He did fine in the bigger stuff. Most here wouldn't have paddled out.

Sure but arguably not in the same league as his performance in smaller waves.

Perspective. Tyler Warren is lead hipster dude. Give him a tri fin and he probably would have obliterated the waves, although as observed he is quite light footed. Some of those cutties are insane. But it's all personal

Chris Garret single fin.

I had to watch it again to see if I missed something, only saw one wave over 6 foot on the light blue board, all he did was take off and kickout. boards weren't doing him any favours in my opinion.

I’d like one of those Christenson midlengths. But not for $1300 odd.

Surprise!! Prbs 50 litre Channel Islands Pod from two years ago at 500 clams. Hayden Lewis makes some nice middies, think Onboard is his "agent"
