Mason Ho’s Gymnastic Reef Dodge Is The Best Thing You’ll See Today
“All fins attached, nothing touched, no dings!” – Mason Ho
If surfing were a circus, Mason Ho would undoubtedly be our ring leader.
The 31-year-old is incredible, terrific, and entertaining in every single way, but primarily when he surfs waves that are not actually waves but in fact pieces of rock or reef where the ocean occasionally lets off steam.
From that steam, Mason takes a big whiff and gets high from the salt-tinged chaos.
Case in point: after returning from a month in Indo, Mason sampled Oahu’s summer swells with his pal Sheldon Paishon, surfing all manner of weird corners, wedges, and reefs with fire and aplomb.
However one day, Mase surfed all alone, presumably because Sheldon’s brain registers severe danger like the rest of ours, while Mason saw nothing but pillows and flower beds where volcanic rock resides.
Never, in all my life, have I seen such reckless negligence around a dry reef shelf, and I know a lot of Australians. Yet somehow Mason, and his board, made it out unscathed.
“All fins attached, nothing touched, no dings!” Mason told the camera after his session.
How that’s possible, we have genuinely no clue.
