Well it’s been over a year now since we created a little video to accompany our article about American Football vs Rugby and we are pleased to say that it has attracted over 1 million views!! Thank you folks! We especially enjoy all the comments and arguments induced by the video.
As we’re in the thick of the Rugby World Cup and the 2015-2016 NFL season, now is the perfect time to watch the video again and join the debate about which of these two sports is the more Yoggish…
Looks like YOG Hall Of Famer Kelly Slater has done it again! The 42 year old 11 time world champ has reached yet another milestone, raising the bar for all those beneath him. This time, in similar fashion to pro skater Tony Hawk and his groundbreaking 900° air, Slater has successfully landed a 540° aerial, landing backwards after 1 and a half rotations. Even more exciting, is that it was caught on film!
During a lay day at the Rip Curl Pro surfing event in Portugal, Slater hit the water with fellow pro surfers Brett Simpson and Kolohe Andino.
The trio were interviewed about the amazing feat, with Slater remaining humble as usual about the maneuver, demonstrating once again his YOGness.
At 42, I guess it just goes to show…you can teach an old dog new tricks, or in this case, a YOD (Young Older Dog).
Chilean big wave surfer and soon to be YOG Ramon Navarro (35 this year) teamed up with Red Bull on an expedition which would make most men’s testicles shrink (literally).
Red Bull is known for it’s boundary breaking promotional stunts, and their latest effort involves freezing water and savage conditions as they plop team surfer Navarro into previously unsurfed waters off the coast of Antarctica.
Hopefully Navarro thaws out before he turns YOG in October this year, as we’re excited to see what crazy Red Bull slash GoPro inspired limits he decides to push then. Stay tuned!
Kicking off a series of short videos featuring random acts of kindness is this commemoration of National Hug Day. Hopefully this series will inspire not just YOGs but everyone to get out there and make just a small gesture to help put a smile on someone else’s face…
