Top: Nowhere on earth is surfing more scrutinized than the North Shore. Every wave has an audience
of the best surfers in the world. Every single ride is judged by peers. And if you don’t push every
ride to your absolute maximum effort, you become invisible. Here, Dane Gudauskas pushes it with
a mind bending cutback. Almost makes you feel sorry for his fins.
Below: Jordy Smith. Back from injury and using
his over six foot frame to greatest advantage.
His world title bid starts now.
