Remember when he 'redefined' power surfing at margs with the so called shallow bottom turns?
Well that looked like good old fashioned big off the bottom, big off the top pocket surfing in 8-10 sunset to me :shock:

Such a great style. So relaxed and nonchalant.

Unbelievable! So calm. Makes the very hard look incredibly easy, which is the essence of style to me.

Like the great Richie Benaud, jjf knows the benefit of metaphorically shutting the fcuk up in between turns

If it's the same board he was riding at big Haliewa the other day it's a 6'0 Ghost, there''s a clip somewhere with Pyzel talking about it.

Guy is just so much critical on bigger waves than anyone. He is sent from outter space to blow minds.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

That was pretty perfect. Centimetres in it.

I still prefer jjf's though.
