to love about tropical blue water, stand-up barrels, and open-face power carves?

Santa Cruz, From Above

Aerial footage of Kyle Buthman and Austin Smith-Ford dodging a jetty to score barrels

Some takeoffs require more commitment than others. In this clip of Santa Cruz residents Kyle Buthman and Austin Smith-Ford at one of their local breaks, hesitation isn’t an option. Unless, of course, you want to be slammed into concrete jacks. For those willing to chance the man-made dangers that also make the wave what it […]

Wedge Madness

Solid south swell brings massive barrels and closeouts to Newport Beach's most infamous wave

Never before has breaking your back, neck, legs, surfboard, bodyboard, SUP, and/or handplane, while trying to surf an unrideable closeout looked so appealing. It could be the water color, maybe the slow-mo, or the mellow jam soothing out all the chaos; but somehow, this clip makes gnarly Wedge look doable to a sane person. In […]
