THIRTY-FIVE isn't old (I hope). At 35-years-old Cory Lopez is in the best shape of his life and not slowing down. Recently, Cory took the groms down to Costa Rica and showed them how real men work. He was up at 4:30 each morning doing his wake-up rounds, in the water by 5:30. Cory was ripping whatever surf he could find for 10 hours a day, eating two meals, just pure stoke and love for surfing. In Costa Rica he is a legend and this video will show you why.

THE Billabong Pro Tahiti, Event No. 5 of 10 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour completed Rounds 3 and 4 in rapidly-improving three-to-five foot (1 â€“ 1.5 metre) waves at Teahupoâ€™o. Ricardo dos Santos (BRA), two-time Von Zipper Trials winner and wildcard into the main event, caused the upset of the day in eliminating reigning 11-time ASP World Champion and defending Billabong Pro Tahiti winner, Kelly Slater (USA), 40, with an incredible down-to-the-wire performance in Round 3. Needing a major score with 10 seconds remaining in the heat, Dos Santos threaded a lengthy forehand barrel to attain a 9.87 out of a possible 10 and the emotional win. â€œThat wave came to me at the very end and I was just hoping for a chance to show what I can do,â€ Dos Santos said. â€œThat wave was so good and it just allowed me to pull in early and keep running through it. That was my last chance â€“ it was either make it or go home. I knew I had to get the best waves and get as deep as I can. I knew Kelly (Slater) was going to post high scores so I just had to do my best. Iâ€™m really happy right now, but thereâ€™s a long way to go so I need to focus.â€ BILLABONG PRO TAHITI ROUND 3 RESULTS: Heat 1: Mick Fanning (AUS) 14.17 def.

Alain's last (but we doubt final) trip to the Mentawai went a little something like this...
BARRY Mottershead heads over the frigid Tasman Sea to Shipstern Bluff, famed for its mutated ledges and huge barrels. This spot sits deep within a national park and with access restricted to boats or hiking ensures Shippies is only frequented by a hardy local crew who have a burning passion to throw themselves over the edge every time she breaks.
