What else is new in the World Tour this year....some ask?
Well not much...Kelly won again the first event at Snapper Rocks... Yes, the most famous surfer in the planet hasnt stop yet! Actually no one is asking more the same question, when will he stop!?
If you were his fan already during the life guard series, then you must remember him, yet still with hair though! After 20 years he's still winning, in fact in 20 years he won 11 championships! We can't recall other sport where there is such a portfolio of victories...Do you?
In our previous post, Kepa Acero, the soul surfer from the Spanish Basque Country was saying it was not only about the waves....it was beyond that; and actually this new post we bring over to you is not only about the waves too.
Aritz Araburu, also Basque, now brings a video entitled "Les Landes", featuring great frames from this famous seaside resort destination in the west coast of France. In fact the coast between Biarritz and Hossegor has some of the best surf spots in France hosting major international surf events, even one stage in the World Championship Tour of Surfing. But this place is heaven for surfers not only due to the powerful beach breaks, but also due to the richness of its nature, history, culture and surf spirit. It's definitely not only about the waves...

Here's the most recent video release about Nazaré big surfing days. The Billabong tough crew composed by Shane Dorian, Eric Rebiere and Benjamin Sanchis did well in one of the biggest swells of the year so far, very similar to the waves surfed by McNamara in 2012 with 78 ft.
On Friday 11th January, the boys dropped enormous waves. Shane said "if you had paddled into the biggest waves today, you would have paddled into the biggest wave ever paddled. I have no doubt about that.”
“As far as intensity, power and size goes you could compare this wave to anywhere, whether it’s Cortez Bank, Jaws or Mavericks,” Dorian said.
