Ten Things Surfing Gave The Internet This Week

Hello hello. Welcome to yet another instalment of This Week In Surfing brought to you far too late. Unfortunately last week I had gone deep sea fishing and missed the window to publish this most excellent column(bad joke!) but we're back now and all is well. Anyway… TEN THINGS!!!!!!

This is what a surfing contest in Fiji looks like. Michel Bourez having the best time ever.

This is what a surfing contest in Fiji looks like. Michel Bourez having the best time ever.

1. The Volcom Fiji Pro

The Volcom Fiji Pro is on and it is awesome. Surfers are playing tennis and fishing and missing heats and just having the best time ever, and when they're in their heats they are again having the best time ever. You see Restaurants this week? Yes? Wanna see it again? Sure you do. Here it is, John John and a ten!

2. Skating and Surfing and Monsters and Children

Our pal Riley Blakeway (Now, Chromatic) got together with our pals at Monster Children and went surfing and skating in New Zealand and made a most excellent surf/skate film about it. If you didn't know, Greyson Fletcher (one of the stars of the flick) is the son of Christian Fletcher and grandson of Herbie. Dude can skate. Enjoy.

3. Yeah Crewsy!

Mitch Crews is a total bloody legend. He won a bloody 4 star QS event in Japan last weekend and then dropped this bloody ripper of a clip. Onya Crewsy!

Speaking of Crewsy, how good is this show he's starring in. Surf House? It's basically a surf styled remake of early 90s MTV series, Real World (This is the true story of 6 people forced to live together, to see what happens whem people stop being polite, and start getting real). Remember that? It even has the same font for the names in the title sequence. I could watch surfing all day, I could watch bad reality television all day. Match made in heaven? Damn straight!

4. Jordy Talks, We Listen

Jordy Smith is surfing as well as ever and seems completely stoked on life. He won the Billabong Pro in Rio and no-one was upset about that. So let's Listen to him talk about the event. Hooray Jordy Smith.

5. Wave Garden

Hey, let's all talk about wave-pools again. From the Basque country comes another Wave Garden creation. Can't wait to surf this after a hard day of riding my hoverboard and flying around on my jet-pack.

6. Bruce Irons Takes Oakley Pro Bali Wildcard

Oakley have announced that their wildcard for the event at Keramas will be Bruce Irons. How great is it gonna be to see this guy in a competition rashie (other than Pipe) for the first time in… forever?

7. Garret Parkes Is Flash Gordon?

Surfing World magazine recently released one of those great issues where they get a house on the coast somewhere and let surfers and photogrpahers and misfits and pranksters drop in, have a beer, go surfing. Awesome. Story is that Garret Parkes dropped by the house looking exactly like Flash Gordon. That's even more awesome.

8. Marti P

Marti Paradisis is well known as one of the best big wave surfers in the world. But how good is he in, well not small waves, but non-crazy-stupid-death-slab waves? Pretty freakin' good.

P.S.

THis is more than a week old. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone.

9. Kerrsy In Rio

Josh Kerr= Legend. Here he is in Rio doing the surfing.

10. Rip Curl Team Surfs Good* 

How good does the Rip Curl team surf in this clip? Except that you can't actually surf good. It's not possible. The same as you can't do good (unless you are Superman, or a nurse, or a charity worker). Yeah, that doesn't make sense... Anyway, how good does the Rip Curl team surf in this clip? Goodest team ever!

And that was this week in surfing. Have a long weekend. CW out.
