Two weeks ago, the prospect of an epic Pipeline Masters seemed like just a pipe dream (that was lame, sorry). The season had been slow to say the least, and with a dismal forecast for Haleiwa, the whole Triple Crown was looking pretty crappy. Pipeline was choked with sand, and showing no signs of cleaning up.That was then, this is now, and on the North Shore one's luck can change just that fast. An epic Sunset event, and a couple big Wests later, and the Pipe Event is..Read More →
While surfers in North America are celebrating the arrival of another beach season this Memorial Day weekend, beach-cooler talk will ultimately revolve to their surfing counterparts Down Under, and the few brave souls who celebrated the arrival of winter storms in the Southern Hemisphere last week by riding the biggest waves ever seen at Shipstern Bluff, an ominous Tasmanian break reserved for the truly bold. "It doesn't get bigger," said photographer Andrew Chisolm, a Surfer..Read More →
This post was initially published in September of 2010, just after Kelly Slater won the Hurley Pro at Trestles and took over the ratings lead in what was then his quest for a 10th world title. Last week he repeated the feat, and with four events left to go this season, Mr. Slater is now closing in on an 11th world championship. So we figured we'd update the stats and revisit this question, being it's even more relevant one year later. Nine-time [update: ten-time] world surfing..Read More →
A few weeks ago we reported on the death of the sudden death of the Surfing Reserves bill that was moving through the Hawaiian legislature. The bill, which was brought before the legislature by Republican Senator Fred Hemmings (a longtime surfer who won the 1968 world championships in Puerto Rico and helped launch the world tour in 1976) was to designate areas of Waikiki and the North Shore of Oahu as surfing reserves. The controversy over the bill's death spread after a YouTube..Read More →
Here's a perfect example of why good people don't want to go into politics. Democrats kill SB2646, a.k.a. the the Surfing Reserves bill in Hawaii, despite the bill getting unanimous committee support in both the House and Senate. The early going is painful to watch, but things start getting good at about the 6:30 mark. This video was passed along by Fred Hemmings, the 1968 world champion and founder of the IPS (today's ASP) who's been a Hawaii State Senator for more than a..Read More →
A few days ago the Hawaii state legislature made a landmark decision when they passed a civil union bill. But in the shadows of that watershed moment in Hawaiian politics, there was another bill that went before the legislature that met a far less glorious and unrecognized fate. The Hawaii Surfing Reserves Bill, led by Sen. Fred Hemmings--a monumental figure in shaping the sport who has held elected office in Hawaii for more than two decades--was proposed before the delegates as a means to..Read More →
Tom Curren celebrated the 25th anniversary of his first world title yesterday by beating Mark Occhilupo -- the same guy he beat at Bells back in 1986 during a semifinal showdown that earned him his championship. On Saturday, Curren, 44, looked as spry as he did a quarter century ago. Occy had his moments too, but struggled a little more in the mushy conditions. Their match was the second round of their Clash of the Icons series. Occy took the first one last July in Jeffreys Bay...Read More →
Jed Noll Finds the Right Alchemy on a San Clemente CornerThe first surf shops began as extensions of shaping rooms. Out of the 1940s and into the 1950s, guys like Matt Kivlin, Joe Quigg, Bob Simmons, Jack O'Neill and Dale Velzy - then Hobie and Greg Noll and etc - who were busy as bees shaping surfboards in garages and small workshops, found that as demand grew, it was a good idea to hang a shingle and sell surfboards from the front of the store, at the same time they mowed balsa..Read More →
