J-BAY STILL ELUDES ME

Filed under: Pancho Sullivan — wpssuperblog @ 6:36 pm

Well, That was quite the mission getting home. After four flights — one being cancelled and then rescheduled six hours later before being delayed another four hours — and about 24 hours on planes including a cool 19 hours of layover thrown in I stumbled off the plane into the beautiful tradewind breeze’s of the Hawaiian Islands.

Ahhhh, it feels good to me home! J-Bay has still eluded me. This was my second pilgrimage to the famed right-hand point break and I am pretty shattered that it had not gotten over 3′.

It is a really soft wave at that size and a little sectiony. You have to nurse your turns which is frustrating because you have so much down the line speed. When you do get a good section it’s a tight, high, compact pocket which really only lends itself to a projection turn down the line. It is a really good wave for riding twin fins and fish models. Fast highline trim yourself silly. At that size anyway.

What a magical location. The point itself is just beautiful. The sunrise sessions are lit up with all kinds of pink and orange colors. The dolphins greet you daily and you can’t help but love the beauty of the countryside around the town. Had a great trip!

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

All the best!

Pancho

  2. Interesting to hear your thoughts on jbay, the online commentators were saying there’s only a couple of guys who manage to consistently get big turns in, though saw you grab a few good ones. Look forward to watching in France, hope there’s we see some power so you can turn it on.
