This is my all time favorite song. Iggy's "Endless Sea". Perfect for this vid.

Damn. Look at that takeoff. That barreling right is moving fast and that guy is so dialed in you could miss how hard that takeoff probably is the first thirty times. But what a reward.

The Ment's are the real deal. Some real growlers at the end of that clip. Get the medical insurance coverage if you go , that's my 2 cents

Yea, that last wave looks like Kandui left. Its such a great wave but that end section sucks. I mean you get the barrel of your life for 500 yds ,then you end the wave on a death pit, dry reef close out. As they say in Texas "El Paso" for this old man.

I think I would wear a wetsuit and a helmet to soften the reef grater.

I was lucky enough to surf Kandui Left on the first day of a boat trip over 10 years ago. I did wear a helmet, booties and spring suit. Some hardcore guys might look at you like you are a kook but you spend a lot of time and money to get there and if you get a bad injury you are SOL. I'm especially careful at the start of the trip slowly dropping my guard by the end since by that time you got what you came for. The boat captains have to feel out the guest to see which waves are appropriate. I'm pretty sure a very well known top local surfer sustained and injury there which cut his trip short. There are an unbelievable variety of breaks there but it isn't always great. I've done 4 trips to the Ments and on two of the trips had problematic south winds which aren't good for most of the breaks with a few exceptions . Even with a wetsuit I got bear clawed on the back on my first wave at "Rags Left".
