Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of October 7

The biggest wave pool in the world! Scarlett Johansson surfing! Surfers on the Today Show! More!

It’s amazing how much weird happens week after week.

Oh, The Interwebz

A photo of Scarlett Johansson falling down, became this week’s favorite meme, with web-dwellers making her do everything from ride dolphins to playing the bongos to getting tubed.

Luke Davis, Male Model

So suave.

Welcome, Hong Kong Surf Bros

It was announced this week that the Czech Republic and Hong Kong joined countries like Ghana, Hungary, and Kiribati as members of the International Surfing Association. The Olympics say we need more surf countries to be an Olympic sport? More surfers we shall find.

Nice Try, Girls

So the guys from One Direction (a boy band) went surfing in Australia, and then the fan-girls took their underwear and put them on under their skirts. Sneaky.

Wilko’s New Suits

More ridiculous wetsuits from Matt Wilkinson.

Nature Deemed Unnecessary!

Get ready ‘merica, the proposed $1.8 billion American Dream Meadowlands mall in New Jersey will not only have a ski slope and sky-diving wind tunnels, it will also have the “world’s largest wave-generating pool.”
