c Surfing Kicking off the Australian leg of the 2014 ASP Tour, Carissa Moore and Adriano De Souza got off on the good foot with their statement-making wins at the Australian Open. Some people are just into tattoos, Australia's Chippa Wilson is one of them. As he continues to turn his body into a canvas X Games Surfing tries to find out what the motivation is. Less than a decade ago Clark Little was a plumeria farmer. Today he's one of the most visible and respected water photographers in the world, and he has a new book out. In winning the Volcom Pipeline Pro, Kelly Slater affirmed that he's the best surfer ever. The scary thing is, as the 2014 season looms, he seems to actually be getting better. In 2013 Mick Fanning won the ASP World Title, but he also went "Missing." Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the film project that took him well away from the competitive arena. With a Pacific swell peaking along the California coast, the 2013 Maverick's Invitational produced epic waves and an unforgettable competition. Over the last few weeks, every big-wave spot from Hawaii to California saw some of the best swells in recent memory, and some lucky surfers found the right spots. After starting the week surfing Jaws on Maui, then rushing Maverick's on the West Coast, Greg Long capped a 96-hour big-wave adventure with a purposeful session at Cortes Bank. On January 20, 2014, light trade winds and a solid northwest swell transformed Maui's infamous Jaws into a proving ground for progressive big-wave surfing. Late drops, deep tubes and a few hearty wipeouts all defined the day. Putting in a dominant performance at the Northern California big-wave spot, Grant "Twiggy" Baker claims his second Maverick's Invitational title. With 40-foot surf in the forecast for Jan. 24, the Maverick's Invitational will be off the charts, and the warm up sessions aren't too bad either. When a solid Northwest swell hit Maui on Jan. 19, the infamous Jaws roared to life, Albee Layer, Jamie O'brien and rest of the big-wave crew had a field day. With the opening of a new wave pool in New Hampshire, American Wave Machines is putting their money where their mouth is.
