The Endless Summer: the iconic film in HD glory

"The Endless Summer", the masterpiece film of the surfing culture, will be displayed in a 30-16.5 feet outdoor HD screen, in New York.

The ultimate surfing adventure featuring Bruce Brown's search for perfect waves will be part of the Big Screen Project, on November 9th, at 7pm.

The film has been digitally re-mastered with 5.1 surround sound. It seems balancing colors and removing 80% of the film dirt was a hard task.

Fans will be able to buy "The Endless Summer" Director's Special Edition, from 16th November, in a two disc set.

Quiksilver King Of The Peak: claiming waves is great!

Who said claiming a wave is pure vanity? Well, in almost all surfing competitions it is, but now it's time for the Quiksilver King Of The Peak.

The event will be held at the Sebastian Inlet, on November 6th and 7th and will showcase the best surfers of the American Continent. The winner will simply collect a $3,000.00 prize money: that's the King’s Bonus Treasure!

Showing off is clearly the main idea behind this contest format. Which means 92-man surfers will compete in 4-5 man heats.

Each athlete has a chance to get on a roll pocketing cash by choosing the best wave ridden and claiming it inside the allotted 20-minute heat period.

Duane DeSoto: party time

Duane DeSoto is the new king of world longboard. The Hawaiian surfer, 33, has just conquered his first ASP World Longboard title, after beating the French Antoine Delpero, in Makaha, Oahu.

DeSoto was playing in home waters, in front of friends and family, but showed a great stamina to win five heat victories in a row.

“This feels insane,” DeSoto said. “I’ve been trying for so many years and I’m 33 and I finally got a title. I started doing these when I was 16. I’m just so incredibly happy to be here and it couldn’t get any better".

Also, Duane has scored the best waves of the entire event. In the semi-final, the Hawaiian defeated his fellow mate Bonga Perkins, the 38-year-old experienced longboarder. But, the island of Hawaii is still mourning the loss of a great friend and surfer.

“I’ve got a lot of emotions running though my head,” Perkins said. “Losing my good friend Andy (Irons) and my Mom, for me to make it this far into the event with these many things in my head, I’m pretty happy. I’m pretty stoked.”
