    Next time you see something beautiful, or have one of those pulls on your heartstrings moments, I want to dare you to do something. Soak that moment in, and take a mental picture first. Because mental pictures are always the best pictures. Always. They have smells, sounds, emotions and touch. They are an image in your mind of the sunset with the smell of a sea breeze, the sound of the waves, and the feeling of holding someone’s hand while laying your head on their shoulder with your feet in the sand. And the best part? They are only yours. For me, one of my favorite mental pictures is of my…

In one particular parable called The Madman, Gibran writes about the day a thieve stole his masks. At first, he was pissed. Like livid. So he ran through the streets looking for that hell-sent thieve with his masks. But as he ran, he writes, “The sun kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I cried, ‘Blessed, blessed are the…

    Enter Sandman. Photo by Red Bull Racing Getting to the beach has never been easier after Australia’s Holden Cars (makers of the Pontiac GTO and Chevy SS) and Red Bull Racing teamed up to build the most insane surfer wagon. The Sandman Tribute Concept is a one-off show car built for the 40th anniversary of the Holden Sandman panel van, a legendary surfer’s car and cult classic. The original Sandman had a V8 engine and enough room to accommodate a few singlefin surfboards in the back and a comfortable bed. It was used as a mobile surf wagon by surfers for decades, and such was their…

    I can’t really complain about living in Southern California, but sometimes I do wish we were able to see the brilliant fall colors this season showcases. I decided a trip up north would take me to these falls colors and also give me an adventure fix.  So this past weekend I ventured up the coast headed north. With stops in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Cambria we made our way up the narrow roads to Big Sur! We decided to camp – which was chilly but so much fun. Once we pitched our tent we went out to explore what this amazing coastline has to offer. We stopped at McWay Falls, one…

    John John Florence, SURFING 50th Anniversary Issue. Photo: Domenic Mosqueira At the turn of the century there was no greater measure of surfing celebrity than getting a cover. Then, focus turned to getting the end-section of a Taylor Steele film. Today it’s all about how many Instagram followers you have, or so it seems. And we wonder, does the cover of SURFING still command the same attention it did before the digital age? We asked four cover connoisseurs if the taste of Pg. 1 is as bold as before.

    The official call to hold the 8th Annual Jetty Clam Jam was made early in the morning on Friday, October 17th with a surprise location change: surfers would report to Holyoke Avenue in Beach Haven at first light instead of the previously publicized Taylor Avenue.

Before sunrise on Saturday, October 18, 2014, the event staff convened on the beach to prepare for a day of surfing, music, cold clams, and good times.

It’s a dead fin whale. Looks like nobody is cleaning it up. Surfers be careful! Odour from the carcass and rotting chemicals are washed into the surf. This attracts big sharks.

    Last week was a crazy week. After surf wax melted to my dashboard, a day later while taking the car in for my weekly car wash to clean the salt off, I heard a loud POP sound.  I figured it was the already broken plastic thing on the top of my hatchback (ignore in pic), so I didn't worry.  A few hours later while getting ready for a paddle, I noticed one of my Yakima roof rack towers was broken and the bar was hanging partially over the side of the car. Uh oh. (see picture) I pulled the bar back into place then taped it to the roof rail with foil tape which I use for board…

    In the digital age, where speed and efficiency dominate, film has become more and more rare. This is especially true among surfer photographers who often fill up numerous memory cards during a surf trip and don't have the space or time to hassle with hundreds of rolls of film. In fact, I have yet to see very many surf photographers use film in the past 10 years, besides lifestyle and portrait images. Mainly because of the rapid fire capabilities that DSLR's have for action sport photo sequences which ensure that you get the best shot possible. However, the biggest drawback is that digital…

    I have been prone/knee paddling for about a year, and just recently I have been experiencing some acid reflux when I switch over to knee paddling.  This usually starts just after my second mile of paddling, and did not used to be an issue.  Have you heard of this happening, and if so, do you have any advice on how to prevent it from being an issue. It has become frustrating because it slows me down, and even stops me at times while on my training paddles, and I am training for my first Catalina Classic for the 2015 year.  I would be bummed if something like that stopped me.

However, now that summer / “peak race season” has ended, I (and I suspect many others in colder climates) also want to hit the weights a bit harder.

    Photo Credit: Flux Photography  I prone paddle several times a week and typically do about 3.5 to 4 miles per session which takes no more than 43 minutes.  My question is in regards to a tightness I feel around my left hip when I knee paddle.  I typically do 2 to 3 minutes in the knee position then drop back to prone for a minute to minute and a half. The pain doesn’t really impact my technique but it is uncomfortable and I wonder how it will impact me and my time once I start upping my distance. I don’t think it is an issue with my hip joint since I don’t have any mobility issues…

    If you are at all serious about your SUP racing you know that training when you are on vacation with the family or traveling for work can be a headache.  Lugging around your SUP while on vacation is either impossible, impractical, or a monumental pain in the ass. Moreover, renting janky boards from a local SUP shop at your destination can be an expensive endeavor that requires you to waste your vacation time driving back and forth between the rental shop. Finally, renting waterlogged boards at exorbitant hourly rates at a resort is enough to make you not want to paddle. The good news is that…

In my last 2 races (15kms flat water) after the departure I quickly reached 195+ bpm and couldn’t lower it for most of the race if I wanted to keep the pace ! At the end I did good, in my standards, top 10 in 100+ racers field. I end up in both races hitting the wall the 1h10 and struggling in the last 30mn (unable to make the difference in the final sprint,etc…) Reducing effort, aka reducing speed…yes…
