Brooke Thabit - WaveJetting with Cory Lopez
The Brooke Thabit Story...
Brooke Thabit, charged with energy, life and intelligence developed a love for the ocean, diving and, in particular, surfing. On Labor Day 2012, Brooke was hanging out with some friends on a dock just kidding around. Being an avid water-person, she launched a dive into the water. What she didn't realize is that the turbid water was only knee deep. Brooke struck bottom, fractured her neck and immediately suffered paralysis. She underwent emergency surgery and has been progressing slowly with limited restoration of sensation and movement in her lower extremities since then.... Learn more of her journey...
"Brook Thabit is a amazing girl who I was honored to be able to share a few waves with on a WaveJet surfboard. This was her first time back in the water since her accident so we were all a little nervous, how it was going to go. It went really well and we both had a blast. There were some close calls but we somehow managed not to have any wipe outs. It was a great day!" -Cory Lopez
Log-on to Brooke's website for her complete story and to see how you can support Brooke on her road to recovery... http://www.brookethabit.com/

Surfing Exhibition @ Munich International Airport Stationary Wave Pool
Had a blast surfing this thing last week. Local boys were ripping! We gave them our best. next year it's on! @noahbeschen @kalanirobb @shanebeschen @rockstarenergy @teamoneill @wavejet @onamissionsurf @freestyle_watch
What's New for Cory...? Following the U.S. Open and a quick stop-over at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Park City, Utah to do some flat water demos with WaveJet; Cory flew to Munich Germany to participate in a surfing comp at the Munich International Airport.... in Germany...?! Heard that one right...!
Following Rob Machado's appearance in May, Cory accepted an invitation to participate in a promotional surfing exhibition at the "landlocked" 2013 European Championships in Stationary Wave Riding. He joined fellow American surfers, Kalani Robb, Shane Beschen (and Shane's son Noah) at the Munich Airport for the 3rd annual exhibition/comp, held on August 10th & 11th, 2013. They surfed a few rounds of comp style heats in the Infinity Wave Carve Machine; a revolutionary stationary wave presented by Surf Lagoon, Inc. Munich is also home to the famed Eisbach River Wave (Inland Europe's most sought after naturally occurring 'stationary wave').
Well, it's not Teahupoo, but this stationary wave technology (unlike the "similar" Flow Rider') allows a rider to use a real surfboard (with fins & rails). Word has it that for next year's comp, the wave will be 'scaled-up' to produce a barrel for riders to show off their "tube riding" skills. Look for Cory to find a barrel, even in landlocked Germany...!
Cory Lopez - Two page spread & interview at Skeleton Bay, Africa (“The 100 Greatest Waves Ever Ridden”) in the August 2013 issue of SURFER Magazine. Many surf fans will know Cory Lopez for his pioneering efforts riding (previously thought) "un-makeable" barrels at Tahiti's infamous Teahupoo. However in the August 2013 edition of Surfer Magazine (The BIG Issue), Cory is heralded for another tube riding first; the Discovery of the "mile long" left at Skeleton Bay, West Africa during the Google Earth Discovery Contest 2008/09. In addition to Cory's two previous Surfer Mag 'Guts for Glory' Awards, for his tube riding exploits at Teahupoo ('99 & '03); he won Surfer's Tube of the Year Award in 2009 for his first ride ever on this wave, logging a record of nearly one minute of tube time.
Cory Lopez - Post US Open Quiver by Mayhem "Ready to go get Barreled"!
U.S. open was the same as it ever was, crazy,crowded and fun. Now it's time to find a storm and go get
barreled. Quiver is looking good. Thanks @mayhemb3_mattbiolos @teamoneill @rockstarenergy

"We couldn't be more excited to have Cory come to our camp and see what we are doing! He is an inspiration to so many Florida surfers and to grommets all over the world!"; said Camp Director and co-founder John Bowman. John co-founded the surf camp with Kris Cox from Cox Chevrolet & Mazda, Ryan Bodie and a few other friends in 2008. It has since grown to be one of the largest summer surf camps on the Gulf Coast of Florida and the World! Cory said he is "stoked to come mix it up with the kids" and might have a few posters on hand to sign. The 'Eternal Summer' surf campers might even have an opportunity to catch a ride with Cory on one of his WaveJet "jet powered" surfboards... Conditions permitting.
About Cory Lopez
Cory, along with brothers Shea and Matt hail from Florida's "West Coast" and grew-up surfing the Gulf Beaches from the Lopez home base in Indian Rocks Beach to the beaches of Anna Maria Island and points south. With frequent trips to Florida's East Coast and later to California, Hawaii and the nearby Caribbean; Cory and Shea quickly grew to become two of the most formidable competitive surfing talents statewide. The fires of their surfing enthusiasm stoked by an avid surfing father (Pete Lopez); both brothers quickly translated their skills to the world stage, becoming consistent finishers and top 10 rated surfers on the ASP World Tour. Cory has been ranked as high as #1, with a final season best rating of #3 in the world. Both brothers (Cory & Shea) have each won the U.S. Open of Surfing and earned 3 consecutive ESPN X Games Gold Medals. For more on Cory log-on to: http://www.lopezbrothers.com/cory/
About The Eternal Summer Surf Camp (ESSC)
The Eternal Summer Surf Camp was founded in 2008 by a few local surfers who wanted to make a contemporary (non dogmatic), Christian based experience relevant through the instruction of surfing and a healthy exposure to the beach lifestyle/ocean environment. ESSC is free to all kids and the program is funded by private sponsors within the communities where the camps are based. The camp runs 6 weeks every Sunday afternoon from 2-4, then concludes with an awards banquet where "positive, affirming" recognition is given to the kids, volunteers and sponsors. The Eternal Summer Surf Camp has approximately 2,000 "campers" enrolled on it's current summer roster. The camp is independently run and is not directly affiliated with any church or organization.
