Mark Healey, team rider for Quiksilver Wetsuits, talks about the monstrous barrel that is “Going Left” at Mavericks. It’s rare you see people go left at this big wave spot. Listen to what he has to say about it, right after taking a beating, and you’ll know why.
Albee Layer pulls the first documented alley oop 720 on a surfboard. I say ‘”documented” because who knows if someone has already done it and not captured it on film. Without film it’s fiction right? This video is part of The Isle series starring Matt Meola and Albee Layer.
Setting sail with a small crew from Ushuaia, Argentina on January 4th, Kepa Acero aims to be the first European to surf on the continent of Antarctica. He’ll be bringing his Patagonia R4 Wetsuit no doubt! Check out the video, and stay tuned for news of his return.
We’ve always been very pleased to carry OluKai Sandals in our stores. They make a durable, comfortable product that always leaves our customers satisfied. We also greatly respect and love their commitment to giving back. This holiday season Olukai has partnered up with Project Save Our Surf and the New York Surfrider Chapter to help with the Hurricane Sandy relief. They donated $85,000 worth of shoes to victims and also helped with financial support.
“Everyone at OluKai has been deeply moved by the aftermath of Sandy,” said Cara Hockersmith, OluKai Project Lead for Sandy Relief Efforts. “We are grateful to be able to take local action with our partners Project Save Our Surf and New York Surfrider.”
OluKai’s giveback philosophy is a deep part of the brand’s DNA and marked by a continual commitment to partnering with organizations actively pursuing Mauka- and Makai-initiatives (protecting the land and ocean). Additionally, OluKai has built a legacy of support with meaningful events such as their annual Giveback Day, during which the company closes its doors and joins a local cause – such as Project Save Our Surf and Inside The Outdoors for wetlands and ocean conservation and StandUp for Kids to raise awareness and supplies for homeless and street kids in Orange County, CA.”
Support a wonderful company with a great mission this holiday season by giving a quality pair of footwear from Olukai.
