Today we had a nice sneaker swell come in. I say “sneaker swell”, because it was only forecasted to have sets in the 7ft range, but because of the 16 second period, the peak set waves seemed much larger. We couldn’t get the boat to the reef to shoot from, but Erin posted up on the hill and scored some great images for you guys to check out. The conditions were perfect and we had a great time rushing some big ones. I was having a tough time finding a barrel to pull into, but then I finally found one. Unfortunately, when I came out of the tube, I was on top of a double up and there was nothing but five feet of air under my board. I ending up falling on to my back and getting a major whip lash beat down. I came up seeing stars and partially blacking out. Luckily, all I ended up with was a sore neck! The other shots are of Brodie, Robert, and Oliver.

This is the second edition from the big day. After surfing Outer Reef, we headed over to one of our favorite beach breaks to find it macking. Also to our surprise Cory Lopez, Chris Ward, and Alek Parker were already out getting some great waves. Luckily we had Erin with us to capture the images for you guys to enjoy! We threw in shots of those guys, myself, Brodie, and Tim, who lost his leg in a car accident and still charges harder than guys with two legs!!
