“I recently partnered up with Chilli surfboards. So stoked. I knew there would be a bit of a transition changing shapers and all, so i thought it would be cool to film this change in my life. I got six boards, all the same, but with different tweaks that the naked eye can’t see. I went through board after board. Breaking them from mistiming till I found one that I was quite familiar with.

A motorcyclist who was supposed to ride ahead of the field stalled his bike. This happened at one of the tightest spots on the course and near the start, so the group of riders were still tightly bunched.

I heard a joke once that best describes the difference between a millionaire and a billionaire. A millionaire goes to Vegas, and he walks into the high stakes area and says “Give me the most expensive chips you got! I’ve got 65 million dollars!” One of the billionaires sitting at the table turns to him and asks, “Do you want to go double or nothing?”

At Baylor University in Waco, Texas, head football coach Art Briles does things differently with his high-octane spread offence. Baylor has been an elite football program in the Big 12 the last five years, so it’s no surprise that Briles used a 400-pound tight end named LaQuan McGowan to decimate opponents in the spread.
Many skiers hang up their gear when springtime emerges. But U.S. skier Tom Wallisch took out the Guinness Book of World Records and set a goal — break the record for the world’s longest rail grind on skis. The previous record was 241 feet.
