An ultra-blue tropical session to stir up the melanin!
Here is a compelling short of Craig Anderson (who famously rode big Kandui on a five-four Hypto three years ago) along with quasi-German Nic Von Rupp and a few others surfing a wave that is as rich and gamy as fois gras.
Kandui is one of those waves that, in theory, gets easier the bigger it gets. A real nice chip shot in, but there ain’t no way of shirking what’s to come down the line. On days like those filmed here, the end barrel will bring to mind a high-rise during an earthquake.
It ain’t always perfect, there are no cushy booths to sit in while the wave folds, but it’s this imperfection, the honey-lacquered end section that turns into messy shreds, that makes the video a success.
