“It’s a Shark. It’s a Shark. A Shark.﻿ It’s a Big-Ass Shark.”
Amazingness.

He’s At It Again
Self-proclaimed “world-class aerialist” Zoltan “The Magician” Torkos, the man who brought you the “first ever surfboard kickflip” and the “First Darkslide in Surfing,” now brings you the “First Ever Hippie Jump on a surfboard.” And a “ninja karate kick claim.” “Quotation marks.”

Hats!

Sterling Spencer, you weirdo you.

Surf Europe Tells It Like It Is
No candy-coating here. An excerpt from the intro to an Alex Knost video on Surf Europe’s website:

Martha Surfed With Laird
This did not happen this week, but you should watch it this week.

Gavin Beschen Revealed
Trippy, echoey, shreddy, chest-cam goodness.

Sal Masakela, Now With a Smaller Head!
Saw this on Twitter, knew it had to make the cut. Get it? (Sorry, so lame.)

Introducing the Taj Burrow App
The Taj Burrow app, a convenient way to “keep up to date with Taj’s news, videos, pictures and sponsors.” It also allows you to “follow [cyber-stalk] Taj as he travels around surfing the best breaks in the world.”

It’s not often in Life you get a “do over”. Well SURFER here it is on a silver platter. Bruce Irons is in rehab at Promises in Malibu. This is the location where Andy did his first rehab and went to 2 more in his quest to get clean. If you’ve spent time with Bruce you know his lifestyle and it has come to this. Don’t know if anyone at SURFER would have the balls to do this story. Considering what happened to Andy it should be done. And soon.

Don’t kid yourself, surf journalism wouldn’t dare do it

Zoltan is so sick… way ahead of the game, damn he even made my grandma interested in surfing now

• Nc

looks like a gay Ice Cube

I ask you: Wouldn’t “In the pit with MItt” be better?

How do you know Bruce is there? Links? Proof?

• the internet

Though this doesn’t conclusively prove Steve wrong, seems odd that Bruce would be surfing in Mexico the same week he went to rehab???

Zoltan sucks, you call that surfing? Stop giving this dude press immediately!

• the internet

Well, the jerks at surfer apparently won’t allow a link to the transworld site, but they have pics of Bruce surfing Mexico last week…It at least casts doubt on Mr. Briggs’ story.
