Watch: Jaws late January
Two vids that give a comprehensive rundown of the late January swells at Jaws.
The first day, the one you've no doubt already seen footage of, was 20ft but it was the lack of wind that characterised the day. Maui glass was a real, non-ironic thing, and more barrels were ridden that day than what sometimes get ridden in whole seasons, including Billy Kemper's make which is surely one of the most perfect barrels yet seen at Jaws.
First up, is Red Bull with their long running 'Sessions' franchise...
Followed by the first instalment of the Wozzle's big wave feature series - At Large. This, you may recall, is where their XXL energy is focussed now that the Big Wave Tour is no more.
Two days after Billy got his barrel, Jaws broke again, but this time bigger and windier, and tow was the order of the day. That session is also included in the Wozzle film.
From a media standpoint, it's gonna be interesting to see how Red Bull and the Woz go in this arena. There's a large amount of crossover, same surfers, same waves, many of them even shot by the same filmer.
Is this town big enough for the two of them?
