The North Shore in winter is NOT ‘the Mecca of surfing’ as previously, erroneously, reported by this and every other surf magazine. Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is actually the Haleiwa of Islam. It’s that way around. Whereas every able bodied muslim is expected to go to Mecca once in his or her life, every self- respecting surfer should do at least six North Shore pilgrimages, funds permitting, before they perish and rot silently back into the cool, dark humus.
Southeast Asia seems like a rite of passage destination for most twenty-somethings these days, whether it be on a pre or post Uni gap year travel around Indo China, or for an extended break to Thailand. The amazing weather, top class nightlife and incredible value for money once you’re there are the key draws, but it’s also a ripe destination for a surf trip.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ main man Anthony Kiedis charged the perfect barrelling waves of Siargao after their successful concert during the 7107 International Music Festival in Clark Field Pampanga.

His latest creation: a penis-shaped and colored surfboard that, with a 2+1 fin setup, has a bit of range in performance. It can be ridden a few different ways, but Fish opted for the twin fin here. And judging from this clip, he does it pretty well, claiming to have one-upped Otton.
The resurgence of finless surfing started in Noosa when Jacob Stuth rode an alaia on the afternoon of March 5, 2005. He traversed across an open shoulder faster than anyone could have imagined on an Ancient Hawaiian alaia replica. Since then, the alaia has gathered a cult following around the world. The buzz you get from riding across an open wave is exhilarating, and many seasoned surfers have said that it brings back the grommet stoke of surfing all over again.
Welcome to the 2014 Airline Surfboard Boardbag Fee Guide For Surfers. Every overseas surf trip usually starts and ends with gripes about surfboard baggage fees. We complain that it’s unfair and outrageous (because it is), but let’s face it, prices are only going up from here, so it’s time we do a little research before we go.
