Team Quiksilver’s J-Bay Warmups
Jeremy Flores, Leo Fioravanti, Zeke Lau and more get suited and booted in South Africa.
And the J-Bay related content continues pouring in. Here’s team Quiksilver’s warm-ups from the other day. A session conducted somewhere in that grey area between everyone’s board bags making it through customs and the first heat horn. Let’s break it down. Leo Fioravanti looks like he might win another heat (find out more in heat seven of round two) this year despite almost getting snaked by Strider. Zeke Lau surfs like he wants to continue drawing Sunny Garcia comparisons — not at all a bad thing. Connor O’Leary has the judges favourite move on lock. Kanoa Igarashi previews a little something from his round one performance and Jeremy Flores wears a wetsuit with a neon green Quiksilver logo tramp stamp. Wiggolly Dantas does too. That’s enough drivel, just hit play and watch a bunch of very good surfers enjoy themselves at one of the world’s most complex and beautiful waves. Possibly throwing you into a fit of jealousy in the process.
