I’ve been feeling the opposing forces lately. The ones that try to drain my energy by holding my thoughts hostage in old patterns that are destructive to my creativity, work, and potential. Some days, those forces win. Today they didn’t. There is power in co-existing; not running but reframing.
🏄♂️ SURFER TIPS - 5 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR WETSUIT LAST LONGER:
1 ➡️ Protect it with a changing mat - @west.path makes a sick changing bag and mat all in one!
2 ➡️ Rinse off the inside and outside with fresh water after use - @rinsekitusa pressurized portable shower makes this possible right when you get out of the water!
3➡️ Hang it up over the waist- @godryhanger has been designed to hold the heaviest wetsuits!
4➡️ Dry it off in the shade - sunlight and heat may damage the fabric
5➡️ Spray it regularly with an all-natural deodorizer - @surfremedy will do the job to get rid of the horrible smell of wet surf gear.

We'll begin with a spin traveling in the world of my creation.

“The City of Honolulu’s argument is essentially this: the World Surf League (@wsl) applied to host a number of surf contests during the 2018/2019 winter including the Pipe Masters in December 2018 and the Volcom Pipe Pro in January 2019. According to Andrew Perreira, Public Information Officer for Mayor Caldwell’s office, the League made city officials aware of its intent to change the January @volcom Pipe Pro to a January Pipe Masters on December 13th – 35 days after the November 9th deadline to make modifications to its permitting application.
The WSL’s argument that the change to the Volcom Pipe Pro would be in name alone is the primary point of contention between the League and the City of Honolulu. ‘The events are completely different in terms of their impact,’ Perreira told The Inertia. ‘The Pipe Masters attracts 8,000 people and the Pipe Pro attracts 1,500 people.’” - The Inertia’s Dylan Heyden (@hey_dylan)

“For a heat, that’s the biggest Pipe I’m ever going to surf.” When @seabassz has the jitters, you know things are hairy on the North Shore. Finals day at the @volcom Pipe Pro was a day for the books—massive and unruly, it delivered a show for the spectators that won’t soon be forgotten. In round 4, @camrichards threw down a heat total of 19.83. But as is often the case with days like this one, local knowledge played a big factor in who emerged victoriously. Despite Jamie O’Brien’s (@whoisjob) perfect ten, @joshmoniz found his way to a win and put on a spectacle for the ages.

“Norwegian surfing is not for the faint of heart. Even summers feel cold. But mid-winter is the real deal. When the waves are firing, the temperatures hit rock bottom. Some people call that hardcore, others say it’s heroic. But what you see here is pure madness. @surfnorge, Norway’s only independent surf magazine, showcased some truly freezing surf sessions when they launched a recent photo contest. As entrants to the cleverly titled the Ice Breaker category, these girls of Hoddevik decided to up the stakes. They stripped down to their bikinis and embarked upon the coldest session possible.” - Hendrik Bydal

TAG a friend you need to ride this NOVELTY standing wave with!
This is the biggest and most powerful stationary surf wave ever created.
Built by @unit_parktech in Germany at @surf_langenfeld , it will potentially pop up all over the world giving landlock surfers access to a 5ft wave without having to check the forecast.
Their innovative technology doesn’t require much energy to be powered, making it the most eco-friendly artificial deep water wave out there!

BIG WAVE SURFING ➡️ SAFETY FIRST WITH @quiksilver & @aqualungdivers
One factor that comes into play above anything else in big wave surfing is safety. Riding those monsters requires intense physical and mental preparation, excellent knowledge of the spot, and the right equipment. Luckily, @quiksilver has spent years developing a new safety tool:
HIGHLINE AIRLIFT VEST ➡️ created in collaboration with @aqualungdivers
WHO IS THIS FOR ➡️ This innovative inflation vest helps reduce the risks of big-wave surfing, and allows the riders who are capable of charging those beasts to push their limits even further. It has already been put to work by big wave surfing legends @peter_mel, @jamie_mitcho and @peyolizarazu.
PRICE ➡️ With a $1,000 price tag, some might be hesitant to buy. But do you really need to look at the price when it comes to safety? Plus, it'll let you surf the wave of a lifetime! .
AWARDS ➡️ No surprise that this has won the ISPO Award 2018 in the Outdoor segment, category Water Sports Safety.
Speaking about big wave surfing, the Nazaré Challenge is scheduled to run tomorrow with waves expected to reach the 25’-35’ ft range 😱

“This past Saturday, a flock of politicians sporting Hawaiian shirts and Birdwell jackets gathered in the seminal little surf town of Hermosa Beach alongside its famous Tim Kelly statue. They were fenced by piles of surfboards with a crowd of people standing by, man of them sweating in their 4/3 fullsuits. The occasion? State Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi and Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon had called for a press conference about their co-authored AB 1782, which, if passed, will cement surfing as the state sport of California.
Muratsuchi and Calderon are avid surfers. Calderon was a strong competitor in the @nssasurf and Muratsuchi is frequently seen on South Bay beaches. Both have felt and witnessed the sport’s impact personally and are now working to bring recognition to the path California has paved for advancements and popularization of surfing. For the sake of surf speak, these dudes are stoked.” - Morgan Sliff (@jahmorgan)

Nazaré is a place where local knowledge rules. There is a dedicated crew of surfers there who are on every single swell, come hell or high water. @lucaschumbo is one of them, and it’s high time he won a @wsl Big Wave Tour event. There is no better place for him to stand at the top of the podium than Nazaré, and on Sunday, he did just that. Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca is only 21-years-old, but he’s already proven himself to be a person of extraordinary talent in waves most people would run from. Especially at Nazaré, where he does a lot more than just ride waves—Chumbinho toys with one of the most dangerous waves on Earth. Take, for instance, this floater on a 15-foot left...

Best fin packaging in the game goes to @dragboardco 🤙🏻 “Your paddle game feeling somewhat bland? Your feet craving a little extra thrust? Why not treat them both to flavor town with a carton of Malaysia’s finest!
Each comes packed with a hit of two darts, both featuring an ultra soft recycled tar compound foot pocket for a sophisticated smoothness, a stuffed curved blade for bitey thrust + a classic circular drainage filter to reduce sand yields.
WARNING ***** A single drag is the first step towards addiction, get help before it’s too late
