Shane Dorian, Cloudbreak, April 11, 2006. This swell happened during "The Jeff Booth Week". Boothy had this week for many years. For quite a few of those years, Mobley and Big Cat (Danny Fuller & Reef Macintosh) were part of the group, Boothy loved those nicknames he gave them. Early this morning Reef, Danny, JunJo (JunBug!), and Dorian paddled it. Barely. As the morning wore on, it just got bigger and better and too big to paddle, or no one had the right boards. And it stayed very smooth until about 2-3pm. Unfortunately, there was only one ski available, and one tow-board. And everyone was switching the straps back and forth depending on their stance. Shane towed on a CARPER 7'2" semi-gun, no straps, might have been an epoxy production he used as a reliable back-up? Watching him in the boat all day it was obvious how frustrated he was that there wasn't more skis, as there were so many unridden waves, big waves. If you look carefully, Shane is looking up at the lip on this one, as his childhood friend Conan Hayes did on the wave posted yesterday. And to top this day off, the next 4-5 days were as good as Tavarua gets; huge Rights, perfect Restaurants, very rare perfect 12' Cloudbreak. One of the best runs of epic surf that anyone had ever witnessed. Vinaka Tavarua Island and the wonderful Fijians.
