James Hollmer-Cross has suffered multiple injuries after a terrible wipeout at Pedra Branca, Australia.

Pedra Branca is one of the most dangerous big wave surf spots in the world. It is located 26 kilometers (16 miles) south of Tasmania. The small island pumps a super heavy, fast and steep wave that can easily mutilate the most experienced surfers.

James Hollmer-Cross, 32, survived a hideous wipeout while playing with the local devil, on the 2nd March, 2014. The surfer from Hobart knew what to expect, but he was not ready for a life-threatening event.


Anastasia Ashley: fit to climb

The Pipeline Women's Pro 2014 will be held between 11th-21st March, depending on surf conditions and size, at Banzai Pipeline.

Anastasia Ashley, from California, has been confirmed in this 1-Star ASP event. She reached the final four times and won the title back in 2010.

"I think how you win it is to know how to watch the conditions and the swell direction that day because it can change very fast, you need to be on it. I like Pipeline because it's one of the most beautiful waves to watch from the water, and it has so much power," says Ashley.


Mick Fanning: white water master

Top seeds have prevailed in Round 3 of the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast 2014, held in three-to-five foot (1-1.5 metre) clean walls, at Snapper Rocks.

Kelly Slater defeated Tiago Pires in a performance that showed exactly why he's won this event four times. Slater wasted no time in asserting his dominance, blasting a 9.07 (out of a possible 10), for a series of razor-sharp carving turns.

"Tiago and I have had a lot of heats together. I don't underestimate Tiago at all. Obviously he has beaten me in really good waves, and I had him out here in the Semifinals a few years ago, so I know he is really good at this wave," says Slater.
