He could have built on it 10 years ago, but he chose the Ponce Inlet area to raise his growing family, as did his brother Shea way before him. Which kinda speaks volumes, eh?

Legendary Video of Cory by Team O’Neill
What’s Cory Lopez been up to this summer?
Although, he did not catch any ’Code Red’ drainers in Tahiti this year; in-between signing posters for his sponsors at the U.S. Open, France and at the ECSC in Virginia Beach, he caught a few barrels and launched a few airs in Mexico, Costa Rica & France.
Check out the sick little vid O’Neill put together of Cory while in Costa Rica schooling the groms at O’Neill’s Summer Surf Camp.
Also, stay tuned for a sick barrel sequence coming out in Surfer Mag’s annual ‘The Big Issue’ of Cory charging in France.
As Slater says; “Cory Lopez is Legendary”. Enjoy!

Fernando De Noronha, Brazil
Well it's another year and just like last year Fernando is the first big
event of the year. The only difference is that this year feels way
different than last year. I feel like I am stuck in-between
two cross roads; do I want to compete or do I want to just free surf..?
Last year all I did was compete and while at times I had some fun, it was not nearly as rewarding or fun as my previous three years of free surfing. That could also have been
due to the fact that I had a very heart breaking mediocre year (results-wise).
I say heart breaking because I seemed to have lost every close heat last year. Between
the two lost ties in "Primes" and the two heats I some how lost on the WT, I
can see how different my year could have been. Sometimes the difference
between an early loss and a big result can make or break your whole year. So
now it's on to 2012. I'm in Brazil and I want to win in a big way. My goal is
to start the year strong so that it gives me the motivation to compete this
whole season. Come on Brazil be good to me.
(Above) This is day one of the comp. The morning free surf was really fun.
(Above) This was my first day in Fernando. And he pulled that passion pop.
At this size it reminds me a lot of a wave I grew up surfing in the gulf. Nat Young laying into a cutty.

I have been on hiatus for a bit, but I'm back. Here are a few shots I got while in Hawaii.
I stayed right at Rockies this year. It was a blast with a bunch of days just like this.
WaveJet had a party and Stevie Wonder showed up. I was more than
stoked to get a photo with him, what an honor.
While most of my time in Hawaii this year, it was small; I did get to surf
Pipe and Off The Wall one day - and there were a few good ones.
Eric Geiselman focused on a different kind of north shore bowl.
Well it's November and I'm in Hawaii again. The waves have been small for Hawaii standards, but for me I've have been having a blast! I'm staying at Rocky Point this year and I am stoked! I have already had a few good sessions out back. One thing about Rockys is it is usually crowded. Luckily for me the boys were all surfing Backdoor and Off the Wall the other day and I scored some uncrowded surf. It was a blast! These shots are from the next day when it dropped off a little bit.
This is a shot of the point at rockys. It is usually all rocks. It's kinda nice like this.

A few weeks back Shea and I were sitting on my couch watching the final day of the Portugal WCT. The guys were getting so barreled, we were losing it. Luckily for us there was some kind of subtropical storm moving over Florida that day and working its way up the coast. I really wanted to get tubed so I asked my expert surf forecaster
brother if we could find some action up the coast. The answer was yes and two hours later after sweet talking our wives into letting us go; we were in my truck and heading north on our eleven hour drive. The trip was a blast, we scored some heavy tubes for two days and headed home stoked. Here are a few shots I took...

THE LOPEZ BROTHERS ENJOY A BIT OF SOUTHEAST SWELL AT HOME
NO NAME SWELL
The no name swell was a blast. The first few days Shea and I surfed inside the New Smyrna Inlet. As that was the only place we could surf with the 30 plus mph winds we were getting. On the second day we went out right when the storm was intensifying and we got blasted. 30 minutes into our session the wind kicked into the 50 mph range. It was so gnarly driving a ski in those conditions. The rain was sideways but the surf was still super fun so we carried on for another hour or so. When we returned to the dock the storm surge had broken the boat ramp dock. And all the charter boats that were tied up looked like they had about all they could handle. The next day the wind finally backed down and we scored some surf. Here are some shots from when the swell backed down. Name or no name this storm produced some of the biggest Florida surf I have ever seen.
