Beach

Kauai may be a small island but with plenty of world class waves and a competitive vibe in the water it has become a breeding ground for some of the best surfers in the world. From the Irons brothers to Roy Powers, and now Alana Blanchard and current Vans Triple Crown Champion Sebastian Zietz. Always proud to see those around them do well, Dustin Barca, Stephen Koehne and friends weigh in on what it was like to see Sebastian Zietz take the 2012 Vans Triple Crown and what to watch out for with him on tour this year. Watch "Alana: Surfer Girl" every Monday on Network A.

Tahiti's Teahupoo has been one of big wave surfing's most revered locations for two decades, but the waves that hit the island's horseshoe reef on August 27, 2011 were unlike any that had been surfed before. Billabong's "Code Red," a new film documenting that historic day through the eyes of surfers Dylan Longbottom and Laurie Towner, features all the action, captured using the super-slow-motion Phantom camera. You've never seen surfing like this. Premieres April 25, 2012 on Network A.

The 9th Annual International Surfing Day returns this week. If you ever needed an excuse to ditch work, school or other obligations to go surfing, look no further. This "holiday" is your chance to join fellow surfers from 30 different countries in celebration of the Sport of Kings. Now go surfing!

There is an airport at Maho Beach in St. Maarten where planes fly right overhead and beach-goers cheer as planes approach the strip. Which is exactly what happened recently when a Brazilian plane approached into Princess Juliana International Airport. The landing planes there typically get pretty close to the beach, but this one was wayyy lower than normal and just barely clears the fence. Crazy to see all the people on the beach cheering to as they come pretty close to being squashed by a jumbo jet.

Plastic is not fantastic at the beach. Dose recently caught up with Jim Moriarty, Global Executive Director of the Surfrider Foundation. Moriarty explained how Surfrider is working to clean up beaches around the world. Since June 20 is International Surfing Day, it's a great time to highlight ways that surfers can help preserve the oceans where they have so much fun. One of the biggest problems is single-use plastics, so why not try and pick up one plastic bottle or bag for every wave you catch on International Surfing Day.

Surfer girls have the best travel schedules in the world, everywhere they go is a beach! Well, almost. Gorgeous Roxy Surfers Kelia Moniz and Monyca Byrne-Wickey made a rare non-beach stop in NYC this week for the launch of their new bikini collection with Diane Von Furstenberg and dropped in on dose to give Tim their top 5 favorite surf spots in the world. Grab a pen and take notes - you might just get a chance to catch one of these beauties charging waves in real life!
