The proof is in the body slam
Two stand up paddlers went surfing in Los Angeles the other day when a dolphin surfing a wave decided to body slam straight into the SUPer that was attempting to get the clip. Well, he definitely got the clip. While in actuality the dolphin was probably just confused, we’re not counting out the idea that
When will he stop?
Professional skimboarder Brad Domke took his frictionless approach to the South Pacific’s “End of the Road” and towed into a solid wave at Teahupoo. While he didn’t win Ride of the Year at last year’s XXL Awards, this is definitely a sign that he’s not easing up on his pursuit of capturing some sort of
Kelly Slater, an artisanal marshmallow, and Jason Statham walk into a bar...
This is the difference between Kelly Slater and the rest of the surf world. When Noa Deane and Creed McTaggart eventually drift away from their sponsors to start their own line of tattered baseball tees and black hightops, their release party will be attended by the Metal Neck crew, Al Knost, breathtakingly thin girls slathered
Novelty is as novelty does
Ever had the wild thought of riding a wave while waiting at the airport to catch your next flight? Yeah, me neither. Sounds like a highdea that would never reach fruition. Well, at least that’s what I thought before watching this video. What you have here is a standing wave in the middle of the
In response to his shark dance at J-Bay
Hear it from the mouth of White Lightning yourself, yum yum yellow is out and a shark-repellant paint job with striking blue is in. Superstitious? No. Predicting another attack? No. But by all means, when you get attacked by a monstrous shark you take every precaution moving forward.
Jamie O'Brien lights himself on fire and gets tubed in Tahiti
Part surfer, part stuntman, Jamie O’Brien never fails to come up with new and terrifying ways to nearly kill himself in the ocean. For the latest episode of his web series, J.O.B. teamed up with a Hollywood stunt coordinator to create a flame-retardant wetsuit, light himself on fire, and pull into a barrel at Teahupoo.
...and here's what bossman Kelly Slater had to say
Remember Outerknown? When Kelly Slater left long-time sponsor Quiksilver this past year, he joined forces with Kering Group, owners of plenty, including Volcom and Gucci. Around this same time, The King let it be known that he would be creating a sustainable clothing brand he dubbed “Outerknown.” Any real talk from Slater about Outerknown has
"Without you, I am nothing."
Intense, extreme, and radical: three words to describe the new Samsung/WSL video, though probably not in the way you might be thinking. The production is magnificent, upholding to the highest levels of cinematic practice, and the ad stars a slough of top surf professionals. But the extremity of the piece, well it’s just not something
Straight from the mouth of CEO Paul Speaker
A little context: Above, World Surf League CEO Paul Speaker sits down with Stuart Varney, a cheeky British TV anchor prone to interruption and very, very afraid of sharks. The two discuss the current state of the WSL during a segment that for some reason asks, “Can surfing beat football?” We didn’t get an answer
I'll be damned, that floater was dapper
It was only a few months ago that Quiksilver Japan introduced the first actual wet suit, and for most of us it seemed like more of a novelty and a joke than something anyone would actually purchase. Welp, we were wrong. If you visit Quik’s Japanese site, you’ll see that all of their true wet-“suits”
