Cutback to Australia

A fresh cut of fresh cuts

Last year, we ran a charming little edit called “Cutback to California.” It featured a Japanese barber/longboard enthusiast named Karu, who traveled out to California, cut a little hair, and surfed some little waves. This time Karu hit the Australian shore, scissors and log in tow. He even got to give Mark Richards a trim. […]

If you’ve paid much attention to Hawaiian politics lately, you know that the island’s rural communities are in a battle against Big Ag’s experimentation with GMO crops and advanced pesticides. This battle recently caught the attention of pro surfer/filmmaker Cyrus Sutton, who’s been surf tripping from his native California to Hawaii since his teens. Lately, […]

Bethany Hamilton’s Got It

"Surfs Like A Girl" biopic in the works

Bethany Hamilton is working on a new two-part biopic called Surfs Like A Girl due out in 2015. This is good news. Her story is well-known, but her surfing could always use more screen time.

Neymar on Medina

Brazilian soccer superstar Neymar Jr. talks about what a surfing World Title would mean for Brazil

Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior—you know him as simply “Neymar,” or at least you should, because he’s a soccer genius—is one of Brazil’s most cherished sports stars. He’s also buddies with Gabriel Medina. The two play a little poker, trade snarky barbs on Instagram, and exchange jerseys, as per the unwritten rules of soccer sportsmanship. […]

Your Own Surf Paradise

Leila x Sophia

The Hurst sisters take to the Huntington surf with Life Rolls On

Get a little inspiration heading into the weekend. Sophia Hurst—sister to pro surfer Leila Hurst—was born with spina bifida, a spinal condition that causes disability. That doesn’t keep her from getting out into the water occasionally with Leila. Back in August, Sophie and Leila took part in a Life Rolls On event at the Huntington […]

Surf Craft Comes to San Diego

A look at the Surf Craft exhibition at the Mingei Museum in Balboa Park

But my dilettante ways exist independently from appreciation, and currently there’s no better place to appreciate the evolution of surfboard design than the Mingei Museum in Balboa Park, San Diego. From now until January 11, 2015 you will find a comprehensive—and in certain parts of the museum, esoteric—collection of surf vehicles put together by none other than Richard Kenvin. Spread out and suspended amongst the austere Mingei setting are paipos and spoons, asymmetricals and boogie boards, fish and stingers, Simmons twin fins and TOMO MPHs.

Lowers Loves The Kids

A cinematic tour through a history of teenagers crushing it at Lowers

As long as there have been rippable peaks at Lowers, the young have come in droves. Limber, full-of-energy teenagers more than eager enough to skip down the path, along the trail, over the tracks, across the sand, over the cobblestones, and into the lineup. Energy undiminished, they’re still ready to paddle around anyone and everyone, […]

Kolohe Wants Pizza

A Visa x Pizza Hut x Teahupoo collab

“But can Kolohe Andino really pay for pizza inside one of the heaviest waves in the world?” — Morgan Freeman, VISA commercial, 9/7/14 I think it’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves for some time now. When little Kolohe first started popping air reverses in the San Clemente shorebreak, and the sponsorship dollars did flow, […]
