10 Things Surfing Gave The Internet This Week
Presented by Wobbies World. It's great at Wobbies World,Springvale Rd Nunawading

It's Friday. That's pretty good. Yesterday was Thursday, ANZAC Day. A special day for Australians and Kiwis. Unfortunately Essendon won the AFL game they play at the MCG to mark the occassion, only thing worse would have been if Collingwood had won. 

Anyway, here's ten things...

Bede Durbidge's Fox Grom Shootout went off!

Bede Durbidge's Fox Grom Shootout went off!

1. Fox's Grom Shootout

Because who doesn't love a grom video? Good honest school holiday fun from Bede and the gang!

2. 21 Days With Adriano and Nat

The most excellent Web series around the World Tour brings us its second installment. Part 1 of 21 Days featuring Nat Young and Adriano De Souza going into the BIllabong Pro Rio. Just how likeable is that young Nat Young, and how endearing is Adriano De Souza and fam? Watch...

3. Skimming Mega Tubes

Guy on a skim board gets mega mega barelled in Mexico. Impressive. Interesting. Internetting...

4. Stayin' Metal

This not an A-grade clip by any means, but sometimes a dirty surfin' clip like this will do more to psyche you up to go surfing than any other. Featuring Creed McTaggart, Andrew Doheny, some other dudes and a guy named Metal Jimmy. Wish my name was Metal Jimmy... my mum probably doesn't though (hi Mum!).

5. Chiko MP Classic

More Queensland news and, with an introduction vibing 1991 classic Australiana, comes the highlights video of the 2013 Chiko MP classic, event numero uno of the Chiko QCC Series. Is D-Bah ever not fun? Mitch Parkinson took out the win and received the trophy from MP's mum and a beautiful looking MP singley.

6. Oh Look, An Alana Video

Imagine surfing and the internet without Alana Blanchard? What a strange bizarro world that would be. In this clip she goes to the Surfer Poll awards and laments how special Hawaii is for surfing… Insightful! Clip also features a very brief but excellent cameo from Dane Reynolds's moustache. 

7. Kyuss King in Hawaii

Mega grom with hell hair and super talent ripping in Hawaii. Woooh. Also featuring Noah Beschen. Wish I was 12.

8. White Lightning's Night Lighting!

Mick Fanning surfs Keramas at night. 

9. The Mentawai Pro

A wave usually seen in photos of your mate's boat trip, or on a surf charter promo site, Lance's Right, is home to the 2013 Mentawai Pro presented by Rip Curl. First day was a day for free-surfing. Check check check it.

10. Van Diemans Waters

Matt Chojnacki and Andrew Warhurst saw a swell, hit Tasmania and scored some incredible logging waves. How's that little wave Chong-doggy scores at 2.11? Perfect! And, how great is the cold-weather-campfire-road-trippin'-winter-vibe. Love it.

That's it, that's all, it's the weekend now so go home, go out, feel alive, because you are man! CW out.
