Dale Staples // Skeleton Bay // 4:40

Surfers will never grow bored witnessing perfect tube rides, and for that reason, footage of Skeleton Bay will forever entertain us. So will South Africa’s Dale Staples, and for that matter, so will GoPros.

Gabriel Medina and Stepdad Charlie Talk World Title // 5:06

Monday Photos: Winter’s Return

We picked up Oliver at 6 a.m., straight from the club. “Trespassers will be shot” — but it might just be worth it. Griffin Colapinto, more planted than meets the eye. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Beautiful, ain’t it? Except for the thickets of shiny poison oak infesting the trail. Ian Crane, post-burrito crap, [...]
