Zeke Lau snags 2nd place in the Oakley World Junior Championships, and misses 1st by .07 points

Tuesday October 16, 2012. Oakley ASP World Junior Championships


Hawaii's Ezekiel Lau placed 2nd in the Oakley World Pro Junior Championships at Keramas in Bali today. The powerful Sunset Beach surfer was a standout all event but went down in the final to Australian Jack Freestone. The final scores were Freestone - 13.83 to Lau's - 13.77, missing 1st place by a mere .07 points!!  A tough loss?  Or an outstanding run that highlights Zeke's talent and emerging dominance?  Zeke no doubt put on a stellar performance, and ended up with a sensational result.  All good things happening for the 18 year old Hawaiian who has two more years in this Pro Junior division but may well chase the ASP World Qualifying open Series given his great form and potential.

Rip Curl Pro Portugal Completes Two Heats of Round 3...

Surf News, 15 October... The Rip Curl Pro Portugal, Event No. 8 of 10 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, completed the opening two heats of Round 3 today before calling competition off due to slowing conditions.

John John Florence (HAW), 19, ASP WCT No. 4, was victorious in the opening heat of the day, surviving a slow affair with Travis Logie (ZAF), 33. The talented Hawaiian, who suffered minor injuries two days ago while chasing a perfect hollow wave down the coast from Peniche, continued his impressive form at the Rip Curl Pro Portugal....


Surf Better Now - How to do an aerial in surfing

Aerial surfing has been gaining momentum in modern waves. Even in contests these days we see guys boosting and getting huge scores.  Judges have started to recognize these maneuvers as part of a more porgressive surf style.  In Portugal we have already seen some killer airs.  So how does a surfer pull an aerial?

Taking a surfboard into the air, well above the lip, requires technique, experimentation and a good wave ramp. Frontside punts are accessible to the average surfer.

Old school surfers were not designed for aerial surfing, so they had to learn with the young surf generation. Today, surf magazines love aerials in their covers.
