Mick Fanning surfs the Eisbach River wave in Munich

Three-time world champion Mick Fanning went surfing at the Eisbach River, in Munich, Germany. The Australian surfer, who is set to compete at the Quiksilver Pro France, decided to visit Germany, enjoy the legendary local river wave, and taste a few beers during the iconic Oktoberfest. The Eisbach River wave is a one-meter standing wave that breaks in cold and 40-centimeter deep waters, close to a small bridge and near the Haus der Kunst art museum.

Brazil Storm conquers Lower Trestles

Filipe Toledo and Silvana Lima have taken out the Hurley Pro and Swatch Pro at Trestles, in Southern California. The Brazilian duo defeated Jordy Smith and Keely Andrew in the iconic cobblestone surf break of Lower Trestles. Despite the small three-to-four-foot waves on offer, Toledo and Lima are a force to be reckoned with in pro surfing no matter what the conditions are like Filipe Toledo claimed the fifth Championship Tour of his still short career – he is the first male athlete to win two events this season and has definitely entered the world title discussion.

Kai Lenny wins the 2017 Puerto Escondido Challenge

Kai Lenny has taken out the 2017 Puerto Escondido Challenge, in Mexico. The Hawaiian waterman secured his first Big Wave Tour (BWT) victory in near-perfect 20-to-25 foot waves. Lenny won the bronze-rated event with a spectacular barrel in the dying minutes of the final. “I can’t believe it. I am so stoked. It was hard to get waves out there because they were just so shifty, but then the one that I had been waiting for finally came. I did a slow bottom turn, and then I knew I had it,” explained Kai Lenny.

Round 4 completed at Cloudbreak

Four surfers have confirmed their spot in the quarterfinals of the 2017 Outerknown Fiji Pro. The non-elimination round at Cloudbreak brought a few surprises, but Matt Wilkinson played a smart game in a tricky heat against Julian Wilson and Ian Gouveia. It’s clear he wants the yellow jersey. “I’ve just been free surfing and keeping busy on those lay days, but stoked to get it back on and get some fun waves. Before last year, I’d never really had a big result here. To get to that final last year was a pretty good confidence boost for me for this year,” explained Wilkinson.
