Albee Layer, Kai Lenny, Billy Kemper, Ian Walsh, Zane Schweitzer – some of the
best big wave surfers in the world gathered on Maui’s North Shore to charge during Peahi’s opening swell of the winter season yesterday. And we had people on the ground to film: Jackson McMuldren was in the channel, helping us with this quick edit of the day that saw paddle-in chargers take the prize early. As the conditions deteriorated, tow and kite surfers took over. The take-away? Jaws was still its big, beautiful self – a reminder (as if we needed one) that it’s absolutely the ultimate big wave venue.
