“The wave wasn’t that great, I was just trying to make something happen. I was kinda between two airs on that; I wanted to do an air reverse and land in the flats, but once I was up there I thought I should do a straight air and clear it. It was a lofty section.” – Kelly Slater
If you have been at your local store and noticed no Surfer or Surfing magazine (now distributed/published by The Enthusiast Network TEN) we don’t know when they will return. Today at Ralphs we received confirmation from an employee that Source Interlink was distributing the magazine and Source Interlink Distribution has now gone out of business. We made a call to The Enthusiast Network and the operator does not have any answers to when Surfer and Surfing magazine will be available at stores.
“Up for grabs for the Dogtown bros is a program from Jay Adams Memorial, Celebration of Life and the Paddle Out held in Venice, CA. For those who couldn’t make it, I have a few of them left. Own one to honor Jay’s legacy he left with all of us. The proceeds are going to Tracy and family. Peace” – EBAY

“Teahupoo gave me a good old fashion flogging yesterday on my 3rd wave. I let go of the rope on an a evil little west one. It was a pretty slow swell an although I should of kicked out I decided to go anyway. I could tell the lump of swell was going into the channel which generally means it’s a close out or a really fast west one. I hit my head on the bottom an must have blacked out because the next thing I can remember is being in the lagoon gasping for air in calm water. Apparently there was a bigger wave behind an no one saw me surface so I’m not sure if I had a 2 wave hold down or the wave I was on sent me straight to the lagoon. Either way I’m really Lucky an grateful I’m still here. I got myself a broken jaw some stitches in my lip an eye lid whip lash to my neck an back and a couple small puncher wounds that went through my neck an into the back of my mouth that apparently just missed an artery. Just want to thank every one who helped me though out yesterday really appreciate it! I’m all good an as positive as ever! I’ll be back when my jaw is good.” – Laurie Towner
“It’s been a hilarious couple of days with Hollywood trying to shut it off to the locals which failed miserably, Hawaiian water patrol flipping skis, a fight out the back amongst a couple of very well-known riders and basically all the superstar riders being dominated by a 16-year-old local.” – Hollywood comes to Teahupoo
