One Extremely Grainy Wave That Put Our Chins On The Linoleum

Nothing inspires awe like a surfer throwing everything at a beefy section. 

Matt Meola in France comes to mind. John Florence at Backdoor and Haleiwa. Noa Deane in general.

Recently in South Africa, a kid by the name of Luke Slijpen decided to insert himself in this discussion. On an ugly, significantly confronting day in Durban, Luke took off on a chip-shot double-up, eyed a knuckle down the line, and turned his amygdala on sleep mode. 

Hitting a section of this magnitude is beyond terrifying. Every part of your brain and body screams that it's not a good idea. Pushing past that barrier is remarkable in itself. But to ride through such a vicious explosion in these extreme circumstances is worthy of near-infinite praise, even if the clip looks like it was filmed on a Motorola Razr. Hence this hasty post on our little web portal.
