SUP World Tour Day 1 Recap form Turtle Bay

Day 1 Highlights Include Womens, Youth, and Legends Event

Stormy conditions have been covering the North Shore for most of the previous week.  This morning saw the conditions improving as the wind began to settle down and the waves cleaned up to provide consistent 5-7 foot faces at the "Pool Bars" break at Turtle Bay Resort.  

It was a fun day of competition and exhibition today as we saw the first two women's heats, competition between under-16 youth and a special exhibition from some living surfing legends.  Na Kama Kai also held a youth clinic to teach the next generation the necessary skills to excel in the ocean.


Snowboarders are a surfers favorite cousin


It was a moment both humbling and historic for 20-year-old Sage Kotsenburg Saturday afternoon. In the first-ever medal event of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, he earned the first gold not just from Sochi, but the first ever in snowboard slopestyle’s Olympic debut. And he did it his way, with inventive runs that made an impression on the judges—like hisHoly Crail, a trick that he invented this past fall in hopes of becoming a contender.

An interview with the champ - Kelly Slater


“Go on the results of your actions. When everything’s all laid out, and it’s all done, what effect did you have on something? Positive or negative? How did you help it or hurt it? So I like to think of that. Go on results, with anything.” – Kelly Slater

Lets compare 2 of the biggest waves ever ridden without making.

Let's take a look at a British surfer may have set a world record for riding a wave that dwarfs those we saw at the Mavericks Invitational suft contest this year.

Andrew Cotton rode a wave off the coast of Portugal that was believed to be 98-feet tall in the face or crest to trough (SNN: but tell me...where IS the trough?).

Residing in Croyde, South West, United Kingdom, big wave surfer Andrew Cotton often ventures across his homeland border to hunt down massive swells. This time, the giant, unruly surf at Nazaré brought ‘Cotty’ to Portugal on February 2, 2014. Media outlets around the world are buzzing with estimates of how large the wave actually was, possibly 78-80 ft, and questioning its possible ‘world record breaking’ status. (SNN: 'who' came up with 78-80?).
