    I’ve grown up surfing at the famous Swamis, known for its reeling rights, beautiful cliffs, and of course – the Self Realization Fellowship (hence the name, Swamis). The SRF welcomes people of any religion, faith, or belief system to walk through the Encinitas temple’s beautiful meditation garden. The garden is intended to be a place where guests can cleanse their minds of stress and worry, while taking the time to sit and enjoy some peaceful self-reflection. Plus, there’s a pretty great view of Swamis and Boneyards – just in case you want to check the surf while meditating.

    Quick, when was the last time you saw an Adriano de Souza edit? Not ringing a bell huh? You’re forgiven. Adriano cares about two things and two things only: winning and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air The guy just really loves the enthusiasm of a young Will Smith. Back to winning though. Winning. That’s all Adriano wants to do and the only way to go about it is to surf exceptionally well. Here’s a video of steel-mouth doing just that in Indonesia. The sight of Adriano surfing without a jersey on might be about as rare as the abominable snowman, but boy is it pretty. The post…

    You’ve heard the sayings, when life gives you lemons…make lemonade, a lemonade vodka, gin & tonic, lemon bars, (usually it’s something food or beverage related). Well one of the single best mood lifters for me, is surfing. Maybe not at Malibu with 600 people on a weekend when there is a swell, but most of the time, it makes me feel better, puts things into perspective, is a stress relief, calms me down, makes me smile, and is my go to happy pill. In fact when I am feeling down, (or like lemons are belong chucked at me from all angles) 98% of the time it’s because I haven’t been…

It was the biggest ever, the best ever, the sexiest ever — you could throw any hyperbole in the world at it and nary a cynic would scowl. Folks were even comparing Newport Point to Pipe and for once, that comparison was almost agreeable. Certainly, you’ve already seen the photos so now watch SURFING’s very own clip of the swell.

Speak of his rating, is there any way that Gabriel loses the 2014 World Title? Look at the final four venues this year: Lowers, France, Portugal and Pipe. He thrives at each and every one of them of them. The only thing working against him is this bomb Kelly Slater dropped on Instagram yesterday. “On stage at the awards ceremony…Congrats are in order for @gabrielmedina and his performance…

    The little dancing diva showing off for the camera; photo by Kade Krichko A string of pink plastic nearly ruined my weekend. Our bus had turned away from the Cuban town of Trinidad, venturing instead toward the sandy peninsula and its row of colossal waterfront hotels adorned with over-nourished tropical plants and Muzak renditions of “Guantanamera.” But it was the neon bracelet that manifested my fears. Instead of spending the weekend in the historic colonial town, we would be spending it in my personal purgatory—a Cuban all-inclusive resort. Before I get jumped for being a spoiled…
  • Glastonbury, Connecticut: The accidental mountain bike town

    In the annals of the world’s best mountain bike towns, Glastonbury, Connecticut, wouldn’t make the cut. You won’t even find it in a list of great places to ride in New England. That’s because this suburb of Hartford isn’t a mountain bike town—at least on purpose. While you won’t find happy mountain bikers gracing the cover of the town’s tourism brochure (or even a town tourism brochure), Glastonbury is quietly the center of some of the best riding in southern New England. The town is bordered by a 9,000-acre state forest to the south, a 640-acre recreation area to the north,…

But air travel continues to be the fastest way to get from point A to point B—and it doesn’t have to be all bad, says Juliane Camposano.

    Summer is here, sun is shining and the weather is sweet in Maui. This is the first south swell in Hawaii filmed by my friend in a surf spot never seen from the drone’s view. The surf isn’t the best, but sure the view from above is astonishing. The swell arrived July 14th for a long lasting event letting surfers in Hawaii happy, calling sick at work, waking up early and waxing those surfboads since the end of winter.

    I know my limits, so I decided to stay on the side lines and treat the beginning of this swell as a spectator.  I hope to be a participant later in the week at a more manageable size.  See proof of the size below and in the video on Surfline.

    Desert Point Violin View from Jarred Hancox on Vimeo.I admire Mr. Hancox's use of a violin piece for a surf video, it is rather fitting.  I chose the movie above due to viewing Koa Smith's barrel footage of late - see below. Watch both, and dream of long firing tubes.  The wave below is so unbelievably clean and glassy, it is mind blowing. Both videos are like surfing tandem from the comfort of your couch.

  • Where do you put your keys?

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    22 Aug 2014 | 10:29 pm
    When paddling there's always the issue of where to put your keys.  Some may bring the key with them, storing it in a wetsuit pocket or placing it a waterproof bag tucked in their wetsuit or around their neck. Over the years, I tried different methods to store my keys on land - some successful, a few not so.  The stick it in the bush idea was a fail. I once came back after dark and took a bit find the right bush. Some place the key in the gas cap, others use those magnetic boxes to be stored under the car somewhereFor those seeking land based safe storage locations, here's a few…
  • How to Paddle Your SUP Out Over Surf Waves

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    21 Aug 2014 | 10:22 am
    Trying to figure out how to paddle a SUP out over surf waves?  Here's a few tips..- Aim directly at the incoming waves.- Gain speed in forward or surf stance using short strokes similar to a race start.- As the wave approaches - if in forward stance - put one foot back to raise the nose out of the water a bit.  Make sure both feet are on each side of the center line.  Both on the center line will be unstable. - When the wave hits your nose, squat down - but keep paddling. - When the wave crests or breaks under you board - keep paddling.  Here, many stop paddling mistaken,…

    Over the years I've managed to leave a paddle at various locations. In one case I left the paddle on the Washington coast 5 hours from my home in Seattle.  A few days ago, I once again left a paddle at a beach where I was teaching near my house. In all of the above situations the paddles were returned to me because I had my company sticker or other type of personal ID on the paddle.  The Coast Guard suggests having your ID on your boards as well in case if drifts off, or worse case you're lost and they know where to return the gear to. For instructors - having my sticker on the…
  • An Easier Way to Put Your Board on your Car

    Here's a super easy way to put your board on your car.  The method is especially helpful if you're solo and have a long or big board. Place a yoga mat on the ground to protect your board and create a non slip surface when setting the board down. See my additional car rack tips for SUPs and kayaks here.

    "I've never seen it this big""Dad, even you aren't good enough to surf these waves""Whoa, I can't believe it's so big.""I'm just glad we found parking."These were someone of the conversations taking place on the sand while The Wedge in Newport Beach put on a show for locals and tourists alike. Waves were in the 20-30ft. range and provided challenging situations for surfers and bodyboarders alike. Jamie O'Brien has since become a Wedge local and caught a couple big sets, before snapping his Catch Surfboard!By 8am, the surrounding streets and alleys closely resembled the 405 Freeway as people…
  • The Swell of The Decade?

    Chase
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    As a major south swell is schedule to arrive later tonight and peak tomorrow, surfers up and down the California coast are preparing for some major surf. Many forecasters are reporting that this will be one of the biggest swells to hit our coastline in more than a decade. Is this hype? Only time will tell.  While all of this is very exciting, it is also important to remember that the ocean is very powerful and surf conditions can change quite rapidly. Rip currents will look more like rivers and side shore currents will surely pose a challenge to swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers alike.
  • Gabriel Medina Wins the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti

    For me personally, the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti is one of my favorite stops on the WCT each year. Especially when a solid swell presents itself; something which pushes many professional surfers outside of their comfort zones. This year was no different as the waves were stellar and the top surfers really put on a show.Of course, this included some heavy wipeouts, serious injuries and crucial rescues during the peak of the swell as those in the water were dedicated to charging hard. While Teahupoo can be a punishing wave for those who ride it, it surely creates an exciting event for…

    While the Wedge in Newport Beach may have looked more like a playful and fun beach break this morning which was spitting out perfect barrels for those who ventured into the lineup, one must also remember how dangerous of a spot it really is. With heavy closeouts breaking in waist deep water, wonky backwash and unpredictable sneaker sets, the wedge is a fun, scary and hard to predict beast. The lineup was extremely crowded with local standouts like Dylan Cotton and top professionals including Jamie O'Brien; both of which were absolutely charging! All photos by Chase Miller
