“The Smith brothers have been in town since the El Salvador ASP comp and I’ve been trying to link up with them on this little pulse of waves we’ve been having,” says photographer James ‘Jimmicane’ Wilson. “The hurricanes down south of Baja have sent some fun, super angled SSE swell. This is from the second storm. The first storm sent pumping waves to Lowers last week but we raided the place with costumes and foam boards for two hours. Seriously the most fun time ever.” Maybe not so fun for the people that were surfing when the raiders turned up, but awesome either way. If you haven’t seen the mayhem, watch it here.
But, on the day y’see pictured here: “There were a few fun ramps out there. The highlight though, came from when we were walking down to the beach. We heard a guy yell from the parking lot ‘You’re a day late fags!’ We look back and sure enough, it was Christian Fletcher rousting us because apparently we blew it.”
