COOLANGATTA, Queensland/Australia (Monday, 6 February, 2012) – 2011 ASP World Champion Taylor Jensen (USA) showed why he is the best in the business with a near perfect performance in the final of the ASP Open Men’s Division of the Hyundai Tour event at Sandy Bay, Whangarei, New Zealand.
Jensen’s opening ride was a near flawless 9.0 (out of a possible 10) and the smooth natural footer linked a long hang ten nose ride with a number of fin-waft re-entries to take the lead in the heat held in 1 – 1.5 meter waves.

Just over half a century ago...Philip Edwards became the first surfer to ride real Banzai Pipeline, in Hawaii, back in 1961. Phil, also known as "The Guayule Kid", was born on the 10th June 1938, in Long Beach, California.
Before completing 10 year of age, Phil Edwards was already feeling the attractionof water, ocean and waves. In those days, California was the Mecca of international surfing. The US West Coast had everything for everyone. Waves of all types, a vivid surf culture and an emerging surf industry.
In Dana Point, California, surfers tried to impress spectators with serious wave riding stunts at the famous surf break of Killer Dana, a spot for experienced watermen. Killer Dana was "the" surf spot where you might became the most influential surfer of all time, in a matter of day.
We had some fun days in January on here on Oahu, Hawaii. Feels like when waves were big, we had contests... so mostly fun size waves on this free surf sessions webisode.
Enjoy the video!
Novus Swell was started to highlight Hawaii grom surfers.
It was originally started as an online magazine but we found out kids don't read the articles but just watching the videos... so we've decided to do videos episodes (webisodes) every Tuesday.
Enjoy and let us know how we can improve!

Is this a preview of the 2012 end of the world? The supposed apocalypse is less than 12 months away. This video, presenting 'the end' through the eyes of surfers, has gone viral.
'Apocalypse Later, Surf Now,' is making the rounds on the web. 'If the world came to an end, where would you be? Better be #SURFING!' tweeted one surfer, 'Stunning take on how the world will end,' commented another.
With an eerie soundtrack, the video was shot with a GoPro camera. The creator, 'keef70' had the original video and then sprinkled it with visuals of the apocalypse via Maya, Mocha and After Effects.
