A few months ago, when the North Pacific Ocean was flatter than a broken wave pool, we asked a few credible surfers who they think is the best to ever do it at Jaws

Quite a few of those names rolled into Maui last week for the first significant swell to hit north-facing Hawaiian shores this season. The footage above includes many of the familiar high-rollers who gamble on the biggest barrel in surfing, but with a soundtrack you’ve never heard in a surf edit before. 

Adding a grandiose Post Malone tune to thumping Jaws is a bold yet fitting choice, so kudos to avid big-wave filmer Tucker Wooding, who filmed and edited the clip above. Tucker made another bold but highly efficient choice to shoot drone and land angle footage at the same time from the infamous Jaws cliff.  

Tucker says Albee Layer was the standout of the swell, thanks to multiple threaded tubes on the west bowl. Tim Bonython (water shots) and Slater Neborsky (from the cliff) corroborate that claim with their own clips. 

The swell brought some fresh faces to the lineup as well — Maui resident Kai Barger dusted off his Jaws gun for the first time in a decade. Jack Freestone made the island hop from Kauai to visit Maui for the first time ever, and subsequently got his maiden Jaws beating and one legitimate right.

Enjoy Peahi’s opening day on what could shape up to be a productive North Pacific winter.
