From the YouTube description:We saw this wave come ashore in Emeryville today. Remember it had to go through the Golden Gate first so they must have had a larger wave on the unprotected beach. Japan needs you. The Huffington Post has an excellent article with a huge pile of resources on how you can help.

Alex Matthews sent me a link to his latest video about a recent trip to play to Surge Narrows near Quadra Island, BC. For those who have never been to Surge Narrows (including myself) it is a series of tidal rapids that can run in speed of up to 13 knots. This creates large standing waves that are perfect for surfing and large whirlpool which are perfect for trying to pull you under (generally not good). If you are interested in visiting the area and looking for a place to stay, my suggestion is to start with Discovery Islands Lodge. They are located just a quick 20 minute paddle from the rapids and is the go-to place to spend the night. View Larger Map The video is embedded below:

Here is a sweet three minute SUP surfing film for your Friday afternoon. About 1 minute into the film it flips over to footage shoot with the camera strapped to the blade of the SUP paddle. It makes for a very interesting and unique perspective.

Check out the trailer for the latest film by Steve Fisher that is about to come out. Halo Effect has got all the proper stuff for the makings of a fantastic film including amazing cinematography, big water and massive sounding symphony soundtrack. I believe the bar has been raised.
