A very nicely prepared video on SUP in exotic locales using Cabrinha boards.
Pete C. paddles in on a monster wave, looking good!

It's not standup, it's skiing waves with snow skis?! You've probably seen Chuck Patterson ski big waves in Maui with poles. I think he uses snow skis too.


Chuck poles into a nice one



Mike Douglas and Cody Townsend pose with their riding gear fresh from the mountains to Maui.

Checkout the video, these guys go FAST and real parallel to the wave crest. The tow in with a waverunner of course but once they get going, they go!




“A year in the making, Mike Douglas and Cody Townsend fulfill a dream of towing into big waves on skis in Hawaii. After 4 weeks, 5 broken skis, and 1 big scare, they proved that it is, in fact, possible. Is it cool, or is there a future for skiing on waves? Decide for yourself.”


"Mike Douglas and Cody Townsend: The Pro Skiers
Mike Douglas produces a TV series called “Salomon Freeski TV” that covers every part of the freeskiing world, including wave skiing. Douglas and fellow skier Cody Townsend set off on a journey to Hawaii after asking themselves the same question many pro-skiers who surf have: I wonder if you can ski on a wave? Townsend said the idea came to him while he was checking the waves in Santa Cruz, California. “It suddenly occurred to me that a wave had a similar steepness to a lot of the runs up at Squaw. From that moment on I knew that it would one day be possible to ski on a wave,” he said. The duo tried out a few different ski-binding setups before the trip, including water skis and trick skis, and eventually decided for safety reasons that downhill bindings were the best choice because they were able to get their skis off in the water most easily through the familiar system. “We determined through testing on the lakes that the only boot and binding system that we could get off every time was alpine boots and bindings,” Douglas said. In Hawaii they hit waves by getting towed in on jet skis, and also used the wind to give kite-skiing a try."

Wind drives us, water too. Sometimes waves come from afar traveling to an area of calm or even opposing breeze. This is what happened off Santa Barbara recently. Thanks to Blueline for the great images.

Some incredible images off Mike Neil's (neilstudios.net) Facebook page!






Don't lose speed now!









That is some impact and only on the near vertical face of the wave. The real fun is yet to come.

"Photographers Nicholas Routzen and Emiliano Gatica were tasked with capturing the sensuality of the Miss reef and the true essence of Puerto Rico. Latin beauties mingling with exotic locations like Isabela, Aguadilla, Rincon , the waterfalls at San Sebastian, the caves in Arecibo and Viejo San Juan created an awe- inspiring backdrop to create some truly memorable imagery. This year The Miss Reef Calendar is a coffee table book that contains 52 pages"




Ok, so the videographer/editor have a strong butt fixation. You have to admit they did some creative work in contrast, texture and motion insetting stray parts of anatomy. Things like hair, hands, etc., not just bottoms. They did this while exploring PR, apparently Reef is going to feature Latin America over the next few years in their calendars.



The calendar book in question


You can checkout what's inside HERE


You can buy a calendar for $10. USD if you would like HERE

"Rob Machado and friends go for a scary, windy SUP adventure. The crew starts at Turtle Bay, rides open ocean swells down wind and
eventually ends up back on dry land at Waimea Bay. Video: PK"




Rob Machado, I missed him in the clip, anyone got any fish?
