Wave Watch – Photos of Local Breaks

Here are some shots of a wave called Impossible’s or known lovingly as “Posso’s” to the locals. Off the beaten track near Victoria’s famed West Coast. Posso’s is a great wave for experienced and beginner surfers (depending on the conditions of course).

We’ve recently gotten our Tumblr up and running, so send us your local break and we’ll put them up here and on our awesome Ola Tumblr! (Don’t worry all locations will remain secret! Unless you don’t mind a few more lady surfers at your break!)

Pool in the desert – Article,photos and videos

A wave pool in the desert? Looks incredible, but I’m concerned about the environmental impact of something like this. I wonder how they re-fill the pool? Does it evaporate daily? Feel free to comment if you have any know-how about this or have an opinion.

Stoked to Surf

When did you catch your first wave? Were you instantly addicted?

This is Živa, she recently went surfing for the very first time. She loved it so much that 2 weeks in the water just wasn’t enough!

4 days after she came home from her very first surf trip, she booked her next one straight away.

We understand the feeling. Once you start surfing it’s hard to think about much else!

Good luck on your surf journey Živa!

Thanks to deepsoulsurfer for sharing Živa’s story. If you would like a photo or story posted, send us an email or contact us via Facebook.

This is why Mal riding is awesome. You can surf even when it’s 1ft! These sessions are always super fun and there is rarely anyone else out there!

Oh how I miss St. Augustine, FL! Such an awesome sleepy surf town. Summer cruisin’ log style. Vids by Drew Miller, and congrats to Justin Q. for making the finals last week in Huntington.

Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2011; Supertubos

Supertubos is an incredible wave. When I was in portugal two years ago I surfed it and it blew my mind. It wasn’t even a glassy perfect day as I was there in the off season. But the scenery and the potential in the way the wave broke was just incredible. Needless to say I got completely smashed!

I’m certainly no Pro surfer, but I had to re-blog these fantastic photos of such a fun and intense wave. If you ever get a chance, surf it.

Master Kelly Slater - Lip Ride, Sunset Rip Curl Pro 2011, Supertubos, Portugal

On Our Cruising down the coast of Portugal in the hunt for waves . . .
We also visited the ASF surfing world tour event;  Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2011 on the surf sport Supertubos in Peniche Portugal.

It was a spectacular event. Supertubos gave it’s best and treated us, and especially the wave riders with smooth 3-5 meters high, fast braking, barrel making waves.
The atmosphere was chilled and relaxed, but that is usual in Portugal. We met some truly nice and pleasant people, had fun and really enjoyed the show 🙂

Unforgettable deep surfing soul moments . . .
