Sunny Coasts own Julian Wilson has taken out the U.S Open This morning our time, Against Miguel Pupo from Brazil! In a fairly high Scoring final, Julian Led from the start & bought it home for his maiden major win this year. I was starting to wonder just recently when we would see Julian back in the winners circle. We here at TWS are stoked for J dub who hopefully will carry this momentum into the rest of they Year on the World Tour, where he is yet to have a win but has filled every other position.
If you are in Hollywood this weekend, or near there for the US open, check out this after party at Drai's at the W hotel rooftop.
Paul Fisher & Leigh Sedley (Cut snake) will be holding down the decks poolside. Gonna be pretty nutso!!

Current ASP world number three surfer, Joel Parkinson (31, Coolangatta) is preparing to fly to Hawaii to contest the annual Molokai To Oahu Paddleboard World Championships this Sunday, July 29.
With surfing’s ASP World Tour in the middle of a scheduled six-week break, Parkinson seized the opportunity to live out a long-held dream and compete in the prestigious race, which sees competitors paddle 32 miles across the “Channel of Bones” between the Hawaiian islands of Molokai and Oahu.
If you find yourself within a mile of the Huntington Beach Pier in the next week you’ll bear witness to hundreds of thousands of scantily clad youth at surfing’s spectacle of the year. Festivities carry on throughout the day, but it’s after the last autographs have been signed that the real trouble begins. For some, this is easy to avoid. Fine southern gentlemen, like the Hobgoods, have gained an advantage in many early-morning heats here, fresh off eight perfect hours of sleep.
A big congratulations needs to go to tradewindsurf partner Leigh Sedley after he is back in the winners circle following this mornings final of the Quiksilver pro in Acapulco, Sedz looked good all week & only missed out on winning the comp by one spot falling just short to Hawaii's Tanner Hendrickson.
Last year when the Code Red swell was forecast for the Billabong Pro Teahupoo, the best big-wave surfers arrived en masse and charged one of the biggest days of the year. It was a spectacle, and Billabong capitalized on the situation by keeping the cameras rolling, and subsequently marketing the footage.
Webber Wave Pools has recently introduced a new wave pool design to the world of surf parks and artificial wave technology. Their latest design is a crescent shaped wave pool that is capable of producing world class waves at a fraction of the cost of the full size circular wave pools.
The quality of the waves will be the same as any of the other Webber Wave Pool designs and will provide surfers with rides lasting up to 30 seconds. This length of ride is comparable to the maximum ride length of Wavegarden’s pool designs.
Mark "Occy" Occhilupo a former ASP World Champion,and who just recently celebrated his 46th birthday has returned to the ASP World Qualifying Series Competition and has his eyes set on this years Vans Triple Crown of Surfing .
Showing top form and reaching the semi finals at the Telstra Drug Aware Pro in Margaret River WA, Occy showed why he's still a force to reckon with, and possibly gaining some personal satisfaction knowing that maybe a possible shot at another World Title run could be on the cards if he qualifies for the 2013 WCT.
