Wipeout of a lifetime

We had our first real day of solid swell for the season, 2 days ago. It was easily the best opening day for Pipeline that I’ve seen. relentless swell through out the night moved a great deal of the sand before daylight, although there was still some pretty heavy backwash and wobble happening out in the lineup. Just ask this poor guy from Puerto Rico called Roger Moore. Yep, same as the 007 fella. He took off on a huge set wave, only to get pitched over with the lip. Guaranteed, he’ll remember that one for the rest of his life.

    And you know what, we ALL know who Roger Moore is too now, so his career just gained a massive boost, despite the hard yards. You just don’t forget stuff like that.
