How does skimboarder Blair Conklin "surf" a wave so well, starring "A Wedge Affair"

Blair Conklin is a gentleman you’ll surely be getting to know better in the coming years. Hailing from Laguna Beach, California, Blair’s regarded as the best skimboarder in the world, but that’s not what piqued our interest in the Berkeley grad.
Back in 2018, in the lead up to Stab High, Blair posted a clip on Instagram. In it, he was soaring in Waco on a sub-five-foot foamie; it was impressive. For our inaugural Texan surf party/competition (Stab High), the Laguna Beach and Skim community rallied behind Blair’s golden locks, giving him the public-voted wildcard into the event. And when the rest of the surfers at Stab High showed up with bags bearing anywhere from three to five surfboard, Blair rocked up to the BSR Surf Resort with a tiny case carrying a miniature slice of foam. He then proceeded to blow up and further stamp a space for himself in the world of surf.

Respect The Locals is a series that takes you to some of the world’s best waves and introduces you to the real locals — the ones who were there long before we ever picked up surfboards. Because if we truly want to enjoy these places, we are responsible for protecting the beings that inhabit them.
The Bay of Biscay is a gulf in the Atlantic Ocean that hugs the northern coast of Spain and the Western Coast of France. It’s home to many different creatures, cultures and world-class waves like Mundaka and Hossegor. One thing that makes the bay unique is the Gouf de Capbreton, a deepwater canyon off the coast of Southwest France. The Gouf brings a variety of marine life close to shore and helps funnel swell into Hossegor, where the Quiksilver Pro France is held every year.
With more episodes coming soon, the first edition of Respect The Locals tells the story of the North Atlantic Right Whale. Once common in the Bay of Biscay, it has become an endangered species and the estimated population of 300 now mostly inhabits the Western side of the Atlantic. There are many human-based issues — both historical and present — that threaten North American Right Whales. The good news is there are many things we can do to help.

Longboarding with Tamzen/Sam/Dan and Jay

Decent waves have been hard to find lately so we took off early for Crescent Head, Tamzen and Dan only managed a few before an early onshore kicked in and spoit it, so we rushed back to the Coffs Coast where the wind was still side shore and linked up with Sam, Jay and Eamon for some fun logging waves. The song by Petula Clark was released in 1965, a time where true logging was experiencing rapid development moving from "D" fins to the "Greenough". Its fun searching for the perfect wave but so often you end up back at your local!

Dave Rastovich surf INDIA in CASTLES IN THE SKY (The Momentum Files)

This was a pretty special moment. After a week of scouring the coasts of India for a decent wave, we loaded onto a local ferry and headed to an island we'd spotted on Google Earth. It was quite a mission, but the wave looked good (from space), breaking through the jetty and reeling on both sides. Dave was sick when we arrived (typical for India travel) and curled up sweating in his boardbag. But when the light and swell came together, he rallied himself, got focused and paddled out for this amazing session.
Castles in the Sky was all about travel and discover, the beauty of hardship and pushing beyond your comfort zone...and this section was the sum of all those parts. What a pleasure watching Rasta's flow and connection with this wave.

A State of Play follows surfer Drew McPherson and photographer Nathan Henshaw from their home town on the east coast of Australia to the remote desert coast in search of waves. This film explores the idea of staying in a state of play, retaining a childlike curiosity and stoke that youth brings. It showcases the stunning water cinematography of Nathan Henshaw and captures the relationship between a surfer and a water cinematographer making a short surf film. This film is a unique exhibit of light, oceanic elements and celebrates what many surfers spend their whole life chasing.

Meet the Surfboards That Make Craig Anderson "Craig Anderson"

"Craig Anderson looks good on literally any surfcraft. Stick a 5’9″ shred sled under his feat and he’ll do a knock-knee bottom turn to tweaked out air. Give the lad a lengthier single fin and he’ll soul arch through a tube like a cosmic 1970s surf spiritualist. Somehow nothing looks corny or contrived in either case, and who else can you say that about?
In the latest episode of “Quivers”, the series in which we get a look under the hood of our favorite surfers’ boardbags, videographer Dave Fox talks to Ando about his eclectic arsenal of wave-riding weaponry and digs through some of our favorite clips of him riding these craft through the years."

It´s not only about waves

“It´s not only about waves” es un viaje de @evadiez y @kepaacero en el corazón de la jungla africana en busca de olas épicas y humanidad.
Como surfistas nos encanta viajar. Estamos acostumbrados a ir a lugares exóticos en un intento de surfear buenas olas y llevarnos esa experiencia a casa.
La intención en este caso no era solo llevarnos algo. Hicimos una campaña en las redes sociales para que donaseis tablas de surf, las recolectamos y las enviamos a este rincón de África, para así, no solo llevarnos algo, sino también dejarles algo de lo que tanto nos aporta.
“It´s not only about waves” es un proyecto de intercambio cultural y una experiencia humana fascinante.

"(...) The film tells the story of the modern performance twin through the lens of Australian icon Mark Richards, who found inspiration in the boards of Reno Abellira, shaping tutelage in Dick Brewer and created a design all his own that he surfed to four straight world titles.
To this day, Richard's feat of making his own boards and surfing them to such success stands apart as one of the greatest achievements of all time surfing. But what's perhaps more impressive is the way that twin-fin designs have evolved in the aftermath, disappearing for years before reemerging in modern surf culture as the go-to craft for those looking to balance performance surfing with high-speed, skatey fun.
"Fast & Loose" celebrates that unique flavor not just through the story of MR, but through modern rippers like Zeke Lau and Kael Walsh, who took the classic twins and updated versions for a spin. It was a fun film to make, as it damn well should be when the subject is twin fins. Hopefully the feeling is contagious."

Harley Ingleby Takes An Obscure Piece Of Surf History For A Spin

"The Shortboard Revolution was a helluva thing. The pace of the most-explosive period in surfboard design was break-neck, full of blink-and-you'll-miss-it concepts that may have worked just fine, but for one reason or another never really caught on. Case in point: a certain Bob Simmons-inspired twin-fin noserider acquired by Mark Ingleby, father of Australian longboarding ace and two-time world champ Harley Ingleby.
The senior Ingleby started collecting obscure surfboards back in the '80s—he's dedicated his entire house to the pursuit, in fact—which allowed his son Harley to have no shortage of unique and overlooked craft, like the magic twin, to put to the test and spark his imagination.
In the video above, Harley discusses what it was like to grow up with the ultimate board collection hanging over his head, before getting the backstory of the twin's design from local shaping icon Bill Tolhurst and taking it for a spin."

Torren Martyn - Norduland - An arctic surfing adventure

Noudurland is a film about going surfing in the harsh, cold waters of the North Atlantic. It follows three friends from the subtropical northern rivers of NSW Australia, surfers Torren Martyn and Laurie Towner, as well as needessentials founder and designer Ryan Scanlon. They travel to isolated, snow covered coastlines in search of remote waves and Filmmaker Ishka Folkwell, beautifully captures these vast and stunning landscapes on screen. With an original soundtrack composed for the film by Headland, glaciers, mountains and powerful icy surf all come to life in this adventure to the far north. Torren Martyn's narration throughout the film offers a personal reflection on the trip and a real glimpse into the challenges and rewards of traveling to frozen, distant lands in search of surf.

Torren Martyn describes how this film came about.
"The little mission down south to warm water came around as a bit of a surprise to me too, I’d originally planned to just spend a week or two with my girlfriend Aiyana in California and pictured surfing knee to waist high Malibu at best.
One idea led to another as most good times do and before we really knew it Aiyana and I were rolling south of where we were currently camped out driving in awe through these beautiful snow capped mountains in the Eastern Sierras on a pretty straight mission south to a serious contrast of scenes, we were pretty excited!
A good mate Perry Gershkow was able to juggle a few commitments around up in his neck of the woods of SF and before we really had too much time to think we kind of just woke up the next day deep in central America, it was a classic little scenario.
I was travelling with two boards, a 7’2 and a 6’10. It’s so rare that I break a board, maybe one or two a year? anyhow I managed to break them both in the first couple of days.I guess I was rattled and disheartened when the first broke and then when the second went, I was kind of just baffled like haha really? luckily the local guys there have probably stitched together more boards than anyone anywhere else in the world so it was a pretty efficient little turn around, I was so grateful for that. Thankfully my mate Luke lent me his little 5’7 and a 4’11 for a little wiggle in between.
The waves we had down there were absolutely incredible, sort of mind boggling at times. It’s humbling the energy in the ocean and the way the sand and currents dictated where and what waves we surfed. They were there one day and gone the next. I think that was the beauty of it too, we didn’t really have any expectations or too much of a plan, things just fell in to place and I wouldn’t change a thing.
For me it was one of those spontaneous experiences made up of the combination of good people, the land, weather and a little luck on our side that are a friendly little reminder of just how lucky we all are to have this to share.

Ah, MexiLogFest - a single fin longboard contest south of the border, where dogs roam the beaches free of the confinement of leashes, as do the surfers. The event itself is much more than a competition: its a week-long celebration of the Mexican logging lifestyle in proper fiesta fashion. The camaraderie is unlike that of anywhere else, bringing together some of the most radical people from around the globe. And if you are lucky enough to go, you know that none of this is possible without the man behind it all, the head honcho, El Patrón: Israel Preciado.
