THE WILD WINNER

The Red Direct challenge went down last month between eleven surfers and their filmmakers in a competition which allowed each team to use the Red Epic Dragon camera system (worth $50K). The winners were announced recently and they were no other than …Lost surfboard rider Noah Beschen and filmer Aaron Leiber. Take notes of Noah’s style in the tube and through his carves. It is awesome to see from such a young surfer. Watch the clip below!

HOBGOOD’S BOARDS FOR PADANG CUP

Check out this interview of Damien Hobgood on the Padang Cup. He got a few boards shaped by Matt Biolos for this event and both Biolos and Damien take you through the type of boards shaped for the waves in Bali (around the 7 minute mark). Also there are some insights of Damien’s past experiences with Chris Ward’s competition tactics and Mason Ho’s chance of success in the event. The Padang Cup’s waiting period is from August 1st to Aug 31st so keep an eye out for a swell big enough to run the event.
