A Tasteful Waltz With Unpredictable Backwash
Mason Ho and Sheldon Paison put their dancing shoes on.
The backwash is not your friend; it’s your dance partner. She moves quickly, and it’s in your best interest to keep up. Let her lead, and follow the rhythm. Whoops, missed a step, now you’re cartwheeling down a temporarily eight-foot face.
On your way down, if you look carefully, you’ll see someone having a better time down the line. He’s using the liquid speed bumps as launch ramps and glides through turns with ease. This anonymous surfer is in sync with the music and has stepped on lady backwash’s toes not once.
That surfer, the one who dance with more confidence than you, is most likely Mason Ho or Sheldon Paishon. The duo’s latest performance was on a 4’10 board constructed from recycled plastic, courtesy of Akila Aipa.
Watch the boys tango on their eco-friendly craft here.
