Yesterday during Day 3 of the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout, the WSL’s Women’s Team–comprised of Bethany Hamilton, Moana Wong Jones, Keala Kennelly and Bianca Valenti–paddled out for their heat in absolutely macking conditions and put on a performance that prompted many stunned emoji faces on social media. Hamilton–who needs no introduction–packed a tube so wide (see below from Surfine) you could fit a truck through it.
Not one to be outdone, Moana Jones Wong also threaded a vehicle-sized tube, resulting in a clean ride and a beautiful sequence shot captured by SF-based photographer Sachi Cunningham, seen below.
