Keahi de Aboitiz - Cloudbreak video
« on: December 26, 2018, 11:21:36 PM »
Hey guys,

Back in May and August, I ended up having a couple amazing trips to Fiji and was pretty stoked to luck into a couple crazy ones on the sup during my time there. Hereís a few different angles of two waves that felt pretty damn good! Hope you enjoy it

Kiteboarding clips were pretty bad ass too, ahh.....I got the chance to go Tavarua last February, really cool place. I want to go back for my 40th and stay at Namotu. Waves were roughly chest to head high most of time, but we had some rainy/fluky days and the wind never did turn on enough to kite.

My biggest worry was not being able to SUP any of the waves, but it was pretty do-able (although it was much smaller than that). I never did make it to Namotu Left, just Cloudbreak and one day at Swimming Pools.

Nice to show what everyone what can be done on a SUP.

That's an insane barrel on sup w/WAY many different povs! Amazing. Probably the deepest barrel I've ever seen on a sup (besides Kai?). Sup rail grabs are tough and I've only done a couple after all these yrs. Seems like grabbing all that rail is kinda difficult compared to a regular prone board.
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

Go App!, Ive been many times to Namotu and its the best place on earth!!!!! 100% SUP friendly, I learned there but all their boards were to small for me but its where I knew I had to get going on a SUP! Pools and N Lefts are great waves, hell all the waves there are great! SuperGliding Pools and kiting Lefts.

Check this guy out!

Mexico's version of Keahi.

Yeah, amazing next level SUP surfing. Crushing it is right. As phenomenal as Keahi's waves at Cloudbreak are, this guy is taking it to another level in terms of size, gnarliness and commitment.

Thanks for posting.
