Louie Hynd trades boardshorts and tropics for neoprene and dark tunnels

There’s something to be said about a freesurfer who opts for a trip that doesn’t involve surfing in boardshorts, applying liberal amounts of sunscreen, or enjoying a tropics-inspired spritzer after surfing in jacuzzi-like water all day — These are the men and women who desire an adventure. Australia’s Louie Hynd has searched for it, courtesy of his sponsor, but he showcased his strength in barrels during this trip and not the aerial assault we’re used to, all the while wrapped in wetsuit from head to fingers to toes.
