Toying With Teahupoo

An unreal stop-motion super session using Playmobil toys

Just when you thought the reality-defying waves of Tahiti’s famed reef couldn’t be anymore unreal, a stop motion Teahupoo video using Playmobil toys comes out. Karim Rejeb, who also made the equally awesome Perfect Holiday video, recreated a super session at the end of the road in his backyard. Between the foam balls (quite literal),

Victoria Road Trip

Jeremy Flores and John John Florence find fun waves near Bells Beach

Following a disappointing result at Bells Beach, Jeremy Flores road tripped down the coast near Victoria. Along the way, he found a super rippable righthander (0:15) and John John Florence (0:35). The closing section is epic as well: a perfectly wind-groomed peak (primarily a left barrel) with an open shoulder at the end. Well worth

The Ventura local scores warm-water wedges south of the border

Everyone loves a Mexico edit. With warm-water wedges perfectly juxtaposed by cerveza and donkey-back riding (2:39), what’s not to like? Matt McCabe opens with one of the meatiest looking lefthanders we’ve seen in a while. It’s a closeout, but he makes up for it with plenty more barrels and a massive backside reverse at the

Bird is the Word

Nine minutes of warm-water barrels and airs in Hawaii by Keala Naihe

Keala Naihe managed to keep a 9+ minute edit entirely enjoyable. From the P.O.V. and water-shot barrels to the array of blowtails and airs, there’s enough variety to keep things interesting. The second wave, in particular, is mental. Still trying to figure out how he makes the drop and powers through the multiple chandelier sections.
