Garut & Pepen Get Tubed | Made For Waves | Boardshorts by Rip Curl
Garut Widiarta is about to face the biggest test of his year – the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang. Show up unprepared against the world’s best barrel hunters at the Balinese Pipeline, and you’re guaranteed to fail. But Garut is no slacker. He’s the 2014 Rip Curl Cup Champion, with a near perfect attendance record at Padang when the place is going off. Problem is, Padang doesn’t break nearly as often as we’d all like. So where can a guy like Garut find the right training ground for an event like this? Lucky enough, he happens to live in the most wave-rich archipelago in the world, so it’s not really about finding a place – it’s about picking a place. So before the start of the waiting period got too close, Garut grabbed longtime Bali pro Pepen Hendrick and trekked from Nias to Sumba and everywhere in between. Pepen has mastered every Indonesian reefbreak under the sun, and even with minimal swell, the veteran knew where he and Garut could go for a knife-sharpening practice run. What do you think… was the Search worth it? And, could it translate into a second Rip Curl Cup for Garut Widiarta?
Congratulations Matt Wilkinson | 2017 Outerknown Fiji Pro Champion
In one of the most entertaining and unforeseen, finals of the year, Matt Wilkinson has taken the win at the 2017 Outerknown Fiji Pro over rookie Connor O’Leary. It was a stunning day in tropical paradise, with 6 – 8 foot sets rolling through the reef at Cloudbreak – the sun was shining, the action was non-stop – and the result was almost fairy-tale-esque. It was turn-for-turn, barrel-for-barrel, wave-for-wave, first-to-second and then back again for the entire 35-minute final – and it wasn’t until the last four minutes that Wilko was able to snag the lead and, as the ocean went silent, keep it for good. “Now, well… now I guess it’s time to go drink some beer!” Wilko says, almost laughing as he bends over from exhaustion, a huge grin on his face. “What else do you do when you win the OK Fiji Pro!?” Video: World Surf League Music: Conway Hambone Track: Lush Truck Source: Getty Images

Off Beat: Harry Bryant
There's a new blonde bowl cut in town and his name is Harry Bryant. Classic Australian in every sense of the word. After the release of his new edit "Rust" we had him over during his first trip to California and mic'd him up for an Off Beat and learned he loves his beer, his pits and his fidget spinners.
