Peahi (Jaws) // 3:54

posted by / Video / January 17, 2012

When large purple blobs show on the North Pacific maps, the worlds best pay homage to Jaws — with guns in hand

Albee’s massive Peahi tube at 2:53 is one for the books

Conner + Parker Coffin // Rincon // 4:38

posted by / Video / January 17, 2012

Just what you expect from the Queen of the Coast. Crowds, long right-handers and the Coffins.

Did anyone notice Conner’s surfing got smoother as soon as Tom Curren made a cameo? Maybe it’s just the black rails.

Jordy Smith // Jeffreys Bay + Cape Town // 4:03

posted by / Video / January 16, 2012

Exactly what we expect from Jordy. Clean lines, powerful maneuvers and some big aerials.

Jimmicane, are double-grabs more acceptable if they’re 4ft+ above the lip? A big punt @ 1:23

Luke Davis // Lower Trestles // 3:16

Lowers rights and Luke “Cool Hand” Davis.

What a duo. Like Romeo and Juliette. Or spaghetti and meatballs.

He’s 15. He’s Owen’s little brother. He’s also the under 16 Aus champ

Older brother and sister have written the map, Mikey just needs to navigate it

What are you going to do now, Reef?

Forget Disneyland, the guy’s getting hitched

Ryan Carlson // Salt Creek and HB Pier // 3:11

posted by / Video / January 13, 2012

When the swell fills in on South Side, Carlson owns the peak

A boogie boarder can’t stop him. See Ryan navigate the obstacle and straight into the tube @ 2:57. It’s just too good.

Michel Bourez + Nike Europe Team // Mentawais, Indonesia // 2:16

posted by / News / January 12, 2012

The boys get acquainted real quick with square, 8ft Greenbush

Michel leads the charge — like a Spartan would. What a tube ride at 1:50.

Frederico “Kikas” Morais // Lisbon, Portugal // 2:39

We’re not exactly sure who this kid is, but he does a great job laying his board on rail

Another Tiago Pires in training?

Mitch Coleborn + Indo lefts = A perfect fit. Like your favorite pair of skinny jeans

Mitch threads the needle through one long slow-mo tube 2:38-2:55

Damien Fahrenfort // Mainland Mexico // 3:24

posted by / Video / January 10, 2012

No rumors here, just a tall South African and a Mexican point break

As a regular-footer, I’d probably trade a year of California waves for one session at this sandy right-hander. Seriously.
