One of Europe’s finest waves doing its thing… - Photo: Vimeo
Hollow lefts at Mundaka, thumping beachies across the East Coast, the usual barrel fest on the North Shore, is January the best month for surfing across the world? Could well be, so we’ve pulled out five spectacular surf videos that showcase the epic waves this winter month brings to all corners of the globe. Enjoy!
New Year’s Mundaka
The mythical lefthand rivermouth barrel machine that is Mundaka. It awoke on New Year’s day to treat Basque surfers with reeling lines and back-to-back cover ups. Aritz Aranburu was there, along with Miky Picon, Naxto Gonzalez, and literally hundreds of other surfers! Snagging one here is never going to be easy, but the right one could surely be the wave of your life…
Noah Schweizer - Vol.2: East Coast
Meanwhile, closer to home on the East Coast, Noah Schweizer chased hurricanes to score the best waves across the Atlantic Seaboard. From sharky New Smyrna Beach, to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, and on to New Jersey, Schweizer was all over it!
The Proving Grounds
Now over to the North Shore, where filmmaker Ryan Moss was on hand to capture Pipeline firing after a quiet start to the surf season. Including highlights from the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout, he’s what Hawaiian perfection looks out when all the elements come together…
Join Torren Martyn as he leaves comfy Byron Bay for the Philippine island of Siargao on a strike mission. What he didn’t know before setting off was that a tycoon was brewing. So instead of finding shade in the barrels of Cloud 9 for days on end it was flash floods, landslides, and searching out sheltered spots for new waves!
Filipe Toledo - The Island
Put one of the world’s best surfers in one of the best places to surf in the world and you’ll get a sick surf video right? See for yourself right here, with Felipe Toledo shredding everything that comes his way in Hawaii. Bruno Baroni is the filmmaker behind ‘The Island’, who seems to follow Felipe everywhere he surfs, so you can expect more to come from this Brazilian duo.
That’s all folks!
