El Nino continues to give the Pacific the best big wave run in history and Jaws continues to give some bloody big hidings! Lucky for us mere mortals, the guys at Pure Digital Maui are on site to capture the carnage! Look out for our own Safa guys, with James Taylor and Simon “Coach” Lowe getting proper pounded.
Crazy Conditions On First Day, Wed. Jan. 27, 2016, Of Recent Giant El Nino Swell With Plenty Jaws Peahi Maui Wipeouts HD. Solid heavy rising swell through the day with the biggest sets (20+ft Hawaiian) going unridden & the the biggest set of the day coming in at end of the day with no one out. http://www.facebook.com/PureDigitalMedia
On Friday the game was changed at Jaws with one of the biggest and most perfect swells ever ridden in surfing. A huge crowd of chargers took it on, with a solid crew of Safa chargers, like Josh Redman in the mix. (Check him in the video.) Aaron Gold from the North Shore is being credited with possibly the biggest wave ever paddled into. Below is the video, with no music, which is actually super rad as you get a feel for what it is like up on the cliff watching live.
