What to do in between heats in Australia??? Well if you are Balaram Stack you go and boardslide a 9 stair rail, nail it, and high five your friends. Most surf cats couldn’t even ollie the set while Balaram handles it in two tries.
We recently added Dax and Finn McGill to the Sector 9 family. These two are full on surf-skaters, and growing up on the North Shore you can bet we will see many more great things from them. Big welcome to the whole McGill family!

Yup, Bal and Geisels took a trip to lovely Costa Rica where they did nothing but surf all day. Check Balaram charging a left reef and Eric busting airs on every wave. It will make you want to drop everything and go on a surf trip!
Claire charges Pipe, does mean laybacks, and has some serious skills on the skateboards. Currently she is in West Oz growing kale, surfing empty line ups, and teaching kids to shred. We love this girl!
Closing out Off The Wall with a couple corners, perfect for Gavin Beschen.

As surf tourism makes its way into new communities around the world, it brings about social change that can be positive if managed correctly. Kyle Thiermann of Surfing for Change made it a personal mission to go to Nicaragua and investigate exactly this.
