  • The Monkees - 50th Anniversary Tour

    On September 8, 1965, when producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider placed a classified ad in The Hollywood Reporter seeking “4 insane boys,” they had no idea that they were about to unleash Monkee-mania!

Off The Beaten Track (Ep 1)

2015 is here, the pro tours have kicked off and I couldn't be further from the beaten track and the well ridden waves. 

The Best Of 2015's New Surf Tech

The Board: The Surrator - Laird StandUp We've all liked a bit of Laird Hamilton and, more recently, some of us have been liking his range of boards and other kit. But if you haven't, now is the time to stand up and take notice (pun intended) as Laird et al. have made it to the cutting edge. 

Stephanie Gilmore: The ASP World Championship's Last Minute Winner

The surfing world looked on in amazement last month as Stephanie Gilmore just pipped Tyler Wright to the post to take the ASP women's World Championship crown, but Wright didn't go down without a fight. It was drama till the last at the Target Maui Pro, with the ASP women's World Championship Tour title up for grabs right up until the very last surf off of the tour's last event.  

The People's Republic of Carving

A lot of new voices from across the world are coming to play big parts in shaping modern surf culture and the fashion that goes with it. From the old breaks in Australia where, as we saw in the last blog, Girl Surf Network is telling the world that skill matters more than looks or money in surfing. To new frontiers in China, where the national culture is bringing a whole new aesthetic into surfing.  

The cold of the frontier

A chill wind, a brash and clear dawn, some hot coffee beside a high energy breakfast, then off out to hit some of the coldest, emptiest waves on earth. This is what is attracting an increasing number of inquisitive travellers away from the warmer, overcrowded surf resorts of Australia, The US and Central America.  

Body issue? What body issue?

Should looks be celebrated over skill? it was announced last week that Coco Ho was to become the fourth female surfer to star in the famous, naked flesh-fest that is ESPN Magazine's 'The Body Issue'. She joins Stephanie Gilmore, Maya Gabeira, and Claire Bevilacqua whom have all got their kit off for the Body Issue. By contrast Kelly Slater is the only male ASP surfer to have been called up, despite there being more than twice as many male surfers on the tour at any one time, strange that.  

The Birth of Surf Style - Pre 60s surf fashion

The closest thing to surfing's Ark of Covenant is on display at the Sydney Freshwater Surf Club and it's one of the oldest examples of surfing style still around today.  

Starting from the beggining: Why do I Surf and why should you?

I want to answer this question because I think it's for the same reason that everyone should try surfing at least once in their lives and I hope that by telling you I might inspire you to give it a go. Also I've said a lot about the pros and the big events, which are awesome, but I want to get down to the brilliant act of just getting out and getting on a board.  

Girl Surf Network Paves the Way for Female Frothers

It’s about time the surf industry exercised a little girl power. The establishment of the Girl Surf Network (GSN) answers worldwide calls for such a thing, created and managed by professional women that live and breathe the wave riding lifestyle. Armed with a solid company mission, a sassy logo and a passionate team of experts, GSN is set to take the surfing industry by storm!  

Relaxation For The Hope Of A Nation - Brazils World Championship Hope Chills At The Top

It's been an explosive tour for Brazilian Gabriel Medina, that much has been obvious since his forceful win straight out of the gates at the Quicksilver Gold Coast Pro.
