Hurricane Colin


So a few weekes ago we got our first taste of ground swell in a long time. So of course I took my alaia out! Even got a couple cover ups. You can almost see it in the first pic, but either way it was truly an epic session and believe or not I even rode my shortboard for awhile and actually had fun again! Don't tell my alaia shaper though! It was an epic session for two reasons. First it was epic...due to the waves. And I got to surf with my old friend Brad and my sister who can be seen in the foreground trying to avoid splinters since I have no problem sliding over people who paddle in my way...apologies to the kid in Kitty Hawk who I floated over last weekend. Thanks to Ed Potter and Brendan Palmer for documenting this day!

First swell of the season...

So of course no one documented the epic back to back barrels I slid into on Saturday...

But even better was having my good friend Brad in town to witness it and lose his mind enough to where he actually paddled out on the plank. I did eventually get some waves on my thruster, but it wasn't nearly as fun.

The next morning was an epic sunrise followed by 500 people at Masonboro all frothing for the few waves that came through. Once again Julian Kehaya was on the scene and shot this beautiful photo towards the end of the morning session...
