Another shot from Hossegor by OneMoreFoto. This time it’s Matt Meola during the Airborn contest that was run parallel to the regular WSL one. I think he won the “Go for it” award (or something like that) for crazy shore break attempts like that.
With my weird way of watching surf contests (on demand, at my convenience), I’m still watching Teahupoo instead (awesome conditions!). This is Gabriel Medina flying out of a massive wave into the channel. His board was destined to hit Strider Wasilesky on the head, but he somehow figured it out and found the perfect time to pull on his leash mid air and just barely avoid the accident. I watched the reply in disbelief about 20 times. Hope Strider bought him a beer or two…
3am significant buoy readings
1.7ft @ 12s from 267° (W)
South Pacific has a fetch by the artic sheet. I circled it in yellow because I don’t know how the great rays are down there, but it’s such a deep low that it should have some fetch oriented towards us.
