For almost two decades, Tasmanian Marti Paradisis has been at the beating heart of everything good and gnarly that has gone down at Shipsterns.

“The end goal is to be on the CT tour and make the top 5 in the world. I just know I have to work hard over the next few years to give myself the best opportunity to get in a position where that might be possible,” finished Smith. “For the moment though, I just got to take it all in, enjoy myself and not get too far ahead of myself. We’ll see what happens.”

Core Stories | Justen "JUGHEAD" Allport
We can’t think of a surfer that fits that bill better than North Shelly firefighter Justen “Jughead” Allport. For the last 20 years, Jug has put himself in some of the heaviest positions, on some of the heaviest waves in the world. He’s done it with equal measures of raw talent and recklessness while holding down a real job and raising a family. His fearless approach has seen him face some truly dangerous situations. And yet Jug always manages to scrape out of them. Sometimes hurt sure, but somehow alive. We asked Jug to talk through just a few of his closest shaves.

Shepherd's Pie | Ryan Callinan
Ryan Callinan is a 30-year-old goofy footer, O & E team rider, and current World No.10 described by Tyler Wright as “one of the nicest humans you’ll ever meet.” We caught up with Ryan at his home in Merewether a few days after he had just returned from the Jeffreys Bay Open. Despite his wife Nina having cooked a homemade shepherd's pie, R-Cal sat down to talk about his year so far, the Olympics and why 2023 has been the best year of his career so far.
South Africa's Big Wave Warm Up | Matt Bromley
Friday 5 May saw sublime conditions at Sunset Reef in Cape Town, South Africa, to usher in the Southern Hemisphere winter. The local big-wave crew would no doubt classify this a "fun" day to clear the cobwebs, but there were a few waves of consequence and even the odd barrel or two.
Something in the Walters | Dakoda & Harley
We caught up recently with both Dakoda and Harley Walters for a little chat. Harl’s was just heading out Snapper rocks, while Kodes was resting his injured ankle he sustained from a crazy corrupt flip in a recent event.
