While most of the events on the ASP World Tour are featured at fixed world-class surf locations like Lower Trestles, Jeffreys Bay and Pipeline, the Rip Curl Pro Search introduces a different venue for the world's greatest surfers to compete in each year. Over the past six years, the Rip Curl Pro Search has been held at Reunion Island, Mainland Mexico, Chile, Bali, Portugal, and Puerto Rico, where Kelly Slater won his unprecedented 10th ASP World Title. This year, the Rip Curl Pro Search is coming to San Francisco, where from November 1st - 11th the top surfers in the world will be surfing the frigid, churning waters of Ocean Beach.

MotoX Rider Impales Face with Branch

We haven't shown MotoX love on T.E.S. in a while. Well, here you go. Here's a guy who had a piece of a tree or branch or whatever the f*ck it is impaled in his face. Literally. Warning, the video is pretty graphic. And kind of awesome, if you're into this sort of thing.

Top 5 Surfers to Win the ASP World Tour (Besides Slater)

Jordy Smith.jpg

Jordy Smith

            This is a pretty brain dead pick only because he is the most exciting surfer on tour and he finished second in the world last year (with a couple shocker results). Jordy is starting to evolve into a perfect contest surfer. With the new criteria changes and his surfing ability and style, its not a question of if with Jordy, but more of a question of when. Jordy has the perfect balance of power with huge hacks on open faces as we have seen at Snapper, Bells, Lowers, and most importantly J-Bay. He also has the amazing arsenal of airs that he can do pretty much anywhere at any time. The one aspect I have seen him need improvement in is the heavier waves on tour being Tahiti and Pipeline. He has been able to hold his own but not become a standout just yet and that may be due to lack of water time in those specific spots but as I stated earlier this is just a matter of when not if. Maybe a little coaching and advice from a fellow South African, Shaun Thompson, could guide him in the right direction as far as Pipeline is concerned. I’m predicting the over-under on wins for Jordy this year at 2. Hopefully we will see him dominate as the hype predicted and take charge of the new generation on tour.

Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Award Nominees Announced

BillabongXXL11DorianJaws.jpg

The Billabong XXL Awards reward the craziest and most talented of big wave surfers. Those who have accomplished what was previously considered the impossible. An awards ceremony is held annually at the Grove Theater in Anaheim, California, a raucous affair that rewards cash and accolades to the best of the big wave surfing community. There is usually a minimal amount of controversy that accompanies the awards show due to a correlation between Billabong's sponsorship of the event and winners who are mostly sponsored by Billabong. Regardless, it doesn't take away from marveling at the feats accomplished by some of the best surfers in the world.

An Interview with South African Big Wave Surfer Frank Solomon

The right of passage to surf in a contest at Maverick's involves years of making appearances at the famed big wave location, proving to your peers that not only can you handle one of the most dangerous waves in the world, but that you have an innate passionate for it. For some big wave surfers, it can take years before any sort of recognition is made, and even then there's a very good chance that the alternate list will evade the prospective surfer. As the popularity of big wave surfing, especially at Maverick's, continues to grow, so to does the challenge of earning a place amongst the competitors at Maverick's.

Terrible news to report regarding Hawaiian big wave surfer Sion Milosky, who was surfing Maverick's late yesterday. Maverick's surfer Matt Ambrose informed me that Milosky passed away Wednesday evening surfing large conditions at Maverick's, with forecasters calling for set waves measuring in excess of 30 feet.

Kelly Slater Wins Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast

Kelly Slater 2.jpg

When Kelly Slater doesn't care, Kelly Slater wins.

If there is ever a constant in professional surfing, one surefire guarantee you can always count on, it's that the greatest surfer ever, Kelly Slater, absolutely dominates the World Tour even more so than he usually does when he has no care in the world for results.
