Retro clip cool: 2008, the year of promise and the great recession

News, Television

Are we deep enough into the wave pool blitz to have a nostalgia movement yet? 2008 was a crucial juncture in human-made wave development. Kelly Slater and Greg Webber tussled with their respective designs and the world’s largest surf shop, Ron Jons, was in the midst of an Orlando pool build. At the height of it all was this four-minute

Tour the world’s wave pools from space

News, Television

Surf exploration used to be full of mystery. The first generation of adventurers poured over nautical logs and maps then hit the coastal deserts and jungles of the world. It was analog adventuring at its finest. It was also random. Surfers hoping to discover a new Jeffreys Bay were just as likely to sit out a flat spell on a

Off-the-cuff-airs: Jacob Szekely lights up Waco

News, Television

There’s a wonderful reckless abandon to Jason Szekely’s airs, like he didn’t decide what move he was gonna do until mid-flight. It looks sometimes haphazard, but then, he pulls it. We became fans after watching the evolution of his judo airs at the Waco wave pool, a maneuver that somehow evolved into something completely different mid-ride. By the end of

Clip Candy: Shane Dorian and son Jackson’s wave pool tour

Latest, Television

It seems an odd swap, the lava and deep blue of Hawaii for the cattle-lot and roadside expanse of inland America. But Shane Dorian and son Jackson have ditched Island salt for wave pool fresh recently. Lured from their home by the Mainland’s best, the Dorians recently scored both Kelly’s and Waco. In a series of YouTube posts last year

Exaimine the difference in shape and speed between BSR Surf Resort, Kelly's Wave, Snowdonia, Surf Lakes and Wavegarden's Cove set up. They are all very different waves. If we had to pick one common wave trait for pools it'd be that the pocket of the wave tends to be tight. But apart from that, length of ride, hollow sections, air

Television: Can’t wait for Melbourne

News, Television

Video homage to patience and Urbnsurf's full-size Wavegarden Cove… Once upon a time there were posters of kittens suspended by their front paws with the words “hang in there baby.” There were several varieties and knock-offs but all were ubiquitous to school offices in the 1980s. Wave pool enthusiasts are counting the days until Urbnsurf Melbourne is finished and the

TV: Under-the-radar pros hit the Waco pool

Latest, Television

We love the RVCA surf team. They are low-key and a bit off-kilter. Ford Archbold and Luke Davis are pro surfing misfits who shy away from the limelight yet somehow collect a paycheck from their sponsors. How? We think it’s their electric surfing and kinetic energy in the ocean or a wave pool. Joined by Hawaii’s Noah Beschen, the team

So yeah, it does flow like a Red Bull advert but Sally throws a few air-reverses and fin-slides in this 2012 edit from long before the world had wave pool fever. Does Wadi Wadi hold a candle to Kelly’s? No, but it still looks plenty fun and Sally shows off her world-title contender flare.
