Rip Curl Pro Bells Day 2 Highlights and Photos

April 4th, 2012 by John Zanussi

Another day completed of the second stop on the 2012 ASP World Tour. Once again I missed out on most of the live action since it’s right around when I leave work so if you’re like me this post will help you get all caught up. The waves were good again and unlike the first day the men got the call to get in the water first. They ran all the way to the end of round two and there are some very exciting round three matchups. As for the ladies, they’re all caught up with the men and they also have some good matchups in the third round. All the matchups, highlight videos, and photos below. More »

Quiksilver’s Byron Bay Holiday Apartments

April 2nd, 2012 by Samantha Rupert

Quiksilver’s cruel April Fools joke about building an underwater hotel in Torquay, Victoria, Australia was extremely disappointing (yeah I fell for it), but it’s not actually too far from the truth. No, just to clear up rumors, Quiksilver is NOT planning to construct a deep sea hotel similar to the Poseidon Undersea Resort in Fiji or even the underwater accommodations at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Islands Resort.
