Waiting On Big Swell For Billabong Pipe Masters, Will Likely to Start Tomorrow

WSL PRESS RELEASE

BANZAI PIPELINE, Oahu/Hawaii (Tuesday, December 11, 2018) – The final stop on the 2018 World Surf League (WSL) Men’s Championship Tour (CT), the Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons, will be off again today with leftover 2-to-3 foot NNW swell. With a new NW swell forecasted to build later today, the event looks likely to start tomorrow.

“Stormy weather continuing so the event will be off today,” said Kieren Perrow, WSL Commissioner. “It is looking really good for tomorrow. Almost one-hundred percent certain that we will get underway with the Pipe Invitational. We will come back tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. for another call.

“There is a new swell starting to show on the buoys. It should build through this evening and hold for the next couple of days so we will have some options. Another series of overlapping swells through Friday and Saturday, and now Sunday and Monday are showing great potential for a new swell that is going to be even larger than what we see over the next couple of days. We will be aiming for a finish over that.”

The holding period for the Billabong Pipe Masters runs through 20 December 2018, and event organizers will select the best days to run the competition within that time frame. The next decision on if the competition will run will be tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12, at 7:30 a.m. HST.

Landlocked: The Exploration | A New Surf Film Coming Out Tomorrow

Hamburg, October 29, 2018 – The landlocked journey with the Saltwater team continues.
The surf and travel online shop from Hamburg drives with vans, surfboards, and friends to the Danish coast, satisfying the unbearable desire for waves and their “home on wheels“. On this road trip, a new landlocked clip was produced and filmed.

“Landlocked: The Exploration” reflects perfectly on the lifestyle of the surf and travel shop. This clip will be premiered on October 29, 2018 and will be published on various social media platforms.

The word “landlocked” is no longer an unknown term in the surfers’ community and has often negative connotations, since “being landlocked” also means that you are cut off from the ocean. A terrible feeling when the weather conditions are promising a legendary swell coming in. However, for many surfers, being landlocked can also be a nice feeling, because it reminds us of great moments as well as motivates us for the next road trip.

In the first part of the landlocked-series, the clip re-created the feeling of the unbearable longing for the ocean, while the second part dealt with the positive side effects that being landlocked awakens within each surfer. In the third landlocked-clip, the Saltwater team is using the opportunity of an upcoming swell in order to take a road trip to the Danish coast. With friends, they travel from one place to another; spend their nights in vans and sit by the campfire under the stars.

It’s all about the feeling being on the road, going surfing and living outdoors. It’s about slowing yourself down and living a minimalistic nomadic life. Equipped with a surfboard, they walk through coniferous forests and sand dunes, hoping to find
some fine waves to surf. The goal is clear: “Go somewhere, where you’ve never been before.”

The clip was filmed and edited by Philipp Sigmund, while the photos were taken by Sebastian Drews. In the main role, you can see the surfer Ole Lietz. Philipp, Sebastian as well as Ole are part of the Saltwater ambassadors program, thus, part of the Saltwater family. Here, the Saltwater team proves that this is not just an ordinary online surf shop. Although there are not always perfect waves to be found, they are still exploring the coast with their vans, enjoying van life. The Saltwater team wants to pass on their love for the ocean, traveling and the nomadic lifestyle to their customers, friends, and family.
