Mahina Maeda Tackles Massive Sets At Outer Reef
The future of female big wave surfing looks promising.
After this winter, we don’t have to pretend Outer Reef is a secret. It’s real, and the social media accounts of premier surfers proved that it exists. We’ve seen the clips from Mikey Wright, John John, and others, but today we get to meet the female side of the infamous big wave.
At only 22 years old, Mahina Maeda surfs and trains with Kid Peligro, Mark Healy, Paolo Rista, and Ross Williams. “Working with Mahina in training for big wave surfing, we worked several disciplines to get her as sharp physically, mentally, and emotionally to deal with the extreme situations she was going to be faced with. Jiu-Jitsu helped with focus, confidence, and quick thinking while the surf fitness routine helped with her conditioning.”
Based on the video above, the out-of-the-water training seems to have paid off. Click here to watch Mahina Maeda pop the clutch on waves that send shivers down our spine.
