News Headlines – Friday 27th

Welcome back everyone.

We\’ve got some amazing videos for you this afternoon so we will just jump right in. Levi Siver is arguably one of the most stylish wave-sailors on the planet, and this video does nothing but back up that argument. Sick Air Takas, Goiters and Mutants galore, tuck into this visual treat…

Next up is Lagoon Dreams with some beautifully shot SUP action from Tahiti. We can think of worse places to hang out than French Polynesia, nice.

About as much contrast as you can get to the previous two videos next – a bit of freestyle action from Podersdorf in Austria. Top marks for dedication to Max Brinnich, Chri Reisch and Max Schanda as they drysuit it up and get stuck in. Brrrr. Podersdorf is holding the opening Freestyle event on the PWA calendar this year, maybe we\’ll see these guys there?

A little bit of news now… Makani Fins have announced the launch of their first set of Quad WEED fins – an interesting idea if you\’re local break is full of seaweed, more over at Makani.

British super-coach Guy Cribb has apparently revelled in some amazing conditions on his latest \’Surf Gods\’ clinic in Western Oz, what a lucky bunch! More about mast-high Margs and logo bombs at Esperance here.

After this morning\’s news that the PWA have added a slalom event to the calendar, the EFPT have responded with news that Alacati in Turkey could host a freestyle event in August. That\’s three (potential) new events in a week between the two tours – this year is shaping up to be a busy one for competition, great stuff. More over at

French freestyler Antony Ruenes has returned to the Gaastra team. After a couple of years with injury troubles, he is back on top form and is being welcomed back to the team with open arms. “Antony was someone I have always been impressed with – he has a unique style and the potential to win contests!” says Matt Pritchard. More about Antony on the Gaastra website.

We wrap up the news for this week with all that\’s good in the online video world of timelapses.This first video from Jackson Hole in the US had zero-budget, but you wouldn\’t think so from looking at it. Some awesome shots to excite those of you who are snow-sports inclined!

This final video you may have seen already. It\’s clocked up over a million hits (!) in one week and justifiably so. Some truly epic timelapses from Yosemite National Park. Awe-inspiring.

Have a great weekend everyone and we will see you back on Monday with a bucketload of news to kick-start your week.
