Back in 2008, DANGVU MEDIA’s Matt Wybenga was part of the first of several crews that went behind the red curtain of China to see the mythical Qiantang River Tidal Bore, or soon to be called “The Silver Dragon”. Well he was invited back by the Chinese government with a new crew of surfers, Endless Summer II star, Robert “Wingnut” Weaver, Mary Osbourne, phenom skater Curren Caples and a few others riding the solid 25mph tide push. Until surfers realized the potential of the tidal bore, it was just a navigational nightmare, but with the tight grip loosening with China’s Communism, I’m sure there will be some great images when it gets up to 15ft…As for now, sit back and enjoy the Silver Dragon doing it’s thing!

On a small day one of the hardest things to do is get speed off these little dribblers, but Petey Mussio can do some pretty crazy things. Here he is punting a massive air reverse on a thigh high wave at 2nd Point Malibu. Even on cloudy days, there’s a little silver lining 🙂
With the ASP Dream Tour just about ready to kick off in the Gold Coast, DANGVU Media’s Matt Wybenga showcases a wrap up clip called “Spot Checkin Rocky Point and Off the Wall” from the 7-Mile Miracle called The North Shore on ESPN.com. Have a look at some great surfing on the rock!
On an early morning swim, eventually you’ll be hit by a watery freight train. If you time it right, it’s totally worth the view!
Pascal Stansfield probably has some of the most natural talent in the LA area. I’ve seen him after a big night of Hollyweirdness paddle out in a daze, only to do things that would take years of attempts to pull off. This morning, he was just getting a few before work at his company Freedom Artist but still sticking a perfect little alley-oop.
2009 ASP Longboard World Champ Harley Ingleby is probably one of the most unknown world champion you have ever heard of, but for those who know better, you have seen his ability to ride any type of board. And ride them really well I might add. Watch him go through a myriad of surfboard types, from the finless planks know as the alayas, to multiple version of the shortboard, then back on the logs and high performance longboards. To be honest, what can’t he ride?!?
I spent this afternoon shooting a local Malibu grom, Riley Garrison, 15 years old at 3rd Point Malibu. The weather was a cold 52 degrees and the water was just about the same, needless to say Riley has been surfing really smooth lately and it’s good to see the local kids putting it together. He’s currently sponsored by DVS and Matix Clothing.
