News Headlines – Fri 22nd

It seems localism isn\’t a myth in the UK after all, as Steve Thorp has discovered somewhere on the NE coast. He scored an all-time session at a \’secret spot\’ – mast-high, long, grinding down-the-line waves. But the parting message on his van window from one of the local surfers is enough to ensure he won\’t be saying much more about it. Fresh from Tiree glory, Ben Proffitt only missed out on a potential beating having overslept, but they hooked up for a far friendlier 4-hour session at Redcar later, as per these pix. More from Steve here and Ben here

Across the North Sea, Dutch PWA ripper Martin ten Hoeve has announced the arrival of autumn following a nice looking session in Texel, Holland.

Today\’s movie is yet another from Dahab – this time it\’s Flying Fish graduate, K-119 Steve Hackey. Much more about Steve-O here

World Cup Fanatic / North riders Victor Fernandez, Gollito Estredo, Cyril Moussillmani, Marcilio Browne, Laure Treboux, and Yoli de Brendt plus others like Taty Frans, Kiri Thode, Tonky Frans, Nicolas Akgazciyan, Quincy Offringa and Antxon Otaegui gradually painted a 120 x 100cm artwork on the Fanatic / North stand at PWA Sylt for charity in aid of Pakistan. Bid for it now on eBay.

Talking of Fanatic, if you\’ve been into one of their dealers recently you might have noticed a face or two missing – that\’s because \’everyone\’ seems to have gone to Mauritius for the Fanatic dealer conference. And it looks like they\’ll have had a pretty good time judging by the report on Klaas Voget\’s blog.

And finally, after recent SUP trickery it\’s time to get back to some \’proper\’ waveriding stunts – like this amazing double air taka from Marcilio Browne. We guess he\’s calling it an \’attempt\’ as he didn\’t land it back on the wave-face, but he\’s sure shown it\’s possible…
