Andrew Gesler Scores In Frigid New Jersey

Posted 9 hours ago

Gotta admit, with it’s shakes and bobbles, this is not the smoothest GoPro footy we’ve seen. That said, a few imperfections actually reveal some angles otherwise overlooked. Visual proof from the 14 to 20-second mark.

Diego Silva Charges Pipe

Posted 9 hours ago

Diego Silva’s got a knack for getting really barreled at Pipe. That’s not an easy thing to do when the lineup is stacked elbow to elbow. But, he finds he share, and makes ‘em count.  Notables include the slam at 1:45 and the outer reef bomb at 2:16.

Jeff Lukasik is a Freak

Posted 1 day ago

Jeff Lukasik is one of those San Clementines that’s always in the mix on the Lowers lefts, and constantly finding rampier gems around town.  While he keeps a fairly low profile, his surfing is anything but quiet. The guy throws tweaked spinners with the best of ‘em. Check the 45-second mark for visual proof.

Thiago Camarao gets really tubed

Posted 2 days ago

Here, Thiago Camarao gets considerably tubed at a wonky brown beachbreak before getting tricky on some small right points. The turns are cool and all, but it’s really all about the first half of the clip. Gotta say, too, Thiago and his mom make quite the acting duo here…

Marlon Lipke Does Mercedes Benz Commercial

Posted 3 days ago

This should have been included in our list of the most "Bizzare and Fabulous Non-Endemics in Surf." Our bad. Here we get Marlon Lipke's handsome mug promoting the Mercedes AMG-C 63 in association with Highsnobiety, a double whammy in odd partnerships.

Zoltan Torkos at it Again

Posted 4 days ago

Zoltan Torkos, the surfing’s most decorated kick-flip artist, is back at his old tricks. This time, above the lip. You can ignore the turn-to-tube combo (???) and skip to the ten-second mark. That’s where the real magic happens…

Nat Young and Pals Charge San Francisco

Posted 7 days ago

Ocean Beach is a tricky one. Big, shifty peaks waves, Stiff offshores, and lotsa rubber. That said, if you're on the good side of "right place right time," it can offer some of the best tubes California can offer. This clip is proof enough. To be completely honest, you've probably seen all of Nat's clips already, here, but there... read more

Posted 7 days ago

A handful of Cocoa Beach resident surfers, along with mayor Dave Netterstrom, are drafting plans to build the longest pier on the east coast, roughly 1,300 feet long. Different from your everyday public project, the proposed pier is partially motivated by surf. The goal? Create an entirely manmade wave reminiscent of The Wedge i... read more
