Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of January 2

Welcome to 2012, a year that will surely be filled with just as many obscure, loosely surf-related happenings as 2011. Enjoy.

Carissa Moore Named Adventurer of the Year
Women’s World Champ Carissa Moore was honored in National Geographic’s Top 10 Adventurers of the Year for 2011. She was the only surfer to make the list. Vote for Carissa here.

“Merry Christmas, Ladies,” said this guy.
On Christmas day at Snapper, this Aussie exhibitionist took to the holiday swell sans clothes. Ouch?

Well, that's one way to get noticed. Photo: Grambeau

Only in Hawaii
The National Weather Service in Hawaii proclaimed, very scientifically, that the surf on Oahu would be “ginormous” this week.

Shredding on a 3’8″
Sebastian Williams gets loose on a mini board. Yes, it’s 3 foot 8 inches. Oh, to be 10 years old.

A Man With Far Too Much Free Time
Another bizarre, drunken web installment from Matt Wilkinson.

Whale vs. Shark vs. Dog
A killer whale and a killer shark went at it, then a dog tried to get in on it, and someone filmed it.

The Ocean is a Wild Beast
This has very little to do with surfing per se, but the footage is pretty mesmerizing.

All Leathered Up and Ready to go Surfing
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and friends were featured in this recent Givenchy ad. According to the Creative Director for the luxury brand, these ads are “the expression of a love story between a surfer and a mermaid.” Hmm…

That's what I wear to the beach too.

Happy Faces For Everyone!
Not to be confused with Jordy Smith’s new winky happy face logo, Luke Stedman chose an anchor happy face as his logo for himself. And then he tagged a tanker with it.

A Very Confident 11-Year-Old
East Coast grom Pat Pat Taylor hosts a YouTube roast of Slater, Bobby, and others with/without hair.

Jordy Smith, a very proud boyfriend.

A Photo from the Twittersphere
Sean Moody posted this gem of an old school pic featuring himself, Fred Patacchia, and Joel Centeio.
