In July 2013 Roxy release a video showing the female body in a seductive and attention grabbing way, which is typically acceptable advertising in this day and age.

The video continues as we watch her dress, grab her board and head to the beach to eventually paddle out. ...

COMING SOON! Channel Islands Fred Stubble
When Connor Coffin asked for all the characteristics of the award-winning Fred Rubble to be condensed in a shorter, wider package specifically for contests in small surf; the Fred Stubble was born. Geared towards contest surfing in sub-chest high conditions, the Stubble boasts a wider nose and tail, reduced nose and tail rocker, single entry concave with magnified double barrel concave through the fins and vee upon exit. The design change produced a board that stays on rail even in flat spots, glides over reo sections, draws tight arcs in the smallest pockets, and paddles like a board 3” longer. Connor rode a Stubble to a victory in the 2013 US Open Juniors.

Surfing Typhoon Lagoon
To-Surf or Not-To-Surf Typhoon Lagoon by: Brian Brown I was recently a last minute invite to a group of guys heading out to surf the wave pool at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park in Orlando, Florida. I had heard a lot of chatter about this wave and have been curious to see exactly what type of wave it could produce. I was a little reluctant to join as I've heard mixed reviews about the caliper of wave you get for the cost of renting the place out. Chances are, if you ask someone that has surfed it before you are going to ...


Preventing Water drops on GoPro
Footage from the HD GoPros can be pretty impressive but a water drop smack dab in the middle of the lens can ruin your shot pretty quickly. Water photographers have a variety of techniques to prevent this. Here is GoPro's recommendation from their manual: "Apply RAIN-X or a similar anti-beading solution to the housing lens to prevent water-spots from forming when using your camera in rain or water. When RAIN-X is not available, periodically licking your lens is a good backup solution." Some people have claimed that Rain-X can be corrosive to certain plastics so there are some other techniques: Spitting or licking the port or ...

Glass needle like creatures are…Sea Butterflies
Over the past few days, surfers in Saint Augustine have had to bear constant poking by small, clear, spike shaped creatures. They are especially prone to getting stuck in fabric such as shorts, swimsuits and shirts or rashguards. I got a few stuck in my hands while paddling. After searching endlessly online, Surf Station messageboard member gringojo identified them and mentioned a professor who was researching them. A quick search found this article on Jacksonville University's website. [caption id="attachment_56719" align="alignnone" width="512"] Creseis acicula photo via Arctic Ocean Diversity arcodiv.org[/caption] The needles are in fact swimming snails or sea slugs called creseis acicula or ...
