South Coast team rider Ryland Rubens has been blowing up lately. After recently returning from scoring some big waves in Hawaii he is welcomed back to California with sunny skies, light offshore wind and waist- to chest-high-plus reeling righthanders at Uppers. He managed to place 3rd in the Boys Under 14 group just behind 1 – John Mel – Newport Beach
2 – Eithan Osborne – Ventura.

Ryland has been making a lot of heats lately as well as freesurfing all over places like Nicaragua, Hawaii, and Indo.

Rip Curl Pro Portugal Delayed Due To Surf Conditions

Today, the Rip Curl Pro inPortugal has been delayed until further notice due to surf conditions at Supertubos. Without proper surf, not even the best surfers from around the world can give the proper competition we would like to see. Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said this:

  “Conditions are not up to standard this morning and we’ve called competition off for the day…We have plenty of swell on the way – the challenge will be finding the appropriate window with the conditions. We also have a significant storm on the way which may threaten the event site. We’ll see how the next few days unfold.”

 Rip Curl Pro Portugal is event number 8 out of 10 for the ASP Championship and this event is vital for naming the top surfer in the world. This competition is already close with the top 3 surfers ( Joel Parkinson, Kelly Slater, and Mick Fanning) only separated by 3200 points.

 Once the proper surf conditions are available, here is the line up for the remainder of the Rip Curl Pro:
