Dion Agius sent us a group email with a Vimeo link to a new short by Riley Blakeway, and said things like, “how rad is this!” and “Fuck riley is so goddamn good.! and Warren, he is also a genius.” Who are we to argue, really? It’s called From the Same, featuring Warren Smith and his slice of wisom.

An amazing wave at Shipsterns on Friday

Posted 13 days ago, by STABmag

Shipsterns Bluff, Tasmania's fave treasure, came to life on Friday. It was most a day mostly ruled by locals (Russell Bierke and Mark Mathews were also in the mix) and this wave here is one of the better you'll have seen ridden out there. Sure, it's a tow but the nerve of Benn Richardson to hold his line as steps rained from the... read more
