This ride, which gave my tow-in partner @lourencokatzenstein a nomination for the @wsl Big Wave Awards (Ride of the Year), is one of the heaviest and intense things I ever witnessed. He was whipped into this beast by Ramon @jetresgateportugal and, as I was doing back-up safety, I was able to watch the whole ride unfold from the (relative) comfort of my jet ski. I cannot describe what I felt when Lourenço first disappeared under what looked like a collapsing building and then re-emerged from the whitewater. All I had to do was pick-him up on the shoulder, celebrate and call it a day! | 🏄🏼♂️ @lourencokatz 🛵 @jetresgateportugal | 🎥 @mattos1510 | 📷 @alvar0fr
When the waves touch the sky! Meeting the big Samoan waves at Samoa’s O le Pūpū Puē (O.L.P.P.) National Park in Upolu, the 9th Ramsar Site in the Pacific Region. 🤗
This hiking gem some 2.5 km off the main road, winds atop the South Coast of Samoa cliffs with waves crashing into their bases. It offers a walking trail amidst the Pandanus tree rich rain-forest, opening out into a clear, lava field with beautiful sounds of crashing waves around. Guests can observe marine life, the waves and splendid views of the surroundings from several vantage points along the Coastal Walk trail. 🧡
Just posted a new episode to my website. This one is about the first time I worked up the courage to surf Puerto Escondido. Link in bio.
It’s interesting to not be there right now due to an injury that ultimately was the result of pushing myself to surf waves like this. Living is learning. But the good news is that I’m in Nicaragua instead and on my way back to an epic life in Hawaii. Regret isn’t something I’m willing to entertain. Hasta Pronto Puerto!
Had some real fun paddling this week, absolutely loved coming back to Newquay with the club! Highlight was definitely going back to Lusty Glaze today and bombing through some killer waves. My favourite trip of the year, hands down
