Checking in with Kiron Jabour

  

Born and bred on the North Shore of OahuHawaii, Kiron Jabour is what you’d call a “2 to 20” surfer, meaning he can surf in anything from 2-foot slop to 20-foot widow-makers. It’s an elite club, and members read like a who’s who of the surf world. Running with a crew led by John John Florence, Jabour and company push each other to the limit in waves of consequence—and have loads of fun in the small stuff.

From dawn ’til dusk, walk us through your dream day.
Wake up at home around 5:30 a.m. and hear the waves pumping, make a cup of coffee and get psyched! Start texting my friends—John John, Nathan, and Ivan Florence, Koa Rothman, and Eli Olson—to hear that Pipeline is firing! Then we gather up and watch it for a bit and see guys get blown out of huge barrels. Paddle out and surf for hours while watching everyone catch the craziest barrels of their lives; stoke levels are high by this point! After that, go eat a huge breakfast burrito at Kono’s in Haleiwa, go back and score more firing Pipe all afternoon. Finally we come in, watch the sunset, drink some beers, barbecue with the boys, and talk about how sick the day was. Best day ever!
