It's a one of a kind event at a one of a kind venue: Point Panic off Kewalo basin!

Based on the SNN forecasted conditions for this Saturday and Sunday (4' solid Saturday from the SSW with 14 seconds), the Meet Committee has decided to go to RED ALERT for this weekend. This means that the events are ON STANDY for this week...end. We will make a final call by Wednesday afternoon, but conditions look very promising. If we run, we will begin beach entries around 6:30 and will have the first heat in the water by 8:00 at the very latest. Please help pass the word, and we hope to see you there...Aloha, REDWINGS Memorial Events Committee

RipCurl GromSearch finishes up at Kewalo's

After the second stop of the 2014 Rip Curl GromSearch, at Kewalo Basin on Oahu, the line is busy with talk of young Hawaiian champions. Talk of how the best from Kewalos will go on to the National Final at Trestles, and possibly the International Final at an undisclosed, world-class wave later this year. Talk of how from there, they’re likely to go on to world-class careers. If one thing is worthy of so much talk, it’s the future. No need to dial, these kids beat you to it. 


Mick Fanning wins it in EPIC 5-8' Jeffries.

Date: Saturday, July 19, 2014
Schedule: Round 5 (Heats 1-4), Quarterfinals, Semifinals
Conditions: Double overhead surf at Supertubes
Joel Parkinson (AUS) exploded out of the gates, catching a brilliant wave on the buzzer. On his way to a big score, though, he couldn’t exit a tight barrel on the inside. Fanning on the very next wave found a double barrel and sweetened the ride with powerful carves, to post an excellent 9.00 and take an early lead...FOR THE VIDEOS and Photos and Full Scoops hit up ASP HERE


Johnny Stone says "NO" to Monsanto

Today at 5pm Hawaii Standard Time, noRep Boardshorts will release Protest Shorts: Evict Monsanto.

These limited edition shorts – only 300 pair made – were designed by North Short-based artist Drew Toonz to bring awareness to the Evict Monsanto movement.

Monsanto, the multinational chemical corporation famous for producing Agent Orange and RoundUp is also a leading manufacturer of genetically modified seeds, foods and pesticides. Whether you know them as GMOs, genetically engineered crops, or biotechnology, they all depict the act of inputting new genes into an organism in order to produce an acquired trait.
