YAGO DORA MENTAWAIS 2017
The name Yago Dora should be starting to sound familiar. After his tear at the Oi Rio Pro in May, he's gained a lot of well-deserved attention from the surfing world and through WSL where he was awarded a Wild Card into the Outerknown Fiji Pro, a prestigious World Tour stop which gave him the chance to showcase his talents on the big stage. In addition, with his recent win at the Azores Airlines Pro, a 6,000-rated QS event, Brazilian Yago Dora continues to move one step closer to qualifying for the elite 2018 Championship Tour. But free surfing might be what Yago is known for best. Constantly impressing his fans with new edits, Yago displays a high-flying and innovative bag of tricks. Huge air rotations, creative grabs, and over-the-lip surfing, complemented with a strong rail game, shows that Yago's agile and light-footed surfing can go head-to-head with the world's best. This edit is a great balance of Yago's surfing: innovation airs, lightening-quick turns, and intense, shallow reef tubes will keep your eyes glued to the screen from start to finish. This trip for Yago was special. Not just because of the epic waves he scored, but because he had a solid crew of family and friends with him. Yago explains: "IT WAS A FAMILY VIBE KIND OF TRIP. I HAD MY DAD, LEANDRO DORA, PEDRO BARROS AND HIS DAD ANDRÉ, AND LÉO KAKINHO WHO IS ALSO A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF OURS AND A LEGEND IN THE SKATEBOARDING SCENE IN BRAZIL." The trip consisted of nine days on the Macaronis Resort with his friends and family, a comfortable and popular resort for surfers from around the world. Scoring the elusive Green Bush for his very first time, Yago was ecstatic, bagging multiple tubes and some heavy wipeouts along the way. While having had fun sessions at both Macas and Roxies, Yago was quick to say Green Bush was his favorite spot. Watch the edit above to see all the action! Keep up with Yago's latest happenings on his Instagram: @yagodora as he continues his quest for the Championship Tour. Photo: Tom Carey

Not Your Average Wipeouts - Excerpts From “The Dock”
Not everyday you’re going to watch a wipeout video like this. Sure, sports have their varied crash and burns, errors and fails, but when it comes to surfing, there’s only a few things that could go wrong. Although, when you’re dealing with this unusual stunt that was put together by Stab and Volcom, you’re going to get all sorts of wipeouts and fails, none of which has been experienced by any surfer until now. It was both parts thrilling and dangerous to attempt what these guys conquered. Anchoring a 100-foot floating dock in the middle of a surf break to ease the entry into riding a wave seemed questionable. The dock ripped from its anchor a couple times and trampled its way to the shore. The surfers slipped off its wet surface countless times. Some misjudged its location in the lineup and had to jump to safety, and others had to duck and cover as the dock whipped around like a snake when the waves started breaking. Was it worth it? Of course it was. Would we do it again? Of course we would. It’s all part of the experience of going out on a limb and trying something new. Something that hasn’t been done before to give the people something worth viewing. The Dock was a memorable event, and we couldn't have done it without Stab. Special thanks also goes out to our team riders who joined us in this venture, and the entire production crew who made it all possible. WATCH 'THE DOCK Noa Deane (left) using an alternate route to safety, while photographer Tom Carey is caught mid-strategy in his attempt for cover. Imai Devault negotiating his way up the ramp between Yago Dora and Balaram Stack. Ozzie Wright sits in the far distance with time to spare. Balaram had a long run at this thing. Unfortunately, he ended up slipping right at the end and gave Yago a front row seat to a good laugh. Ozzie Wright, miscalculating. Mitch Coleborn didn't anticipate this wave breaking out that far. Clearly. Yago taking a leap of faith off the dock to safety. Balaram attempting a successful run at the right, while Noa looks to the left to make sure he's good to go. What does one do in a situation like this? Understandably, the dudes jump off the dock, trying to get as far away from it as possible in hopes it doesn't whip around and tag them.

A Floating Dock In The Middle Of A Surf Break - “The Dock”
“The Dock” is an exemplary piece of outlandish and strange antics we sometimes chase. It’s not that we want to… we have to. Breaking up the monotony of your daily videos cycling your feed to provide something different. Something we felt the need to do. What is The Dock? A 100-foot floating dock that we put in the middle of a surf break and invited a select crew to try out: Noa Deane, Balaram Stack, Ozzie Wright, Mitch Coleborn, Yago Dora, and Imai Devault. Sound enticing or ridiculous? Probably both. From the video you can see how sketchy the execution was, but the preparation was just as strenuous. The danger involved was also on everyone’s minds as the set up began. “It would just kill you if it hit you, yeah?” said Noa. The wires, the ropes, the waves, the unpredictability of the anchor were all threatening variables. Ozzie recalls, “The Dock’s been scary. At one stage I just came up, got my board, and saw it coming right at me. But I like the chaos of it.” What was once a long and arduous journey has finally come to fruition. And we’re truly passionate about. We hope you enjoy! Standing on a floating dock with an 8ft wave approaching can be a little frightening! Dock Lobster, Rattle Snake, Grey Mamba... call it what you want, this thing can be ANGRY! "Sittin on a dock in the line up, waisting time." The guys were psyching and splitting peaks.. Here's Imai with no option but straight! “I WAS KINDA JUST STUCK AND WASN'T SURE WHAT TO DO BECAUSE NOA WAS GOING RIGHT AND YAGO LEFT, AND I WAS JUST STUCK IN THE MIDDLE. SO, I THOUGHT I COULD TRY TO OUTRUN THE THING TO THE END AND JUST JUMP OFF AND GO STRAIGHT, BUT THE WAVE CAUGHT UP TO ME AND KNOCKED ME RIGHT OFF MY FEET. I SLID FOR WHAT FELT LIKE FOREVER HAHA, BUT IT WAS PROBABLY EQUAL TO LIKE 10 FEET, BUT I HAVE NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD I THINK EVER!” -IMAI Noa Deane was doing things no one has ever done before. Backside tail tap on the dock! Imai decided to take a dip! Balaram had his fair share of spills! See video for his wipeout. “THE DOCK WAS ONE OF THOSE NOVELTY THINGS THAT YOU DREAM ABOUT. IT WAS LIKE THE ROCK JUMP IN ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY SIX TRICKS THAT I WATCHED OZZIE DO A THOUSAND TIMES.... JUST A MAN-MADE VERSION.” -BALARAM Smiles all around! The guys claimed this to be one of the funnest thing they've ever done. L to R: Willy Aliotta, Yago Dora, Noa Deane, Balaram Stack, Ozzie Wright, Imai Devault. Yago Dora flew in straight from the Fiji Pro for just one day and didn't waste any time, he was going bonkers! It was really crowded on that dock! Yago is wearing the Macaw Mod Boardshorts. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! Balaram doing some sort warm-up stretch?! "BALARAM JUMPED UP AND WENT SIX FEET IN THE AIR THEN LANDED ON THE WIRE, SO SKETCHY! IT WHIPS RIGHT AT THE END BECAUSE IT’S CONNECTED TO A CABLE WHICH ADDS EXTRA TENSION.” -NOA Ozzie showing off his bag of 156 Tricks! From land it looked like they were walking on water. It was surreal. We lucked out and scored this peak for days straight with not a sole in sight. Ozzie being Ozzie and taking things to the next level! “THE DOCK WAS ANGRY! IT WANTED TO GET US, BUT WE WERE TOO QUICK! IT WAS A CLASSIC RUMBLE TRYING TO HUSTLE OUR WAY ON THERE ALTOGETHER.” -OZZIE The Dock is fun and really sketchy at the same time. After all, what’s fun without a little fear?! Here, Mitch Coleborn tries to escape disaster.

Yago Dora Defeats Three World Champs At The Oi Rio Pro In Brazil!
Yago Dora, entering the 2017 Oi Rio Pro in Brazil as a wildcard, eliminated the 2013, 2014 and 2016 World Champs, Mick Fanning, Gabriel Medina, John John Florence respectively, on his way to the semifinals where he eventually fell short to another World Champ (2015) and fellow Brazilian, Adriano de Souza. After qualifying into this event by winning the contest's Trials (preliminaries), Yago had an amazing run, bagging excellent scores and huge air rotations on his way to the semis where he faced-off with Adriano. Yago was unfortunately left searching for a backup score to Adriano's impressive two-wave total as time ran out, which put Adriano into the finals where he ended up narrowly defeating Adrian Buchan. In an interesting coincidence, Adriano just happens to be staying with Yago and his father Leandro Dora, who coaches them both. Yago currently sits 3rd on the Qualifying Tour and has his sights set on the World Tour. With his impressive ranking and string of recent notable contest finishes, Yago, more widely known for his free surfing, video parts and air game, is suddenly on a lot more people's radars after today. For more Yago, be sure to check him out in Volcom's 2015 feature film, Psychic Migrations (stream the film free on Red Bull TV) and his most recent edit entitled Young Souls & Old Dreams. How's Yago handling the pressure? The man with the nickname "Skinny Goat" says he's comfortable juggling between the QS and free surfing, gaining confidence with every heat. With a wide variety of tricks and growing momentum, Yago's shot at qualifying for the World Tour looks good and if he does, he'll surely make his presence known!

A Candid Photo Journal: Puerto Rico W/ Noa, Yago, Droid, Mauro
Puerto Rico has been an increasingly popular destination for surfers around the world ever since the 1968 World Surfing Championships were held there, and for good reason. Along with the hundreds of reefs, points and tropical beaches, favorable winds to the north, and crystalline blue water, its diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisines make this Caribbean island a favorite among many. As a surfer, you're focusing most on the waves. But what other advantages does Puerto Rico have? Crowds? Those are ubiquitous these days, so we can throw that out. Hazards? There are always a couple. But when you go down the list of notable spots, from Parking Lots to Maria's to Los Tubos to Middles to Aviones (the list goes on), you're sure to score some waves any season you visit. Right? Wrong. Maybe that's right, but not for Noa Deane, Yago Dora, Andrew Doheny, and Mauro Diaz. Noa, Yago, and Andrew recently travelled to Puerto Rico to meet up with Mauro (who lives in PR) and Richie Olivares (Volcom's Global Surf Team Manager) to try and score some clips for a new edit. After driving around a ton searching for waves, taking a mini jet to a neighboring island, and returning to the same fruitless conditions, the boys needed to shift their focus. And they did. When you have a diverse group like this, you are never bored. From Noa's 'welcome to the team' surprise, to the sharpie incidents, to the Pelican Man, there was no shortage of memorable times. See below for a Q&A from the guys, along with a selection of behind-the-scenes and lifestyle film photos from photographers Tom Carey and Scott Stinnett. WEIRD? Meeting the Pelican Man, who literally could talk to the pelicans and tell them what to do, seriously. I guess he was featured on the National Geographic cover once. He would rescue wounded pelicans and by the time we met him he had a full flock under his wing. CREW? Droid and Noa were inseparable the whole trip, constantly making music, writing songs, playing guitar. While Yago would just quietly eat his candy and then boost eight foot airs. Mauro was just soaking it all in and was stoked to be there. FOOD? Meal of the trip was Pinchos? Peenchos? I dunno how to spell or pronounce it, but it's basically sketchy 'chicken' on a stick and sold on the side of the road. DRINK? Drink of the trip was Pina Coladas! So many Pina Coladas. FAVORITE? Favorite moment of the trip was when everyone conspired to welcome Noa to the team by smashing a pie in his face. So while Noa, unknowingly, jammed out on his guitar, Yago snuck up behind him with a pie and smashed it in his face! I think Richie yelled "welcome to the team, grom!" and then Noa smeared more of it all over his face and started chugging whip cream while everyone cheered. It was great. SHARPIE? If you fell asleep early enough, Noa and Droid would hunt you down with a sharpie and vandalize your face. I think Nate Leal got the worst of it. SURF? It was full moon when we were in Tortola and the main spot we surfed the whole trip was in front of a shanty bar called Bombas, which was literally held together by string and beach wood and halfway underwater already. It looked like a big enough wave would knock the whole thing down. They had a legendary party on the night of the full moon and they were serving some beverages that made us hallucinate. It was wild!   BELOW PHOTOS: TOM CAREY CAMERA: CANON AF35M & DISPOSABLE Cheers, mon! Yago, Noa, and Droid taking down some Red Stripes pre-flight. Beer of choice for El Caribe. Droid loves to sleep. Is he sleeping here? Here's Noa wondering the same thing. Small planes are convenient (and sketchy) when you need to jump from island-to-island to search for waves. Grid-locked! You can bet on Yago to always be prepared for a surf. We also discovered he always has extra fin keys. Good man to bring on a trip! Tradewinds in Puerto Rico can sometimes make for chilly weather. But Tradewinds or not, sunny or cloudy, Noa is always rockin' his favourite jeans. Mauro Dora and Yago Diaz?! Surf trips sound so fun, right? Especially to places far from home, and they are. But, people forget it's full of multiple airports, long car rides, lack of sleep, and sometimes getting skunked on waves. Here's Droid at the culmination of it all. Noa trying to make the car rides a little more entertaining for the group. After flying-high all week, Yago indulges on a couple glasses of vino on his last night of the trip. Nate Leal and Scott Stinnett (background left & right), are the go-to filmers for the Volcom Surf Team. These dudes are always on it! What we can take away from this photo is that more sunscreen was needed! Yago channeling some Tony Alva? Scott Stinnett. Cops are always on the lookout. "Yeah, it's a bit windy, but..." Sleeper boy. Noa knocked out from rocking too hard and drinking too much water. Droid's bringing back the classic Black Fly's look. Y'all been to Pusser's? Phone rings... "It's Ozzie! Oh, snap, my rent's due!" House view. Droid sometimes sleeps with his eyes open. It's creepy, but pretty funny! Yes, airports are full of freaks! The name of this airplane is quite accurate. Whatever you do, don't look down! Scared, psyched, confused, or all the above? Touchdown! This place ruled. Yago always packing the late night snacks. This dude loves chocolate. Droid rockin' the Mag Vibes Stoneys and Yago rockin' the Macaw Mods! Mauro Diaz is always Gozando! (Having a good time.) Noa greeting the Shark's Cove of the Caribbean! Why did we have a fart machine? Who knows. But when you play this thing through a mini amp, it will have you in tears. This literally went on for a couple hours... Nate, bummed his phone broke and couldn't Tinder. The pie in the face wasn't enough, and Noa wanted more! Noa making Richie and Droid some tasty treats. Egg in hole? Egg in basket? Whatever it was, it ruled. Noa loves to prank people, and here is proof! So, don't fall asleep before him. Looks like Tom Carey didn't get the message. Checking emails? On Instagram? Whatever, it's too late for photos. Noa's first boards with the Stone! Yes, Droid sleeps with his guitar, day and night. BELOW PHOTOS: SCOTT STINNETT CAMERAS: YASHICA T4 AND WIDELUX Boarding the mini jet. Yago's candy stash. Airport lobby jam sash with Droid and Noa. Maybe just Droid. Droid, zorched. Beers and champagne. Why not?! Seriously lost! Tom Carey trying to figure out where they are while Noa sleeps one off.   Mind surfing. We did that a lot due to the lacking of waves. Few spots had potential, and we found some fun waves, but not a ton. Everyone wants a photo with Droid. Mauro Diaz. Checking this spot called Middles, which had a couple waves on offer. Yago Dora.   This is Tortola. And it's an amazing place to visit. Free samples of Pina Coladas on the house! Noa and Droid. This was the last night in Puerto Rico. Full crew! These rocks were super sharp, but made for some cool, Mars-lookin' landscape. Droid and Noa taking in the amazing view we had. What a way to wake up. Droid.   Yago, the pelican whisperer. OK, Noa is a pelican whisperer, too. Yago, Noa, Droid, trying to write some songs in the lobby. You can see Droid here has taken a new approach to the word "downtime." Downtime again with Droid. Cool path we found to some waves! Droid resting his eyes. Droid jam session.   Droid sleep session.   Yago with somewhat of a swan dive.   Noa and Droid hanging out on the porch of our spot. The Pelican Man hooked us up with some free lessons on how to care for them and feed them. It was actually pretty cool, and Noa and Yago turned out to be experts at the trade. Sincerely, yours truly. So sick. Found a dude who was driving this and asked if we could take some pictures with it. He was stoked, and more than willing to let us do it. Thanks, man, this is rad!   Noa mid-jump, or fall, or step-off, or whatever. Not a very enthusiastic jump, but we'll take it! Buddies. Noa and Yago enjoying the Caribbean. Cool angle of Yago floating in the sea. Yago. Mauro showing us some spots. Room with a view! Yago.   See you, dudes, next time!
