Introducing the new Desert Storm Gun model. Ive been working on this latest gun design with Camel for over 18 months. I’m really excited about the direction we are going in and in the future of high volume big wave gun designs. Checkout the specs here.
Nate Behl doing his thing on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Nate rides the Napalm model in this clip after becoming a fan of this model last year in his travels through the Mentawaii Islands, Indonesia. Stay tuned for more of Nates adventures soon.
Team rider Zac Wightman enjoyed a recent trip to the North Shore of Oahu and scored some epic Pipe barrels. He stayed at the Quiksilver house while competing at the Sunset Beach Junior event and had come back to OZ with some valued Hawaiian experience. Thanx for testing out the Atom and Lenny the Ox models out over there mate, I’m glad they did the job.
Farewell to our friend and Japan distributor Tadashi Nakahara. He passed away in tragic circumstances at Shelley Beach on the 9/2/2015. Our condolences go out to the Nakahara family, friends and the Japanese surfing community. We will always remember you for your smile and friendly ways. RIP Tadashi.
After all Mark Vissers years of effort, congrats on winning the biggest paddle-in award at the Oakley / Surfing Life Big Wave Awards.
The 11th of November was opening day at Jaws this season and it hasn’t disappointed. I’ve seen Twig catch some big waves before, but this was a monster! Just off the plane from surfing in Europe, Twig grabbed his fresh batch of Webster Guns and this was his first surf on the new 10’0 x 21 3/4 x 4, stoked it worked. View the video footage here. Check out the TWIG board model here.
Zac Wightman recently ventured to the Philippine Islands to soak up some culture and compete in the local WQS event. At only 16 years old, he claimed his first WQS heat win and finished the event in 8th place.
Congratulations to Camel on the 2014/15 XXL nomination. He caught this bomb on his latest West Coast expedition. Stay tuned for the new BLACK HULA model gun Camel and I have been working on together this year, it’ll catch you the wave of your life if you want it!
