Last weeks run of swell (in Mex) is one I won’t soon forget. In fact I’m still feeling this one. -Cory
Word from the boys down in Mex is that the swell is here, “it’s massive, building and peaks tomorrow.” Here are a couple frames, one of Brett Barely and one of Cory Lopez, Nicola Lugo took from the ski this morning. The craziness has only begun.
“After a week of playing around in the smaller stuff, it was nice to wake up to this.” -Cory Lopez
When your dad is a pro surfer, catching your first wave is right up there with saying your first word.
That’s the case for Cory Lopez and his daughter Alana. The duo are seen catching waves on Oahu’s North Shore in the video above, which was filmed in 2012 but recently went viral. Alana, who was two-years-old at the time, rides piggyback while her dad expertly maneuvers through the water. Not surprisingly, they both look to be having the time of their lives.
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 19 March, 2015 – Caribbean Islands – At a rare slabbing right hand reef deep in the Caribbean, Gulf Coaster Cory Lopez nabbed one of the best waves of the season, a sub-sea-level drainer that landed on the cover of The Surfer’s Journal.
Just a few waves after the cover shot, the goofyfoot paid the price, taking off too deep on a big one and ending up with a piece of coral sticking out of his broken ear drum.
“The Azores doing its thing!! Thanks for the shot… @dustweare

All good things come to an end and this epic team @oneill trip is officially over. Thanks for all the good times boys. We are thankful we’re all going home with all our limbs. The boss of the ocean made sure to keep us in check on more than one occasion.@RealCoryLopez
Teahupoo rarely comes to Florida, but @corylopez knows exactly where to go to get shacked senseless when a giant North Atlantic storm takes over the whole ocean. This was yesterday (2/12), with more to come. Check the site for the full #swellstory later today. (Also, stay tuned for #dispatchcaribbean — we sent a few pros down to the Caribbean along with Surfline photo editor @billywatts to take advantage of the swell and we’ll be doing daily updates over the weekend.)
