Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico Freesurf (19 Photos)

February 27th, 2013 by John Zanussi

The waves at Jobos never really turned on for the Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico but during one of the lay days other parts of PR were firing. In fact, on one particular day you didn’t have to travel very far from the contest site to find perfect waves. Luckily for us (and now you) our photographer friend Mohammed Raoof got in the water and snapped the following water-shots of the freesurf sesh that took place. More »

Frothy Lip // #No Filter Trailer

Ironically adopting the same title as Fox’s surf movie from last year, FrothyLip #NoFilter is set to be released this summer. The trailer, shown here, highlights some of Rob Kelly’s heats from the Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico at Jobos last week, as well as some of his free surfing sessions. Take a look and watch the New Jersey native rip up some Puerto Rican drainers. More »

Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico (23 Photos)

February 20th, 2013 by John Zanussi

For the second time in a couple years Rip Curl has brought an ASP contest to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Back in 2010 it was the world tour event that saw pumping waves at Middles, the passing of Andy Irons, and Kelly Slater win his 10th world title. The most recent event wrapped up last week and although it didn’t have the huge moments that 2010 brought us, this year’s 4-star event, which was held at Jobos in Isabella was a not only fun but successful and proves to me that Puerto Rico should be seriously considered as a permanent spot on the ASP world tour. During my time in Rico, I met up with rock-star photographer Mohammed Raoof of Ecliptic Visuals and he did what he does best and captured all that Jobos and the surfers had to offer with his camera.

A Day in Puerto Rico

February 13th, 2013 by John Zanussi

If you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you’ll now that I’ve been down in beautiful Puerto Rico for about a week or so. While everyone back home in New York is suffering in the cold, snowy, winter weather I’ve been busy surfing, drinking, exploring, and just plain ol’ relaxing. What I haven’t really done is spent time taking photos. Yesterday I snapped a good one of Tres Palmas doing its thing but nothing else until today. The photos below follow these chain of events almost exactly. Surfed some great leftovers this morning in Rincon, ventured up north to Jobos for the finale of the Rip Curl Pro, and then back down to Rincon for rum punches and the sunset.

Cody Thompson Wins 2013 Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico

February 13th, 2013 by John Zanussi

A huge congrats to 23 year-old Florida native Cody Thompson for winning the 2013 Rip Curl Pro. The waves weren’t the best they could be but what a great event it turned out to be. With the success of the 2010 Rip Curl Pro, which was a world tour event and now this year’s 4 star contest I’m hoping to see the ASP do something in Puerto Rico every year. More »

Tres Palmas

February 12th, 2013 by John Zanussi

The swell from the big nor’easter that dumped a ton of snow across the northeast started showing in the waters of Puerto Rico yesterday and peaked early this morning. There were plenty of waves to be had all over Rincon but a few guys were out at Tres Palmas taking advantage of the big N swell. More »

Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico

January 11th, 2013 by John Zanussi

We usually don’t cover 4 star ASP contests but it just so happens that I’ll be down in Puerto Rico the exact time as the Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico. The contest will be held at Playa Jobos in Isabella from February 9-13. 4 star or not, you better believe we’ll be sitting at Jobos at least one of the days getting our party on. More »

Life Before Sandy

January 8th, 2013 by John Zanussi

TJ Gumiela, Leif Engstrom, Tyler Maguire, and Cliff Skudin headed down to Puerto Rico for some waves when they thought hurricane season had ended on in New York. When Sandy barreled up the East Coast they were faced with a decision, stay in PR or head home. More »
