“That morning the Backdoor Shootout was absolutely firing, but the conditions were tricky. I caught two waves. The first (pictured) was one of the biggest barrels I’ve ever had out there. It happened during the heat. I went all the way through and tried to doggy door out of it and the fucking lip landed right on my head… but I was right there. It was mid-tide and glassy when this photo was taken. I had some boards made for last winter with my brother’s airbrush on it, and the one I’m riding here was a 6’8’’. There was so much water draining off the reef that day. It went so shallow. I don’t know what was going on with that swell – if it doubled up or what – but when I got to my feet the whole thing sucked up super hard. I couldn’t really tell how big it was, because I was concentrating on the drop and not having the lip cut my head off, but as I got under it and planted my feet, I started swearing my head off in this big beautiful vortex! Then came the heaviest backdraft spit – full face peeler. The wave threw me forward into three cartwheels and I just thought “oh my God. I’m about to get smoked!” Then I hit my shoulder on this patch of sand the size of a hubcap. I couldn’t believe it. I was like, “What?! There’s sand out here?” I’m so lucky because if I’d hit reef that thing would have messed me up. It was a memory wave for sure. Even though I didn’t make it, it has to be one of the best waves of my life. I was rattled, but also super stoked at the same time. That morning is ingrained in my head but trust me, I have not gotten my fix yet. I just want to get a bigger and better one. I’m going to go those waves regardless.” - @bruceirons 📸: @friedenpete

Much like Gabby Medina, @rissmoore10 saved 2017 from complete disaster with a blinding turn and sprint into the home straight that saw her fall only a few heats short of the World Title. This year she’ll be looking to lead from the start in hopes of shaking up Tyler Wright, a two-time World Champ who has ditched her cheeky, carefree, podium-dancing persona and replaced it with a competitive mindset that is ice cold and confident. And with Courtney, Sally and Steph all still aching from their own capitulations last year, the 2018 Women’s Tour might not be the bubbly best-friends fest we’ve come to know over the past decade. A wild year looms. ☝️Link in bio to predictions with @ncarrollsurf 🔮📸: @damien_poullenot

No matter what your vision of the future, what’s important is to acknowledge how good we’ve had it, how good we’ve got it and do everything in our power to protect it so that surfing remains magical for the generations who follow. @campbellmckegg. Link in bio☝️📸: @ramboestrada SW 395🔮

“I can remember the day that Pete Johnson introduced me to 7 year old @john_john_florence. From that moment on I kept an eye on him whenever I was on the North Shore. It’s been an amazing journey watching him get better and better like I did other young surfers such as Rabbit, MR, Tom Carroll, Tom Curren, Andy, Parko and Rasta. I remember a couple of years ago when I saw JJF march to the finals and win Trestles in 4-5 ft surf. It blew my mind. After the win I emailed Bob Hurley who’d recently signed him and told him I’d just witnessed the best small wave surfing I’d ever seen. Period. Tonight’s Big Tuesdays at @thenewportsyd is proud to share John John’s signature film ‘View From A Blue Moon’ along with Taylor Steele’s new feature ‘Proximity’ as a double bill. Come on down 7:30pm for an ale, great food and a groovy atmosphere, aloha.” - @jackmccoyaloha 📸: @friedenpete

🌴There’s no greater vehicle in surfing folklore than the Veedub Kombi.🌴 It’s been this way since SW founder Bob Evans strapped the roof with boards belonging to future icons like Midget, McTavish and Young – to a makeshift mobile home on the dusty trails. And 70 years on, this mystical van has furthered our great Australian pilgrimage into the coastal wilderness. It could be Ozzie Wright fogging rainbows up the Pacific in the jet black tanker pictured above. Or it could be SW publisher Doughie Lees pushing the limits of a refined European engine to signal the first heat at Queensie Boardriders, but one thing’s for sure: the Kombi van continues to stoke us out to this day. And for the legends who drive these golden breed chariots (or love a vintage Hibiscus shirt) we have excellent news… The Manly Kombi Rally is back Saturday March 3rd! Sign up for free to have your van displayed in the heart of Manly and you’ll also score a drink, meal and the limited edition @mentalben tee thanks to the magic crew at @vwaustralia, @hotelsteyne and the Sydney Surf Pro WQS 6000.

“As soon as I left school I moved out to Raglan. My buddy Marc and I lived in a house that cost $60 a week, for the whole house! Still, we struggled to pay the rent at times as there was always something to surf and working wasn’t really a priority. Back then there wasn’t any decent access to the beach, you had to hike down a steep hill through the bush and no one really bothered. So the town didn’t have much appeal to the general public. In the 90’s it was sleepy little town made up of fishermen, hardcore surfers and arty muso types. There were no girls, if you wanted to find a girlfriend you had to brave the Hamilton nightlife and try pick up one of the local bogans. I remember on Christmas day they opened the road to the beach. I don’t remember what year it was, but I do remember we went for a dawny down there. Little did I know how much that road to the beach would change Raglan. Soon Raglan had it’s first café, then a backpackers, sushi spot, a bar, pizza joint and even some girls moved to town. The place blew up and these days it’s New Zealand’s version of Byron Bay. But the waves have never changed, there’s a lot more people in the line-up, but you’ll still be able to snag one of the longest waves of your life out there.” - @ramboestrada 📸. SW 395🔮 Link in bio☝️

“When I was about 12 my older sister had this boyfriend from down the coast. He’d tell me tales of his local wave which I pictured as this long rocky point break that you had to scale this full-on cliff to access. Maybe he added that bit, maybe I made it up? But I had to wait another 4 years until I got my license to actually see the joint with my own eyes. Turns out it was actually a rivermouth sand bar, but what a sand bar! It actually looked just like this that day and I thought I’d struck gold. But after returning time and time again I came to realise how fickle this spot is. Often it would be an absolute burger, other-times guys would be throwing down Kirra comparisons. I still haven’t worked out the science behind the wave, does the bank need lots rain? No Rain? No idea!? The river-mouth is an ocean gateway for local fisherman and crossing the bar can be pretty extreme when there’s a decent swell running. Recently, a boating company sponsored a webcam that’s pointed directly at rivermouth so now I can see exactly what the bank is like from home. I could have a moan about how the webcam has made the spot way more crowded, but I’m probably it’s number one user so I’ll just keep quiet.” – @ramboestrada 📸 SW 395🔮

“This shot was taken during The Backdoor Shootout which was scary for sure because it was a ‘no practice’ kinda situation but at the same time there’s no crowds which makes surfing it a whole lot easier. It’s definitely still scary but you can sit where you want to sit instead of trying to hunt around and get lucky if someone misses something, which often puts you in really shit situations. I think staying at the @volcom house helps your confidence when it comes to getting waves out there because you’re watching it all day. The more you watch it the more you learn. It kinda fries you doing that but it makes you better at it. After a while you see when it’s about to get good and not too crowded and you just run straight out – it’s pretty quick, you know? I think there’s more stigma around that place than there should be. Everyone at the house is real cool.” – Noa Deane @ilovetables 📸: @tomcarey SW 395 🔮
