PADDLE OUT FOR EQUALITY
For the last week, the United States has been reacting to the death of George Floyd with protests and demonstrations for equality. And surfers have been paddling out in support of the movement across the country. Maui, Los Angeles and San Diego surfers have all turned out, and more paddle outs are planned heading into the weekend. If you want to get involved -- whether it's just you or with thousands of fellow surfers -- tap into your local community and paddle out.
TOUR REMAINS ON HOLD
And while the world paddles out, we remain on hold.
Due to the continued evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Surf League (WSL) is continuing to postpone or cancel all previously scheduled events, across all tours, and the next call will be early July. Keep it locked here for the latest developments.
GILMORE GOING FOR EIGHT
Last week the Australian Surfing Awards gave the coveted "Surfer Of The Year" honors to seven-time World Champ Stephanie Gilmore and 2020 CT rookie Jack Robinson. The big reveal came from Steph, who announced, "I would love to win eight!"
