Slotted in SWELL | Billabong Pro Tahiti The World's Best Surfers, Waves and Gear Tested at Teahupo'o
The historic and at times horrific opening rounds of the Billabong Pro Tahiti tested the mettle of the world best surfers. The boys put everything on the line, including their faith in hi-performance gear that we just so happen to carry for you to step up your game.

SWELL took a quick trip to the Billabong Merchandise & Design dept to meet the Brother-Sister team behind this radical new of tropical tee in the August SWELL Catalog
SWELL: Ryan, what’s your role in the Billabong M&D team?
RM: I’m a Senior In-House Artist for Billabong USA. Among various creative duties, I primarily design graphics and artwork for the Men’s tee shirt line, working everyday with type, illustration and graphic design. It’s always pumping and each day is a new adventure in a fast paced creative atmosphere–I love it! (more…)
A few SWELL savages “followed the Fish” to LA Hard Summer Festival and Cut Snake basically blew out our eardrums and our minds. The DJ duo has been getting after it for over 10 years, since Paul & Leigh bought a mixer to pass the times during down days on the professional surf tour.
Since hooking up with Destructo, the Cut Snake boys are on a tear through the EDM tour, rocking out in these SWELL summer styles.
Last good flogging your took in the water
Teahupoo last summer, swimming with my Red Housing. i swam into the bowl and lined up perfectly with Kelly Slater. the next one broke way too far out, so i braced for impact over my 20 pound aluminum housing. i got absolutely destroyed.
