"The Hunt 2010" movie is out!

A very anticipated movie from this years Atlantic hurricane season!  Alek Parker and a few other pro's hit all the east coast spots plus trip it down to the Caribbean.  I've seen some of the clips here and there along the way... looks awesome.  Pick it up and watch the boys rip your local spot.  This should be great for the east coast, especially since the ASP is talking about a Dream Tour stop!  From what I know if the east coast there are some serious pits to be had.  "The Hunt 2010"

Final day for Oneill world cup!

Super stoked we're getting it on.  The comp yesterday was kinda small for Sunset (still would be awesome for my local break).  So everyone add the live feed to your favorites and turn the volume down.  Don't let your boss know but this afternoon... ain't nothin' goin' down but the surfing bra'da!  This video is yesterdays highlights.

Oneill's World Cup Swell outlook.

Thanks to surfline for getting us the details...  wish i could just have eyes on it! 

BRIEF OVERVIEW: A medium size NW swell will show on Wednesday with head high to overhead sets at Sunset Beach, along with increasingeasterly tradewindsand fairly clean conditions. The NW swell will then back down Thursday/Fridayasa reinforcing dose ofNNW swell moves in Friday and tops out Saturday to keep up small-scale surf. Further out, a new and fun size NNW-North swell is lining up for next week (Tues-Wed the 30th-1st).

Flat days suck!

Flat days suck unless you get to go diving with Alana!  Awesome!  Check it out Pipe is such a beautiful place even underneath.  It's flat here too, I should get a mask and some fins.

Congrats to Joel!  Coming back from an ankle injury and a mean laceration to totally dominate every single heat...  You Parko are a Champion!  If you didn't see it you can go to Reef Hawaiian Pro and checkout all his heats and the final.  He scored a Perfect 10 first wave!  Usually my first wave of the day is me eating dirt from china!

Rip Curl Search postponed

Rip Curls Search website said today "Competition at the Rip Curl Pro Search in Puerto Rico will  be postponed on Wed., Nov. 3 out of respect for the passing of 3X ASP World Champion Andy Irons. Competition will resume following further consultation with ASP and Surfers".  A very thought full decision to have made.  I'm sure everyone is making plans to head over to Kauai very soon to pay some big respect.

RIP to 3x word champ Andy Irons

Official Billabong Press Release.

HONOLULU – (November 2, 2010) — The world of surfing mourns an incredibly sad loss today with the news that Hawaii’s Andy Irons has died. Andy was a beloved husband, and a true champion. Irons, 32, withdrew from a professional surfing event in Puerto Rico last weekend due to illness and passed away during a layover en-route to his home in Kauai, Hawaii. He had reportedly been battling with dengue fever, a viral disease. At this time the family thanks his friends and fans for their support, and asks that the community respect its privacy. The family also asks to not be contacted so their focus can remain on one another during this time of profound loss.
99% Surf would like to show our deepest condolences to the Irons Family.  Kauai, Hanalei Bay, Pine Trees, The World has lost a true Champion.

Rip Curl Search Puerto Rico Update

Bumber... Looks like Surfline is predicting 5-6, but the folks at the contest called a lay day due to 1-2.  I guess that just goes to show you can't always trust your online surf report.  It's best to get eyes on it!  Local knowledge wins every time.  My local break's calling for 2-3+ with high onshore winds and super drift... so I'm gonna go get wet.
