Free Solo Alex Honnold – El Sendero Luminoso

Friday, February 28th, 2014

I know we’re a paddle site but we’ve decided to throw whatever outdoor we think is killer in our WOW category. This quadcopter footage of  Alex Honnold free soloing El Sendero Luminoso in Mexico is basically insane, not only because it probably the most technically challenging free solo in history and if you falls he’s dead, but also for it’s beauty!

934 The Movie – Mullaghmore and Hurcules

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

The huge storms that broke off the East Coast of the US have been battering the UK and Ireland with insane surf. This particular storm, brought into our living rooms by the Northcore boys, dropped down the 934mb in the first week of January 2014. Unofficially dubbed Hurcules, this angry monstrosity slammed Mullaghmore head in County Sligo, Ireland and in the tense moments before the collective tow session go button was pressed Nortcore captured some of the riders thoughts on what it feels like before setting out to tackle one of the planets heaviest waves.

Owen Wright Extraordinaire

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Owen right’s professional surfing career came to an abrupt halt at the Rip Curl Pro at Victoria’s Bells Beach last April. A disc injury not only forced the world No. 10 to withdraw from the competition but from the sport completely while he worked on his recovery.

Back in the water for the first time in November, Wright says he’s confident he’ll be fully fit for the Quiksilver Pro that kicks off on the Gold Coast next weekend. Here is his story!

Some Serious Bodyboard Shacks

Monday, February 24th, 2014

The thing about bodyboarding is that you can surf these slabby waves that are mostly out of the realm of all but the best surfers, and that means the choices are pretty wide , the barrels deep and consequences less. This means they log more time in the tube than any surfer but still surfers refuse to “slum” – Spongers unanimously could give a fuck and this proves why!

Garrett McNamara’s Mercedes Designed Tow Board

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Big wave promoter G-MAC has taken the art of surfboard design to the car makers. I’m guessing the designers at Stuttgart have zero experience designing surfboards but obviously have deep pockets and enough technology know-how to make something out of nothing. These type of gratuitous marketing stunts using the Surfer lifestyle have being going on since the 60’s, and may very well have a positive impact for the Mercedes brand at the expensive of surfing in general. There are always more than enough surfers willing to take these types of one-off sponsorships that benefit them but do little for the promotion of surfing as a whole. It’s about time Mercedes stepped up and sponsored The Big Wave World Tour versus taking the cheap approach. Good luck to Macka who is stoked making a few bob doing what he loves but there is a bigger picture to consider.

Kiting – Red Bull King of the Air 2014

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

World’s kiteboarding elite and spectators alike gathered at Cape Town’s Big Bay where Naish’s Kevin Langeree kited his heart out to take the title of 2014 Red Bull King of the Air. For the second year in a row, Cape Town’s Big Bay played host to 24 of the world’s best kiteboarders as they went head-to-head in a unique ‘flag out’ competition format in front of a crowd reaching well over 12,000 heads. Judged on height, creativity and style, the final was set with three Dutchmen and a South African. From the start, Kevin and his Naish Torch were in a class of their own with jumps consistently over double-kite high all while busting out board offs and plenty of spins mid-air. On some airs he was travelling 200m down the beach and seemed to hang in the air forever! In the end, the judges went with Kevin’s immense jumps and massive hang time, which he backed up with a couple of powerful, jaw dropping mega loops.

2013 Paris SUP Crossing

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

The event is a part of the Paris boat show and is organised by the crazy French man Dider Laffete who organizes most of the high profile European events (Oleron, Bilbao and La Torche). There are two parts of the event – the big city race and the pool one design man-on-man racing. Both contribute to an overall result. The 12 km city race starts near the old Citeron factory on the east side of Paris and takes in a loop of Notre Dame. It then continues on past the Eiffle Tower and finishes near the Microsoft Building at the Port de Versailles. All of this at 7 o clock in the morning!

Kepa Acero Deep Indo

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Surf Nomad Kepa Acero surfs a perfect left somewhere in Indo.

“I’ve been traveling around Africa for years. It is said to be a dangerous place, that someone can rob or kidnap you. Of course, in some places, caution should be exercised, but this is everywhere, not only in Africa.
When you travel, you have to learn what you can and what you should not do. I love Africa and its people, and in my experience the only theft I’ve ever experienced has been at the hand of police and by gunpoint. In Angola, in Morocco, in Mexico, in Indonesia. They were armed with a pistol and a baton in a holster.”
