Kelly Slater add’s another 1 to his 10, to make it 11 world titles.

I used to wish I could have stood on the beach and seen the legendary surf sessions that happened at Off The Wall, back in the late 70’s with legends like Gerry Lopez, Mark Richards, Shaun Thompson, Buttons and more. Of course, had I actually been there, I’d be another 10 years older most likely, […]

The Pipeline book by Surfline

Surfline recently published a large coffee table book, simply called “The Pipeline”. It’s an amazing 200 page package that covers everything Pipeline, ranging from the old days right through just about every major moment, ever captured there. The place has a much more colorful past than most surf destinations and it thoroughly is deserving of […]

Kelly Slater | 10 world titles | Where to now?

Kelly Slater at the Pipemasters, Dec the 16th, 2010. was this Kelly's last appearance on the world tour?

I just watched Jeremy Flores convincingly come from behind in both the semi final against Kelly Slater and then against Kieren Perrow in the final of the PipeMasters, both times, needing a giant seemingly unatainable score in the dying moments of the heat and he did it both times. Top effort there from the french […]

Another magazine cover, this one from Portugal

Kelly Slater on the cover of Surf Portugal #155

I actually had these folks at Surf Portugal contact me recently because they owed me a bunch of money. They also sent me some magazines, one of them a cover shot of mine from about 5 years ago but I only just got to see it. Just thought I’d share this story with you. Sometimes, […]

Taj Burrow takes the 2009 Pipe Masters mantel

They ran the finals of the Pipe Masters yesterday and although it wasn’t exactly real Pipeline, it was a lot better than some previous finals days. At least we had tubes offer. There was only one Hawaiian surfer left in the mix, my good friend Flynn Novak who was up against Kelly Slate. Flynn’s the […]

Eddie Aikau, to Go or not to Go!

There’s all kinds of rumors running rampant around the north shore right now. Some crew even reckon the national guard is coming in tonight to road block the north shore and that it will be this way for 2 days. If that happens, what will become of the Eddie Aikau big wave surfing invitational, which […]

The 10 best world champion surfers of all time

I was talking with a friend about the ten best surfers on the planet and I was thinking how impossible, it felt to pick just 10 as it’s not really set in stone. There’s so many factors that governs one choices. At least with actual world champions, it is set in stone, so it was […]

Flashback to 1994 and a young Kelly

It was my 2nd season on the north shore, the 94-95 season, and Kelly was dominating the Pipemasters for the second of what has now become 6 victories there. Pretty much round this time, he was untouchable out at Pipe, just doing stuff that crew hadn’t even seen there before. I think this was right […]
