Kelly Slater Has Feelings

New Slater song plumbs the emotional depths

This is what happens when you’re a hugely famous person like Kelly Slater. You have the opportunity to record music randomly, in this case with badasses like Karina Zeviani of Nouvelle Vague (the silky voice behind awesome Joy Division covers like this), and then have the whole Internet sit in judgment after you’ve set your […]

Slow-Motion Carnage at The Wedge

Oh wipeouts, why must you be so enjoyable to watch?

It’s a foolproof formula. Take some super HD footage of The Wedge at its most menacing and slow it down so that every detail of every wave is seen in full. And oh, the glorious wipeouts! They’ll have you simultaneously laughing and crying at their absurdity. Just imagine pulling back on a 20-foot wave that […]

Kicked Out at Teahupoo

Highlights of accidents from the Teahupoo Offramp

Let’s start by saying that we know it’s hard—nay, impossible—to play it cool when you’ve just exited a perfect 10-foot barrel at Teahupoo. We get it. But what we saw in the realm of kickouts at the Billabong Pro Tahiti was nearly as entertaining as the tubes themselves. Whether it was Kelly Slater awkwardly jumping […]

Sandspit’s Wave of the Swell

Hurricane Marie even snuck swell into Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara in the summer is normally a desolate wasteland. Well, for surf anyway. Not this week. Not with Hurricane Marie’s sexy SE swell direction wrapping into SoCal, charming her way past the Channel Islands, slipping surf underneath their typical summertime stonewalling. Local Gabe Venturelli (Ed’s Note: the surfer’s name was unknown at first) scored […]

Drone Footage of Malibu

This is how you shoot the pier

Sorry, Laird Hamilton. But piers are best shot without a paddle in hand, so we must say this one of Allen Sarlo takes the cake. For now. With Hurricane Marie currently blessing the California coastline with solid swell, expect to see more pier shooting and photos of waves that don’t look like they belong in […]
