WAVE OF THE DAY: ALEX GRAY, P-PASS, 01/21
"It was obvious that this storm was the biggest of winter thus far," Alex Gray said. "I mean, it literally covered the entire Pacific. With the focus on Hawaii, I had hopes of sneaking away to P-Pass under the radar. I asked Wassel's opinion and he said "bigger than our last December's swell." Dorian simply said "it's going to be nutso." Their opinions were more than enough to ask Body Glove if I could go do a Turkeymelt webisode and book a ticket. Well, the swell exceeded all expectations. Everyone had the session and waves of their lives. I kept paddling back out screaming "is this really happening?!" Five hours of huge, bionic, gut-wrenching barrels. Sometimes when you throw it all on the line, everything comes together. I'm officially the luckiest human in the world!"

When it comes to striking a hurricane swell, timing is everything. Anxiety stirred as Hurricane Dorian made its way up the Eastern Seaboard. The crew analyzed swell and wind charts from Cape Hatteras to Nova Scotia, hoping to make the right call. As we paced back and forth, Team O’Neill legend and East Coast specialist Cory Lopez finally gave the thumbs up to book our flights and head to New Jersey. The Strike Mission was on.
