Holy f! This is really incredible when you think about all the elements involved - the wave dynamics, the wind direction/speed, the board, and most importantly the surfer. Just amazing.
And Ryan is right on with this prediction…
Doing this trick is similar to running a sub 4 minute mile…nobody could do it for the longest time, but now that someone has done it, I’m sure you’ll start to see it quite a bit.
Either way, it’s F’n amazing (Kelly Slater has been trying this and I don’t think he’s pulled it yet) and congrats to Jordy Smith for pulling it off.
