Two weeks of Cloudbreak
Amazing to see this place in its different facets over two weeks – dead flat, softly shoulder-high, peaky and blown out, an offshore 8ft at 16 seconds, glassy and perfect 8-10ft stand-up barrels, and maxing out at 15ft+. Any of those days could have given you a thrashing one way or another, whether the reef wanted to greet you, the sea lice wanted a taste test, or the waves wanted to put you through a heavy loaded wash cycle. Regardless, it wasn’t too difficult to score, though maybe it seemed that way because 90% of the crowd was pro’s.
Below is a mix of water shots and a few from the boat, before, during, and after the comp days. There was SO much coverage of this event, I figure it would be more interesting to show a few highlights and sense of place, than dive into the department of redundancy.
