    Let me start by stating this: I love watching the world’s best surf, and we’re incredibly lucky to be able to see guys like Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning, and John John Florence duke it out halfway across the world, live from the comforts of home. That said, there were a few things about the ASP World Tour‘s Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach that rubbed me the wrong way. Jordy Smith got robbed In need of a 9.97 to overtake Julian Wilson in their Round 5 clash, Jordy Smith left everything on the line on his last wave. He kicked it off with the biggest and best turn of the event, followed it up…

    Posted By: Pete Benda on Apr 21, 2014 When learning any new longboard skill or technique, I strongly recommend taking some time to study how other longboarders flex their decks. Even a less-experienced rider can teach us a great deal about how to control a board or land a creative new trick. Unfortunately, longboarding isn’t quite as popular as baseball and finding other local riders isn’t always easy, but thanks to the wondrous high-definition magic of the Internet, you can easily study longboarders of all kinds in order to perfect your shred or just vicariously enjoy a smooth…

    After a long week at the contest, we headed down the coast to explore some beautiful beaches and surf spots. Driving along the Ecuadorian coastline is like nothing I have ever done before. All the homes are made mostly of bamboo and every home has at least one hammock hanging out front. When we reached our destination, Montañita, I fell in love with everything around me. The dirt roads are lined with bamboo beach shacks complete with surfboards and hammocks out front. There were about five different fruit stands selling fresh cut coconuts and every restaurant had bamboo benches and big…

    Yago Dora and Mitch Coleborn are straight-shooters. They need not spin in order to impress. They will, however, grab for some extra mackerel. Here are two airs from two of Volcom’s finest. Yago, the tiger, lofts a stalefish into the wind at Rocky Point. He rolls down the windows a bit on the descent, but who can blame him? See how high he was? Mitch also goes left, and he floats a slob. Although his grab is a bit easier than Yago’s, Mitch tweaks it a bit more and finishes as smooth as your mother’s favorite merlot. This one’s up for grabs… Want to see more? These…

      As we leave winter in the dust, we need to get serious about surfing. It's time to re-group, dig out from the snow, return that wetsuit to the garage, and get connected with the essence of freedom and fun. Winter is great to test your endurance and commitment to the sport, but you've answered the questions as to how far you will go to get a few waves. Are you a lifer? Are you willing to hurt and suffer for the possibility of some good waves? Heck yeah! And now we can relax and get into a groove and slide into a pair of baggies and enjoy the ride. So let's figure some things out and get…
  • Does Surfing "Take" Too Much?

    18 Apr 2014 | 12:49 am
    The world of surfing is one based on taking. We take a ride to the beach where we greedily take as many waves as we can. Sometimes we take a flight on which we take our boards and ipods and computers to another country and take waves from the locals and take pictures and videos of each other so we can take them back home and brag about how we "owned it."...Read Full Post

    Western Australia is delivering. The swell has been meaty and challenging and offering high performance opportunities for both powerful carving and aerial wizardry. For a wave that traditionally favors the no nonsense rail carving of guys like Tom Carroll, Margaret River has morphed under shifting swell and migrating wind directions, but has also played both the spoiler and supporter of incredible performances from the likes of John Florence, Kelly Slater, Gabriel Medina, C.J.

    The surf world forever marvels at the future of our sport. Board materials and fin configurations are quickly cataloged as "old" the minute something new is unveiled. Surfers who inhabited the excitement of eminent greatness are shuffled back to haunt their home breaks as soon as the media decides they aren't worth the video time, soundtrack, or magazine space. Sure, all sports have this problem, but surfing does very little to honor its forefathers (and mothers) save for precious few memorial contests here and there while small contingents of youngsters jump around in beaver tails (see…

    The 2014 Quiksilver Pro held at Snapper Rocks in Coolangata, Australia showed all the familiar elements we've come to expect from the first stop on the ASP Tour: long rippable point waves, Taj Burrow losing in the semis, and Parko in the final. It was all to plan...except one small thing. One small, goofy foot thing named Gabriel Medina. His approach to the winding walls at Snapper tell a tale of a surfer who has matured, his normally quick slash aerial display toned down to fit the vertical point peaks. But it wasn't just the more controlled and precise attack by the goofy foot Brazilian but…

    15 Apr 2014 | 9:51 am
    Professional surfers get the most out of every ride – even those that end in a less than graceful way. The secret lies in knowing how to wipe out properly and then taking a moment to evaluate mistakes. The Pros understand that a gnarly wipe out is part of the learning process. Hawaiian big-wave surfer Kohl Christenson explains, “I always figure that I’m going to eat it or get caught inside at least once during a big-wave session. If I don’t then I feel like I got really lucky or I wasn’t pushing it hard enough.” Avoid injuries and get back on your board faster with…

If you catch yourself nose diving while surfing in front of the wave, there’s a good chance you’re about to wipe out. This is caused by laying too far forward on the board. Surfers call this “pearling.” Ever wonder where this term came from? Pearling refers to a near-ancient art of “Pearl Diving”. A very dangerous technique that required pearl hunters jumping out of a ship and diving nearly 100 feet down in a single breath! When surfers pearl during a wipe out, it…

    Jon Wegener dropped off this clean 9'6" the other day. He calls it the "Gabezilla" model. 9'6" X 23 1/4" X 2 9/16"Jon sez, A highly tuned longboard for noseriding. It has a thinned out nose and tail to keep the board flexing, which prevents slipping out of steep sections. Also a long deep concave in the nose adds suction to add seconds onto each noseride.Come check it out in the shop or grab it online:clicky clicky for surfboard *Wegener tee's back in stock!clicky clicky for t-shirt Surfy Surfy Online Store!

    Posted By: Pete Benda on Apr 21, 2014 When learning any new longboard skill or technique, I strongly recommend taking some time to study how other longboarders flex their decks. Even a less-experienced rider can teach us a great deal about how to control a board or land a creative new trick. Unfortunately, longboarding isn’t quite as popular as baseball and finding other local riders isn’t always easy, but thanks to the wondrous high-definition magic of the Internet, you can easily study longboarders of all kinds in order to perfect your shred or just vicariously enjoy a smooth…

    Posted By: Pete Benda on Apr 18, 2014 While most people wouldn’t even think to ride a bicycle without brakes, those of us who love longboarding have no other option but to learn some more “creative” methods for slowing down. The most useful and basic of these methods are carving and sliding, both of which involve using natural physics and friction to reduce speed and the likelihood of a nasty wipeout. I recommend to all new riders to get a firm grasp on these techniques before attempting to bomb any serious hills and studying the local crowd or Internet videos to perfect the…

    tomo surfboards from hamish mackenzie on Vimeo.I believe I have posted this video before.  Regardless, it is worth watching again.  I can not get over the speed, ease of direction change, and sheer radicalness of their surfing on these boards.  I see it as the most progressive surfing out there.  Their ability to generate speed and place the board wherever they like, all while maintaining fluid style is astounding.  Stuey Kennedy should be in the top 5 on the WCT.  Daniel Thompson should be heralded as the most forward thinking shortboard designer of his day.

  • 5 Tips for Paddling a SUP Prone Upwind

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:20 pm
    Need to get upwind?  Every one's so busy downwinding they rarely think about getting upwind until they need to.  Many of the downwinders here in the Pacific NW reverse direction forcing paddlers to either slog it out to the the finish upwind, or downwind it back to their starting point. In my basic classes, the first thing I teach is how to paddle upwind by sitting or prone paddling. Then we work on standing up.  Someone once told me 'be a man, stand up.'  That only works sometimes, in others you'll be much less of a man when you end up on the news after you got blown far…

Because little everyday things add up and take a toll on the earth. Just take a moment to consider that 200 billion plastic water bottles are bought every year and 80% of these 1 time use bottles end up in landfills. Talk a problem! That's why I no longer buy single use water bottles. Sure, their are plenty of contributing factors of pollution and…

    I’m in Vancouver (Canada) and wondering if you have any guidance on prone paddling in water this temperature. Is it done much? Recommendations on board type? Wetsuit advice? Todd, Vancouver (Canada) Yes. Prone paddling is done at these temperatures but then again people ride bikes across the South Pole too. Just kidding. I have padded in water as low as 45 degrees. It is less fun than paddling in 60 degree water but I would rather paddle than not paddle so lets get you outfitted. As far as your board goes – if you have a choice your best bet may be to get on an unlimited board.

    Would you offer some advice – or write a post  on the best race equipment for female riders? I have heard that a lot of manufacturers are starting to design equipment specifically for smaller body types. Jenn, whereabouts unknown Hey – thanks for the question. This is actually something that we tackled way back in the early days when there was essentially zero in the way of race boards for women. As a general rule, there is really no such thing as a women specific race board. The problem, however, is that many of the race boards on the market don’t work all that well for women.

  • Larger fins for prone paddle boards?

    29 Mar 2014 | 8:12 am
    Tradition in the prone paddleboarding suggests that more experienced paddlers use smaller fins. The thinking goes that larger fins are a weight liability and do not offer significant benefits to the experienced paddler.  Many prone paddleboarders do not give fins much consideration. The new series of NCP prone paddleboard fins is a somewhat contrarian approach to fin selection for the prone paddleboarder.  This month NCP  is releasing a set of 9 fins aimed to offer prone paddleboarders improved performance in varying ocean conditions. We recently discussed fin selection with Brian…
