Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of February 18

| posted on February 22, 2013

‘Twas a week filled with many pretty ladies in bikinis, and a bit of other nonsense. Just a reminder, if you’ve come to Week in Review in search of “news,” “journalism,” or remotely “necessary” information, you will be terribly disappointed.

Rihanna and Makua
Rihanna spent her 25th birthday jet-skiing with Makua Rothman. The rest of the photos are quite entertaining.

Breaking News!
The surf world is abuzz with this obviously very important front-page news: Alana Blanchard and Jack Freestone are dating. Just keeping you updated. You’re welcome.

OK, You Win This Week
Surely you saw the photos of Alana in Sports Illustrated. They were lovely. Here’s a behind-the-scenes video.

More Hotness
Sage Erickson nabbed the back cover of Stab with an image from this shoot. Isn’t she just the prettiest thing?

Someone Actually Made This Shirt
Why?

“This Is Why You Never See Black People on a Surfboard” –Sherri Shepherd
The ladies of The View go “surfing.”

Kai the Surfing Hitchhiker
Kai the Hitchhiker was big news a few weeks back. He professed on the news he needed “a wetsuit and a mini-mal surfboard to surf Mavericks.” Jimmy Kimmel granted that wish after the strangest interview ever.

Perfect for Mavericks.

Dane’s Favorites
At least partly fictional.

    “Surprised at the black people and surfboards comment… Really?” – It was a quote from a black comedienne. I guess it’s okay if a black person said it…………………………………………………………..

    Bummed you guys posted the Alanack picture. Sarcastically saying it’s front page news, while still posting about it, is just as bad as actually putting it front and center. boo.

    And that shirt is funny.
