Short intense slab rides running into dry reef or cliffs, what’s not to love about these crazy unpredictable surf spots! Click in to watch this Brazilian banger take a few scalps.

Some People call it a Mutant Wave, for the locals ´´THIS IS SHOCK“.

Fun at Cape Fear, sort of!

Fun at Cape Fear, sort of!

Tim gets to work with board shaping legend Dylan Longbottom while the world is in lock down. Not been able to travel, Cape Solander opens up to local surfers for 2 days of fun but as usual, dangerous waves. Claiming victims as well as some nice barrel rides.. It’s not called Cape Fear for nothing.

SOFTSERVE, A Surf Melt

SOFTSERVE, A Surf Melt

SOFTSERVE. A Surf Melt
by Kael Walsh & Wade Carroll

Two trips to Indonesia. Four good swells in Western Australia. Six broken boards. A few meltdowns. One mangled ankle. The last of those things played a big role in Soft Serve. Kael, who is 20 years old, was on a heater during the first few days of the second trip to Indo — until the injury put an end to that. You can imagine what would have went down if his ankle stayed intact. Or, instead, you can just watch Soft Serve and get amped.

Assorted Rides | Devon Howard

Assorted Rides | Devon Howard

“Assorted Rides” is comprised of a few sessions in California where I met up with a surfer I’ve really enjoyed watching over the years. Devon Howard’s approach to surfing inspired the feel of this short—a modern classic. In preparation for this project, I pored over old surf photography books with works by guys like LeRoy Grannis and Ron Stoner. They are photographers that captured moments and told stories through the use of dramatic backlighting and color accents compressed through a manual focus telephoto lens that—when complimented by the grain of film—produced a timeless image. My hope is the short film does two things: 1.) Makes you want to go surfing right now! 2.) To record a moment in time which represents what I think is Devon’s best surfing to date, at age 46 no less.

And if curious about what’s going on under his feet, here’s what Devon had to say about the boards and the type of surfing we filmed:

“After a few decades of goofing off in the surf, I’ve whittled down what I ride most into two distinct camps—both of which are an obvious extension of the waves, culture and characters where I’ve lived all these years. For the cruisey, under shoulder high days (which there are many), I find classic style single-fin longboards (9’9 to 10’) with a ’66 Australian bent are hard to beat. When conditions finally push shoulder high on up to double overhead, my plan shapes dip down a few feet to a range of mostly egg-inspired outlines (6’10 – 7’2”), and the rails, bottom contours and fin set-ups take on a much more revved up form.

I dig how these two design groupings allow an easy transition from one to the next (thank you low rocker and generous volume), but offer discernible shifts in speed, accessibility to different parts of the wave, and maximize the available space on the face. This film short by Florida’s Drew Miller captures the back and forth pacing between long and mid sized equipment, the decisions for which are primarily driven by equal parts attitude and surf conditions.
There is absolutely nothing new here in terms of a “horses for courses” approach (thank you Nat Young, Skip Frye, etc), but although well into my mid 40s, I’m still passionate about learning what works, what doesn’t, then plugging that back into the never ending design loop. The stoke for staying on the surf prowl explains why the boards and the ride itself just keeps getting better.”
Thank you for watching,
Drew Miller

LOCALS ONLY

LOCALS ONLY

You know the score. There’s certain crew at your local, that any time the swell is on, you can count on them showing up. The ones that live for the increase in a swell period or when the conditions start to light up. Their hungry, they want it. Recently the East Coast of Australia was bombarded by a solid groundswell that lasted for days. It was simply the gift that just kept giving. Dependant on the slight change in direction, the wind, different banks, slabs, and reefs just turned on. This beautiful clip, captured and edited clip by Spencer Frost, with music by his brother Dylan, is focused on one small stretch of Aussie sand and reef. Four local surfers, some family men, (even one with baby triplets) all different, but all committed surfers and coming together when it’s on. Carpenter – Beau Cram, Landscape Gardener – Karl Atkins, Computer Programmer – Paul “Bass” Stanton and Movement and Health Coach – Nick Laidlaw. Juggling life’s necessities and finding time is always the key. It’s the creative ways that we deal with this juggle, to ensure we can be there and get these swells when they come. As Bainy says “We love having these types of guys as test pilots and friends of O’Neill and this really is just a small celebration of these committed everyday surfers.
