Whether it's waves or the Internet, I'm always surfing

Maya Gabeira

Have you heard of Maya Gabeira?

You might not have, since she doesn’t surf contests. But she’s still finding ways to make good money!

Maybe you saw Maya in ESPN’s body issue a couple years ago, or perhaps you heard of her almost dying while surfing massive waves in Nazarre. (I think technically she did die, and they revived her).

She’s a badass bitch. And sexy.
And sexy pays.

John John Florence duck dive

If you follow surfing at all, then I’m sure you’ve already seen this.

But I had to get it on the blog because it’s the weirdest/coolest thing I’ve seen in surfing.

John John is an animal, and his only “workouts” consist of surfing and more surfing.

Getting a nice clean, deep duckdive can be difficult enough. But watch JJF as he goes from one end of the pool to the other, all with a strange but impressive duckdive motion.

Baby's First Wave
Baby's First Wave

This little guy has an awesome daddy.

Or crazy daddy.

Either way, it turned out great! The baby got his first barrel… possibly the youngest kid to ever get barreled?

Watch the clip below, while contemplating if you would do this with your baby 😉

Lost Couch Potato Review

$100 for a foam longboard (Wavestorm) from Costco is a great deal.

I even snapped mine in half, and they replaced it for free.

The Wavestorm can make even the smallest summer days fun to surf. But there’s just not much you can do on it. Some floaters maybe, but that’s about it. At least for me.

I started wondering if it was possible to make a surfboard that was the same volume as a Wavestorm, but only around 6′ long. I did some research, and apparently Wavestorms have about 80 liters of volume.

The biggest Couch Potato is 45 liters, but I actually couldn’t find a shop that carried that size. I saw a 5’10” (40.8 liters) on sale at (maybe because …Lost just came out with the Bean Bag?). Normal price $710, sale price $500.

O'Neill Psycho III Review

When I bought my first O’Neill Psycho III wetsuit in the fall of 2013, I was stoked.
In the past I had some issues with cheaper wetsuits… the necks would “rot” from my sunscreen or whatever reason, or something else on the suit would fall apart.

But now I could finally afford a top-of-the-line wetsuit.

After plopping down $500 or so at the surf shop, I was in heaven.
