Mexican waves, longboards and beautiful women

I know this is supposed to be an ad for woman's surf apparel for Seea, but man, I want to go and surf with them. Plus, look at their swank gear. I know what I'm getting my girlfriend for christmas.

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.

Big Monday, Surfing Nazare Portugal

I know some people think surfing Nazare's wave isn't as presegious as surfing Jaws or  Mavricks. But there is something to be said when you are flying down a fat mount of water 60 to a 100 feet in height. Sure it's not a wall, but thank goodness, I don't think big wave surfers could ever have gotten on it.

Big Monday is a short film about that fateful day in  October 28th 2013  and the surfers who were out there. From the near  drowning of Maya Gabeira  and possibly the largest wave surfed on record. It was a pretty thrilling and heroic day for surfing. Check out the video below.
