Is this the ultimate fall-to-bodysurf-to-recovery ever?
If wiping out is an art, this recovery is a masterpiece of Picasso proportions. Mikey Wright, kin of World Tour stars Owen and Tyler, does what appears to be the ultimate fall-to-bodysurf-to-recovery ever. After pearling on his second turn, his board pops through the lip only to be pulled back into the wave by his […]
A small forecast calls for a creative means of preparation
When the U.S. Open of Surfing forecast calls for no larger than 3-foot faces, warming up for the event can be difficult, especially when following up an all-time swell at Jeffreys Bay.

Terrifying airdrop to barrel to claim

It could be the water color, maybe the slow-mo, or the mellow jam soothing out all the chaos; but somehow, this clip makes gnarly Wedge look doable to a sane person. In […]
Brad Domke goes XXL in the most finless way possible
Too big for a finless board. Too big to be able to maintain any kind of control with that sort of speed. Too easy. I mean, Lord knows how many times Domke was massively ruined during this session, but that ride looked like cake. For him. But then, there are his hands.

Pumping waves left unridden as a great white sends surfers rushing for shore
With a building swell at J-Bay on Sunday, a great white shark cruised through the lineup and sent every single surfer rushing to shore. “The 6-foot surf was just beginning to fire,” said photographer Ted Grambeau. “About 50 surfers vacated the lineup for at least a half hour.” Dan Ross, a former World Tour surfer […]
