Enjoy this Beautiful Ode to the Ocean

Not going to lie, we could all use some time on the beach after the past year we’ve had. The ocean is just one of those places that can wash away any gunk you’re carrying with you: stress, anxiety, or fear. Just ask Steph Gilmore, Mikey February, Alana Spencer, and Kaito Ohashi who’ve spent their lives on the water. Their recent short film No One Knows Me Like the Ocean explores their relationship with this sacred space, and why it keeps calling them back year after year. It’s a beautiful five minutes of cinema and you can almost taste the salt and feel the ocean breeze while you’re watching the piece.

Great job on the video edit! I’m a bit afraid of the open waters that’s why I’ve only tried swimming in a pool for water sports. After sign this I might find the courage to try it out someday. Thanks for the share! Commercial Roofing

​Watch The Best Waves Of the Year in O’Neill Wave of the Winter

O’Neill’s Wave of the Winter is a contest for the people. With hundreds of worthy entries to the video contest, it was tough to distill it down to 20 minutes of the wildest rides on the North Shore. We’re talking some of the craziest Outer Reef waves we've ever seen, mixed in with equally intense Backdoor, Off-the-Wall and Pipe barrels. And while there is only ever one winner -- who will take home $25,000 -- this documented the best of these spectacular rides over the whole winter and
