We’ve exposed the Endless Summer as a lie. Truth is, most of the world’s finer corners get their best waves during winter months. The good news is that the 2015 Southern Hemisphere winter is starting to come alive, and Tahiti has been one of the first places to feel its big and blue embrace.
In the year 2065, cybernetic advancements give rise to augmented human soldiers, a new breed of badass charged with preserving our way of life. Their mission leads them to a seedy bar in Singapore, where they encounter an underworld boss and his elite squad of mercenaries. Among them is a 5-foot-11, 215-pound battering ram of a man who’s exactly like the world’s most ferocious running back circa 2015: the Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch.
Tyler Fernengel sessions the abandoned Silverdome in Detroit, making the desolate stadium his own playground.

Colton Satterfield made BMX history tonight by landing the first double flair on the mega ramp earning him the gold medal in BMX Big Air at X Games Austin 2015. With the win coming on his 3rd and final run, the gold is the second-straight in the event for the Monster Energy rider.
American Pharoah sat back in the starting gate and when the doors opened he was late. For a moment, for one second out of 146, it didn’t look good for the horse who was chasing history. But the 3-year-old bay colt, bidding to become the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown, burst to the front and took control of the small, eight-horse field and his destiny. It is the first time a horse has won the triple crown, which is winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes consecutively, in 37 years. So it’s sort of a big deal.
Two ultra-slow-mo flips and a tweaked out stalefish shot in one thousand frames per second from the archives of Phantom-cam specialist Chris Bryan.
Meet Katie Castro, seen in the “mum picking up the kids from soccer practise” attire. Her last fight ended horrifically, as MacFarlane dropped Castro to her knees with punches. Rather than step aside and let the referee call the obviously over bout, MacFarlane landed on last Murder Punch, putting Castro away for good. It legitimately looks like she came to watch the fights with her boyfriend, and suddenly decided she thought she could do it. That was some Mortal Kombat fatality sh*t.
To play rugby competitively, you have to be one extremely tough athlete. A Lindenwood Women’s player proved that to be the case, and then some, during a recent match. Not only was she able to able to fight through the pain and get back to her feet, but she managed to make a crunching tackle before leaving the game. Apparently she actually came back on the field in the 2nd half. Respect.

I don’t know if this is kayaking or more like plummeting water torture punishment. Because though I see a kayak and a paddle and a human, the first person GoPro footage is just pure chaos that alternates between your worst nightmares of drowning and your worst nightmares of falling. Mad respect homie.
