This photograph was snatched on April 29 in conditions the photographer describes as thoroughly unusual for a southern Californian spring. “Mother Nature blessed us with light to strong off shore winds, a three-to-four-foot combo swell peaks and tons and tons of tube time for most everyone in the water,” says Robb. “I’d just got done swimming and shooting for a few hours and as I changed out of my wetty everything was still amazing. Offshore winds were still howling, insane waves were still marching through, the sun was hot and guys were still getting barrelled. I walked back out to check the action, holding a camera, looked over and saw Jared and a few of his buddies trading off tube rides. I think I saw him get about 10 barrels in 10 minutes.”
