Mick Fanning will join the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Kirra Surfriders Club. Hawaii needs Surf Clubs too!


Mick Fanning will join the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Kirra Surfriders Club (KSC), on the 28th January, in the Cultural Centre of the Kirra Hill, in Australia. Mick and his brothers Ed and Sean joined Kirra, in the early 90's, when the Fanning family moved to Coolangatta, from Ballina.

Clubs like the ones in Australia are a huge reason why there are more 'Aussies' in the top ranks than any other nation. If Hawaii wants to have more competitive domination in the next decade, we must step up and set up the same system.

   

NOAA scores new jet, Pacific forecasting to benefit


Twin-engine Gulfstream flyovers will help North American weather forecasting

SNN Surf News, 17 January, 2012 : - - A highly specialized NOAA jet typically used to study hurricanes will fly over the north Pacific Ocean during the next two months gathering data that will enhance winter storm forecasts for the entire North American continent. From its temporary base at U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point in Honolulu, NOAA’s high-altitude, twin-engine Gulfstream IV-SP aircraft will deploy special sensors to collect information where the jet stream and moisture from the ocean interact and breed potentially powerful winter storms that impact North America several days later.

   

Talking Story With CJ Hobgood

The action sports world is full of passionate athletes who occasionally act irrationally, immaturely, or irresponsibly. There are alter egos and inner demons, disorders and destruction. And they are sometimes accepted because they share a body with superhuman talent and courage.

But among the pinnacle of our sports there exists a few individuals who maintain composure and professionalism even when it is challenged. Let's face it, Kelly Slater is not only a freak on a surfboard, but he has an awareness of the world around him like the president (and a much better approval rating.)

“The desire to initiate this kind of policy has existed within ASP for several years now and with the approval of resource and budget allocation at the November 2011 Board Meeting, we are pleased to announce its activation. We believe this to be an important further step in enhancing professional surfing.”

Waterman Shane Dorian gives us the insight of daily life as a family man and one of the worlds leading big wave chargers.Look back...in less than a decade Mr Dorian has had several of the most memorable moments in surf charging history.
From the ground breaking barrells deep in the bowels of Teahupoo Tow surfing, to paddling into the largest wave ever at Peahi (which was after his near death on a huge Mavericks beast). But that was after the biggest paddling ever at Waimea with Mark Healey on Dec 7,2009!
Lets not forget also why he's called Back Dorian and how he did on the world tour on small high performance surfing from 1993-2004.

   

Twelve for Slater in 2012 worth shouting about


Corky's Blog

For Slater, ‘12 in 2012' worth shouting about

Surf News, 14 January, 2012 :  A constantly asked question in the surfing world these days is "will Kelly Slater go for World Championship number 12 in '12?" This remains to be determined as I understand it.

From what I have heard through the grapefruit vine is that Kelly will compete in the opening event of the new year in the Quiksilver Pro to be held on Australia's Gold Coast from Feb 25 and March 7. The feeling is that it's a "let's see what happens and then go from there" kinda situation.

An interesting side note to this is that the great one will turn 40 years old next month. too. The dude is breaking all kinds of new ground. My personal feeling is that I would like to see him go for one more. I mean, why not? How cool to be so talented that you can stay at the top into your 40s and be able to just be out there on the tour.

   

Great White Shark in Hawaiian Waters, Kaena Point, Dom & Addison 2 Fishermen, January 12, 2012


By Tim Sakahara

Not to Alarm you but only to Alert you. (also, some language) WAIANAE (HawaiiNewsNow) - For a fisherman it's a great story. Addison Toki got away with his catch and without getting bit by the shark. Plus, he got pictures of a magnificent animal which is a true catch indeed.
It was a close encounter with what Toki says was a 15 foot great white shark. Toki was fishing with boat captain Dominick Gaballo about 5 miles off Yokohama Bay near Kaena Point. He had just pulled a 300 pound marlin into his boat when seconds later he saw the fin.

   

Reef McIntosh wins the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout 2012


Reef McIntosh has conquered the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout 2012, held in splendid surfing conditions, in Pipeline, Hawaii. Intense heats were surfed in the famous big wave arena, in eight-foot glassy sets. It was an hard fought victory for the Pipe connoisseur. Bruce Irons, Jamie O'Brien and Marcus Hickman were right behind McIntosh until the last surfed wave.

"I just stopped watching because I thought Jamie, and then John, passed me," McIntosh laughed. "I don't want to ever experience that pressure again."
