The South Florida Yeti Lets Loose On Kandui
Pete Mendia drops some Indonesian hammers!
We hope history remembers South Floridian goofyfoot Pete Mendia kindly as the possessor of what has to be one of the Top-5 all-time frontside downcarve hacks. The Yeti’s hammers are as heavy as anything Occy or Dane Gudang have ever thrown.
Pete’s also comfortable under the hook, a standout at any pit on the planet, from Pipe to Pasquales, Meatgrinders to Kandui. So it is with great joy that we occasionally open notes from Pete with links to his most recent salvos, whether in Central America, Hawaii, at home in South Florida, and especially from his annual Kandui pilgrimage with his tween prodigy Kepa in-tow.
Here’s Pete’s “Shalomic Intervention.”
