...And you’re no longer sitting around waiting for something to happen. You’re out there, going to the moments.
After a few days, life on the road starts to feel like a dream: sunrise, sunset, and the moments in-between, all finally yours again it seems. Laying on a hot, white beach, watching the giant clouds drift by - it all finally slows down, down, down.
Home is where the heart is. And like a compass, our heart’s true north is the sea.
So wake up, tune out, dive in, and feel it like the first time…
Our journey begins in the Island nation of French Polynesia: “De Passage” is the French translation of Just Passing Through.
After our exploration of the tropical wonderland that is Tahiti with our crew of Rob Machado, Alana Blanchard, Shane Dorian, Kai Otton, Nick Rozsa, Cyrus Sutton, Luke Davis, Tia Blanco and Paige Maddison, we set sails and and head west to the enchanted islands of Bali where we find Mikala Jones deep in uncharted territory. From there it’s a short trip to the land down under to meet 3x world champion Mick Fanning on his home turf.
We plot our final course west again to the frigid right points of South Africa with Taylor Knox and friends.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
We break down the reasons why Edouard might be the most interesting storm of the season so far.
Next week we have great looking numbers for Trestles, the Wedge and elsewhere in Southern California.
