Slade prestwich: South Africa

Posted 11 days ago, by STABmag

They grow em big in Africa! A load of red meat and an endless supply of righthand point breaks teach 'em how to wet the rail the right way. Remember the Volcom Fiji Pro last year? Slade took out the world's best juniors for a quick $20k. Enough Rands to be the prince of South Africa. He also took out Mr Reynolds in the Australi... read more

Kelly Slater, Rincon

Posted 15 days ago, by STABmag

This is Kelly Slater wearing Quiksilver wetsuits when he was still contractually-obligated to.

And, a question. What kind of rubber will KS now wear? No one does wetsuits quite like a surf co. Who really does make the best suits in the world?

Cote’s Cube.

Posted 17 days ago, by STABmag

Majority of you might give Cote a lot of heat but the 4’11 californian has some serious charisma. He keeps the fun in surfing and we need more people like him the game. In this edition of Cote’s Cube he grabs Sherm and Damo Hobgood to give us the inside scoop on Margaret River and why its comparable to a fungus.

Two days ago in Northern NSW

Posted 22 days ago, by STABmag

Warm water and chunky little reefs are so rare. Slabs and full suits are just so boring. This is a northern NSW version that currently has too much sand sitting off the end, causing difficulty rides. Eli Olson, Kelly Slater, Dean Morrison and Koa Rothman have a swing all the same. And, check the last wave of Kelly. The gent sure... read more
