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.

Namibia's Skeleton Coast doesn't have a lot going for it. The desert coast is inhospitable, home to dense fog, less than half an inch of annual rainfall, and over 1000 rusting shipwrecks. The local San people referred to it as "The Land That God Made in Anger," which is both quite poetic and a pretty solid indication that it's not a very nice place.

Have you ever been surfing at Pipeline in Hawaii, caught a perfect barrel, and realized that you're not going to make it out of the barrel before it crushes you? No? We haven't either, but it happens. So, in anticipation of a future surf trip during which we'll have developed the skills requisite to get barreled, there's no one we'd rather have prepare us for the perils of a closeout than Nate Florence.  RELATED: WSL Cancels 2020 Season, Makes Tour Format Changes Given how much Nate surfs,

It’s certainly been a weird time for surfing. The WSL's season was canceled. Who knows when we’ll be able to safely hop on a plane for that dream surf getaway. Not to mention all the beaches throughout the U.S. that have been closed altogether because of the pandemic. These days a little good news wouldn’t be so bad, which is why the Portuguese Surf Film Festival decided to offer their incredible line up of films for free through a virtual event. Sure, it doesn’t beat being on the beaches of
