#cloudbreak 2011 this was the swell that @bruceirons got the mutant on the orange board, @deepwatersurf body surfed out of a wave of a lifetime, @ryanhipwood almost won wave of the year on a 6'6", @healeywaterops made it look like Disneyland, @happyreef76 got a cover, @mcnamara_s went foamball water sliding on an SUP, @kellyslater rode a 5'9" into the flats of doom, @davewassel had the first two wave hold down I'd ever seen, and many more.... For me it was when I fell in love with this wave. I also realized I was in elementary school on the waves I chose compared to everyone else out there, and really needed to learn how to backside tube ride! But my favorite moment was when a local photographer on the boat asked me "do you charge?" before paddling out 😭 Luckily, I have never lived that moment down with Wassel standing right next to me dying laughing. Thanks @tim_bonython 📽 for the memory.
