Rincon finally came to life after weeks, maybe even months of completely unremarkable surf. The run of swell has offered plenty of rippable, (mostly) sunny, glassy lines.

This week’s dose of surf porn takes us to some strange foreign industrial minefield composed of these concrete “tetrapods”. The menacing tetrapods form a sort of jetty in which massive wave monsters break and try to swallow our brave surfing heroes.
While I choose to snowboard over skiing these days, the shit these guys are doing on 2 narrow blades is pretty insane. Not only is the extreme ski footage in this excerpt from the Partly Cloudy film mind blowing, but the title cards and the overall edit is pretty top notch as well.
