It's time for a "Six Degrees of Kelly Slater" celebrity flow chart
Bowhunting. Pearl Jam. Huey Lewis. David Hasselhoff. Bono. Don Cheadle. This is the first time in the history of the English language that those names were all strung together like that. Their common thread is Robert Kelly Slater. In this surprisingly charming video interview for USA Today‘s “For the Win,” Kelly Slater brushes aside the
The Floridian turns a mediocre section into anything but
Big spins aren’t the most beloved of skateboard tricks, but they do have a place in a skater’s repertoire. In surfing, however, the debate continues as to whether or not they should be glorified. Just like a pop shuvit, the surfer has to ride out switch stance, which generally means a leash on the front
A fresh perspective of the dirty ol' Wedge
While watching the neck-breaking peaks of The Wedge detonate on nearly dry sand will never get old, this drone clip of the infamous Newport lineup adds an entirely different perspective. Granted, the surfing (and bodyboarding) may not be at the highest level, but the angle and clarity of the clip is sure to keep you
Easily the best of his kind
Kama, the world’s best surfing pig, is at it again. This time with his very own GoPro clip. Turns out Kama isn’t a fan of small waves, which makes sense because after all, he is Hawaiian. According to his owner, Kai Holt, Kama’s technique has improved so much so that when he starts to pearl
Nørway's got all kinda wåves
If you skip ahead to about the 2:00 mark, you will see some Scandinavian dudes, including famous snowboarder Terje Håkonsen, bounce around on a fun-looking standing wave at a river in Norway with a name that is probably impossible to spell. River surfing looks hard.
Seal pup hangs with the boys in England
Usually when a seal jumps out of the water and up onto a surfboard, it’s been chased up there by ten feet of hungry shark and it’s clinging onto anything for dear life. This little guy though, he’s just looking for some bro time. Doesn’t even care that these guys are on longboard pop outs.
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. Unless, of course, you’re Kelly Slater. In which case, you jump on an old board (notice the sticker?), head to a lake in
HBPD made the arrest following comments the 16-year-old made on social media
Police seized a handgun, a shotgun and electronic devices from the boy’s home.
Terrifying airdrop to barrel to claim
This Nias video is a little bit dark, so what you can’t see is the panicked moment mid-drop when Derham’s heart literally beats out of his chest, then he grabs it out of midair, then stuffs it back into his body. After that, Derham’s rail bites, he locks into a screamer, and comes flying
