Julian Wilson is the winner of the Nike OPEN 2012


HUNTINGTON BEACH, California/USA (August 5, 2012) Julian Wilson(23) beats Miguel Pupo to win his 1st US Open in front of record crowds and online exposure. Slater lost to Miguel in the semis.

Wilson was lethal throughout the entirety of the Nike US Open of Surfing, continuously posting several of the event’s highest scores. The Australian battled hard on the final day, edging out Hawaiian prodigy John John Florence (HAW), 19, and South American phenom Gabriel Medina (BRA), 18, with last-second heroics on his way to the Final.
“I’m over the moon,” Wilson said. “I got a really good start and my hat goes off to Miguel (Pupo) he’s deadly. I knew he was going to be hunting those lefts the whole heat and I just tried to apply a bit of pressure on him. He got that 8.93 and was right back in the heat with plenty of time left. There weren’t that many opportunities out there but it came down to the last minute and I had to just pray there wasn’t one behind it.”
A quick start against Pupo in the Final, as well as an impressive finish, ensured the young Australian would end the day atop the podium (collecting the third ASP win of his young career).
“I felt like I was just building house the whole event,” Wilson said. “I really had to fight for it every heat in the dying minutes and those heats always feel good. I wouldn’t say I peaked in the final but I got a good start and got two good waves.”
Pupo consistently strung together some of the highest scores throughout the entirety of the Nike Lowers Pro including a standout victory over Kelly Slater (USA), 40, in their Semifinals bout, but was unable to overtake Wilson in the Final and finished runner-up.
“I’ve had a great week and I had such amazing heats with Filipe (Toledo) and Kelly (Slater) and I’m learning every heat,” Pupo said. “I beat Kelly, but I knew Julian (Wilson) was going to be a tough one. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a good result and I’ve been working hard. It feels good to see the result come and I’ll be working hard for Tahiti.”
Gabriel Medina (BRA), 18, was electric throughout the competition, unloading a barrage of amazing aerials including the only perfect 10-point ride in his Quarterfinals win over countryman Adriano de Souza (BRA), 25. Medina launched an inverted backside, full-rotation air and followed up with a finishing maneuver on the inside for his perfect ride. Although appearing destined for a Finals berth, Medina was toppled by eventual winner Wilson in the Semifinals in the dying moments.

“I just went for that one,” Medina said. “That was a hard one and I couldn’t believe I made that, it was pretty sick. I’m stoked that I got a 10. Adriano is such a good surfer and is really hard to beat and I knew that it was going to be a tough heat, Adriano is such a smart competitor, so I just tried to go big and get my waves.”
Kelly Slater (Cocoa Beach, FL), 40, reigning 11-time ASP World Champion and last year’s Nike US Open of Surfing winner, quietly navigated his way to the final day of competition. The legendary Floridian topped progressive wizard Dane Reynolds (Ventura, CA), 26, in their morning Quarterfinals affair, but was unable to overtake Pupo’s outstanding effort, finishing Equal 3rd.

“I never really felt like I got it going all week,” Slater said. “Miguel (Pupo) and Medina (Gabriel Medina) have been so consistent, getting 9s every heat and they are tough to beat out there. If you’re going to beat them out there you really need to be on you’re a-game. These are the waves they grew up surfing and this is their bread and butter.”

Freediving in the Hawaiian water.


Born  on the island of O’ahu, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, it was inevitable that Kyle would find his passion in the ocean. Introduced to spearfishing at the age of 14, it wasn’t until a year later when he attended a Performance Freediving class, taught by Craig Gentry and Kirk Krack, that Kyle set his sights on freediving. Through the help of his peers and mentors, he has rectified his beliefs of what is accomplishable with the human mind and body.

Currently, Kyle attends Punahou School where, in the upcoming fall semester, he will be entering his senior year. In addition to freediving, Kyle also participates in outrigger canoe paddling, waterpolo, and motocross.

Stephanie Gilmore claimed 5th ASP world title.

Meet the new World Champ.


Saturday July 14, 2012. Roxy Pro Biarritz, France
 Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 24, claimed her 5th ASP Women’s World Title today, winning the Roxy Pro Biarritz over Tyler Wright (AUS), 18 in Biarritz, France, today.
Today’s incredible achievement puts the young natural-footer in an elite class of surfers to win five or more ASP World Titles, overtaking records set by Freida Zamba (USA), Wendy Botha (AUS) and Lisa Andersen (USA).
For those watching closely, women and therefore the world have a rare talent on tour. Stephanie's talent is unsurpassed in competitive surfing. Her style, power and flow are bar none and that not including that special something it takes to win over and over. Like Kelly, Stephanie is approachable, nice unassuming and humble on land but in a jersey there's a vital transformation; they become competitive machines of perfection.
Surf News, 15 July, 2012 : Quicksilver's Stephanie Gilmore took home her 5th ASP World Title on the shores of la Grand Plage Biarritz,France . Amid sunny skies and 3-4 foot waves, Stephanie was all smiles as she beat out Tyler Wright and staked her claim as the 2012 Surfing World Champion. The quest for the world title was no easy feat this year, as competition was fierce and the battle for the crown was a result of pure determination and passion for the sport that Stephanie loves.

Newly proclaimed 5th ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore has dominated women’s professional surfing since the day she appeared on the scene as a rookie in 2007 and captured her first world title- a feat still unmatched in professional surfing. In 2012, the 24-year-old Australian will now add ‘Reigning World Champ’ to a list of accomplishments that already includes the 20 elite World Tour victories, the 2010 Laureus Action Sports Person of the Year Award and the 2011 ESPN ESPY Female Action Sports Person of the Year Award.



J Bay surf contest billabong Pro

Adriano De Souza edges past Frenchman Joan Duru to take Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay
 Surf News, 13 July, 2012 :  Jeffrey s Bay -- Brazilian surfer Adriano De Souza has won the ASP 6-Star Billabong Pro Jeffrey s Bay defeating French surfer Joan Duru in small and difficult conditions in the Final with polished and dynamic surfing.


ASP 6-Star Men event
Jeffrey s Bay, South Africa


First surprise of the morning was two- time and defending champion South African Jordy Smith getting eliminated by an on-form Joan Duru. In the small and inconsistent conditions, Jordy battled to find the high scoring waves, while Duru paddled into some good waves and rode them with confidence.

Second upset was a dominant Dale Staples defeating John John Florence from Hawaii. Surfing fast and smooth, Dale kept John John at bay all the way through to a nail-biting finish, with the young South African getting the nod from the judges. Dale was eventually knocked out by Aritz Aranburu (EUK) in the quarter-finals and finished as the highest placed South African in the event.

Although smaller than the absolute perfection that persisted throughout the first three days of competition, there were still excellent, high-scoring waves coming through and the remaining competitors were throwing it down on the fast, lined up Super-tubes walls.

In the first semi-final it was Adriano De Souza against Ezekiel Lau (HAW) with the young Brazilian blasting his way through the heat and earning his spot in the final. The second semi-final was a one-sided affair between Duru and Aritz Aranburu (EUK), with Duru winning the heat comfortably and heading on to the final.

By the time the final heat paddled out, the bad weather that the contest organizers had been tracking all week was upon the competitors. With the onshore wind up and the rain falling, the two competitors went tooth and nail, with Duru quickly scoring a 9.27 out of a possible 10 points, showing that the conditions were still extremely contestable.

After one particular wave Adriano De Souza lost a fin on the shallow inside rocks and chose to do a runaround, picking up his back up board in the process. Adriano slipped back into the line-up and picked up a nice little wave from way up the point that opened up for him and allowed him to score an 8.33 and victory.

“I’ve come to South Africa and to Jeffrey s Bay for so many years, and have always seen the guys win the Billabong Pro, and now it’s my turn,” said Adriano. “I’m just so happy, and I’m going to remember this win for my whole life. J-Bay is a special place for me and hopefully see you again next year.”

The Nixon Winner Takes All prize of a US$10,000 jewel-encrusted Nixon watch for the highest heat score of the event went to Nathan Hedge (AUS) for his incredible 19.27 score in the first round of the event. “What a sick prize,” said Nathan. “A few years ago I was in the final with AI and he needed a ten to beat me and he got it, so maybe it was AI who sent me the ten this year.”

ASP at J-BAy

Perfect Start for ASP 6-Star Billabong Pro J Bay

Durban’s Davey VanZyl advanced into Round 2 of the Billabong Pro JBay today.

 Jeffreys Bay, South Africa (July 10, 2012) – Former ASP Men’s World Tour surfer, Nathan “Hog” Hedge (Narrabeen, NSW, AUS) has matched power with perfection, scoring a perfect 10 point ride in the opening round of the ASP 6-star event taking place at Supertubes in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa.
Competitors in the US$155,000 tournament awoke to epic two-metre plus conditions on Day 1 and it was the “Hog” who stole the show, belting the long J’Bay walls and winning the crowd with his enthusiastic claims.
The semi-retired 34 year-old achieved his best world tour result at the famous J’Bay point break back in 2004, posting a finals result that boosted him to a career high 7th in the world. And today, the Hog was back to his J’Bay best, easily registering the highest two-wave combined heat total of 19.27 out of a possible perfect 20 points.
Other surfers to progress to Round 2 with wins today included reigning ASP World Junior Champion Ciao Ibelli (BRA), local favourite and Supertubes specialist Sean Holmes (ZAF), Hawaii’s Sebastien Zietz (Haw) and 2010 World Junior Champion, Jack Freestone (Gold Coast, AUS).
The excellent surf is forecasted to continue on Day 2 when 10 of the world’s highest rated campaigners are due to hit the water. Among the big-name draw cards are two-time and defending Billabong Pro champion, Jordy Smith (ZAF), Hawaiian prodigy and current world rated number five, John John Florence (Oahu, Haw), Brazilian Adriano De Souza (BRA) and former Men’s World Champion, C.J. Hobgood (FL, USA).
Organisers expect to start from 07:00am local time.
The official press launch was held last night and attended by local dignitaries Mr Makhulbulu and Councillor Virginia Cameleo Benjamin, representative of the Department of Sports, Recreation Arts and Culture.
By becoming a World Qualifying Series tournament, the Billabong Pro has this year increased its field from 38 to 144 competitors, affording dozens of local and international hopefuls a chance at competing at one of the world’s premier wave locations.
