Luke Davis Tames The Panamanian Sea Monster

In this adorable little edit!

Words by stab

Luke Davis probably isn’t the first name that comes to mind when you think about charging. 

The Californian pop sensation is known for his dyed hair, stylish frontside carve, and generally flamboyant demeanor. But underneath all the glitz and glam resides the heart of a lion, ready to take on any online troll or throw himself over the ledge of an angry, warping reef. 

This winter Luke did two major trips – the first to secluded island in the Caribbean, where he found a small day at Snapper with 1/1000th of the crowd, and the second to Panama’s Caribbean archipelago, which is known for it’s grey skies and heavy-breaking waves, both over sand and reef. 

While in Panama, Luke stroked into a Kong-sized wedge and cartwheeled miserably down the face. After suffering what could only have been a brutal rinsing, Luke hopped back on his pink potato and paddled back for more. On his second attempt, Luke knifed the drop and found himself facing a quickly cascading lip. He backdoored the bulbous section, fought through the foam ball and the rest, as they say, is history.

Don’t believe me just watch!
