From Pipe, to an outer reef, to the hospital.

Alex Gray sees it simply as a good day of work and we applaud his efforts

Owen Wright // Pipeline // 2:25

Owen “Avatar” Wright discusses his best Hawaii season to date

Double-grab aerials have been fading away — for good reason. Owen implements double-hand stalls and gets deeper in the tube. Jimmicane, what’s your stance here?

Dane Reynolds // Rincon // 2:29

Ever wondered what Dane would have surfed like if he was born in the early 60s?

This is it, no questions about it. Dane on a single-fin shaped by Alex Knost

Everything you’d want from a North Shore edit: big barrels, solid shredding and well-chosen and properly-placed female cameos

Sancho gets shacked silly

What a dreamy setup for all of us regular-footers out there!

Nate Yeomans // California, pre Volcom Pipe Pro // 2:38

posted by / Video / February 4, 2012

How did Nate warm up for the Volcom Pipe Pro? A proper barber shop shave (the mustache heard around the world), a grovel session at T street (on a fish) and a few head high barreling lefts (not exactly like Pipe).

CJ signs with TWLOHA — a brand dedicated to hope and help

…and CJ is rewarded with pumping surf in CR

It’s always been a family affair. Mason calls this flick, “Dads Are BarrelKillaz”

We would have to agree. Mike clocks some serious tube time on his opening wave
