This is what happens when a five metre swell with an 18 second period surged over one of the world’s most beautiful big wave reefs.
On this historic day, John John Florence and Albee Layer were among the brave few to take on the South African beast that is Dungeons.
The wave of the day went to Albee Layer, who backdoored a cavernous section and rode out clean. “I don’t know what to say about that wave,” Layer told us “It was extremely lucky, what else is there to say about it? [laughs] I had to catch a flight right after that wave. The swell was supposed to just keep building and I’m sure it got pretty crazy.”
Featuring Twiggy Baker, John John Florence, Albee Layer, Frank Solomon, Mike Schlebach, Andy Marr, Simon Lowe and others.
It may be too late for the ASP Big Wave World Tour, but Dungeons lit up.
Conor Maguire harks towards a time when the cold and dark wraps back in and the lows deepen, spinning thick ropes of swell towards Ireland.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
