EPIC SURFING


This day at Teahupoo- Aug 27th 2011 during the Billabong Pro waiting period is what many are calling the biggest and gnarliest Teahupoo ever ridden. Chris Bryan was fortunate enough to be there working for Billabong on a day that will go down in the history of big wave surfing. The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water.

Kelly Slater described the day by saying “witnessing this was a draining feeling being terrified for other people’s lives all day long, it’s life or death. Letting go of that rope one time can change your life and not many people will ever experience that in their life.”
All images where shot by Chris Bryan using the Phantom HD Gold camera. To see more of Chris’ work check out his website.

Elliott Smith – Live at WMUC

We don’t normally post about music, but this got us excited! The fine folks at WMUC radio recently reported uncovering a lost Elliott Smith recording from ’96 or ’97. The recording includes a previously unheard song called Misery Let Me down.

They were also kind enough to post the session via 2 separate downloads.

Download 1 (Includes outtakes and Misery Let Me Down)

Download 2 (Includes several songs not included in download 1)

Thanks WMUC for the the detective work and the awesome show!

This looks promising – it can be tough to share BIG files without a paid service. WeTransfer.com seems about as simple as it gets!
