After nearly 10 down days in a row, the Billabong Rio Pro has wrapped. With tons of Brazilians flying everywhere, Mick Fanning and Ace Buchan still managed to crush their way through a few heats and pull in some solid results. Mick, who now sits in third overall, made his way to the Semi-Finals before taking a loss to eventual winner, Jordy Smith.Mick wasn't the only one who made it through a few rounds, and Brazil saw Ace pull in an equal 5th and his best result of the year. Whether he should have lost to Medina is another story, but that's an entire debate in itself. Relive the magi... [ more ]

Shane Dorian and Keala Kennelly Go Big at XXL AwardsRead more...
Every year, Shane Dorian, Reef McIntosh and Keala Kennelly catch a lot of big waves, the ones that us mere mortals wouldn't even consider touching. Lucky for them, they are recognized for the size of their...waves, and honored at the Billabong XXL Awards. We suspected Shane would clean up for his performance at Jaws, and he did, taking home a check for Tube of the Year and Ride of the Year. Also on the podium was Keala, who grabbed a well deserved Women's Performer of the Year award for her backside barrel at Jaws. [ more ]

They call this guy “The Destroyer” but I don’t know where they got the name. Nate got his start riding motocross in a little town west of Phoenix called Surprise. And it was very much a surprise when this clean-cut, polite kid from outside the FMX mecca of southern California started winning events. Now he’s got enough X Games gold medals to make a killing on one of those Cash-For-Gold websites.
The past few seasons have been hard on Adams, physically. A string of crashes lead to broken bones, concussions and more trips to the hospital than he can remember. In fact, with all the concussions he might not remember going to the hospital at all. Despite those setbacks Nate has no intentions of slowing down. For the past two years he has been trying to qualify for a supercross night show, a dream he has had since he was young. Both attempts have ended in injury but Nate swears he won’t quit until he puts his number 741 Yamaha into the program. He was just tenths of a second from making it happen in 2010.
