Special engagement: Gerry Lopez and Kai Lenny at Surfer, the Bar's Talk Story Session Wednesday evening!

Gerry Lopez
There are few images as iconic as Gerry calmly slotted on a perfect, eight-foot day at Pipeline. After redefining the art of tube riding on the North Shore of O’ahu, his focus turned to Indonesia, where he pioneered legendary spots like Uluwatu and G-Land. Now based in Oregon, he surfs, writes, shapes, and shreds powder days near his home in Bend.
Kai Lenny
In the Hawaiian language Kai means ocean, and Kai Lenny certainly lives up to his name. Born on Maui to parents who loved to surf and windsurf, Kai has grown up at the beach. Kai loves competition; currently his main competitive sport is SUP and even at his early age, he already holds the title of 3 World Championships....

GMac surfs Mercedes surfboard at Nazare, hits top speed!


This past weekend Garrett McNamara was clocked going 62.4 kilometres per hour on a wave at Nazaré. He did it on a specially constructed and weighted board provided by Mercedes Benz. The reason GMac tapped the German auto maker was because his current crop of tow-in boards couldn't outrun the speeds at which those giant most-likely-not-meant-to-be-ridden-by-humans waves travel.
