Volcom Pipe Pro Day 2 is ON! + Exciting day 1 recaps

Today marked day five of the 2013 Volcom Pipe Pro waiting period and after four straight "lei days," mother nature finally cooperated allowing the contest to be called on in temperamental yet fun conditions with waves ranging from head high to more than double-overhead.  There was no shortage of excitement throughout the day's event which started out with the local trials, then the round of 112, into the thrilling VLCQ heat, and finished off halfway through the round of 96.  The day's competition saw epic tube rides, nasty wipeouts and some high scores, including Kawai Lindo's perfect 10 in the VLCQ.

Pipeline goes off its head

Why did contest officials decide to not run the 2013 Volcom Pipe Pro yesterday? Because Pipe was kicking ass and taking names! I spoke with Volcom Pipe Pro surfer representative Flynn Novak this morning and he told me a harrowing tale of him getting knocked out while underwater and barely coming to.


Yes, its real. Biggest wave ever by a large margin. Near 100 feet.

Congrads Garrett McNamara...he did it. Officials will have their work cut out figuring out where the trough is. But in my rough estimate, at the moment of peak cresting, this wave is about 100' high. The biggest ever ridden by significant margin. What an honor it must be for Garrett. Interviews and glories galore are on the way. And to top it off Garrett did not get a rush out of it! On his Anderson Cooper interview Tuesday night Garrett said with a smile and chuckle " I havent been able to get the rush ever since that glacier wave in rush, so its probably not 100'. Anderson was incredulous: " You did NOT get a rush riding that wave...are you kidding me? Garrett: " I am not kidding you Anderson, I dont know what is wrong with me...there's definitely something wrong"


Tonight. One of a kind Alex Gray at Surfer, the Bar Thursday evening.

He was one of the few guys to make it out of a bomb on the Tahiti’s infamous Code Red day. He was there when everyone started paddling Jaws. He scored all-time Fiji with his friend/mentor/cover-star Dave Wassell during the Volcom comp. He’s got starring roles beside Kelly Slater in this year’s two Taylor Steele films (Here & Now and This Time Tomorrow). And just last week he blew off his US Open poster signing to score this bombing Puerto swell. Remember when Alex Gray was, like, this cute, comedy kid doing the WQS? Me neither. —Nathan Myers (Surfing Mag)


Here is a Winter X Games video recap of the week

Torstein Horgmo takes Winter X gold in historic snowboard big air

Down to his final jump to make something happen, Torstein Horgmo of Norway saved the best for last, pulling off a switch backside triple cork 1440--a trick he only tried last week--and winning the gold medal in snowboard big air at X Games Aspen on Friday night.


Is that guy SKI-ING at Pe'ahi?!?!?


Chuck Patterson is quite the Renaissance man when it comes to outdoor adventure. Whether he's chasing sharksswells, or snow, he's usually turning heads at each stop. The 6'2" 220-pound waterman is best known these days as a racing champion in the fledgling sport of standup paddling, but come winter he always reverts back to his skiing roots, even if he happens to be riding 50-foot waves in Hawaii.

The Event: Fifty kids 17-and under can enter for free with 2.25 GPA on their latest report card and 3 cans of food to donate to the local food bank. The waves were so big we had to move it for the first time ever—our back up spot was Lymans, a left point that was maxing with sets 10ft on the face. Pros that came to hang with the groms and support the event: Ezekiel Lau, Torrey Meister, Matt Meola, Kelly Slater, Keanu Asing, and CJ Kanuha
