Magic view on the Mediterranean
On Christmas 2011, a swell hit the shores of la Côte Bleue, an area located to the west of the city of Marseille. The surfers from the local collective Le Petit Comité and the Delpero brothers, Antoine and Édouard, couldn’t miss it. During the whole day, they scored small, but nice waves. There were not many people since it was Christmas and the water was cold. This session was even more magical due the clear water and the sunshine.
If you had doubts about it, the Mediterranean can deliver great conditions for a good surf with friends!

True to The Search philosophy, Rip Curl took its team riders Vincent Duvignac, Kyllian Guérin, and Miguel Blanco to a trip in the West Indies. During one week, they lived on a boat and scored glassy barrels in a warm and turquoise water. It is looks like paradise, doesn’t it? Unfortunately -or not-, they won’t tell where this spot is.
If the video is not enough, here are some photos to convince you that this spot is a surfer’s paradise.
This wave has already been surfed by American surfers Ben Bouregois, Asher Nolan, and Zander Morton. The photos of this trip can be seen here.

After several years in development, JONSEN ISLAND is ready to launch.
It took some time to the team to work out the various elements of the brand and to create the product the way they exactly designed it. They also needed to find the right suppliers to reach their high expectations.
Today, JONSEN ISLAND is launching a campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds to manufacture its first apparel collection. The latter will be launched in Spring 2016 along with their website.
Rip Curl took their team riders Gabriel Medina, Matt Wilkinson, Mason Ho, and Bruno Santos on a trip to a remote island in the South Pacific. They spent their days surfing, enjoying the barrels in warm water, and wandering into the various shades of blue. Not bad!

The second episode of the Salt Water Sirens series is dedicated to the Californian and Billabong team rider Courtney Conlogue.
In 2014, Courtney suffered an injury that forced her to rest and withdraw from the World Tour. After a year of healing, she fought her way back to her strongest year ever and clinched the second spot of the 2015 ranking.
Will the years of training and resilience pay off in 2016? Courtney is ready.
