Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of January 23

This week was rather light on randomness. But its quality makes up for its lack of quantity.

Drugs and Surfing
It was reported this week that three Italian men were arrested in Chile for attempting to smuggle over 100 pounds of cocaine, hidden in nine surfboards, into the Basque country. What a waste of boards.


SUP Heels
This week we received this email and photo: “Hi my name is Marcela Jung, I have been practice Stand up and surfing for about 10 years, Another day of surfing I tried to surf on high heels and got some waves …… I never see somebody surfing with high heels…” Well Marcela, there’s a reason for that.

Camping on the North Shore
No massive, multi-million-dollar beachfront houses for these guys.

Great Choices
This week we received a press release announcing the Matt Wilkinson has joined the Etnies team. This is the photo and quote provided.

Singer Colbie Caillat Goes to Teahupoo
In one of the first of many future musician/surf collabs since Billabong’s 2011 partnership with Universal Music, singer Colbie Caillat went to the Tahiti event with Billabong team rider Ellie-Jean Coffey. Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber at Pipe next year?

A Grom and a GoPro
Just some majestic music and Huntington’s Kanoa Igarashi frolicking in the shorebreak. Strange.

JOB on a WaveJet at Pipe
Granted, he could probably get barreled on a door as well.

In Other WaveJet News
It was announced back in October that Cory Lopez joined the WaveJet team, yet mysteriously there were no photos or videos of him actually riding it. Until now.

Just When You Thought Sterling Spencer Couldn’t Get Any Weirder
Well done, my friend. Well done.
