Boat Capsizes at Jaws! Shark at Snapper!
20-mile wave!

If the star of "Surfer, Dude" can go on to win an Oscar, anything is possible.

Man Overboard

Might want to stay on land next time.

And in the Gray Jersey

A great white shark was caught just around the bend from the Quik and Roxy pro event site.

20-mile Bore of a Wave

Can’t tell if they hold hands (3:40) as a sign of affection or out of necessity from riding for so damn long.

3-minute Wave

Still a bore, but definitely less boring. Skip to 10:45

Laird’s Foot Care

Mr. Hamilton was kind enough to do a How To on foot care for Men’s Journal, giving us such gems as “the thicker the soles – the weaker you’re making yourself.”

Food Stamp Surfer Returns

Self-described “Surfer Dude” and food stamp spender took Fox News’ Jesse Watters to a San Diego strip club in an Escalade.

Surfer, Dude Wins Oscar

Six years ago, Matthew McConaughey starred in quite possibly the worst movie ever. Now he has an Oscar. Congrats on the comeback, dude.

I’ll Take Extra Salt With That

Santa Barbara restaurant patrons didn't realize they were in the Splash Zone.

Anger Fail

After losing his Round 2 heat at the Quik Pro, Jordy Smith attempted to take out his frustration on his surfboard.

Photo Bomb of the Week

Steph Gilmore and a Koala overshadowed Katy Perry’s weather-woman imitation.

Nicolas Cage Loves Surfing

The star of the best Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball parody swapped “Oscars glam for all the fun of the Quikky on the Gold Coast.” Or maybe he just wasn’t invited to the Oscars.

Random happenings in surf for the Week of March 3.

    Worth a watch…same morning as the wave breaking the restaurant window but up the coast a bit. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aHadYZw7zkw

    The tidal bore “surfers” are pretty core and I dig their sweet tricks such as “hand hold” and “leash hold crouch” but come on now…..us “surfers” at the Frisco bore have perfected radical moves like the “one hander commander” and the “backside pirate pounce”. Sometimes we even pulled off the “shocker” which usually ends with a big wet splash in the face.

    I rode the bore once but came to a halt when I got tangled with a shopping trolley. My friend took it in the nads from a traffic cone on the same day.
