  • Surfing Soapbox: Smith takes Billabong Pro, No. 1 rank

    Well, so much for my call that Kelly Slater would continue his run of finals in the two previous events and win the 2010 Billabong Pro held at Jeffreys Bay in South Africa. Instead, it was hometown hero Jordy Smith taking his maiden victory on the ASP...
  • Surfing Soapbox: High stakes in imminent U.S. Open

  • Surfing Soapbox: With his second U.S. Open win, Simpson now a real threat

  • Surfing Soapbox: Pushed, bruised by a rogue wave

    Last night was the first night I slept more than four hours. We have been stuck in gale force winds for more than a week now, with frequent downpours and churning seas. Two days ago while on watch, I was up on the deck by myself. I had just sat down,...
  • Surfing Soapbox: The truth about the 'islands of trash'

    Coming on this journey was equal in two parts. The first being the desire to learn and continue to give back to our environment; the second was that of a personal journey, as in having an opportunity of true reflection in understanding of how my life...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Enduring tough times at sea

    I hit the wall Tuesday, hard, after being on watch Monday morning from 6 a.m. to noon and again from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. I awoke feeling groggy, tired and grumpy. The fast-paced drizzle, gray and cold skies didn't help matters much. It only feeds into...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Reflections from the center of the Atlantic

    It seems nothing more than a dream now that I am back in the comfort of home. At times it wasn't a dream but a nightmare. I suspect I learned more in those six weeks away from home than in the last six years, being confined to a sailboat with 13 people...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Another long winter storm hits us

    The pineapple express is certainly in full effect with relentless rain now going onto the fifth day. It's been at least five years since the last winter like this that I remember and we all know how that year ended up — with the devastating...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Next events could help Slater

    Here we are going into event No. 5 out of 10 on the ASP World Tour, with Jordy Smith winning event No. 4 for his first world tour victory. This after Kelly Slater had gone on a mini two-event hot streak of his own, winning one and placing second...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Pressure is on in ASP World Tour

    As of Tuesday, the Billabong Pro being held at Teahupoo, Tahiti, again saw small surf in the one- to two-foot range and has forced event organizers to call another lay day. However, a slightly improved forecast for later in the week could see the world'...
