Summer Swell and Shooting the Pier

We have had an incredible summer swell here in California brought to us by Hurricane Marie. Surfline’s report the past few days at Malibu’s Surfider Beach has said “Good to Epic.”  Normal reports for the LA area this time of year usually read “Poor to Flat.”

Check out these two heroes of surf (Allen Sarlo and Laird Hamilton) shooting the Malibu Pier.

(We’d love some footage of our surf sisters catching this swell.  If you have any, please send us a link!)

The Surfrider Foundation Turns 30


Thirty years ago, a group of surfers from Malibu, California, took action to fight the environmental health risks associated with escalating coastal development.  Since its inception in 1984, the Surfrider Foundation has evolved into one of the largest nonprofit grassroots organizations dedicated to  protecting and enjoying the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.

To celebrate, they have launched the organization’s first-ever timeline and an opportunity for the public to submit a design for their 2015 membership tee.

Six-Year-Old Quincy Surfs Better Than You

Six-year-old Quincy Symonds of Australia’s Gold Coast rips harder than most adults I see in the lineup. Not only is she totally adorable, but she had to overcome a lot of challenges at very young age. We think you totally rock, Quincy!

Oh Holly, You So Crazy

While we certainly don’t condone this for any other pregnant ladies, we are still impressed with this video of Holly Beck Obermeyer surfing at 32 weeks pregnant. That is going to be one surf stoked little bambino!
