Isaac Stant: Caught Inside at Jaws
Thursday, November 14th, 2013
Yesterday the islands of Hawaii were greeted with a massive winter swell out of the north, and with it brought waves too unruly and too big for many of the islands inner reefs, but Maui's world famous Jaws came to play along with some of the world's best big wave surfers.
Chargers like Hawaii's Shane Dorian, Mark Healey, Ian Walsh, and Eddie Aikau Champion Greg Long from California brought their big guns to battle, paddling into 30 foot set waves in very difficult conditions. In the mix, our very own Waterman Isaac Stant paddled alongside the best and showcased that his off season training and winter swell preparation paid off as he found himself in every surfer's worst nightmare.
With the winds howling and the deep ocean's surface being anything but friendly, Isaac found himself in a bad position: inside and all alone. He scratched his way over the first set wave but to his dismay, was left head on with wave number two: bigger, wide mouthed and hungry.
Due to his physical and mental strength training with Cross Fit, Isaac returned home full of stoke and very grateful to be back safe and sound.
