Monster Energy Presents a film by Tim Boydell and Reubyn Ash, documenting 3, 50 degree, dusty days at the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool in Al Ain near Dubai. In what is regarded as ‘one of the best wave pools in the world’, Reubyn Ash Had three days to see what he could do. Nestled in the foot hills of the Jebel Hafeet mountain range, the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool set the scene for 3 days of non-stop surfing in this rare and unique location.
What is truly possible when nature is set to one side and instinct is replaced with passion, determination and skill?
Tim Boydell and Monster Energy’s Reubyn Ash set about documenting their adventure into the Arabian desert with this question in mind. If actions speak louder than words then Reubyn’s surfing speaks for itself.
Reubyn Ash “one of the oddest things was losing the ‘random’ not surfing by instinct and momentary changes in the sea, it actually made surfing this wave harder!…but once you had the wave dialled in…the possibilities felt endless. I just wish I could go back for a week!”

It was claimed to be 100 feet high, although the Guinness Book of World Records has not yet confirmed the measurement (the official measurement is usually smaller than initial estimates). Nazaré has unusual conditions for making huge waves … an undersea trench narrows…Read More
Ever been out in near 50 below temperature? I recommend it. Since I am in Winnipeg to speak at a CFA conference today, and I had to eat lunch anyway, I thought — what the hell — let’s see what it is like out there. How often do you get to voluntarily go out in…Read More
While we were getting slammed with Hurricane Sandy in the NorthEast, a group of adrenalin junkies decided to head to Playa Linda and ride her dark walls. Strong side-offshore winds provided epic conditions. Hurricane Sandy Session from Oli Berlic on Vimeo. Track: Collect Call – Adventure Club Remix
