When I was watching this guy, it was a trip to notice his style. It’s fact that he got 3 to 1 on rides compared to the other surfers that were in the water at the same time. (absolutely no debate on this 🙂 If I remember 5 or 6 people were still out on Johnson Avenue this day. (Maybe 11 AM ish) But he was all about knowing the wave he was on. On this sequence of 5 shots, when he dropped in, late…..on the wave, he went right back up to the lip instead of the normal bottom or mid-turn to try and pump the wall to outrun the lip.
But he used the lip to gain momentum, instead of the bottom white water, and this wave that would probably close-out on most surfers, he managed to make it a user friendly wall 🙂
It was a great day at Johnson and close to the best surf I’ve seen in years in Satellite here:
Upcoming Surf !!!…….Maybeeeee, Saturday will give us glass, and something between waist and chest high waves with offshore winds. But, it is 4 days out, but at least the models are giving us a possible offshore day, and may even include some on Sunday, but with heavier
winds. This low could speed up or slow down, but it looks like a great chance of some size and offshores between Friday and Sunday.
In the mean time, it has given us some nice 4 to 6 foot face since Monday, semi-clean chop at times, like this morning, though smaller, it was very fun.
