Dwight Pastrana is looking forward to the future. He’s just turned 18 and is almost done with High School, stoked to finally have the freedom to travel and surf full time. Growing up in San Juan, Puerto Rico and eventually moving to Maui for boarding school, young Dwight has watched his life change a lot over the past few years.
Whether he's backdooring pits, laying down carves or lofting huge punts, Jake Kelley seems to have a knack for surfing with speed. Check out STIMULATION - a short film showcasing his homegrown talents.
Jordy Smith’s consistent and powerful approach to riding waves is quick to identify. He’s been recognized as one of surfing’s true talents from an early age, building up a mean track record of video parts and contest finishes throughout the years. With that being said, we wanted to know more about his life outside of the water.
The annual Team O’Neill winter trip to Hawaii has finally come to a close. We spent a solid grip of time on the North Shore and saw some incredible surfing go down. From Eli Olson’s outer reef bomb to Soli Bailey’s WCT qualification, it was a season to remember.
Cory Lopez has been a staple in lineups such as Pipeline, Teahupo'o and of course the whole East Coast. His signature surfing has caught eyes, turned necks, and imprinted memories for decades now. And although he is still a stand out in the water today, Cory has turned a chapter in his life that focuses on surfing with his daughter, Alana and son, Luke. Both Alana and Luke carry the same fearless approach as their father and it's quite a treat seeing the whole Lopez family tearing in the water. Click in and watch the Lopez Family do it right on the East Coast!
2018 has been a hell of a year for Soli Bailey. His subtle, low-key demeanor is the exact opposite of his surfing which is well… explosive. After gaining momentum these past few years with some respectable finishes throughout, the 23 year-old Byron Bay native will finally make a run at the WCT, mixing it up with the big dogs.
