Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 DO YOU KNOW "HIM" HIS NAME IS JESUSCHRIST did you just read this or do you fear him ? what you think or what you believe WILL NOT change this TRUTH the only thing that is going to change is your DESTINY . . . sh )) ) )

Jesus/God/the force/Tim/John, whatever you will call him leads with love not fear. It is ourselves we must fear.

This guy is Kainoa McGee and he's always out on an SUP when Pipe is big. He pulled some even bigger waves on the Oct 29th swell, solid 12ft hawaiian scale. Even with 80 guys on the peak he goes and if your in his way your screwed.

I was there that day, not quite as big as the 25th....still both SUP Hellions, and that hat, it comes off...intresting to watch him swimming around in the impact zone gathering up his hat, paddle and board.....then casually paddle back for another.

Hmmmmm...Wonder how many spongers a SUP guy could take out on a bad wipeout...or just a normal ride?...Perhaps I was too hasty in my earlier conditional critisism. :0 Just kidding SB ;)

The hat is so it will cast a shadow on his face so nobody can tell he is shitting pigeons. I must say I’m getting some very heavy Carl Orff’s “O, Fortuna” vibes when I see this image. Fair play to him though, good shot, meaty wave, nicely ridden.

love how everyone just drops the photoshop card on every good photo. just dudes that finally learn that photoshop can enhance any photo, just like you could in a darkroom, and call out PHOTOSHOP on any sweet image. what they don't realize is that it would take about 10 hours in front of the computer to even paste this dude here and make it look half legit. and im sure that there are better things for people to do, than try and impress someone with their photoshop skills.

it blows my mind how crew goes to blame photoshop when someone does in a picture a thing or two with a surfboard outside of these thinking men comfort box. if you can't do it, it doesn't mean that someone else can't. photoshop is as much a tool for photographer as a camera is, so please stop whining about ps because it's here to stay. and yes, shit like that goes down at pipe every time it pumps, get used to it and don't blame photoshop. he probably kicked out and just paddled casually back to line up, t shirt still dry and hat where it is in a picture.

These two SUP guys have great skill and deserve massive respect if they can consistantly handle this place at this size. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that board OR paddle in an inevitable wipeout! Most SUP guys I've seen here(FLA) SO FAR do NOT have much skill/control and are hazards to everyone in waist high or bigger waves at semi-crowded breaks. This will probably encourage more madness and chaos. I hope I'm wrong.
