Ryan Burch puts the pedal to the metal on the walls of Bangko-Bangko and pulls into some heavy ones at Grajagan Bay after sharing a few thoughts on self-expression, how surfing and the asymmetrical boards he shapes fit into that, and what it is about being on a wave that excites him.

THE 9 FOOT & SINGLE 2014 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
It was only a few years ago that everyone told us the Canggu river mouth was strictly a shortboard wave. They said it was too fast and too powerful for heavy longboards… haven’t we proved them wrong? Over the past three years the 9 Foot & Single has seen logging at its absolute best. It helps that we’ve had some the best in the world do the waves justice (think Knost, Chojnaki, Roach and more), but seeing the heavy logs lumber along in those kinds of conditions has been somewhat ground breaking. It has changed the way we think about longboarding; it has changed our perceptions about where and when a longboard should be ridden. On any given day, we recognize that the Canggu river mouth is a shortboard spot, but during the weekend of the event, when the water is cleared, our competitors 60’s inspired single fins have their time to shine. And shine they do!

The technique becomes more and more obvious as the years go by… it’s becoming an art form: take-off, noseride, tube, cutback, another noseride, end it off the lip… Each year the level of surfing jumps leaps and bounds. It’s ‘sky’s the limit’ surfing and it’s damn exciting for the spectators. Imagine watching dudes noseride their 9 footers at that speed! This year saw Devon Howard (one of California’s greats) take down guys half his age for the winner’s trophy. You know what he scored? A custom Thomas X Deus 9’6. But honestly, every surfer who competed in the 9 Foot & Single was a winner. The waves were pumping, the beer was pouring and the vibes were... pleasant? Please excuse me, but it’s hard to find a word that starts with P that will do the 9 Foot & Single justice. You’ll just have to come along and see for yourself next year. I can tell you now it’ll be a whole lot more than pleasant.

David Platt Surfboard Restorations

David Platt - "I have a small ding repair and restoration business based on the NSW Central Coast 100km Nth of Sydney, Australia. This site has been set up to highlight the restoration side of the business. Restorations take time. There is plenty going on behind the scenes. 
So have a look at a new blog in my links. "dpsr behind the scenes." 
This has incorporated the photos link and will show the day to day stuff that goes on with the restorations and a bit more."

UNDER 9 FOOT & SINGLE 2014 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
This was a year of firsts for the Deus 9 Foot & Single festival. Not only were a flock of female cross-steppers dominating the Canggu river mouth, we also held our first annual Under 9 Foot & Single division. We decided to run the spur of the moment shortboard division because we’d (somehow) found ourselves with a bit of extra time. Needless to say, it was a hoot! And surfers who were at the beach early on the finals day (most with sever hangovers from the night of partying at the Temple) surfed four man heats, with the river mouth to themselves. As to be expected, the format was relaxed and competitors weren’t all that competitive, but the waves were fun and the skill level was high. The Under 9 Foot and Single division will become a staple in our festival for years to come and we can’t wait to see who turns up next year, when it’s not so spontaneous.

Nathan Strom | Surfer Magazine

Most 16-year-old surfers aren’t capable of threading heavy tubes on a 5'2" one day, then riding the nose on a 9'6" log the next, but Nathan Strom is a little ahead of the curve. That’s because Strom has spent the past few years getting the CliffsNotes from longboard icon and fellow San Diegan Joel Tudor. Under the tutelage of Tudor, Strom has dedicated himself to mastering a wide variety of craft, from single-fin longboards to twin-keel fish to high-performance thrusters. With a knack for adapting to various boards and conditions, Strom is quickly becoming one of California’s most versatile surfers.

Seís Gringos from Canvas Surfboards on Vimeo.
There's really nothing like going on a surf trip with some buddies and scoring some epic surf together. Bonfires, beers, getting lost, camping, flat tires, instant coffee, long windy roads, spearfishing, off-roading, and getting stuck in the sand are all components of a great road trip to Baja. Kameron Brown, Corey Colapinto, Sakae Patrick, Christian Wach, Carson Wach, and Evan Adamson adventure down into to Baja to score some perfect loggin' waves.

Twins & Fins

Twins & Fins from Manuel Portugal on Vimeo.

A bonita praia de Ribeira D’Ilhas junto à Ericeira recebeu um evento único e muito especial, o nome de Twins & Fins. No mesmo espaço conviveram durante dois dias culturas distintas mas ao mesmo tempo com muitas semelhanças, como são o motociclismo e o surf. Liberdade e criatividade são adjectivos comuns a qualquer uma destas culturas e confirmando isso mesmo os seguidores e amantes de ambos os géneros estiveram lado a lado num dos locais mais emblemáticos em Portugal para o surf.

The beautiful beach of Ribeira d'Ilhas close to Ericeira hosted an event unique and very special, by the name of Twins & Fins.

Freedom and creativity are common to any of these adjectives and cultures confirming that even the followers and lovers of both genders were side by side in one of the most emblematic places in Portugal for surfing.
