Have you ever had the pressure of your fourth world title riding on your back as the world closely watches your every move? Probably not – but you can only imagine that it’s tremendously nerve-wrecking. And although Mick Fanning is known as the man with ice running through his veins, even he needs a little time to escape. Watch the above of the Mr. Michael Eugene finding solace away from the contest in Portugal at a dreamy little right-hand Portuguese elbow.Reblogged 8 years ago from www.surfingmagazine.com
Sometimes, style hinders progressive surfing. People care too much about how their arms look, or how their knees look, or how their hair flaps, and as a result, they won’t try anything all that impressive — but that’s not the case with Yago Dora. Yago seamlessly blends a style with emulating into high performance surfing worth applauding. The result? Renegade beauty. See proof in this edit he just dropped from Indo. Highlights include the turns at 2:20, the straight air combo at 3:23 and that style always.Reblogged 8 years ago from www.surfingmagazine.com

This past weekend, the nations very best under sixteen talent made their way down to the cobblestone shores of Upper Trestles for the 2015 Rip Curl Gromsearch National Finals.
How good did they get it?
The answer is very good – giving what the pros got in round two and three in Peniche a run for it’s money, and quite possibly winning. Rip Curl rolled out the red carpet for those who qualified via the four regional GS events; webcast, live scoring, catering by Banzai Bowls and Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, and even priority in their four man (and woman) heats. Competitors tee’d off on that classic Trestles coping for the entirety of the day as the talented field of groms battled for a spot (preferably the top one) on the podium.
What did the search for the nation’s best groms yield?
Summer Macedo backed up her ISA World Jr win with a performance reminiscent of a young Carissa Moore, claiming the Girls Under 16 title. Nolan Rapoza did the right foot forward populace proud, throwing down huge scores with rhythmic ripping to earn the Boys Under 16 win. Both Eithan Osborne and young Eli Hanneman went on to win the Boys Under 14 and Under 12 divisions with dominating performances all day long.
Both the Boys and Girls Under 16 winners not only took home a pretty $500 bucks, but they also won themselves a paid way to the Rip Curl Gromsearch International Finals at an undisclosed location as part of The Search.Reblogged 8 years ago from www.surfingmagazine.com
