"What are you going to, a board meeting?"
Most mainstream sports personalities have a catalogue of surf knowledge that goes about as far as Kelly Slater and Laird Hamilton.

The mighty "Pororoca" tidal bore wave has gone missing
Less well-known than the Chinese river wave that the Red Bull crew loves surfing, and maybe less well known than this wave in India, the Pororoca, Amazon’s mighty tidal bore wave, is nevertheless among the world’s most impressive natural phenomena.

Instead, it’s a neoprened, canopied, key-protecting Chevy Colorado – the surf-specific Z71 – a concept collaboration nearly a year in the works by GM Motors and Hurley. “This concept
These lakes are filled of stoke

Shaper Jon Pyzel and artists Craig Stecyk and JP Olson present the President with a gift
