longest surfboard in the world

Is it me or does this seem a bit pointless? Anyway, they don't actually surf this weird thing until 2.28 so skip the waffle.

We love Lidl! From 1 May they're selling tons of sea-going gear including boots, wetties (maybe not), snorkles, swimfins, dive torches, dry bags, underwater cameras, and even a Sea-Doo Sea Scooter?! Usual great prices and just in time for stocking up for summer.


SurfStock - It Ain't Over Til The Fat Lady Sings

SurfStock were granted their license yesterday and we hear rumours of a 'cracker of a theme' and headliners to include a band fronted by a larger lady…

The boys have been celebrating their lawyer's awesomness all night, so if you see a couple of boys drinking rose in Truro today, give them a yell. And yep, those are girls' jeans he's wearing…he had a little accident in his own. Bless.

Maya Gaberia wins Billabong XXL

Brazilian Maya Gabeira has won the Billabong Girls XXL award for monster waveriding, netting a $5,000 prize. If the website was a bit more user friendly I'd give you more info…here's what the press release on Surfer's Village says:

‘Maya Gabeira, 21, took back-to-back titles in the Billabong Girls Best Performance Award after notching up a collection of giant rides in Tahiti, California, Hawaii and Mexico over the past twelve months. Gabeira proved without doubt that she is the world's premiere female big wave surfer.

“It is such and honor to be here again, two years in a row,” said Gabeira. “All my friends are here and my mom flew out from Brazil. To see those waves on the big screen here and listen to everyone scream is such a good feeling.”’

Maya features in this issue of SurfGirl, riding one of the Teahupoo bombs that won her this accolade.

Check out the webcast of the awards ceremony here – hotties Shane Dorian and Greg Long feature!
