Surf News – The upcoming Roxy Pro – Laura Enever chill time

Whilst the men on the ASP are heading over to Jeffreys Bay, SA, the women are getting ready to flock over to Biarritz, France.

The home of European surfing, Biarritz will play host to the ASP Womens Longboard event and the ASP World Title event.

With the world title race officially on, Carrisa Moore seems to be extended the gap between poll position and the rest of the field. If all the elements combine, the young Hawaiian has the chance to bag the title at this early stage in Biarritz.

Tour ripper Laura Enever has been chilling with just one week to go. Taking a little time-out from the World Tour pressures is sometimes needed. Although she has bagged herself a few sweet little waves at the same time-off course!!

Check her out here sucking helium, smashing some waves, and visiting the Nike 6.0 HQ.

Surf News – Mr Price Pro Ballito 2011


Day 1 highlight
An ASP Prime event located in Ballito, South Africa. The comp kicked off on Monday with some immense conditions. Over-head, dredging barrels rifled down the point breaking boards and ego’s.

It also saw some of the worlds best surfers get slotted in some huge barrels. Stand out of the day had to be Kolohe Andino. The 17 year old got the barrel of his life and was justifiably rewarded with a perfect 10 point ride. Andino said “I’m on such high right now,” “These are some of the best waves I’ve surfed in my life!” .

Kolohe is on a roll at the minute coming off a win at the Quiksilver USA surfing championships in Cali. Everyone has big dreams for this boy, keep your eyes pealed.

The excelllent swell is set to continue. The entire surfing world will soon be setting up camp in South Africa as the ASP Billabong Pro at Jefferys bay kicks off next week. Who you got your money on, Slater, Jordy, Parko?

Surf Photography – Stuart Gibson Profile

No more do surf magazines require writing. Why? Because thanks to people like Stuart Gibson, the photographs do the talking.

There are plenty of surfers out there with a camera strapped around their neck trying to make a quick buck. Yet there are a select few that sit far above the majority. Gibson is up there with the best, top shelf material, Mt. Everest altitude, Eifel tower high- you get the point!

Being a world-class surf photographer you clearly need two things at your disposal; Crazy waves and crazy surfers. Gibson has both only a stones throw away from his doorstep.

He hails from the wild, rugged region of Tasmania, Australia. This beautiful yet difficult region is battered by huge storms, thus producing serious waves of consequence. This is not Hawaii, the surf community is small, tight, and have to brave the elements on a regular basis to score. Also, they are no pussycats, they take huge beatings at spots you would only watch from dry land.

Anyway let’s get to the snaps. Stuart has been photographing possibly the heaviest wave in the world;Shipsterns Bluff, so watch out for those ones.

This is just a fraction of what Stuart Gibson has to offer, please check out his sites at
