Stop What You’re Doing And Watch The Pe’ahi Challenge
“It’s going to be the craziest day of competition ever!” – Albee Layer
This is a Public Service Announcement:
Whatever you’re doing right now lacks importance.
Jaws is on. And we mean ON!
The men are out and already we’ve seen some of the wildest barrels not made at the break in competition. Grant “Twiggy” Baker just pulled into and almost made one of the biggest, most perfect Jaws tubes, er, ever. We’re pretty sure the spit hit him in the back with so much force it sent him bodysurfing out of the gurgling mouth.
This morning women went nuts. In the Stab office, the general consensus was someone might die.
Keala Kennelly (pictured below) charged and won.
And, that grave consensus remains. If you like madness, and surfing that brings your heart into your gullet, tap this link, head over the World Surf League and watch the best big wave surfers in Maui’s premier big wave break.
This morning, Albee Layer told Stab when prompted on the morning sickness present, “It’ll clear. This is going to be the craziest day of competition ever.”
So far, it’s proved true.
To whomever is coming in late, Jaws is off. Competition will resume tomorrow. You can still watch the livestream, however.
