PVW X BWRAGG SCHOLARSHIP opportunity! My brothers and I decided to sponsor one boy and one girl under the age of 25 yrs to be apart of the upcoming San Diego @b.w.r.a.g event on June 21/22. We at the @positivevibewarriors are asking you to post a video of yourself in the ocean saying why you would like to be apart of the life saving summit, and tag both @positivevibewarriors and @b.w.r.a.g so we can pick the winner June 17th! All the info in my insta selfie video too! It’s an incredible program and we are SO proud to offer this summit to the next generation of ocean users and all around protectors of the sea! Thanks everyone, much love! #keepthevibealive
Easily one of the biggest surfing influence in our surfing lives, @nathanfletcher has become an older brother/ mentor for my brothers and me over the years of surf trips and big wave adventures. His humble nature, with his actions speaking louder than his words, has always been something about Nate that I look up to and admire. Nate and his whole fletcher family have hugely defined how we all look at surfing and approaching gnarly situations. Love them all, and stoked to see Nate’s new film make it huge into theaters across the us. This movie rules, and I can’t wait to see it again on the big screen tonight. Please go check it out, it’s premiering tonight at a theater near you. Thanks Nate for all you do, stoked to see this film documenting your journey! #HEAVYWATER #fletcherdna
Proud to have Ahmed Anoof @a_anoof from the beautiful islands of Maldives, as this week’s @positivevibewarriors grom of the week!!!!! His surf stoke is contagious and it’s incredible to see this next generation of shred starting to make a huge splash in the world of surf. It’s one of my favorite places on the planet and to see Ahmed’s air shots and huge shakas makes me proud to be a surfer!!! Keep up the charge brother, can’t wait to see your surfing in the years to come! Full interview LINK IN BIO thanks Austin Ware for nominating this legend!!!
Surfing big waves can easily be the most scary thing and the most rewarding at the same time. To me the best part about it has always been the comradarie that you get to experience on those days when the waves are up! One way to calm the nerves whenever I get to surf with @tannergud @danedamus or @nathanfletcher is to ride waves together cause there’s so much room and it’s the most fun you can have. Here’s @tannergud and me sharing one of our rides in the evening at Waimea after a beautiful day of a great swell! double big red!!!
When I first heard about Kiara Goold, I knew she was someone special! Her spirit and joy is emanating across the Tahitian Islands with big smiles, epic shredding, and lots of laughs with her and her family and friends. At only 8 years old she is already busting airs, surfing Teahupo’o, and doing backside grab rail bottom turns with her best friend @missteahupoo. These girls are the future generation of surf that will soon reflect the beauty and spirit of the islands across the globe. Thanks for being this week’s #gromoftheweek by @positivevibewarriors @kiaragoold! Can’t wait to surf with you in person, keep the shred alive!! Her interview is the link in my bio!!! ️
Been loving my air boots by @vanssurf. The best part about surfing is always finding new feelings and new lines, and the boots have been inspiring me to lift the airs up! Thanks @jimmicane for the shot from yesterday morning ramps! #gromsforlife #outsidethelines
First surf in California waters with the and @hanaleireponty. Think he likes going left! Haha. #gromsforlife
What it feels like when that Southern Hemisphere swell is on its way, but the wait is so long @jimmicane
Monday’s inspiration to bury the rail with two of my all time surfing hero’s @mattarchbold and @curfuffle drawing some timeless lines. #inspirationstation
Japan is pretty much the sickest place on planet earth, mainly because of people like this human right here, @hiromorichan #positivevibesamurai. Had such an incredible trip catching up with my Japanese brotherhood in the land of the rising sun. Waves were sick and even though the contest didn’t go as planned for me, America had a lot to be proud about with @nat_young and @evangeiselman rising to the top two positions! Love it. Stoked to be getting home now and into some summer fun, thanks @hiromorichan @cisurfboards_japan for the sickest trip!!!! (Slide right for video message from hiro to Hanalei, I think it captures the spirit of our trip!) #gromsforlife #welovecoffee #chibastyle
