Friday 17th of January saw a good start to the year for all the surfers on Maui. The season has begun and Peʻahi aka 'Jaws' did not disappoint. Although the size was not record breaking, there were still sets in the 30ft + range (face height) providing surfers with perfect conditions to paddle out at the famous big wave break and get into the swing of things for 2014.
Make-A-Wish Ambassador and Big Wave Surfer/Ocean Adventurer, Mark Visser was asked if he could help teach Jasmine and her sister how to surf with a private lesson.
16-year-old dare devil Jasmine was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and wanted a surf lesson as part of her wish to go to the Gold Coast. With summer just around the corner, sun shining and perfect learner waves, Mark and his brother Kev pulled out the 9 and 10ft big wave guns to take the girls for their first surf lesson.
It was the first monster swell in the southern hemisphere this season, which hit Teahupoo in Tahiti, 13th May 2013.
Teahupoo is pumping. It's time to pack. The world’s best big wave riders were waiting for this particular weather pattern and it didn't disappoint. Blue skies, sun shining, crystal-clear waves but an ultra crowded line-up. With more than a dozen tow duos vying for position and twenty plus spectator boats clogging a fully packed channel, the lineup was a dangerous place to be.
