Catching up with Reef McIntosh


With summer ending, it won't be long until those first NPAC swells start filtering down to Hawaii. What better time to check out one of the North Shore's hardest charging surfers, Reef McIntosh.

Some job titles are very specific. An employer expects one thing of you. For Reef McIntosh, that job is to go ride Pipeline ...Well, that and manage the Quiksilver house directly in front of Pipeline.


The history of the famous surfing shaka sign

The Shaka sign is the famous surfers' hand gesture. The story of the popular sign goes back to the roots of Hawaiian culture.

When the surf culture grew and spread through California and America, during the sunny 1960's, a new body gesture was gaining enthusiasts. Surfers from Hawaii started saluting fellow riders and friends with an original hand sign.


Actually, no joke...this Saturday it's everyones day to help all around the globe. Mahalo for taking part...

The event is getting bigger and bigger and we are truly excited. If all goes to plan, Kailua will be left cleaner than it’s been in years as a result of the community coming out and showing their love for the beach. The event afterwards is gonna be rad. We’ve got multiple bands, DJ LEON, games, food, keiki tent and now a live yoga session to pop in on for free. Please carpool, walk, bike, skate, or shimmy. Let’s try not to have too many cars in Lanikai as parking is tight and traffic can get ugly. If you have any questions please email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

International Coastal Cleanup Day is a worldwide effort to reduce marine debris on coastlines while also educating participants about conservation, reduction of single use plastics, and more. Big Thanks to the Ocean Conservancy for promoting this event.


Its ON as of 630am HI time. The 2012 Hurley Pro Sunday Sept. 16 at Lowers in a head high SSW.

2012 is an important year for the Hurley Pro. Not just because Kelly Slater — the most dominant surfer of all time at Trestles — is chasing his 50th win. Not just because we’re at a turning point in a tight title race or the fact that we have great things in store on site and online. No. The truth is the 2012 Hurley Pro is important because we get to witness a revolution in the making.  GO LIVE HERE


The best tube riders of all time or at least 50 of them...

The most experienced tube riders in the world have enjoyed long, difficult, hollow, deep and perfect barrels. Who are they and how complicated is to get pitted?

Getting barreled in a wave is the ultimate dream of every surfer. If tube riding could be taught in the university, it would be the hardest exam. In this case, if you fail it's wipeout time over the falls.

Surfing the tube is a sensorial experience. Tube riders contemplate the cave with their eyes, hear the spray and power of wave with their ears, touch the wave face with their hand and even smell the salted flavour of ocean water when you're spitted.

The tube ride demands practice and quality waves, too. Usually, you're not allowed to get cover for a long time. The circular curtain of salted water is fast and demands timing and momentum.

Who wants to see big, perfect Fiji again? You do!

Surf News : This footage is mesmerizing. Thanks to Nick Pollet for putting this awesome edit together. It’s hard to fathom how truly massive and perfect these waves are, particularly the wave at the 2:44 mark. Even if somebody was in position, I don’t know they would have wanted anything to do with that wave or if they did if they could even catch it. There is no doubt that this is the swell and conditions that will live on in history one of the greatest if not the greatest session of all time.

We posted blog titled the “Best Wave Never Ridden” back in June, but I’ve change my mind. The wave at 2:44 is hands down the biggest, best and most perfect wave never ridden.
