Pregnant and still surfing

Recently I read an article about Kristi Olivares  from about how she surfed while pregnant. It's a facinating read and I'm impressed that she was able to do it for the full 9 months. I'm pretty sure she's had her baby by this point and I'm curious about how quickly she returned to surfing. The human body is amazing.

Surfing in Old World Portugal

Recently Surfing magazine did a nice feature on surfing Portugal with Griffin Colapinto, Parker Coffin and  native Nic Von Rupp. I'm not sure what Surfing Mag was thinking when they devolped the layout of the webpages, while pretty, it's confusing. To make my life and any one else's a lot easier here are the direct links to each article of the series.

Also here's a nice video to go with it all.

Aerial video of surfing Pipeline during the winter of 2013

Eric Sterman put together some aerial footage of surfing at the North Shore of Oahu, Pipeline. 

There's not much to say.

New Jersey wakes up with another big surf swell

Yup, this was New Jersey this past sunday. I'm not sure exactly where in New Jersey this was taken, but it was pretty epic no matter where you were at the jersey shore. 

Also, this swell seems to have taken it's toll on some surfers. Literally a back breaking swell.
