A recent purple blob in the Pacific sent a large scale west swell to the Hawaiian Islands. Debates were made whether or not the unusual angle of swell would work at Jaws. After a historic few days of surfing and arguably the best big wave ever caught by a woman, we’ll let the images do the talking

It’s hard to put into words an experience like this. Suffice it to say, Quincy is an amazing kid. She deals with a lot of attention and somehow remains as normal a kid as can be. If she’s not surfing you can find her playing soccer, football, rugby, x-box, ping-pong, skating, tag, or just talking. If she’s not talking she’s probably sleeping.

Off The Well Worn Path – Asher Pacey
from Desillusion Magazine
Asher Pacey is one humble dude both in and out the water. Growing up without electricity and learning to survive off the land probably helped in that respect. It’s clear Asher values the small things in life that most people take for granted. Filmmaker Matt Kleiner brings us a unique insight into the mind of one of the stylish and respectful surfers out there today.

Mikala Jones, Marlon Gerber, Tai Graham and Desert Point future star Awan Hadi could have aimed for the usual sure bets when the Indian Ocean came alive during a big swell, but with such a massive population of surfers hungry to see some juice they knew crowds would be at worst-ever levels. Instead, they caught […]
O’Neill Benelux explores Iceland
Only 1/3 of the surfable ocean waves are warm and tropical. Jack O’Neill developed the wetsuit in 1952 and with that opened the door to the other 2/3 with often empty line-ups and ice-cold but picture-perfect waves. Why always go to tropical over-crowded locations is what O’Neill Benelux team rider Dominga Valdes asked herself. Together with 4 of the best Dutch and Belgium surfers, she travelled to the freezing cold land full of mysteries: Iceland, in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean – to find perfection.
