We lost a good soldier this weekend - R.I.P. Clark Takashima

Story by TheInertia.com

Hawaii’s most beloved surf artist, Clark Takashima, passed away due to a heart attack. I found out late this morning after a morning scope of my Instagram feed led me to Sunny Garcia’s page who dedicated a post to Clark. He was far too young, passionate and bright, and he will be missed by all who knew him and/or his artwork.

This was. One of. The greatest. Wins. In surfing history. A 21-year-old goofy footer, from the beach breaks of Brazil against Joel Parkinson, former World Champion and the undisputed king of Behind the Rock Snapper – one of the most technical, dangerous pieces of right point in the world – at that very place. And he did it, convincingly so, leaving the Australian answerless with still two minutes remaining in the final.

   

Gabriel Medina crowned Quiksilver Pro champ

Gabriel Medina edges out Parko to claim Quik Pro

Surf News, 11 March: A thrilling finals day at Snapper Rocks saw Gabriel Medina (BRA) and Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) crowned Champions of the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by BOQ, stop No. 1 on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour.

Brazilian Gabriel Medina’s historic triumph makes him the first Brazilian and only the second goofy-footer ever to win the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. Medina beat 2013 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast runner-up Joel Parkinson (AUS) in a nail-biting Final and maintained his trend of come-from-behind victories in the final minutes. Medina previously dispatched reigning three-time World Champion, Mick Fanning, in the Quarterfinals and multiple Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast Champion, Taj Burrow, in the Semifinals.

It was Buitendag's first ASP WCT Final appearance, but it was Gilmore's day, with the local lass peaking when it counted with her unique brand of powerful and beautiful surfing helping her post excellent scores all day.

   

Maui Surfer Dege O’Connell recalls the worst wipeout of his life with GrindTV

Right about the same time southern California was getting rocked by the biggest swell of the year, waves of far more consequence were lashing the boulder-strewn shore of Jaws (aka Pe’ahi) on the North Shore of Maui. Charging headfirst into the 25-foot-plus (Hawaiian-style measurement) surf was a dedicated crew of surfers hell-bent on getting the biggest waves of their lives. Among them was 24-year-old Hana resident Dege O’Connell. Dege, who’s been surfing Jaws for several years now, was on a borrowed 10-foot, 6-inch board and caught exactly one wave that session—and it ended up being the worst wipeout of his life. Here, he dishes on what happened....

   

Not so soft but Jamie O'Brien and crew hit Jaws on a soft top

Taking the wrong board into surf of consequence is fun for some...

7 March. For Jamie O'Brien, the “Who is JOB” original series has grown from a curiosity to a full-time obsession.  The show’s mojo comes from Jamie's complete disregard for the camera - a reality series at its finest.  The characters are real and the antics happened naturally long before the cameras ever started rolling. Now in the fourth season of “Who is JOB”, we continue to stick to the proven formula: surfing, travel, girls, stunts and torturing Jamie’s sidekick "Poopies". Catch Vid inside.

   

Gabriel Medina wins the Quik Pro. Stephanie Gilmore wins the Roxy.

Details coming. An epic day of comp. Medina comes from behind in the last minutes TWICE to beat the best at Snapper: Taj in the semis and Joel in the finals. Not to forget beating Mick Fanning in the quarters.
