Airport Politics: The Hunt For Comfy Seating

You’ll only find two kinds of chairs in the airport – the comfy kind and the kind that require a contortionist’s body to squeeze into.   There’s a crazy reason for this. Since the dawn of aviation, the people who design seating in airports around the world have done so with a ‘Hunger Games’ format in mind. They want us to fight over them, for the joy of sport and entertainment. From the moment you check in for your flight, it’s a bloody battle for…

The Top 5 Claims Of The Billabong Pro, Tahiti: Day 1

Day 1 of the Billabong Pro, Tahiti, just ran in psychotically gnarly conditions. Thank the gods (all of them) the swell came through. The tour needs this. No matter how perilous and unsafe it might be to send a crew of mortal men out there for the sake of sport, this needs to happen. For surfing’s street cred, if nothing else. Ever since the ASP went all glam-rock on us, it’s like Mother Nature has been too embarrassed to be associated with pro surfing. Anyways,…

Surfer Rides Over Great White In L.A.

Surfer Rides Over Great White In L.A.

  Manhattan Beach  is quickly earning itself a big reputation for being the number 1 shark spotting local in California. Photog, Bo Bridges, shot this recent footage of an SUP heading straight over a Great White that was minding its own business. There’s a sweet irony to this situation – as scar as seeing a shark in the water can be, it’s almost equally terrifying having an SUP come straight at you, full tilt, with nowhere to turn.

New Rebel Surf Tour To Run Alongside WCT

Surfing becoming a mainstream sport is a good thing for the most part. It’s fun to watch the best competitors in the world battle each other for prize money and fame, but there’s a certain amount of pageantry that comes with ‘mainstream marketing’ that, well.. just isn’t cool. But we bear it so that when events like Teahupoo are on, we can all watch the webcast in HD with stunning clarity. One of the biggest changes to contest surfing we’ve seen is the rise in claims…

Noa Deane – Cheese 2

Noa Deane – Cheese 2

CHEESE II from noa deane on Vimeo.   Noa Deane is a pretty hip cat.  He’s a pro surfer who’s not repping a coach or a diet plan or healthy outlook on life. He doesn’t compete and he’s definitely not trying to qualify “one heat at a time”.   He drinks beer and plays mediocre music in his mediocre band and drinks beer and smokes rollies. That’s cool for now. There are lots of guys ten, twenty years older than him doing the same thing who are…

The Soullessness Of Charity Videos

The Soullessness Of Charity Videos

Okay, so this is the latest feel-good viral video making its way around the inter-web. I’m all for virtual charity, but why these kids are being applauded is a bit confusing. The scene It stars three German students and a homeless guy. Student #1 shimmies over to him and asks if he can borrow his bucket, which he uses as a drum to generate interest from random people and show off his mediocre music skills. Once student #1 has shown off and made the homeless chap feel…
