What isn’t to love about Josh Kerr? Not only is he a webcast drawcard, but he also wake surfs like a boss. Following the Rio Pro, Kerrzy stuck around in Brazil with fellow Rusty teamer Noa Deane, and did time on a friend’s yacht. The benefit of a heavier boat? A much bigger wake. Really, it isn’t too far from a wavepool when done right. “This thing was different to the wake boats I usually surf behind,” says Kerrzy. “It’s a 30-foot, three-bedroom yacht. It’s naturally weighted almost perfect.”

Looking back, it was probably foolish to think this year’s NRL grand final was ever going to end any other way than by Johnathan Thurston’s hand. The man who has led this team from the front in almost every one of his 238 games for North Queensland, did so again on the biggest stage. In the eyes of one of his team-mates, it confirmed Thurston as the best player in history. “He’s the best there is in the game and in my opinion he’s the greatest player we’ve seen,” Cowboys five-eighth Michael Morgan told Grandstand.
We all remember Willie Mason’s efforts with the microphone strapped to him but this one is just as good. Former North Queensland prop Ashton Sims was mic’d up on the weekend in Warrington 34-24 win over Leigh during their massive quarter-final clash in the Challenge Cup. The Wolves prop said he was left embarrassed by the footage, despite producing an inspirational performance. “It’s a little bit cringe worthy looking back on it,” Sims said of the footage. “I play with a lot of emotion.”

The Diamondbacks hosted the Rockies recently, and with both teams mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, it couldn’t have been a more meaningless contest. That didn’t stop the announcers from ripping a group of sorority girls from Arizona State, who spent a fair amount of time taking multiple selfies while the game was going on. “Every girl in the picture is locked into her phone,” one of them ranted. “Every single one is dialed in. Welcome to parenting in 2015.” The whole thing is pretty hilarious.

“For our second episode, we invited Tommy Chill, a super good skateboarder sponsored by the Bad Idea Skateboard Company to stop by a DSW with us and try out a new pair of sandals. The selection was slim, but Tommy managed to slip on and walk out with a pair of urban camo Nike sliders that were only slightly too small for him. No worries for Tommy though, he went to work in Soho and Chinatown by filming this entire episode in only a few hours in those 00% protection sandals. His reward: Jenkem sponsored footrubs in Chinatown and a new edit to prove just how “chill” Tommy keeps it.” – Jenkem Magazine.
