Noa Deane is 17 years old and from Coolangatta, Australia. He is one of the many new innovators of our sport. His style in and out of the water got him a very enthralling interview with Stabmag.com. Expect big things from this kid!
Jay Davies is a man of the road.
And he knows how to thread a tunnel. On an Indonesian island some weeks ago, he found waves detonating on a reef. He and his brother Wyatt slept on a hard wood floor and scored perfection for three days straight. Stab asked Jay to fill the important gaps about his trip. Check out full story and interview at Stabmag.
The East Coast returns to glory from its springtime low. This system tapped into the warm Gulf waters, setting up windswell for the West Florida region. The strong winds on the east side of the cold front overnight on Saturday the 21st set up rare southeast swell for Florida on Sunday the 22nd, with offshore winds all day and perfect little right dredgers. This swell also impacted the Southeast U.S. coast, setting up a great day of surf for South Carolina into North Carolina. All of this means one thing for the Outer Banks into New Jersey: solid south swell. Rusty team rider Tristan Thompson snags a sick one close to home during the East Coast glory swell. Get the full swell outlook here.

Josh Kerr in Hawaii 2011 / 12
Our main man, Josh Kerr, put on quite the stellar performance at the Bells Contest, battling his way to the quarterfinals to a neck and neck showdown with Slater. Slater narrowly edged him out, but the points Kerr earned from the event boosted him to the number one slot of the ASP Men’s World Ranking! His big finish at Bells also puts him at number 5 for the ASP World Title. Is there a World Title in Kerrzy’s future? Our magic eight ball says… “the outlook is probable”.
