"I finally scored some waves last week, and I shot with my Soloshot the whole time. Luckily I had it because the forecast looked awful, and I had no plans of getting to shoot, but each day I woke up turned out better than I thought it'd be. I surfed 9 days straight before it got good, then the final 3 days I put 23.5hrs of water time in. In hindsight, I wish I would have paced myself more through the swell though, because I ended up too exhausted to put clips together on the back half of every session. Here is are my results. Hope your enjoy." Please click on image to watch.
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.
