Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of January 7

| posted on January 11, 2013

Happy New Year! Last year was filled with strangeness. And this year is already shaping up to be just as weird. Lucky us.

Surf on a Camel
You know when you’re on a camel, and you really want to get a good workout in? Well, this girl shows you how.

Babes with Beards
Salty Beards has revived the bearded ladies of surfing. Sexy.

Craig Anderson, Looking Real Uncomfortable
So pretty in his turban.

Phantom Trunks for $12!
Well, not anymore. Back in August, Hurley sued Old Navy for copying their high-end Phantom trunks (which Old Navy sold for $12). But this week it was announced that Hurley has dropped the suit after Old Navy agreed to stop selling the trunks. No $12 Phantoms for you.

Healey (and Roberta) Are Nuts
Exhibit 329. Note the prop at 5:17.

So Is Chuck Patterson
Big-wave skiing. Because that is a good idea.

The Best Promotional Hat Ever Created

Slater, Turning Dreams Into Reality
If the Kelly Slater Wave Pool looks familiar, it’s probably because it’s an almost exact replica of the cartoon wave pool that appeared in a Wilbur Kookmeyer cartoon in SURFER in January 1989. That Wilbur, so forward-thinking.

Surf Stars Take Other Sports Stars Surfing
Ian Walsh took golfer Rickie Fowler surfing on Maui. Ricky described his day by saying, “36 yesterday, an early 18 this morning, and then finished with an afternoon barrel.”
