Posted 08 Aug 2012

“The 2012 Rip Curl Cup Invitational at Padang Padang could be ON in the next 24 hours,” says Rip Curl. “A large Indian Ocean groundswell is currently tracking towards Bali, and contest directors are targeting a potential Thursday morning (August 9) start to the Ultimate Tuberiding Contest.”

Welcome to Cabo Blanca, Peru, during the Billabong event held there this year. And, cut to some very silky sounds. This perhaps isn’t so much amp-up video as it is zone-out, but it’s still enjoyable on some kinda level.

Rob Machado in Peru

Posted 4 days ago

Rob has traveled as much as anyone. This time, he hits Lima, Peru, for a couple small wave sessions with Hurley’s Peruvian team, featuring Martin Jeri, Alonso Correa, Gianni Porcari and Andres Echecopar. A couple more clips of the illusive Rob would be nice, but we’ll take what we can get.
