Kelly Slater Beats Parkinson To Win Hurley Pro

September 21st, 2012 by Adam

Kelly Slater wins the 2012 Hurley Pro at Trestles and claims his 50th WCT event win. Not only are his 11 ASP world titles a world record. He now has a record 50 ASP WCT tour event wins. That’s pretty amazing for the 40 year old!

Slater knocked off Parko and claimed the $105,000 yesterday. This is the 5th time Slater has won the Hurley Pro. This win moves Slats into 3rd place overall only behind Parko and Fanning. There are only 4 WCT events remaining and the Quiksilver Pro France is the next event. The event runs Sept 28-Oct 8.

Foam’s Up?

September 16th, 2012 by Adam

Take a look at these surfers as they catch a ride on the surf foam. Literally, surfing on the foam. The foam was caused by flood waters off the coast of New Zealand. There were 3 surfers out in this polluted surf catching the swell from the passing storm. I wonder what kind of illnesses these guys received?

Photographer, Chris Garden, caught this spectacle as the waves and polluted  flood waters met. I guess the surf must have been really worth it.

Surfer Sues Channel Islands Surfboards

August 28th, 2011 by Adam

Check out this “surfer,” Tom Gregg, who is filing a lawsuit against Channel Island Surfboards. Gregg suffered a “deep gash” on his right leg when he wiped out off the coast of France in 2009 and is now filing a lawsuit. “The surfboard, fins and their component parts were unsafe for their intended use,” Gregg said in the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

I hope this guy is landlocked somewhere far, far away from any of our waves.

Occy On Dancing With The Stars

May 16th, 2011 by Adam

Check out this hilarious video of Occy on the Australian Dancing with the Stars show. Doesn’t the dancer in the video remind you of the little Occy in the movie, North Shore?? Haha, he’s just as bad on Dancing with the Stars as Rick Kane was in the Arizona wave pool! Don’t shred so bad brah, you break your stick. Really, props to the movie North Shore. That was and still is a classic surf movie. It’s a “must have” in your surf movie vault.
