Skys the Limit at Cloudbreak

Cloudbreak may not have been its frothing heaving pit fest of the past, but the perfect normal joe style barrels kept us entertained, and also keeps the title race wide open, with Medina taking out the Fiji Pro. This means there is a ton of big names vying for the ASP title at the end of the year.... exciting for sure

Kiwis rocking the top 10 on WQS

We are frothing to see the kiwi contingent of Billy Stairmand and Ricardo Christie doing so well this year.  Raglan surfer Billy placed third at the Quiksilver Saquarema Prime event in Brazil elevating him to fourth in the world on the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Qualifying Series.

Stairmand was joined by fellow Kiwi Richard Christie (Gisborne) who placed fifth at the event jumping him 74 places to ninth on the rankings.

Pipe's all the way to the end

Wow what an exciting end to the WCT, with Fanning needing a semi final finish and Slater needing to win the thing to be world champs. It meant every round had everyone on the edge of their seat. Between Fannings unbelievable knack of pulling the scores he needed with a minite to go, and Kellys domination of every heat he was in made it feel like it could go either way.

Bells Beach Boil Over

Nat Young
Carissa Moore

Talk about exciting the brazillians and rookies stepped up this year at bells to push out the big guns early. It kept us on th eedge of our seats the whole event. Stoked to see Nat Young shredding on his backhand, but De Souza tore through to take out the final. With waves from big and stormy to nice and clean, it was epic out there. The Girls were tearing it up with some of the best surfing we have ever seen, Carissa Moore taking it out.

Ricardo Christie 3rd at Breaka Burleigh Pro

Ricardo Christie was a standout at the event racing into the Semi Finals of The Breaka Burleigh Pro, ending up finishing the event in equal third place. Despite his blistering form throughout the early rounds of the event, Christie was unable to replicate the same high scores he'd found earlier in the event, while surfing against Adam Melling in the first Semifinal who had a 18+ score in the semi..

John John 3x Volcom Pipe Pro Champ!

Everyone knows young Mr Florence is an absolute charger in the big stuff, especially Hawaii and hes proved it once again! For a lot of people this event just snuck under the radar, but for those pipe frothers like us, the footage from this years Volcom pro was amazing. With a four man heat format, it makes for some good old husslin, and rampant wave action. Be sure to check out the footage...

Portugal pro fish toobes

rip curl pro portugal fish barrel

Theres been some entertaining ASP action lately, with the Quiky Pro France providing insane beachie tubes and next level surfing. Now Portugal has shown some fun tubes too.. and has also provided some footage i have never seen ever! Damien Hobgood in the sweet little forhand tube, had 3 or 4 fish jumping through the tube in front of him.. chandellaring if you will. It makes for some entertaining viewing.

It looks like there is some solid swell on the way to Portugal for the final rounds, so hopefully it all falls together for some pumping surf..
