Surfing the East Side with Zeke Lau

Ezekiel Lau (better known as Zeke) is coming of age as a surfer and competitor right in front of our eyes with some impressive and creative surfing. Zeke is known for having a unique blend of style, speed, and power. Ezekiel sets himself apart as a private school student at Kamehameha Schools (an Institution for students of Hawaiian Ancestry) while pursuing a competitive surfing career in which he claimed 4 National Titles. Surfing is his passion and he hopes you will develop a passion for watching him as he comes up in rank as the next generation of surfing’s’ finest.


Land Ahoy in Pupukea with Alex & Koa Smith

For the handful of professional surfers fortunate enough to score a room in a plush team house, a winter on the North Shore is paired with private chefs, beachfront bedrooms overlooking some of the most sought-after real estate in the country, and rumored team masseuses. But this is a far cry from reality for most surfers on the North Shore. For the unsung masses, the surfers trying to make a name for themselves or those with sponsors unable to own or rent a home for the season, finding a place to lay their head is a battle in and of itself. For Kauai’s Alex Smith, who doesn’t have a main sponsor, an open mind and a little creativity found him with some of the most interesting digs of the season. Alex spent his winter on a boat, a dry-docked vessel in the mountains.

Cast your vote for the Greatest Athlete of All Time


Action sports don't take place on neatly manicured lawns or AstroTurf. Instead, they happen on vert ramps and snow-topped mountains, behind the wheel and on the crest of a wave, at high miles per hour and even higher altitudes, producing enough broken bones and concussions to make an NFL player blush. Which action sports star demonstrates the greatest combination of athletic talent?
