iMicah! in a Minute

On Sunday morning 1 Hour in HB caught Micah's monthly surf session.

Dooma and Co.

Yesterday morning all the local guys (save Derek Peters) took the morning off. So in stepped South African Damien Fahrenfort and Virginia Beach's Philip Goold to fill in the line up. They rip.

Summer in February

It was crowded with SUP's, boogy's, longboard's, multiple water photogs, groms everywhere, International pros, and it's 80 degrees and sunny! Plus, it was 2 feet and inconsistent. Feels like summer, except the water is 58 degrees and there are no girls on the beach.

You know who rules these days? People with energy, aka the under-20-year-olds.

Kanoa Igarashi, Derek Peters, Shaun Ward, Chase Wilson, Micah Byrne, Balaram Stack

Hurley Invades the Pier

Breaking news: Miguel Pupo is now riding for Hurley! Fantastic move on Hurley's part. Pupo's been killing it from the US Open, to the Triple Crown, to the World Junior's, to Monday morning at the pier. The kid is top-level.

Along with Pupo, Simpo, Guilmette, and S.Ward made inconsistent 2 foot HB look like tons of fun.

Upper Trestles - the HB groms invade!

While we should have been at work or school, the Quiksilver team fled the swamped high-tide of the HB pier and bummed out all the locals at Upper Trestles by clogging the line-up.

Kanoa Igarashi, John Mel, Derek Peters, Billy Hopkins

P.S. Kanoa went on to win two divisions in this past weekend's amateur contest at Uppers. Ripping!
