Biarritz Belza Classic

Biarritz Belza Classic from RVCA on Vimeo.
The Biarritz Belza Classic, a 16-longboarder invitational surf event, took place September 24 at the famous iconic surf location of la Cote des Baques, Biarritz, in France.

With former WSL World No. 2 Antoine Delpero (Bidart, FRA) clinching the very 1st edition of what shall become an annual long boarding happening, there was no shortage of performance during a full day of action blessed with perfect weather and pristine wave conditions. With both male and female competitors gathering in a laid-back authentic moment, it is with great pride that RVCA helped put the inaugural edition up, with a promising future of many more to come.

Check out video recap’ and photography from a day at the beach, in the Indian summer vibe of Biarritz here:

One California Winter Day | Devon Howard

One California Winter Day -- Devon Howard from Devon Howard on Vimeo.
This edit by Erik Derman was seen on Surfline a few years ago but I've been told no one can find it so we are reposting it here. Why the hood? Well for one, it was freezing water temps. For two, this Patagonia R2 has the benefits of a lightweight 3/2 but the warmth of a 4/3 because of the integrated hood. It's my favorite suit ever. Warmer core temp helps keep these old bones lubed up, and the suit is light enough to feel spunky and spy on the water. Ha! Enjoy.

A Frequency of Tranquility

A Frequency of Tranquility from EZEKIEL on Vimeo.
This winter, three of the Ezekiel Surf Club members - Nick Maimone, Travis Harder, and Kyle Kennelly - took a break from the rapid velocity of life in the city and took to the countryside in search of serenity, surf, and speculation. Sometimes it can be difficult to hear yourself think in a metropolis, these gentlemen broke away from the grind in search of some headspace. This short by Michael Cukr documents their vacation. An inward self-discovery through the medium of wave riding, time spent trotting along rolling hills in search of silence and the organic sounds of the earth washing over.

Deflow Fins

Awesome post about the new Deflow Fins from my good friend Ignacio "Chuk" Solis!

Diario de un Churfer - Los nuevos modelos de Deflow Fins ya están disponibles. Se han currado unas colaboraciones muy interesantes, nada más y nada menos que con Margaux Arramon-Tucoo, Clovis Donizetti y James Parry. Cada uno ha puesto un poco de lo que le gusta y les han salido unas quillas con una pinta extraordinaria. Ha sido un trabajo largo, probando cosas y haciendo cambios sutiles en las formas. Diseñadas aquí, hechas en California con una calidad increíble.
Muy recomendables…

Each has a little of what you like and have left some keels with an extraordinary painting. It has been a long job, trying things and making subtle changes in the forms. Designed here (Spain), made in California with amazing quality.

Deus Nine Foot & Single

Deus Nine Foot & Single from Arturo Dedace III on Vimeo.
The Nine Foot & Single Men's Invitational was the highlight of the event held by Deus Ex Machina in Bali last May 28, 2016.

With a solid swell pumping in Bali, the Pererenan Right in Canggu gave the earlier rounds a wild start. Then, just before the semi-finals started, the conditions cleared up and offered perfect combination of tough but fun waves - huge and clean right handers with a variety of sections for the participants to show off their skills:
a solid drop, a nice barreling section, steep walls for nose riding, and a hackable section at the inside for a strong finish.

Jared Mell, Josh Constable, Jye Byrnes, and Harrison Roach charged the finals. All of them surfed using their self-shaped logs which were all as beautiful and elegant as their surfing.

This video also features surfing by Deni Blackboys, Yuta Sezuta, and others.

Surfshaper JOY from MERA on Vimeo.
Документальный фильм об истории создания досок для сёрфинга и сёрфере Джое.

"Первая доска, которую я сделал была доска фиш 6'2 фута красного цвета. Я думал что она идеальная до того момента, когда я попробовал прокатиться на ней, спустя 5 минут пребывания в воде моя доска набрала лишних 10 кг, швы были не герметичны и она впитала воду как губка, после этого я начал изучать и совершенствовать свое мастерство шейпера."

A documentary about the history of surfboards and surfer Joy..

"My first board was red fish 6'2 ft. I thought it was ideal until I tried using it. After being in the water for 5 minutes my board gained 10 extra kgs , joints were not airtight and it absorbed the water like a sponge. After that I started studying and developing my skills of a shaper."

The Stories We Wear: Tom Doidge-Harrison

Out on the west coast of Ireland, Patagonia Surf Ambassador Tom Doidge-Harrison spends his time chasing waves and honing his craft shaping surfboards. “You don’t need all this stuff,” says Tom as he talks about the jacket he’s shaped five hundred boards in, “you just need one that works properly and try to make it last as long as you can.” Our clothes not only serve us with warmth and protection, they carry our stories — surfboard foam shavings and all. That’s what makes them worth hanging onto, repairing and using as long as possible; a virtue that comes naturally to Tom.

I have been using this as my inspiration reel for a couple years now. When i first got my Australian Slasher made by Ian Chisholm, i looked everywhere for clips of people riding similar designs so i could sort out the origional intent behind this style board. Aside from all the modern footage of Al Knost and Dane Peterson and the obvious others who rip on Involvement style logs, its nice to dig into the history books to see Involvement logging in its heyday with the masters behind the wheel. -cj

9'4" Mr. Rodgers | Bing Surfboards

9'4" Mr. Rodgers

Fins: Single box, fiberglass fin included
Color: Clear volan top and bottom, 2-stringer (bass) with black foam t-band and offset glue lines, gloss/polish

Designed in collaboration with Bing rider, Mick Rodgers, the Mr. Rodgers is a Nuuhiwa/Rick Noserider-influenced noserider that is designed for ample lift while still maintaining forward trim speed and turning ability. The blended concave creates smooth noserides and control on the tip, and the slightly pulled in nose fits snugly in the pocket. The gradual curve in the outline compliments the turned-up rail-line in the tail allowing loose smooth turns and more control when setting up for noserides. The slight roll in the bottom and flatter rocker creates smoother transitions and improved trim. The Mr. Rodgers performs in a variety of conditions but excels in points and beach breaks, especially if there’s a little punch. Average nose: 18”, Average tail: 16 ½”

I'm not the same guy
You got it wrong
Someone else made you cry

What do you mean?
What did I say?
Does it matter that I've Changed?

Well I was wrong and it's a shame
When you know, when it's gone

You've gotta start from right back where
You are... in the beginning

I tried again, it's the first time today
I promised mom
Not treat myself this way

But life is mean
And I can't be blamed
If it's difficult to change
I'm sorry yall
and it's a shame

When you know, when it's gone

You've gotta start from right back where
You are... in the beginning"

Interview with Tyler Warren

Tyler Warren


"Some say idle hands make for the devil’s handiwork. If this is true, then we might start classifying Tyler Warren as the patron saint of a new generation of surfers who splatter as much paint and resin as sea foam at their favorite point breaks.

Okay sure, sainthood is admittedly a ways off. But speaking with Tyler is like talking to a craftsman who seems to know something you don’t. It’s almost as if he sees something in the world that you don’t see. Maybe it’s his SoCal roots. Maybe it’s his family history in the arts (his mother’s great uncle was close friends with Frida and Diego Rivera). Regardless, once you get a whiff of his sun-soaked paintings and boards you’re able to get a taste of his vision, his love for the ocean, and his passion for the craft."

Future Islands - "Balance"

"You can clean around the wound
But if you want it to heal,
It just takes time.
And you can call up to the moon
But if you want something to change
You gotta change your life
And take your time

It just takes time
It just takes time
It just takes time
All of your time

And the sun will leave the room
Leave you to the night
And that's alright
Because before the morning comes,
There's a certain calm
And then there's light

It just takes time
It just takes time
Oh, just your time
You can change your life
It just takes time
Oh trust in your time

And I can sit and talk
'cause I was just like you
So arrogant and brave
Impetuous and crude
But trust me as a friend
And I'll do all that I can do
And I'll do anything for you
Because I want to see you through.

It just takes time
All of your time
You can change your life
It just takes time
A little trust in your time
A little trust in your time
A little trust in your time
It just takes time
Just your time
All of your time
All of your time
All of your time."
