With his knee bent, one hand on the rail of his surfboard and the other caressing the water, Robinson looks at home in the heart of the wave. The second image, taken during the recent World Surf League event at the same famous Indonesian break, which Robinson won, is almost identical. Same wave, same stance, same style – but with 12 years separating the photos. “Then and now,” he wrote. Continue reading...

Punk’s new wave: Raymond Pettibon’s surf paintings – in pictures

Raymond Pettibon’s art was synonymous with the 80s Californian punk scene; his graphics a visual identity for club fliers and album artwork for bands, especially Black Flag and Sonic Youth. Though his work now fills museums rather than zine pages, one theme from his west coast childhood still captivates: surfing. New monograph Point Break (David Zwirner Books) collects his Surfers pictures, which he started in 1985. ‘It wasn’t intended as a series,’ says Pettibon, “but growing up around surfing made it a natural subject.’ Lone surfers hold a particular fascination, but these energetic pictures of man and sea should not feel overwhelming, says Pettibon. ‘Viewers needn’t drown in a morass of moving water and foam. Big, forbidding surf both attracts and repels.’ Continue reading...

The drone that measures waves accurately

How do you measure wave height? And how do variables like photo angles, tides, and the human body get into play when assessing a world record-breaking surfing wave? Measuring surfing waves is a topic as old as almost the sport itself. Surfers tend to brag about their skills and prowess by the size of the swell and ocean ripples they tame. It's part of wave riding's show-off nature. But that could be about to change - at least at a more advanced and competitive level.

Are We There Yet?

There’s a cancer in our midst. A silent one. A cultural disease that’s gone through chemo, surgery, and after years of remission, it resurfaces—scaring us with another ugly cluster. Cancer is nothing to make light of ... nor is discrimination. It shuts down real change, bullies minority groups so they don’t feel like they belong, and tears away hope of a worthwhile future. For decades, surfing in Australia has been a male-dominated sport. Has the surfing boys’ club been completely dismantled, or does it remain in partial remission, subliminally attacking surfing’s immune system?

Isabella Nichols: ‘I was bawling my eyes out, I was going to quit surfing’ | Kate Allman

Australia’s latest surf star on her Viking heritage, bouncing back from disappointment and why her role models are not ‘supermodel skinny’ Isabella Nichols wears a tiny bit of her heart on her sleeve. Sketched in tattoo ink on her right forearm is the outline of a mini Viking ship. It’s a salute to her mormor – her Danish grandmother – her birthplace of Denmark and Viking heritage. But it is also a reminder of the warrior spirit that keeps her afloat as she seeks to establish herself among the world’s elite surfers. “My grandma was part of a Viking club,” Nichols says. “Every morning – rain, hail or shine – all the women of the club would go down to the beach, strip naked and go for skinny dips in the ocean. Even if the ocean was frozen over, they’d use ice chisels to poke holes in the ice. She did this up until she was about 85.” Continue reading...

Brutal mid-season cut has increased interest in competition, says World Surf League

Viewership and engagement up after week of drama and tears Controversial rule is ‘cornerstone’ of league’s new framework The World Surf League says its controversial new mid-season cut, which prompted high drama during an emotionally charged week at the Margaret River Pro, made for compelling viewing and remains an integral part of the WSL’s efforts to increase engagement and viewership of the sport. The brutal new Champions Tour rule, which sees the men’s field cut from 36 to 24 and the women’s from 24 to 12 at the halfway point of the season, resulted in the high-profile relegations of Sally Fitzgibbons and Owen Wright to the second tier Challenger Series.

Captivating new TV series searches for Drive to Survive impact on surfing | Kieran Pender

Make or Break’s behind-the-scenes look at the World Surf League engages fans and non-fans alike even if some hard questions remain ignored There is a moment early in the first episode of Make or Break, a new series from Apple TV+ about the World Surf League, when Tyler Wright neatly encapsulates the tension at the heart of professional surfing. “We come from a sport of, ‘aww we’re hippies’,” says the Australian surfer, a two-time WSL champion. “We’re not. We’re competitive little assholes.” Surfing has long grappled with this bipolar identity; a sport initially beloved by the counter-culture movement that grew popular, some would say too popular, on the back of booming commercial and competitive success. Make or Break, an entertaining seven-part series, is the latest attempt by the surfing elite to capitalise on its popularity. Given the show has already been renewed for a second season – before it even went to air – they will most likely succeed. Continue reading...

‘When I surf I feel so strong’: Sri Lankan women’s quiet surfing revolution

Women and girls have challenged conservative attitudes in the hallowed surf spot of Arugam Bay Growing up in a small fishing village along the east coast of Sri Lanka, Shamali Sanjaya would often sit on the beach and look out at the boisterous waves. She would watch in envy as others, including her father and brother, grabbed surfboards, paddled out into the sea and then rode those waves smoothly back to shore. “I longed for it in my heart,” she said. But as a local woman, surfing was strictly out of bounds for her. In Sri Lanka’s conservative society, the place for women was at the home and it was only the men, or female tourists, who were allowed to ride the hallowed waves in Arugam Bay, considered Sri Lanka’s best surf spot.
