  • Wetsuit Test: Body Glove Red Cell slant zip fullsuit

    WETSUIT-REVIEW: At its most basic, the Red Cell infrared insulation is a polyester resin material that redirects heat from your body, back into your skin and muscles. Infrared performance and recovery sportswear is big business. There is an algae bloom of sporting clothes using this tech for pro athletes as well as average Joes and Janes with claims are that muscles are looser and energised from the material during strenuous periods.

  • Is this the best wavepool tech yet? 360 degree wave making

    WAVEPOOLS: It’s not Kelly’s Wave, and it’s not Wavegarden. Operating from a central hub that spits out sets 360 degrees to all directions, the new tech sends out sets of varying sizes to waiting reefs, points and bays built within a man-made lake. Visualize a stone dropping in a pond with waves radiating outward.

  • Hawaiian Ezekiel Lau takes HIC Pro title at Sunset

    WSL QS: Hawaiian Ezekiel Lau hammered out his second victory at the HIC Pro today after taking on a beast heat that included Australia’s Wade Carmichael, Maui’s Tanner Hendrickson and North Shore’s Mason Ho at Sunset Beach. This win grants Lau 3,000 points and moves him up three spots on the Qualifying Series (QS) ranking to the No. 9 position, after coming off of a massive win

  • Tested: The Stan by Saint Jacques hits new frontier in wetties

    WETSUIT-REVIEW: Saint Jacques, a brand out of Mediterranean France is creating stylish, innovative performance wetsuits by using a deep sublimation technology to pattern their suits to look more like clothing. For this review we tested their 4/3 mm Stan model, a deep blue neoprene full suit with red and white stripe pattern adoring the arms and torso. It’s a unique design done as a performance model winter suit with full high-end stretch neoprene and minimal seam restriction.

  • Wetsuit Review: Body Glove's 3/2 Vapor zipperless fullsuit

    WETSUIT-REVIEW: Why does the Body Glove Vapor Zipperless work? For the most part a zipperess entry system allows more flexibility through the chest than traditional anchored-front-zip systems. The advantage is that the soft, stretchy neoprene is allowed to be soft, stretchy neoprene unencumbered by a static, glued-in-place heavy duty zipper.

  • Gabriel Medina wins MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal

    WSL CT: Gabriel Medina has won the MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal over Julian Wilson in a rematch of their 2012 final at Supertubos. The event culminated in good three-to-five foot waves with Medina’s victory, the eighth event title of his career, only a short ten days after the Brazilian won in France.

  • Air games decide quarterfinalists at Supertubos

    WSL CT: The MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal resumed in clean three-to-five foot surf at Supertubos. Competition ran through the all important Rounds 4 and 5 to decide the event’s Quarterfinalists and prepare for an exciting finish on Wednesday.

  • Wetsuit Reviews: "The Victor" from Saint Jacques

    WETSUIT-REVIEW: The Victor wetsuit visually conveys style rather than technological athleticism. Which actually works because at this stage in the wetsuit game all companies have access to the same high-quality neoprenes, linings, tapes, zippers and builds. It’s no longer necessary for a wetsuit to visually say “I’m high-tech and space age and here are my compression bands and patterned torque panels to prove it.”

  • Creators: The best known unknown in surf, Jim Russi

    CREATORS: The day Jim Russi graduated and collected his Bachelor of Arts degree from Brooks Institute in 1979 he left Santa Barbara for Hawaii’s North Shore and a week-long surf vacation. Once there however, that one-week vacation stretched into a 35 plus year adventure capturing the winter surf action on the North Shore.

  • Reflect on Moore & Medina's Roxy and Quik Pro France wins

    WSL CT: Gabriel Medina and Carissa Moore claimed victory today at the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro France, respectively, in excellent three-to-five foot rippable peaks at Stop No. 9 of the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT).
