More accessible fun from Europe/North Africa’s crazy run of surf. “This wave in North Africa is pretty fickle and hard to get it good,” said @caiitycat (up first in the vid. ) “So it’s been surprising that it’s been working for about the last two weeks everyday.” (Second up: @yonifly . ) 🎥: @amine_nader_photography Head to link in bio for full #SwellStory .

The late sixties were a time for transformation, and surfing was catching a contact high.

“Every wave is different. It’s something about getting together with nature. Things will happen and you get all uptight and stuff and you get out there and jump into the ocean and everything’s OK.” – Jack O’Neill Here's to 68 years of jumping in the ocean... and plenty more to come. | @oneillusa

Is it a fish? Is it a high-performance board? How about...both? “We went to work redesigning the back half of the NB2 (Neck Beard Two ) template and rocker, paired the board with our CI Keel Fins, and the FishBeard was born," explains @cisurfboards . "The FishBeard is pure business in the front and all party in the back. To keep the party going, we dug into the archives and found some vintage, mid-80’s fluorescent logos and recreated CI’s iconic layup from that era." Link in bio for full edit.

Since its founding in Huntington Beach, CA, in 1978, the NSSA has been the de facto “little league of surfing” in America. From World Champions like Andy Irons and Carissa Moore to big-wave icons like Greg Long and elite CT athletes like Griffin Colapinto — some of the best of the best have risen through the ranks of the NSSA to achieve greatness. | @reef @nssasurf | @griffin_cola pic by @jimmicane Link in bio, a brief history about why the NSSA matters.

On February 13, 2016, Hawaii Island’s @mikey .redd weaved his way through this heaving Off-the-Wall drainer to win that season’s WOTW. “I really didn’t think I was going to make it the whole time until I finally exited,” he said. “When it let me out, it was like, that felt unmakeable — and I think it’s that kind of feeling that drives me. That’s what I live for, those moments.” | @4ocean ⠀ ⠀ Link in bio for more insight.
