This year flew! The Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons, the third and final stop of the Vans Triple Crown and the final event of the 2013 ASP Men’s World Tour, is almost here.

Slated for Sunday, December 8th through Friday, December 20th, the Banzai Pipeline, or Pipe, is an iconic and historic wave that is often referred to as the best wave on the planet. Located off Ehukai Beach Park in Pupukea on Oahu’s famous North Shore, the Pipe is a surf reef break known for its perfect, heaving top-to-bottom barrels and its close proximity to shore, and is it the perfect wave for those willing to charge.

But, it’s also great surf watching for the spectators on the beach. And you’re in luck since Billabong is sponsoring a contest to win a trip to watch it live!

The trip includes airfare for 2, 3 nights hotel stay, and $400 spending money.

Enter here to win.

It would be so sweet to watch this live! As we know, last year, Parko not only won the contest but also the World Title, in a gripping duel with 11 times surfing champ Kelly Slater.

ASP WCT surfers’ year-end rankings are based off their top eight finishes from the 10 ASP WCT events in 2013. Mick Fanning is the current rankings leader on the ASP WCT. Here are the top 5:

1) Mick Fanning (AUS)
2) Kelly Slater (USA)
3) Joel Parkinson (AUS)
4) Jordy Smith (ZAF)
5) Taj Burrow (AUS)

Who do you think will take it all this year? Continue reading

We’re stoked to attend the red carpet world premiere event of “Saltwater Green,” produced by Jeremy Briggs, brother of Becker Team Rider Greg Briggs, this Friday, October 25th at La Paloma Theatre in Encinitas, CA.

A fast-paced longboard surfing movie and Briggs’s second longboard film, “Saltwater Green” features 3X World Champion Colin McPhillips, 2X and current World Champion Taylor Jensen, and 2006 World Champion Josh Constable riding both single fins and tri-fins.

Enjoy tons of gorgeous individual profile sequences, showcasing these talented longboard surfers riding their home breaks here in California, as well as in Australia. It features a perfect combination of traditional longboarding and performance longboarding.

The movie also stars California standouts Brendan White, Steven Newton, Noah Shimabukuro, Greg Briggs, and Tommy Witt with some pretty amazing moves.

You come out with a deeper appreciation of what it means to be a surfer and the talent it takes to be the kind that stands out from the others.

There will be two showings: one at 7pm and one at 9pm. Tickets are $12 at the door.

Hope to see you there!

You know us, we always love a good surf clip, and this one’s no exception. It was a bummer when Sam Page blew out his knee, but even though it started out as an injury, you’ll be psyched that Sam … Continue reading

Many of you may already know Creed with accolades under his belt including former U/18 Australian Champion (2010), Runner-up U/16 Australian Titles (2009), and former winner of Taj’s Small Fries, Occy Grom Comp and Grom Search, but 18-year Australian surfer Creed McTaggart is just starting.

Get a sense of Creed’s surfing in a latest video, The Black & White Edits, which is a beautiful display of Creed’s surfing.

According to a review by Surfing Magazine: “Before the Hipster Police arrive and draw their weapons, allow us to forewarn. Yes, this entire edit is in black and white. Yes, it is pervaded with lifestyle clips. And yes, there are grainy film filters. But if any of that bothers you, maybe you should take a step back and look at the actual surfing. Creed’s got one of the best styles in the game and we ain’t talking hairdos. The slob at 1:54 is a good example of his skatey panache. Like Mason Ho, Creed is often a tracktop-less wonder. As the clip comes of age, we see Creed comboing bowls without the help of a kicktail. It’s enough to have even the sergeant of the HP surrender his badge, buy a fedora and become a fan of all things Creed McTaggert.”

We couldn’t agree more. The surfing is pretty rad and breathtaking… Creed is pretty inspired as he thrashes his way around Western Australia, jamming turns and airs in every possible pocket. It’s no wonder why he is by far one of the best 18 year olds in the world today.
