Home Remedy: Rubber Bands That Repel Ants

Home Remedy: Rubber Bands That Repel Ants

Summertime is here, which means sunny days, warm water, and south swells. Unfortunately, it’s also ants’ time! I hate these little pests, which always seem to descend on my house in mass whenever I drop a crumb on the ground or leave food out. But the other day, my wife turned me onto a new way to keep ants away: rubber bands! Apparently, during the monsoon season in Japan, ants can be a real problem. But as the monsoon season approached, her family would wrap rubber bands around the legs of chairs and tables—and just like that, their food would...

"step up or step aside" - Kelly Slater

Posted by DAVID KELLY

John John Dominates Margaret River With Historic Performance The Rip Curl Bells Beach starts today, but the world (and the world tour) is still in shock from John John Florence’s performance last week at Margaret River. Main Break is notorious for being one of the most difficult waves in the world to surf well, and that point was proved time and again last week as the world’s best looked to be surfing…well, not quite at their best. The wonky, fat walls of Main Break simply don’t lend themselves to exciting, high-performance surfing, and more often than not leave competitors looking...

Drug Aware Margaret River Pro - Going Small to Go Bi

Posted by DAVID KELLY

Drug Aware Margaret River Pro Going Small to Go Big The Drug Aware Margaret River Pro is on this week over in West Australia, the second stop on the WSL world tour. And to be honest, the main venue at Margaret River Main Break is not the most exciting wave in the world to surf or watch. The backup venues of North Point and The Box are exciting—North Point is the ultimate barrel to boost setup, and The Box is one of the original slabs—but we usually don’t get more than a day of competition at the backups, which is...

Surfing’s New Comeback Kid - Owen Wright’s Incredible Return to Form

Posted by DAVID KELLY

Surfing’s New Comeback Kid Owen Wright’s Incredible Return to Form When Owen Wright paddled out at Pipeline 15 months ago, he had no way of knowing that the session would nearly cost him his career—let alone his life. Wright came into the final event of the year in 2015 as a contender for the world championship. He was widely acknowledged as the hardest-charging surfer on tour, having put on heroic displays at Teahupoo and Cloudbreak, and a win at Pipe and an early loss by a few big names would see him win the title that many thought was inevitable....

Harley Ingleby talks about THUNDERBOLT TECHNOLOGY

What is THUNDERBOLT TECHNOLOGY Available CHISHOLM CJ NELSON Models and TOLHURST HARLEY INGLEBY MODELS Audio Harley Ingleby: (Start 1:49) - Billy Tolhurst and I have worked really closely for over 15 years. And, we’ve not only always tried to push ourselves about shapes and designs, but also with different blanks and laminations. We’ve been working for a couple of years behind the scenes with Thunderbolt Technologies. It’s just been amazing to work really closely with them and push that to a new level. I’ve worked with other sandwich constructions before, which have been okay, but to be able to work with Thunderbolt Technologies and I’ve really...

Donald Brink Surfboard

Posted by DAVID KELLY

WHO IS BRINK SURFBOARDS Donald Brink, 34, was born and raised in South Africa. He started surfing at the age of 15 after his family relocated to the coast, and quickly developed a fascination for surfboard design and dynamics. After a few years of observing in the shaping room, Donald gained the confidence in 2005 to wield a planer for the first time. Today he continues to hone his craft, while taking the art of shaping down some unconventional paths. Donald looks at each board as an extension of the rider’s feet, building each custom board according the surfer’s stance....

Getting to Know Father of the Modern Longboard

Posted by DAVID KELLY

Reinventing the Log Getting to Know Bill Stewart, Father of the Modern Longboard Bill Stewart in front of his air brush in front of his surfshop Bill Stewart is said to be the father of the modern longboard, but his influence started long before curves became cool again. In 1967, Stewart was repairing dings and experimenting with shorter surf craft as the Shortboard Revolution came into full swing. He’d cut down old longboards into shorter designs, then take what he’d learned and build on it the next time. By the time he invented the Hydro Hull he was already established...
