​Pro-Surfers Explore Cold Chilean Waves in Virtual Reality

The rugged, cold coasts of Chile offer a playground for those daring enough to explore the country's remote breaks. Craig Anderson and Rob Machado take us on a journey to these places, enjoying waves together in stunning GoPro 360 VR.

“It's a new way of telling stories and the future of filmmaking,” says director Taylor Steele about the utilization and inclusion of VR technology in Proximity. “You're engulfed, you're there physically and you'll feel like you're there with us.” The Proximity project has been a multi-media experience including a full-length film, VR experience, photo book, and art gallery.

VR footage was captured using the Go Pro Omni, which utilizes six Go Pro Hero4 Black cameras.

Watch for more virtual reality footage being released in the upcoming weeks on TetonGravity.com and find a Proximity tour stop here.

Beefs T.V. Getting Smoked in Psycho Shorebreak

Maui is currently getting hit with the biggest swell it has seen in over 20 years and our favorite shorebreak junkies from Beefs T.V. of course were there to get smoked by these monster waves. It was chaos on the beach. People gathered and applauded as Clay Marzo got continuously slammed onto the sand by these behemoths. I was genuinely worried for this guy’s safety after seeing him get crushed by some of these close outs; and equally impressed when I saw him walk away each time. Check out

Koa Rothman Surfs Code Red Malibu – Kook Central!

Over the weekend, the code red hurricane swell that has been ripping through the Pacific hit the California coast. After surfing this swell in Tahiti, Koa Rothman and the team raced to Malibu to surf in Koa’s words, “Possibly the best Malibu I’ve ever seen in my life”. Although the waves were insane, Koa was still surfing Bu, and the crowd was as textbook Malibu as ever. By the end of each of his sessions on a two-day stint of all-day surfs, Koa and his buddy Ian were on clean-up crew and
