7 Days with Seabass

9/23/08

If you haven't already, you should definitely check out the new Surfing Magazine. It is the November issue and has Dane Reynolds on the cover.

This month Surfing decided to do their 7 Days feature on Seabass (Starts on page 116). Lots of good background info on Seabass and plenty of good photos, including a massive backside air sequence.

Other notable aspects of the mag include a two page Alpine Stars Ad with Jesse Heilman doing a Kerrupt Flip (Page 46), a one page Futures Ad with Seabass (Page 91), and a one page interview with Ricky Whitlock's girlfriend (Page 94).

You can check out some of the mag's features on Surfing's website at: http://www.surfingthemag.com/

Sea Bass takes over Trifecta Pro Jr. Lead

9/22/08

Sea Bass may not have made the final last weekend for the Oakley Newport Beach Pro but he was able to take over the Macy's Trifecta Surf Series Pro Jr. Ratings. His semi-final (equal 7th) showing was enough to put him ahead of Dillon Perillo and Jason Harris, rated 2nd and 3rd respectively.

The only contest remaining is the O'neill Cold Water Classic in Santa Cruz. Look out for Sea Bass to have a solid showing and come away with the title.

Gabe eliminates Fanning at Quicksilver Pro!

9/20/08

Reigning ASP World Champion and current World No. 5 Mick Fanning (AUS) came into the Quiksilver Pro France as the defending event champion – he will leave with his second 33rd place result of the year. Fanning was beaten by less than a point by injury replacement surfer and former Top 45 surfer Gabe Kling (USA) in shifty conditions.

“Mick has been one of my favorite surfers and I can’t really believe that happened,” Kling said. “It was so hard out there and him needing that small of score… I just got lucky but I’ll take it. I’m stoked to win though, he’s a reigning world champion.”

Gabe snags pts in Spain, looks on to Brazil

9/16/08

The European leg of the WQS tour has come and gone and now Gabe Kling sits in 23rd place, well within striking distance of making the 2009 WCT. Going into the Brazilian leg, Gabe is looking to drop his two lowest scores of 700 and 875 in order to jump in the rankings. There are three 6 Star 'QS in Brazil all within a few weeks of each other. Gabe has always had a fondness for Brazil and placed 2nd earlier this year there. We look forward to seeing Gabe come away with a few more solid results going into Hawaii. Good Luck Gabe!

Surfline feature on Seabass

Check out the pics and videos about Seabass on Surfline.com . Great story and interview!!!

Gabe Kling update!

9/13/08

Gabe Kling (photo) continued his roll at the WQS 5*Rip Curl Pro in Zarautz, Spain. Solid storm surf swell pumped 4-6ft. walls onto Zarautz Beach with rights being the dominant direction. That suited Kling just fine as he posted scores in the 8 and 6 range to win his 3rd heat in a row and advance into the round of 16. Tomorrow will be the final day, as they will surf all the way down to the final. Kling will face DVS teammate Luke Dorrington in a man-on-man show down that will see the winner move onto the quarterfinals. The contest starts around 11pm West Coast of America time so, if you don't have a late one tonight then check back here tomorrow for results.
