The Usher Cup

We know there are plenty of competitions in the world of surfing, but not very often are they supported by a non-endemic surf brand. Yes we have non-endemic support to already established endemic brands, but not straight up non-endemic being the driving force behind it. To top that off, every other sponsor of this event is also non-endemic.

WERET – Style and Function

We’ve been lucky enough to be given the WERET Premium Surf Watch, with surf forecasting built in, all in an analogue time piece. Yep, this is not a watch in our opinion, it’s a time piece and pretty damn classy if you ask us.

Gen4 – Changing the Game

At 12 years old, I came home from a day of autograph hunting with friends Mitch Parkinson and Jack Freestone, from the 2004 Quiksilver Pro at Snapper Rocks and announced over dinner, my mates wanted to be pro-surfers, but I thought I’d prefer to shape their boards.

The Medina Myth

But, as he tells Surfing Life, he’s willing to do whatever it takes. Story: In a few minutes Gabriel Medina will make his debut at the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast but right now he’s trying to compose himself. Surrounded by hundreds of fans, he stands alone on the rocks at Snapper Beach, head bowed, eyes closed and board cradled to his chest. Gabriel, a devout Christian, is praying.

Bersih Puntorama 3.0

What the hell is The Bersih Puntorama, and why would we be writing about it as a magazine that has long removed itself from the reporting of competitions?

Mt Woodgee and the Zoo that makes the magic happen.

Is that a little harsh? A zoo? I made a statement to the guys in there just recently, that if you don’t have to look after your creatives with kit gloves then you don’t have the right creatives, of this statement I got a nod of approval from Ian.

Surfing Australia – HPC

I was asked to join the guys at the High Performance Centre (HPC) for a days coaching and I was pumped. I’d been to the HPS three years ago almost to the day and had a cracking time with the coaching staff. My wife had bought me a two day “Adult Surf Camp” for my birthday… what a great gift. Had I have known how good it was I would have just booked it myself, but a lovely gift to be sure.

Ice and Sea

Sea & Ice

Let it be clear: the surf here has to be chased, and even when you find it, it probably will be nothing that resembles what was expected.

A night in with Craig Anderson

We sat down with him before he jumped on a plane to the other side of the world, and talked about all things in his universe.
