  • These “Vintage” Surfing Photos Were All Taken In The Last Decade [27 Photos]

    Since 2006, photographer Joni Sternbach has been making tintypes of surfers all over the world. Tintypes are an early style of photograph that involves producing an image on thin iron plates. The resulting image has a haunting quality that looks like something out of the late 19th century. Sternbach is working on publishing a book of the series and has a Kickstarter page set up to help with publishing costs. The project has already reached its goal, but there is still one week left for those who wish to reserve a copy or get some extras, such as archival prints. To view the rest of the series and other great work, check out Joni Sternbach Photography. 

  • World’s Largest Indoor Surf Park Coming to New Jersey

    While the indoor ski slope remains empty and devoid of snow, the skydiving wind tunnels are still a bunch of holes in the floor and the huge Ferris wheel has yet to be built, developers of American Dream Meadowlands (formerly named Meadowlands Xanadu), are going to bring the world’s largest indoor surfing park of the swamps of the Meadowlands as early as January 2015.    The $1.8 billion, 2.3 million square foot shopping center (see the rendering above) was recently taken over by a Canadian company called Triple Five and they are seeking to jump start the dormant entertainment and retail mall in East Rutherford. 

  • Watch Carlos Burle Surf What May Be The Biggest Wave Ever [Video]

    While many in Europe were seeking sanctuary from the storm known as Saint Jude, which killed 11 people, surfers saw it as the perfect opportunity to catch some of the biggest waves the world has seen. The current record, from the same spot in Portugal, is 78 feet and now Carlos Burle is waiting on final word to see if he is the new titleholder. Some are saying this wave was closer to 100 feet! This is a well produced video of the event but maybe a different song would have been better. “O Fortuna” makes it sound like Burle tried but his hubris was too much and Poseidon took him to a watery grave. Why not something happy, like “Surfin’ Bird”? Nazaré Blow Up from SURFPortugal Mag on Vimeo.

  • Trace Action Sports Tracker

    Remember that time you hit that gnarly jump or got pitted in the radical tube of a stellar wave? Yeah, but we don’t. With Trace you can track all of your jumps, runs, hop, skips and jumps. Using advanced GPS technology, Trace can identify a tre-flip down 10 stairs, detail every turn on a 100-yard Rincon right, and measure a backflip off a 20-foot kicker at Mammoth. And it’s as small as a delicious Reese’s. (as shown in scaled photo) There will be three mobile apps available to cater to the surf, skate and snow community, all with unique interfaces that are tailored to the sport. With each #SESSIONSHEET, you’ll be able to log eaxmples like; How high an Ollie was, How long your vert was or how much air did you get off a wave. Trace will be available for purchase in January for $150.
