While all our Rnd 2 finalists are busy cutting their clip ready for your votes, Stab caught up with #KingOfTheGroms finalists Kyuss King.
While free surfing at Lakey Peak 8 weeks ago Jeremy Flores suffered a head injury that sidelined him for J-Bay and nearly cost him entry to the Teahupoo event. But a speedy recovery, a safety helmet, and the determination to surf as deep as possible in the barrel allowed him to not only compete, but win, the Teahupoo event against current World Champion, Gabriel Medina. Congratulations, Jeremy!
During a sleepless night, Craig Anderson spent some time on the streets with Desillusion's editor-in-chief, Sebastien Zanella, talking about his life, fears and love of surfing.
Leo Fioravanti has spent most of the year in rehab for a back injury during the Backdoor Shootout at Pipe. He's now back in the surf and charging towards his goal of one day joining the WSL tour.
The Quiksilver Uluwatu Challenge wrapped up yesterday and despite the drop in swell, the finalists gave it everything they got. And so did our legends Tom Carroll and Matt Hoy alongside some of our ROXY team riders in the hour-long expression session. Tom and Matt headed towards Temples to pick off the best waves coming through and the ROXY girls made the most of uncrowded Ulus.
Mark Richards first visited Bali in 1981 for the Om Bali Pro held at Kuta Beach and back then there wasn’t really much going on except the locals doing what they do and the occasional surfer. When he headed up to Ulus, he felt he’d struck gold. And that stoke rush seeing the Uluwatu line-up never changes no matter what year it is, where you’re from, or your board of choice.
