There are good waves and there are great waves. This was a great wave, from start to finish. And we're focusing on the finish for this slice of the 2016 SURFING Factory. A combination of wind, weather, whispers and wonder brought us to a new wave somewhere up the coast. A wave with an end section that one-upped any wave pool we've ever seen or heard of. It was tricky, shallow, moody, mean, and plagued by 30-minute lulls. But when everything came together, it was perfect. In that alive, natural, chlorine-free way.

Here are some clips from land, sea and sky. Want to know what was happening out the back? You'll see that in another edit dropping tomorrow.
