Meet Seabass

Despite the events of the past couple months, Sebastian “Seabass” Zietz is still the same outgoing, three-thumbed, dance-machine from Kauai that the surf community knows and loves – he’s just added a few new facts to his Wikipedia page: Triple Crown champion and a member of the ASP World Tour. One was the springboard unto the other.

Good swell forecast for Quiksilver, Roxy Pros...

Action-packed weekend likely for Quiksilver & Roxy Pros

Surf News, 27 February, 2013 The Quiksilver and Roxy Pro’s presented by Land Rover are likely to commence this weekend with a promising swell set to arrive on cue for the opening 2013 events of the ASP Men’s and Women’s World Championship Tours. Contest Director Jake Paterson (Aus) is anticipating an action packed weekend as the world’s best surfers commence their 2013 campaigns in the high performance waves on the southern end of Australia’s Gold Coast. “We have a great week of swell coming. It’s just a bit unfortunate at the moment that we have a big hole out the back of Snapper Rocks but fortunately for us, we have a great bank down at Rainbow Bay, so it looks like we are going to get away pretty early,” said Paterson.

Paradise is a shorebreak...check Stab Mags interview with Clark Little

While the true world thunders by, Clark Little is happy documenting the moment when waves extinguish. Have you seen the way that sand scoops up through the turquoise face of a shorebreak? Or, the way the sun dances on the wall just before detonation? Scary and pretty, all at once! It’s kinda captivating. That’s Clark’s zone. He’s been capturing condensed slices of violence and beauty in shorebreaks since 2005. Some mainstream recognition (National Geographic, thanks) and a successful gallery and website have since become his full-time game. Ain’t that something special? When Stab called to discuss such things, Clark was “Chewing on some beef jerky, editing some pictures, and just living the life, y’know?” STAB MAG HERE

A Moment with Kelly Slater

For over 20 years, 11-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater's performance and innovation have dominated the discussion in surfing, just as he has won heats, media exposure and worldwide popularity. His first signature video, "Kelly Slater in Black and White" revolutionized traditional on-the-face surfing by introducing a loose, tailfree, above-the-lip approach mixed with elastic tube riding.

Taylor Steele, who started filming Slater for his seminal "Momentum" series videos in the early '90s and still works with him today, remembers a particularly remarkable Slater session he filmed in Barbados for his "Sipping Jetstreams" film.
