Kelly Slater Number 10

Holly Shit,Kelly Slater has just won his tenth title

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


I woke up this morning and heard the sadest news that Andy Irons just passed away (he was battling against Dengue fever).

To lose a Brother, a son, and a husband (soon to be father) must heartbreaking far beyond what I can imagine.

My deepest thoughts are going to his family. So while it may not bring any comfort to this huge loss, His soul, his inspiration is alived through most surfers you are seeing in the oceans all around the globe because like me, thousands of other kids have watched him surf and try to copy his style.

for more info, here is the press release from Billabong.

Harrison Gordon

About two weeks ago, I went to Hintertux and met Harrison Gordon, super chill dude and I have to say he is pretty fucking talented .

Here is a part I found on Whitelines site...too bad it's only jibbing footage because Harrison shreds in backcountry as well.

Final Heat Kelly Vs Fanning

Hossegor is one of my favorite place to surf : super thick lips so that you have to be ultra committed.

Trestle Circus

Almost everytime I went to Trestles, there would be a full crew of pros/photographers in the water. Well that time of year, it is simply crazy and the whole WCT is back to So.Cal

When tattoos go wrong

Il ike tattoo, it is about personal expression sometimes it has big meaning and sometimes it is womething you got while being drunk in Vegas (but usually you in that case you also got married to a hooker who has three kids so that the tattoo will be the least of your problem).

So anyway here is a picture I saw from this site which show that some people go a bit weird on their love for snowboarding:

Sheep Surfing

Bad Slam

Andy Irons short films

At the end, Andy is talking about his first waves...funny because my friends and I we all remember our first wave and and I was a surf instructor that was my goal to get my students hooked on their first's a sensation hard to describe so you will have to try surfing next time you see some waves.

So here is what happened

Everyone heard about Shaun White face planting the copping while trying to land its double cork backside 1260...Pretty much similar like K.Pearce's accident resulting in severe brain injury....However Shaun seemed to absorb it pretty well as he kept pushing through the competition and ended up winning.

Most snowboarders would have finished at the hospital from such an impact.

XGames, Shaun White wins again


When I saw the board about a month ago featured in some online forum, I thought to myself that the drawings were pretty weak but quickly I realized that it was very much like skateboarding (at least like Toy Machine) and because it is a rail board, It actually makes sense and in addition it is something different from other manufacturers.

I have been lucky enough to check out this board a week ago and actually the graphic looks much better in real than online. I felt I had a skateboard in my hands, you know ready to f&cking shred some kinky rails. With some new tech like Easy press core and no chip tip this board is ready to score.

-Expansion of their GMP regrind process across the entire line above the $160 price point.

-All new Freestyle and Citizen ‘One-Up’ series. These are in addition to our traditional Freestyle and Citizen, but are new convenience based one-strap models for easier entry and exit. They ride amazing in all types of conditions and cut your entry/exit time in half.

-From 50’s pulp art on the Malavita, to the scribbling from some drunken artist on the Cobrashark!, to the clean lines of the C02, each model takes on its own unique feel. In the women’s line it was no holds bar on the shelf appeal of this line

I never had the chance to try noboarding, but being a skater and surfer since 6 years old, to imagine the feeling of surfing on powder must be an incredible feeling.
Actually I had a dream about it last night so while this video is not a recent one it can give you an idea on how much fun it is on powder.

Bode Merrill

Bode Merrill has been nominated for both Rider of the Year and Best Video Part...Here is a quick look at his skills from the video Neverland:

Surfing in Japan...

With thousands of other japanese surfer in the Sagami Bay. That is the tale from one of my Floridian buddy who went there for the holidays.

I couldn't believe how many people were surfing such tiny waves. That would be the same crowd at Blacks or Sunset during a perfect 8 feet swell on a Sunday morning but I found the pictures funny enough that I thought I would show them.
