I got a little bit of money for making the finals of Follow The Light, so I just used it to buy a ticket to Mexico. I went during the Pawa contest at Pasquales and there was a good group of guys around. I love that place. When the sand is good and the swell is the right direction, I think it's one of the best barrels in the world. It's a beachbreak too, so it's really spread out. It's crazy how it focuses all the of the swell energy right there — you could walk 200 yards down the beach and it'll be 3 feet when right out front is 20. I think it's magical. —Seth de Roulet
