Geoff Rowley has had a career filled with the gnarliest tricks ever done. You’d think a mini-ramp part would be tame considering, but he still goes so hard.
“There isn’t much clutter in Mick’s home. It’s open, white, and sits on the sand just a few kilometers down the road from Snapper Rocks, where he surfed waves so exceptionally that he has his very own giant surf shop adjacent to it: Mick Fanning’s Rip Curl Store. After a marathon year in 2016 filled with personal trauma of epic proportions (think: separation, shark attack, family death, almost winning a 4th World Title), Mick is taking a break. Like actually pressing pause. Something that doesn’t come easy for him.” – @theinertia.
On Episode 2 of UFC 205 Embedded, lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and featherweight Frankie Edgar get some motivation in the form of a custom Conor throwing dummy.

There are fumbles, and then there are really, really costly fumbles. This one by Texas was effectively a 14-point swing, wasting an insane Longhorns scrum push for the endzone as the ball came loose. D’Onta Foreman nearly scored on a third and long run play, but lost the ball at the Texas Tech goal line. Red Raiders cornerback Douglas Coleman scooped it up…and went the rest of the way.
An Argentine football player has landed himself in hot water after launching an Eric Cantona-style kick on a rival team supporter. Former Manchester United star Cantona shocked the football world back in 1995 with a kung-fu lunge on Crystal Palace fan Matthew Simmons which earned him an eight-month ban. And now Audax Italiano striker Sebastian Pol could be handed a similar suspension – and prosecution – after incredibly assaulting a rival supporter after a league match in Chile.
Jump in the van… the Volcom van! Last season the Volcom fleet roamed around North America, making stops from Alaska to Lake Tahoe, some re-fuelling in the Midwest, making time for some rope-tow hi jinx, then escaping into the B.C. abyss at Baldface Lodge. No plans, just shred!

Brandon Semenuk is a god damn surgeon on a bike, there isn’t anybody out there more precise and stylish. And Rupert Walker slays behind the lens, every project he’s involved in should be on your must watch list and added to your favourites. Need some stoke to start your day right? Watch this over a hot coffee before your ride, you won’t regret it.
“This is a remix. We didn’t shoot any of this. We just ripped the footage from the internet and have humbly reinterpreted the brilliant original edit(s).” – Never Better.

Having spent all his cash to construct his gigantic shipping container roll-in to generate enough speed to clear a 60-foot gap, Jed Mildon then had to battle the Kiwi weather to finish construction of his dream dirt jumps.
