At first glance we thought this was Kolohe pulling into a tube from Hawaii this season, but then watching the video clip here at Surfing Magazine it’s looking more like HT’s. Not many Californians can get a wave in Hawaii this good or a tube this big. On that note that is why we we’re so blown away when we first saw this thinking Kolohe got a wave that big in Hawaii (something only Tom Curren has frequently pulled off). Either way we are stoked for Kolohe nabbing another cover!

Kelly made his showing this morning at The Lane as he hasn’t surfed here in over 18 years. We are guessing he hasn’t missed it!
A few other surfers that we’re out in the line up
Darryl “Flea” Virostko (we asked Flea, “so what has Kelly have to say?” “That last wave he took he said that was his best wave he has ever had here”. “Do you want a shot of you and him together?” “It’s alright, I already got my shot of him next to me getting 2nd place to my 1st at Mavericks.” That is Flea’s claim to fame as he reminded us of him beating Kelly 3 times in one day at the Mav’s comp.)

Kolohe Andino chose to take it into the air, despite his injured foot
FCS is pleased to announce the signing of USA surfing phenomenon Kolohe Andino to an exclusive deal that will see him riding Genuine FCS fins and systems, and FCS boardbags and leashes for the next 5 years.
On a side note we have a strong feeling Kolohe will be surfing in the Hurley Pro next week knowing he is once again surfing.
On Thursday Kolohe was surfing Riviera in San Clemente where he flew out in the flats on a wave and has injured his foot. Kolohe is currently in 17th place on the WQS (one world rankings) and 26th on the WCT. Kolohe will be out of the water for up to 10 weeks in which he will be missing the 6* Prime Mr. Price Pro in Balito as well as the 6* in Jeffreys Bay both in South Africa and the 6* Prime Nike US Open in Huntington Beach. He is hoping to be well by the Hurley Pro WCT at Lowers which begins September 16th.
949 Kolohe Black $40.00
We’re calling this one the 949 Kolohe Black. Kolohe Andino helped Herbie design it himself. This traction pad is flat with no arch – ’cause that’s how Kolohe rides ‘em, and Kolohe is a beast! There are multi-holes for maximum suction and 45 degree to vert kicktail for those of you who aren’t afraid to bust out and test your limits. This Astrodeck pad is two inches larger than our other pads, and you know what they say: the bigger the better! (If you dig the 949 Kolohe Black, check out the 949 Kolohe Kolor!)
