Mikey O'Shaughnessy | Something Better

The stigma around seeking help for depression and mental health issues is deep and old.

Reaching out for help can be hard, especially when it's not a topic that is discussed openly in society. Sometimes we feel down and depressed, and it's important to remember that these feelings that are human, natural and ok.

If you have that one great friend that you can rely and count on, this person can help.

Step into the shoes of one of the North Shore's staple surfers, Mikey O'Shaughnessy as he offers positivity in the wake of losing someone very dear to him, which impacted the surfing community as a whole.

300 million people worldwide suffer from depression. It is something that affects everyone at some point in their life, whether it be personal or through the experiences of a loved one. Mikey shows us first hand, through his surfing, that life is worth living.

THE SHAPING ROOM - Chaz Kinoshita from Nick Ricca

Some people find solace in the sea. Others, out on the open road. Some people live behind the lens. Others just like to make music in friends' garages. For those who create, we all have such a place, a home away from home. For Chaz Kinoshita, it's the shaping room.

Josie Prendergast

I have been fortunate enough to be raised next to the ocean and have had the opportunity to come back and reconnect with the island and our family when I can. Last November, with my Billabong family I was able to explore, shoot, surf and go on adventures around my island home. There are no words that illustrate the love I have for my family and with that being said majority of them live in the Philippines.
It was incredibly special to me that Billabong were able to meet and share time with the people who mean so much to me. Reflecting on that special week, so many amazing memories were created and shared.
My love for this island and the incredible people will never fade, never die. Siargao makes my heart sing and fills it full of love. I cannot express how special this place is to me; it is otherworldly.

Coco Ho freesurfing Lakey Peak in Indonesia

For 10 days, she’s free. She is free to surf without judging eyes. She's free to feel, to play in mama ocean like she once did as a grom with her older brother Mason.

Escaping to sneak a surf break at Lakey Peak in Sumbawa, Indonesia. A place where i'’s all waves and no service. It's time to heal, to strengthen, to remember what it is to love surfing and what put you on your first wave.

Coco Ho surfs all year for one goal to win, every heat, every event – she ultimately wants to bring home World Championship Title.

After nine years she's still got that fire...

Watch her hit the back half of this year's tour and into 2018, there's no other surfer in the world like this one.

Lilly works in France as a surf coach during her holidays to train Europe’s surf youngsters and to prepare herself for upcoming surf competitions.

Boat is almost sucked by hole

This happen in Brazil.

There is a dam that drains the water when the dam floods and two city officials connected this dam to empty the dam and the two men of the video entered the pond to rescue the fish that was being sucked in by the whirlwind that formed there that in the beginning was weak but later became stronger and pulled the boat towards him but the two men managed to balance the weight and thus avoiding that the boat was sucked with them in. thank God it was just a fright.

Irish Dreams

Irish Dreams from Pedro Santos Ribeiro

Why joining a bodyboarder ( Daniel Fonseca) and a surfer ( Lourenço Katzstein ) is always so hard ? I think we all know why... But this two have a common taste for slabs, heavy and mutant waves. It was really easy choose the destination knowing this - Ireland. They saw a good swell coming to Ireland and decided to go. Searching for perfect waves on really cold water.
Why can dreams be in freezing water ?

Video from Red Bull

It’s summertime on the North Shore of Oahu and there’s no waves, sounds like it’s time for a road trip! The first episode of season six has the guys chasing swells across the globe on a trip of a lifetime. But since Poopies has been gone for months.

Hit the link in This is J.O.B.  for more of the mayhem.



Be Limitless

Telia: Be Limitless – Bruno from hjaltelinstahl

He was a talented surfer and active adventurer, when his life was derailed by a horrific car accident that cost him the use of his precious legs.

26 years old, and paralyzed from the waist down, Bruno Hansen hit rock bottom. After five years, imprisoned in his own body, he finally decided to take his own life by drowning.

Thankfully, a chance encounter made him rediscover his love for the ocean. Today, he's a two time adaptive surfing world champion, chasing his third title.


Radical Times Southern California

Radical Times SoCal -
Your Boardrider’s Guide to a great slice of the Golden State.

Allure. That’s what it is! When gold was discovered in California in the 1800s, it resulted in a population boom that saw tens of thousands of runaways, castaways, rebels and revolutionaries leave their old lives behind and trade them it in for something wild and unpredictable. By now, most of that gold’s been dug up. But the California allure — the promise of something new, that gravity that draws you towards its mountains and waves — remains just the same.
