WINTERLUST

by Tommy Barrels on February 22, 2017



‘WINTERLUST’ featuring a handful of surfers – Oliver Kurtz, Noah Wegrich, Mitch Coleborn, and Colin Moran were headed away from their natural habitat and into the frozen unknown at the very same time. For the next few days, they discovered a new definition of “scoring” at Mammoth Mountain. And once they returned to their accustomed, liquid-form water, the coast had come alive. Here’s their story – a journey into interdisciplinary shredding, of sorts.

Stab in the Dark: Volume 2 – Seal Approved

by Tommy Barrels on October 20, 2016


Dane Reynolds deciding on the eventual winner of 2016 Stab in the Dark contest, #74 by Pyzel Surfboards.

Following the success of the ‘Stab in the Dark’ competition featuring Julian Wilson, the team over at Stab decided double down and do Stab in the Dark 2016. In partnership with some big names like Swell and Corona Extra, Stab flew former WCT surfer Dayne Reynolds aka ‘Seal Tooth’ out 40 hours from Los Angeles to Johannesburg, South Africa on one mission. To find the best surfboard or shaper in the world.

Please note though: These surfboards may not give you the ability to surf like Dane…

With a 10 day time limit in June, Dane was the perfect candidate to test out 13 high performance surfboards with his go-for-broke style. The boards had no name, no dimensions and no distinguishing markings (other than their shapes). The amount of boards was this year bumped up from 11 to 13 with Dayne required to surf at least twice on each model to help him make the decision. Narrowing down his selection from 13 toa final four, Dane finally selected #74 shaped by Pyzel Surfboards, Jon Pyzel as his number one pick.

“I’m kind of saving this wave for good waves because it looks good. It kind of looks like a low rocker looks like it should be pretty drivey and hopefully good for today.”

The #74 was a 6’0 X 19 1/18 x 2 3/8 and was suited for Dane’s style of surfing.

“I kind of went through and rode the ones I was digging the last few and rode them later when it (surf) was better.” he said.

Dane noted on his sheet that the board was best suited for 5ft tubes and cutbacks.

“#74 and #31 (JS) are more drivey, down the line, point break boards, but both of them have really good qualities that I really like surfing. If I were going to go surf right now, fun waves, I would be the most excited to surf this (Pyzel), so I’m going to deem it the winner.”

Baguettes & Barrels

by Tommy Barrels on October 5, 2016

Baguettes & Barrels: Welcome to the Quicksilver Pro France.

Following the conclusion of the final event of the European leg of the WQS, The Billabong Pro Cascais, our eyes turn to the beach breaks of Hossegor for the Quicksilver Pro France. Historically the European leg has been critical to a solid world title campaign. The back to back events of France and Portugal can create some serious momentum coming into the final event at Pipeline or leave contenders wondering where it all went wrong. Hossegor is a break that serves up some of the best beach breaks in the world providing world class barrels along one of Europe’s most consistent stretches of coastline. Despite this it’s also incredibly tidal and conditions can change completely within the space of a heat.

Following his win at the Hurley Pro – Trestles, Jordy Smith has closed the gap on the top 3 after they where all eliminated early. Heading into France John John Florence has a slight lead over Gabriel Medina who has pushed early ratings leader Matt Wilkinson back to 3rd. Jordy Smith moves into 4th while Kelly Slater and Joel Parkinson have made solid moves inside the top ten to take 5th & 6th respectively.

JOHN JOHN FLORENCE: John is the current ratings leader and a former event champion, defeating Jadson Andre in 2014. There is a difference to his surfing this year, John is hungrier and more focused that ever, reflecting on his positioning in the ratings, however he has failed to take advantage of fellow contenders being eliminated early in the last two events. This has historically been one of his strongest events picking up a 1st, 3rd and two 5th’s in his last 4 starts. The heaving barrels and ramps that Hossegor provide suit the explosive and unpredictable surfing from JJF that we all know and love.

GABRIEL MEDINA: Medina has the best record of any surfer in France over the last 5 years, bagging two wins, a second and two fifth place finishes. Now that’s some consistency! Last year it was Gabriel’s aerial game which took him to the top of the podium, no doubt he’ll be looking to replicate his form last year to try and catch John John in the ratings lead.

Gabriel rides FCS fins

JOSH KERR: Kerrzy started slow this year with a sting of poor results in the Australian leg and Brazil before finding some form in the arguably better waves of J-Bay, Trestles and the Pacific. Kerr is still one of the best all round competitors on tour shaking his label as a small wave surfer with impressive results at waves such as Teahupoo & Pipeline which will come in handy given the current conditions in France.

Josh rides Rusty Surfboards.

KOLOHE ANDINO: Quite like French wine, Andino’s surfing is getting better with age. Coincidently he is having his best year on tour sitting inside the top 10 coming into the European leg. Growing up surfing the beach breaks of San Clemente, Kolohe will feel more than at home in the beachies at Hossegor.

Kolohe rides Lost Surfboards.

RYAN CALLINAN: Ryan’s first year on tour has been one to forget with the Novocastrian failing to progress further than round 3. Ryan’s year hasn’t been all bad though, he has released some of the most highly talked about video parts this year and is currently sitting 9th on the WQS heading into Hawaii. Ryan is still searching for his breakthrough result and after a quarter final finish at Cascais he will be full of confidence.
