Down The Line Surf Pod Feb. 27, 2016
This week discuss John John Florence and his win at the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau Quiksilver Big Wave Contest. Held in Hawaii at Waimea Bay February 25, 2016. A spectacular surfing contest. Quiksilver stepped up big time; a great day for Big Wave surfing. February 25th had it all: massive drops, horrendous wipeouts, a tube ride, Brock Little’s memory, Clyde Aikau’s heroics–charging at 66 yrs old! Plus, the significance of Eddie Aikau’s story propagating throughout the world! On top of that we had a great finish — a Cinderella story. Young charger John John Florence (23) being handed the big wave sword, so to speak, by Ross Clarke Jones (50 year old). In addition we discuss Mason Ho, Jamie O’brien, WSL, Dave Kalama, Owen Wright, Mick Fanning, Snapper Rocks, Fantasy Surfer, Neil Ridgeway, Rip Curl, and conspiracy theories galore.
