My buddy sent some photos of the 2019 Peahi Challenge a couple weeks back. The waves the young guys are paddling into today are just mind-numbing.

In the early '70s, we'd often sit and watch this wave, day-dreaming of the day they'd be ridden. (My first house was in Peahi, 3 miles up the coast from the surf break.)

Funny graph of the headaches Baz 😂

Here are some highlight videos of the Jaws contest.

Amazing paddleing into those waves. You can see them getting hung up at the top while taking off. Then having to do a top turn as soon as the board gets settled, on some of them to be able to make the big section. WOW!
