  • Joe Surf: Kneeboarder has remarkable win after injury

    We've all heard the sports phrase "playing hurt." Huntington Beach's Tom Backer has taken it to a new level. Backer, 48, finished in second place in the open division of the 2012 Kneeboard Surfing USA Titles finals last week on the south side of the...
  • Joe Surf: Laguna's Pribram intervening in Windy City surfer arrest

    "Surfing is not a crime." That's what 11-time Assn. of Surfing Professionals champ Kelly Slater tweeted when he found out last month that 40-year-old Rex Flodstrom was arrested by Chicago police for — wait for it — surfing off the shores of...
  • Joe Surf: Balancing school and the board

    Pro surfing and school don't mix. At least not the kind of school that requires its students to show up on time, spend most of the day in a classroom and then go home and do homework into the afternoon and evening. That's why so many up-and-coming...
  • Joe Surf: Paddle out for Mongoose Cup

    It looks easy and fun, so more and more people are getting up on those big, sturdy boards. Find a spot where it is flat and get out there. Stand up and paddle. Stand-up paddleboarding is common in Huntington Harbour and other local harbors, and also at...
  • Joe Surf: Jordy Smith shows potential to be the 'next Kelly Slater'

    There's a sports blog with a video clip on Yahoo! Sports titled "Jordy Smith pulls arguably the best surfing move ever." The move is called a "rodeo flip," and it's kind of a combination of a flip and a reverse 360. I know it's a sick move because...

    The best surfers in the world will be out here starting Sunday and throughout next week as the ASP World Tour makes a stop at Trestles. But for those who prefer going old school to the shredders on short boards, there is an alternative. The Doheny...

    Joe Surf: Local surfer representing on World Junior Tour
    Oh, so close. Andrew Doheny of Newport Beach barely missed out on what would have been the biggest win of his young surfing career, losing in the final heat Tuesday at the Oakley World Pro Junior off the black sand beach in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia. As...
  • City Lights: Slater handles himself like a pro

    I got to be a celebrity once, kind of. It wasn't at Barnes & Noble or the Academy Awards or anything like that, but at Girls Inc. of Orange County. I had covered a few stories there as the Daily Pilot's education reporter, and when I arrived to write...
  • Joe Surf: He's a warrior for the water

    Joe Surf: He's a warrior for the water
    At first glance, one might see "Eco-Warrior" and think it's this summer's blockbuster with DiCaprio or Pitt or Affleck. No, it's just little ol' James Pribram trying to save the world. Don't think he can do it? Don't tell that to Maira Khan, whom...
  • Joe Surf: Newport surfer rising

    Chase Wilson, welcome to the big time. While Wilson's rise in the ranks in the Assn. of Surfing Professionals' Juniors events is no secret, he took a major step last weekend just a few miles north of his Newport Beach home in the ASP Vans Pier Classic on...
  • Joe Surf: Sea Kings back in the surf

    It stands to reason that Corona del Mar High School's surf team was resurrected out in the water, surfer to surfer, as they waited for the next set to roll in. The Sea Kings surfed Wednesday against Mater Dei in their Sea View League opener, a noteworthy...
  • Joe Surf: Senior surfers seeking bragging rights

    No, there's no truth to the rumor that Kelly Slater will compete in this Saturday's Huntington Beach Senior Surf Invitational. While Slater indeed is the old man of the ASP World Tour, he's still a young man by any other standard at age 39. The HB Senior...
