Twenty four years young and hailing from the sunny coast of northeast Australia, Julian Wilson is a true athlete. Growing up with two older brothers, Bart and Seb, Julian stayed busy both in and out of the water. Skateboarding played a large role in Julian's aerialist approach to surfing, but his overall love for sports is what fuels his competitive nature. Whatever the game – golf, tennis, cricket – you can be sure that Julian will hold his own. Get to know Jules in his One & Only feature, where he breaks down what West Australia has to offer. See more of Julian here.

When John John hurt his ankle at Snapper, the surf world took a collective gasp, "no John John for the first leg of the tour?!" How could it be? But after the initial shock and a few doctors visits, John John found himself on the bright side of his ankle sprain and with enough free time to sit down and put together an edit. And not just any edit, shot on RED, it's one that will make you reevaluate the meaning of life. OK, maybe we're being a little dramatic, but the latest from John John Florence and editor supreme, Blake Kueny is really quite good and will at the very least make you want to go surf and skate, like, right now. Free To Roam is blowing minds at IP addresses all over the world, join the party here.
Go behind the scenes of one of the best events in womens surfing - ever. In it, Carissa Moore went on to win the Rip Curl Pro, but not before Lakey Peterson gave her a serious run for her money in the Semis. The healthy rivalry made for great spectating and some great insight to go along with it. Hear (and see) it all from the girls themselves in our latest #TOURNOTES.
This is something we've said before (just last week actually) and something we're bound to say again: Carissa Moore takes another final! This time winning the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach! Carissa surfed with her trademark power and grace (think huge rail carves, smooth as butter), surfing amazing heat after heat and eventually putting her face to face with Tyler Wright in the final. A huge score (9.57) early on in the heat ended up securing Carissa's win, as the ocean went flat for the remainder of the heat...save for a few last-minute fun ones! So how could she make this win even sweeter? How about knowing that on her way to the podium, she partook and starred in one of the greatest, if not the greatest, displays of womens surfing to date - thanks to the stellar performances from herself, Lakey Peterson, Sally Fitzgibbons and Courtney Conologue during the Quarters and Semis. Congrats, Riss! We're beyond stoked for you! See more from Carissa here. Photo: ASP/Kirstin
Like most good stories, this one starts with a surfboard. And like even better stories go, this one comes from Bob Hurley's shaping bay. In the late '70s, Hurley wasn't even a twinkle in Bob's eye. No, instead of boardshorts and tees, Bob's focus was on shaping boards. And while the notoriously modest man claims he was no "Dick Brewer," he still had people riding his shapes and repping his name. The original logo he put on his shapes can be seen in the photo above and in some rather epic, old school photos after the jump. And now for the first time ever, the first iteration of Hurley, this retro logo, can be worn on a shirt: get your Original tee here. And click 'Full Story" to see more of the first ever Hurley logo in action.
The first time we saw the Original Tee, we were lovestruck. And as it turns out, it's not just another cool screen print – back in the day, Bob Hurley designed this as Hurley's original logo (hence the name)... is it just us or does this look like a hair band logo? Click through to see how we transformed this guys tee into a summer dress.
Press play to relive Carissa's Margaret River victory! During a final filled with the biggest sets seen all day at Margaret River, Carissa Moore managed to escape a beating and grab a World Tour win instead! Big surf and big power turns went hand in hand as Carissa surfed her way to the podium. Congrats to Riss on her win at the second stop on tour!
