This month's winners provide two contrasting perspectives of the Atlantic winter. Natxo's rivermouth barrels should get your blood pumping, while James Parry's meandering lines are the perfect relaxant. The surfers and videographers will all receive a Nixon tide watch, while taking one significant step closer to a boat trip on the Jiwa around Northern Sumatra.

We're now heading into the final month of competition, so finish up your edits and send them to winter@magicseaweed.com.

Winners of the January Winter Session

By on

Natxo González showing what Mundaka is all about. This is why the lineup swarms with barrel hunters from every corner of the globe. The beatings, snakes and fierce lineup competition are all worth it if you luck into one of these multi-sectioned beauties.

James Parry enjoys a sparsely populated lineup at his local in Cornwall. Not a session you would normally associate with winter, but moments of calm can be much appreciated at this time of year.
