A Classic Read

The Perils of The Paddle Out – Sean Doherty On Getting Flogged By The Winkipop Button

There’s a perverse schadenfreude spicing the breeze whenever a rock jump goes wrong… and there are few worse places to screw it up than the Winkipop Button. Seano walks us through it in this classic yarn from 2014. Read it here.

Epic Surf Movie

Sabotaj – Watch The Classic Taj Burrow Profile Film

Released in 1998, the film arrived in a good year for surf videos made by legendary surf filmmaker Jack McCoy and Billabong with Wide OpenThe Occumentary and Sabotaj all released in the same 12 months (what a golden era!).

With grom footage, his first two years on tour, the best freesurfing footage of him and friends (Rasta, Jake Paterson, Noodles Webster and more) filmed over the course of a year, and of course the legendary Bumbat Challenge – Sabotaj remains one of the great surf profile films.
