This is as close as a surfer will ever get to doing a hand-plant. This is also how you should surf a waist-high wave. Billy Stairmaid.

Like seeing Billy Stairmand surf? He currently sits in 4th place on the WQS so there’s a fair chance you’ll see him on the WCT next year.

Going Hammock. It’s going HAM (Hard As a Mother-vulgarity), but doing so in a relaxing atmosphere. It’s haymakers by day and piña coladas by night. It’s a difficult balance, but it’s a balance that Eric Geiselman, Billy Stairmand and Perth Standlick have mastered. They surfed their little hearts out on a recent trip to Nicaragua all for the sake of a good time. Turns out, that makes for some A+ photos and clips. Here’s a gallery of the boys going hammock — check back tomorrow for the edit.
