Hurley H2O and the Rob Machado Foundation are partnering with select high schools to combat global water scarcity while promoting campus sustainability. H2O and RMF will install innovative water bottle refill stations in high school common areas. The school’s H2O club will inspire students to eliminate single-use water bottles in favor of canteens. They will also raise money for water filters, which will ensure access to clean drinking water in another nation. H2O and RMF will support students in documenting the experience to share with the local community and social media.
One in six people don’t have access to clean water. Five in six can help. To become part of the solution email email@example.com.
You'll want to get to know Nic von Rupp, Portugal's finest and one of Hurley's newest. And we've got some options on how you can go about doing that: you can press play on his One & Only (up top!) and get a full dose of Nic shredding, or you can click 'Full Story' for a quick interview with the man himself. Our advice? Do both.

We know what you're thinking. It's Wednesday afternoon, and you're thinking, "I would LOVE to watch someone get barreled, about 10 to 15 times, in crystal clear, freezing cold waters. Perhaps some of it in slow motion." Don't worry, we're here to make your dreams come true. Well… Pete Devries is. Watch his latest trip to Haida Gwaii (islands north of his native Vancouver) here.
Once upon a right point break, there was a little contest called the Quik Pro. There, the men and women of Hurley descended with high hopes, colorful jerseys and the will to win — and, of course, we got it all on film. Take a look back at the beginning of the 2013 World Tour, which was a whirlwind of fun, surf and meat pies. From the ASP Awards Banquet, John John's unfortunate ankle injury, to Michel Bourez's impressive Semi Finals finish, it was a great time to be on the Gold Coast of Australia. The good news is that the film roll is still reeling, so you can be sure there will be more #TOURNOTES in your future. Like what you saw?

The Volcom Damn Am skate contest took place this weekend, just down the street from Hurley in Costa Mesa. Curren Caples had an impressive ride, and with a frontside wall ride, frontside noseblunt down the the hand rail and a 180 nosegrind, he took 1st place in the overall competition. Check out the video here. Featured products: Original tee, Corman pant.
The swell finally showed up for the Rincon Classic, and when it did, Conner Coffin, local boy and proud owner of a flowing mullet, was there to greet it. Conner won the locals-only event in glassy, at times head high conditions, thanks in large part to his man-hacks and man-carves that make him look well beyond his 19 years when in the lineup. Congrats to Conner on this win, which was not only rad on a competitve level, but also on a meaningful, community level. For the full write up, visit Surfline. Photo: Surfline/Aroyan
We'll assume that most of us wouldn't jump out of or off of a building (no matter how many parachutes are available), but when jumping off of things is as natural as, say, brushing your teeth, like it is to Erik Roner, you've gotta swicth it up sometimes. So to keep things interesting, in his latest episode of Roner Vision, Erik forewent the typical parachute and instead jumped out of a hot air baloon with just an umbrella. Alright, he did have a parachute for when the umbrella gave way, but still... Click here for some next-level Mary Poppins-like shenanigans.
The idea is simple: do what you love and help along the way. It also happens to be the mantra behind Waves For Water. Jon Rose, the man who started Waves For Water, spoke at Chicago Ideas Week and shared the story of how he turned what he loves to do (surf) into a way to help people in need. Check out his inspiring talk here.
After watching his mother battle (and survive!) breast cancer, Julian Wilson has made breast cancer awareness a priority.
