Presented by the Subway Summer Surf Series

It's a new year. It's a new me. It's a new you. To be honest, I like the old you. You should just keep being the old you. Sick one. Anyway, let's kick off 2015 with the ten best things in surfing from the past week that don't include hangovers or regrettable affirmations. Deal? Deal!
1. A Lil Mick Fanning In France Clip
Mick Fanning doesn't ordinarily release a lot of his own freesurfing clips, but woodyalookadat, here he has. And not only that, it's in pumping barrels in France. Yes it's short, but it's sweet, and sountracked by The War On Drugs, it's the best thing to happen to 2015, even though it happened in 2014.
2. Mason Ho Is The Essence of Summer, And Summer Is The Essence of Life
Switching stances mid floater, kickflip attempts, run ins, it’s the summer of fun with your pal Mason Ho. Kick stall spraying your little sister like the big brother you are and should always be in the festive season.
3. Countdowning The Biggest Stories of 2014
If we don't know our history, we are doomed to repeat it, so it's best we look back on this and don't let Kelly Slater leave Quiksilver again. Jed Smith counts down the biggest stories of 2014 for his Youtube show, The Pipeline.
4. The Smith Brothers At P-Pass
Go-Pro muse, Koa Smith, and his brother Alex go to the Micronesian big hollow right hander of P-Pass and get incredible footage. Of course they do, they’re pros at this kind of stuff... Go-pros *cringe*
5. RVCALHOA Part 2
Jimmy Kinnaird makes most of RVCA’s videos, and that’s why thye’ve got such flavour. He made 2011 Suring World movie, The House, way back when, only he did it credited as an old Mexican serial killer (#truestory). This video here comes from the North Short and features RVCA’s newest signing, Jay Davies, being awesome, and no Mexican serial killers.
6. Pipe From Above
Want to watch incredible drone footage from Pipe’s best day of 2014? Yes you do… with this music, the euphoria is so great you’ll get a dry mouth.
7. Taylor Knox Is, Will Always Be, The Guy
Here he is being the man in Mexico. Right points and buried rails forever. #foreverandever Never stop being you Taylor. You’re the man.
8. Watch Someone Almost Die On A Jet Ski At Nazare, Portugal
The 43 second mark… almost dying might be exaggerating, but if it was me I'd be totall dead from the sheer stress of the situation. Also, I can't drive a jet-ski... why would I even be out there in this ridiculous hypothetical situation? This is absurd. Big wave surfing is so silly.
9. Dingo’s Crazy Fishing Story
Dean Morrison has a crazy/epic fishing story that involves the Harrington twins and Paul Fisher. Think about it guys, we’re lucky the Mad Hueys even exists...
10. The Showreel of Young Luka Kerr
Luka Kerr was our latest Young, Free, Alright! featured young (15) creative and this is the showreel from the last few years of the Sydney-sider. If you like some heaving Australian slabs, stick in there.
Bonus... The Subway Summer Surf Series
Our epic sponsore, the Subway Summer Surf Series, is still tearing through the funnest period of the year and the groms are ripping. Event No.6 took place down at Clifton Beach in Tasmania, and how darling is the interview with the Under 21 Girls Winner Brooke Mason. Stoke is infectious, and Brooke Mason is the best!
And that was this week in surfing. Have a good weekend everyone. CW out.
