HAWAIIAN: THE LEGEND OF EDDIE AIKAU

HAWAIIAN: THE LEGEND OF EDDIE AIKAU

Video: Taublieb Films | Sam George

Surfing Legend Tom Curren

surfings legends

In the 70’s and early 80’s Australia ruled the world of competitive surfing. America’s last surfing hero was Rolf Aurness, the 1970 world champion, who seamed to fall off of the face the earth when he dropped out of competitive surfing altogether. Aussie legends like Michael Peterson, PT, Rabbit, Cheyne and MR ruled the sport while Americans quietly watched from the sideline. That is until 1982 when Thomas Roland Curren the unassuming introvert from Santa Barbara, California appeared on the stage and single-handedly forced Australia into the back seat.

Tom Curren quickly became one of the most famous surfers in the world, a title that he would hold for nearly two decades. Born on July 3, 1964 to mother Jeanine and father Pat Curren (legendary big wave rider and surf board shaper) Tom began surfing almost as soon as he could walk. By the time Tom became a teenager his depth of wave knowledge and how to ride them was next to legendary. In the perfectly shaped point breaks around Curren’s home in Santa Barbara, Tom developed a smooth competitive style that would forever change the world of surfing.

An early 80’s California surf film, Off the Wall 2 was the first to show Curren ripping apart his native Rincon and Sandspit, quickly setting him up to tackle the big leagues. As a two-time West Coast, United States amateur champion, Tom didn’t have the need to outsmart his competitors because he could simply just out surf them. In 1983 Tom entered the pro ranks even though he was still just a gangly teenager. Continue Reading

SOURCE: Aspworldtour.com

COSTA MESA, California. — July 29, 2013 – Today Hurley will open the Hurley Pro Video Trials to the public, allowing fans to choose a wildcard surfer for the ASP World Tour event at Lower Trestles September 15-21, 2013.

The video contest will select the second of two wildcard competitors slotted for the event. The first wildcard was decided last week at the Hurley Pro Trials held at Trail 6 near San Onofre. In-form Australian Mitch Crews upset a stacked local crew for the coveted spot in fun, head-high surf.

The Top 16 contenders of the video trials were chosen from a pool of over 100 of America’s best surfers; from there, they were placed into man-on-man brackets by a judging panel including Pat O’Connell, Rob Machado and Bob Hurley.

“This whole process has been refreshing and fun,” said Hurley VP Sports Marketing Pat O’Connell. “Whoever the public chooses this week, it will be a very worthy wildcard.”
