Carlsbad, California's Taylor Knox has retired from World Tour competition after 22 years of circling the globe. At 41, Knox retires as the oldest surfer on tour, and, not surprisingly, one of the most respected.

Taylor on one of the most epic rides in Todos Santos history back in 1998.

His round 1 loss to local wildcard Billy Kemper at the ongoing Billabong Pipe Masters back in December cued his final exit, as close friends Mick Fanning, Kelly Slater, and Rob Machado chaired him up the beach following the loss.

Dane & Taj in California


This short clip first showed up on Dane Reynold's website, Summerteeth.

Dane had warned Taj that the waves were not going to be great but Taj ignored the warnings and went anyway. 

Like all of Dane's clips it was locked to his website but lucky for us Taj just uploaded it to his own Vimeo. 

Thanks Taj and Happy New Years everyone.  



Scientists have warned that society as we know it, may be greatly disrupted by an intense solar flare predicted for 2013. A solar flare is a sudden eruption of intense high-energy radiation from the sun’s surface caused by a huge explosion on the surface of the sun.

A Solar Flare could hit the Earth like a lightening bolt and knock out all electrical and navigational equipment in key parts of the World or even a complete shutdown across the globe.

SURF TIPS - How to boost an air

Nobody knows who did the first air, but sometime, presumably in the late ‘70s, a surfer of immense skill and creative insight decided to launch his board out of the water, over the lip of the wave and back down towards the face before continuing his ride. It was the latest innovation in a sport bursting at the seams with progressive new ideas, along with surfers talented enough to pull them off.

The best 10-point rides ever

Ten point rides are rare and when they happen the crowd out in the beach goes crazy. A perfect 10 is the ultimate surfing goal in competition.

Surfers know than only a well selected wave and complete maneuvers will get the maximum score. Not all waves can deliver ten points in pro surfing.


Greg Long survives Cortes Big-wave surfer escapes serious injury at massive wave session

Pro surfer Greg Long is home recovering after suffering a serious wipeout on Friday at Cortes Bank, an open-ocean break approximately 100 miles west of San Diego, Calif., during one of the heaviest big-wave sessions of the year.

30 Years of Triple Crown of Surfing

Sebastian Ziets won the 2012 Triple Crown of Surfing title.  "Seabass" won the Reef Hawaiian Pro, finished third in the Vans World Cup of Surfing and progressed through to Round 3 at the Billabong Pipe Masters to claim the Triple Crown of Surfing 2012 title.

"Seabass", from Kauai, started surfing at 6 years old. No ID, passport or birth certificate meant he couldn't travel for a long time. Ziets trained with Andy and Bruce Irons, Roy Powers and Dustin Barca to build a solid career. He turned pro at 16 and always saw Pipeline as a scary wave. 2012 confirmed his status of surf star.
