Stab Mag Flew an Illegal Drone to Capture Footage of the WSL’s Wave Pool Event

If you have been following the Stab Mag crew the past couple days, you know those guys have been using some hard-hitting journalism to learn everything they could about the "secret" event at Kelly Slater's wave pool. It has been the worst kept secret that the best surfers in the world were going to descend on the wave pool for a test event after Trestles. This was confirmed yesterday morning when Kelly Slater announced on Facebook Live that it was on. Press were not allowed in and the event would not be broadcasted live like other WSL events. 

The staff at Stab descended on Lemoore, California, the small farming town where the wave pool is located, with a crane and a drone and captured the following video. Up until now, we have not really seen the beast in its totality. It's an incredible feat of engineering, with what looks like a train flying down a massive pool. The footage from the WSL is also incredible but doesn't show the scope of the actual facility. The surf world is now left to ponder what the hell this means for the future of the sport.  

Very interesting and informative post. Thanks.

Video: Teahupo’o Was Too Big For the Tahiti Pro Trials

This past weekend, the world's best surfers descended on Teahupo'o for the Tahiti Pro. Everything was looking good: Solid weather, decently-sized waves, etc... However, when the designated day dawned, it became clear that the "decently-sized" waves were actually massive death-barrels.

When Teahupo'o is big, even the world's best big-wave surfers need to approach it with an abundance of caution. 12-year-old Naiki Vaast might not have caught it at its biggest, but even small/medium Teahupo'o looks pretty huge when ridden by a pre-teen.

Some states are better than others for surfing. Nevertheless, surfer Ben Gravy decided that he would catch a wave in all fifty, and embarked on an epic journey to make it happen. Have you ever heard of anyone surfing in Kansas? We hadn't, at least until we saw this video. While we won't spoil the surprise, it's safe to say that Gravy needed to get creative to achieve his lofty goal in the flatter states.  RELATED: 12-Year-Old Naiki Vaast Makes Teahupo'o Look Easy Surfing the Midwest seems
