As the swell started to roll in the buzz around this swell suggested not, we got straight on the phone to see if we could get our hands on something to show just how good it was, if the stories of mile long rides at 12ft+ J-Bay sounded unbelievable the photos tell it like it was…

The charts were showing this for 1 week straight
