As promised, here is even more insane footage from Fiji. This 18-minute short film on last week's Cloudbreak freesurf comes to us from John Eaves. One of the most amazing things about this historic day was how unexpected it was. Most of the WCT didn't have boards bigger than 6'8", and even on the day it arrived, nobody expected ridable waves of that size. In fact, Eaves, who shot and edited this short, wasn't even preparing himself to film the session. "I had a ringside seat..Read More →
After several lay days at Tavarua, the much anticipated super-swell aimed at Fiji brought a herd of sideshore whitecaps to Cloudbreak and Restaurants. As the swell continued building, the call was made to run the last 2 heats of Round 2 in giant lumpy lefts before the event was called off for the day.

This little short film really captures the excitement and nerves..Read More →

While Kelly Slater was obviously the most notable name in the lineup, there were some seriously demented individuals floating around hunting for bombs. The reef at Cloudbreak is isolated a mile off the nearest dry sand, and that distance only makes the wave more powerful and..Read More →
Two weeks ago, photos started surfacing of a massive swell that hit Fiji just after the Fijian government revoked exclusive reef rights from Tavarua and Namotu, essentially opening the floodgates to any and all surfers who wished to sample the coveted tubes at Cloudbreak and Restaurants. It seems that Cloudbreak has erected its own 'no trespassing' sign with a ferocious display of power. This is about as big as it ever gets, and even with the invitation wide open, there were only a handful..Read More →
