Downwind Foiling tips in 360

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Downwind SUP foiling is fun and very challenging, this is what I learned from my attempts at learning this amazing sport. After training for the M2M and M2O races on an unlimited board for the last few months, I’m getting back into foiling more and did a downwind run from Portlock to Diamond Head in good conditions. When everything works, foiling in the bumps is a dream come true, racing and connecting on fast and long bumps that would be impossible to ride at those speeds on any other craft. It is more challenging than it looks though, these are my takeaways. I hope my tips and instructions will help others to find their way in this amazing new sport.
This video was shot with a Garmin Virb360. For some reason the 360 feature is not working on YouTube, to watch the video in 360 where you can direct the view with your mouse, watch it on Facebook here:

Our latest Freakonomics Radio episode is called “Has Lance Armstrong Finally Come Clean?”
He was once the most lionized athlete on the planet, with seven straight Tour de France wins and a victory over cancer too. Then the doping charges caught up with him. When he finally confessed to Oprah, he admits, “it didn’t go well at all.” That’s because he wasn’t actually contrite yet. Now, five years later, he says he is. Do you believe him?

Is this Cloudbreak’s biggest swell ever? | Sessions

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

►Check out Mikala Jones surfing Indonesia:
►Check out some surf-madness at Shipstern Bluff:
You don’t want to miss this exclusive edit from Fiji’s mega swell. 
The reports said they would be some of the biggest waves ever to hit Cloudbreak, so we sent a legendary crew there to document – and ride – history.
Ever since the historic June 2012 swell at Cloudbreak in Fiji, big wave surfers have pondered the possibilities of the one that got away. You know the one. Some have called it the ‘unicorn wave.’ Well, six years later, the unicorn showed its face once again.
Mark Healey takes off his leash at the last second, diving as deep as he can through the back of this translucent beast. A handful of other surfers frantically paddling for the shoulder. Meanwhile, Healey’s board sits perfectly alone in the pitching lip, looking more like a toothpick than the 10-foot-plus chunk of fibreglass that it was.
Some have called it the ‘unicorn wave.’ Well, six years later, the unicorn showed its face once again – and perennial big-wave charger Ramon Navarro was on it.
While Navarro’s bomb – which you can witness in this fresh edit above, by legendary big-wave filmer Tim Bonython – was the biggest of the day, it sure wasn’t the only mind-blowing ride to go down. Guys like Kai Lenny, Natxo Gonzalez, Laurie Towner, Luke Shepardson, Kelly Slater, and others were there to make history. Click on the edit above to relive the greatest moments.

Occ-Cast Episode 32 featuring Rob Machado | Billabong

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

Mark Occhilupo & Rob Machado are two of the greatest goofy footers to have ever taken to the ocean. One is all raw power & personality, the other fluid grace & humility.

Despite the differences in their approach, they’ve both captured the imaginations of generations of surfers around the globe.

In Episode 32 of the Occ-Cast, the two sit down to chat about what it’s like to have kids that surf, discuss the legendary 1995 Pipe Masters, and explore what it feels like to unexpectedly drop off tour. In the words of Rob: “I’d just had a baby and lost my job and my sponsor and was just like, what on earth am I going to do?”

What followed next was one of the best things to ever happen to him as a surfer.

Dive in and enjoy Occy vs. Rob.
