Right about the same time southern California was getting rocked by the biggest swell of the year, waves of far more consequence were lashing the boulder-strewn shore of Jaws (aka Pe’ahi) on the North Shore of Maui. Charging headfirst into the 25-foot-plus (Hawaiian-style measurement) surf was a dedicated crew of surfers hell-bent on getting the biggest waves of their lives. Among them was 24-year-old Hana resident Dege O’Connell. Dege, who’s been surfing Jaws for several years now, was on a borrowed 10-foot, 6-inch board and caught exactly one wave that session—and it ended up being the worst wipeout of his life. Here, he dishes on what happened....
Taking the wrong board into surf of consequence is fun for some...
7 March. For Jamie O'Brien, the “Who is JOB” original series has grown from a curiosity to a full-time obsession. The show’s mojo comes from Jamie's complete disregard for the camera - a reality series at its finest. The characters are real and the antics happened naturally long before the cameras ever started rolling. Now in the fourth season of “Who is JOB”, we continue to stick to the proven formula: surfing, travel, girls, stunts and torturing Jamie’s sidekick "Poopies". Catch Vid inside.
Details coming. An epic day of comp. Medina comes from behind in the last minutes TWICE to beat the best at Snapper: Taj in the semis and Joel in the finals. Not to forget beating Mick Fanning in the quarters.
