Jamie O’Brien and Ben Gravy are not only fantastic surfers, but these two have managed to gain big Youtube followings by documenting their surf adventures.

Of program, you can’t specifically manage when that happens. On this particular event, the Waimea River wave turned on in the center of the evening.
Not to be deterred, Position and Gravy brought in some flood lights, flares and a entire lot of courage. Browsing this potent river wave––which empties into punishing shorebreak––is harmful ample all through daylight several hours. At evening, this beast will get a entire lot scarier.
