Stepping Beyond: Mark Healey

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

This video was produced in partnership with lululemon men.

Big-wave surfer and overall waterman Mark Healey is well accustomed to facing critical situations where life and death may hang in the balance. In 2006, his tow board caught an edge while whipping across the face of a wind-blown west bowl at massive Teahupo’o, handing him the wipeout of a lifetime as the whole Pacific ocean enveloped him. Afterwards, Healey was quoted as saying, “he was thankful to just be alive.” Since then he’s broken ribs, fractured a kneecap at Pipeline and ruptured an eardrum at both Pe’ahi and Dungeons in South Africa.

While most people would try to find a different hobby after sustaining the type of injuries outlined above, Healey considers each setback as a training exercise. “As I’ve gotten older my appreciation for uncomfortable situations and the ocean has definitely grown,” says Healey in the edit above. “I don’t think there’s actually growth without some discomfort. If you try to avoid it, you don’t really grow as a human. I would have to say my practice is a practice of confronting discomfort. It’s just as much in the training as it is in the act of doing these things out in the ocean.”

Healey relies on his practice of hypoxic breath training to get him through any trials he may face in the water. “With breath-holding, there’s not a human on planet earth, including world record holders that aren’t going to have to battle within 5 minutes,” says Healey. “Most people are going to have to have that battle within 30-seconds. It’s one of those alarms that’s meant to keep you alive, but in certain situations, it’s a real hindrance. This incredible anxiety just grips you. You have to dig into that feeling and regain control of your mind; instead of your body telling your mind what to do, you have to keep your mind telling your body what to do.” Press play on the edit above to see how Healey deals with discomfort, both above and below the water’s surface in this latest short “Stepping Beyond.”

Sub Sole: A New DeepwaterSurf Production

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Sometimes it pays to chase a rumor, like when Ramón Navarro, Kohl Christensen and Otto Flores scouted an ephemeral, whispered-about sandbar point that had likely never been surfed. Along with a few local chargers, they found dredging, 8-to-10 foot lefthand barrels—and surfed it almost non-stop until the bar disappeared. Here’s a look back at their trip in the latest episode of Deep Water Surf.

Mick Fanning announces his retirement from the World Tour | #CheersMick

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Over the course of his career Mick Fanning has been through more than most of us could imagine. He’s seen both personal triumph and personal tragedy under the scrutiny of the public eye, worked through injuries that would have ended others’ careers, and punched a shark on live television, coming out completely physically unscathed.

Throughout all of that, he has won 3x World Championship Titles, 22x World Tour events, and completed 16 career tours.

Today, he announces his retirement from the WSL World Tour, and we look back on all that he has achieved… before we look forward to what’s next.

Tom Curren Explores Free-form Surfing on the French Coast | Made in Europe

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

► Explore more scenic surf in Madagascar: http://win.gs/SurfMadagascar
Made In Europe is a three-part series exploring the unique lives of surfers who call the Old World home. In the first instalment, Southern California-based filmmaker Matt Payne visits Hossegor, France, where he spends time with Tom Curren. For surfers, Europe has always been a destination that offers promise of something more than simply wave riding. The remnants of eras long past often stand right at the water’s edge, defying the ocean’s penchant for constant, radical change. Unsurprisingly, such an environment inspires Europe’s sons, daughters, and lifelong visitors to foster unique approaches to the act and art of surfing.

Kai VLOG 4: North Shore Mayhem

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Staying at the Red Bull house right on the beach with Pipeline in the back yard it was a great experience being able to be so close to the action and put time in at one of the heaviest places in the world. On the flip side of the coin, there is so much surf to ride that step outside the scene and getting some great rides was almost the best part of the trip.

Amp Sessions: Kerby Brown in South West Australia

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Every trek to Southwest Australia is a massive gamble. The closest hospital is far enough away to make odds grim in life and death situations. Helicopter rescues have been performed. Shark sightings frequently will cause a crew to turn around, burn the petrol, and head home with their tails between their legs. But in a world where it’s getting harder and harder to find a little piece of heaven to yourself, Kerby Brown and film-maker Rick Rifici are willing to roll the dice.

A couple weeks ago we got our first look into a future full-length film showcasing their collaboration with a short edit called Born Of Fire . Today we bring you another tease, with our latest Amp Sessions edit showcasing Brown navigating new bends in the continental shelf above and below sea level. Enjoy.

Monster Mavericks (Full Movie) 1995

Monday, February 12th, 2018

Wild rides and psychotic wipeouts on unbelievably huge waves . . . Great water and land footage of `The meanest spot on earth’ and interviews with the hellmen who charge it.” Quote from Wave Action Magazine. You have glimpsed the intensity of Maverick’s on the covers and in the folds of all the surfing magazines, in every major newspaper across the US, and on network TV. Now you can get the big picture. See Jay Jay Moriarity’s now famous Surfer Magazine front cover wipeout from top to bottom, frame by excuciating frame. And believe it or not you will see worse. Features big wave riders from around the world including Brock Little, Mike Parsons, Ken Bradshaw, and Mark Foo (including his fateful last ride). See the new generation surfers Peter Mel Flea Virostko, Evan Slater, and Josh Loya dueling the monster green beasts with the local Maverick’s pioneers Jeff Clark, Doc Renneker, and Grant Washburn. Never in the history of surfing has a surf spot received or earned this much publicity. Surfer Magazine says, “See it before you paddle out.” Surfing Magazine says, “Monster Mavericks is what the California Winter is all about. If you want to see some heavy waves and wipeouts this is the video to get.”

How a Small Oz Town Produced 5 Surf Champions

Monday, February 12th, 2018

Five thousand. That’s the population of Coolangatta, Australia. Yet someway, somehow, this tiny town has produced more surfing world champions than anywhere else in the world.

A lot of that has to do with the local wave. You may have heard of it – it’s called the Superbank. But in The Ripple Effect, we learn that the history of the Coolangatta Kids runs a whole lot deeper than the world’s most famous sandbar.
