Rip Curl Cup on High Alert

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.”

Y’better believe the invitational will be a really good show if it turns on. Watch the video of Owen Wright at Ulu’s to get yourself excited. Check out the site, here.

Kayak Fail.

It’s one of our guilty pleasures as surfers watching the demise of others on the rocks. Fortunately for this guy he walked away with nothing but a bruised ego.

Billy Kemper’s XXL Wipeout at Puerto Escondido

Posted 3 days ago

Y'saw Puerto Escondido light up recently, with 'Wave of the Year' entries claimed and a guy on a skimboard breaking the internet. It was all very good viewing. What you might not have seen though is this wipeout of Billy Kemper, which is not such good viewing. If you've ever wrangled some lengthy fibreglass in some even thicker ... read more

You probably saw this on Thumbwerk last week or maybe elsewhere, but here it is in higher-rez bliss. Brad Domke, planing down the face of a weekend-ruiner. That ain’t nothing to play with.

Stationary waves with size

Posted 5 days ago

Okay, while goofyfooters Cyril Inauen and Roland Hauser don't do effortless like Craig Anderson, you can't fault these gents when it comes to pioneering a new stationary wave. With this much water tearing down a flooded European river (we don't call out secret spots! Even inland!), you gotta hand it to the boys diving in from t... read more

Adam Bennetts, recent Indonesian swells.

Posted 5 days ago

Bali is sure attractive as a new home for many. It’s cheap, it’s warm and it’s wave-rich if you’re prepared to get busy. Adam Bennetts is a pro(ish) surfer and a DJ and doesn’t miss to many “swell events” around Indonesia. Here’s what he did during the last three to hit in June and July.

Outkast are in Northern NSW right now for Splendour In The Grass, in case you didn’t know. After crushing at Coachella, they’ve brought their reunion tour to Oz’s favourite three-day party. And, Three-Stacks surfs! He rides goofy! Bombs over Burleigh!
