Meet “Deep Blue,” a 20-foot long great white who inhabits your nightmares and the ocean off the coast of Ensenada. Earlier this week Mauricio Hoyos Padilla posted to Facebook this video of a diver high-fiving the beast for some reason. I can’t stress enough how bad of an idea that is.   OK, so this

Premiere: Who Is JOB 5.0

Pipeline barrels, Supsquatch, and Poopies

Jamie O’Brien and his band of misfits are back with another season of surfing’s version of Jackass. No sense in pretending not to be excited. Be it the absolute domination that JOB holds at Pipeline, the torture that Poopies continues to endure, or the mastery of their ridiculously oversized SUP (aka Supsquatch), 5.0 should be

Air New Zealand and Gabriel Medina want you to be safe in the skies

You’ve flown on Virgin Airlines, right? You know the dance party safety video they play before takeoff? Kind of charming at first, but ingratiating by the return flight? It’s the worst.

Plenty of wipeouts and carnage to go around in Newport, folks

It’s hard to say what goes through the head of these surfers, swimmers, and spongers as they enter a crowded and chaotic Wedge lineup. Regardless, it’s quite a spectacle, and is always recommended, if not required, viewing.

Conlogue On The Rocks

Close encounters of the exposed-reef kind

Courtney Conlogue must’ve been impressed by Nikki Van Dijk’s epic tumble over the Bells bricks last year. In yesterday’s action at Bells, Conlogue milked a runner to the beach, ticked the boxes on the inside section, then leapt feet-first over oblivion, nearly skulling herself in the process.
