Big Scores and Pumping Waves on Day Two of Reef Pro El Salvador

The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 6-Star Reef Pro El Salvador ran a marathon day of competition, with top seeds posting the event’s high scores in firing six-to-eight foot (2 metre) waves at the Central American gem of Punta Roca.

The Reef Pro El Salvador represents one of only three ASP 6-Star events on the 2013 Men’s calendar, playing a vital role in surfer’s qualification campaigns for next season’s ASP WCT as well as a spot in the coveted ASP Prime rated events.

Brazilian powerhouse Willian Cardoso, 27, reveled in the long walls of Punta Roca, unloading the day’s high single-wave score of 9.80 out of 10 with a strong display of flawless forehand railwork to take a commanding Round 2 victory.

Surf Legend Kelly Slater Attacks GMOs and Biotech Giants in Hawaii

Surf legend Kelly Slater has come out with a stunning attack on GMOs and their biotech giant developers’ seed patents. In his Hawaii video, produced by the Hawai’i GMO Justice Coalition, he also criticizes the islands for allowing GM crop trials on a large scale.

Kelly Slater states in the video that “if your father dies of cancer like mine did or if you have friends who are affected by having kids with autism you start to have a lot of questions, like where are these coming from? It seems like every day we are either learning about a new disease or a higher rate of disease in children.”

   

The young Hawaiian's shine at the 2013 NSSA Final Day

 

While having exercise bikes in the competitor’s area was a very earnest idea, it didn’t quite pan out as you would have supposed. I arrived at the scene just in time to watch two young men buck up and down on the bikes like inebriated sorority sisters on mechanical bulls somewhere south of Arlington, Texas. A crowd of peers watched closely, chanting and screaming. It appeared to be a competition, but I couldn’t decipher who was winning. As I stood pondering, a coed stampede of younger surfers scorched past me as they raced to the candy stand. Competitive by nature but frisky at heart, aren’t they?

JUST AS FAST AS IT BREAKS YOU DOWN IT BUILDS YOU BACK UP. BUILDS YOU BACK INTO A BETTER, SMARTER, HEIGHTENED, ENLIGHTENED, STRONGER, HAPPIER VERSION OF THE “YOU” BEFORE THE EXPERIENCE….

   

Gary Busey, the American film and stage actor, has revealed his passion for surfing in a sui generis way.


Is he the new surfing Messiah? (Not for me but he's got good stuff to say).

He starred in the surf movie "Big Wednesday" as Leroy 'The Masochist' Smith. The film reached an iconic status. He was FBI Agent Angelo Pappas, in "Point Break". The film reached a classic status.

We never know when Gary Busey is talking seriously or when he's making fun of us all. This time, two videos captured by Joshua Pomer promise to get the viral stamp, as Busey reveals what surfing has done for his life.

"The surfing experience I had changed my life in many ways. No matter what I've been through. The addictions I had - womanizing, stupidity, cocaine... But I got good news. I've found it. One of the ways was surfing", says Gary Busey....
