Taming the North Shore

It's that time of year again where the team head to the North Shore for the Triple crown. Some of them deal with re-qualifying on the CT, others are just qualifying and the youngest are just here to get more experience, Hawaiian style.

Stoked on his 3rd place and getting those more than ever needed WQS points at the Reef Hawaiian Pro, Jeremy Flores is also on the list of invitees to the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the big wave invitational and Jeremy being invited for his third year running since winning the Pipeline Masters at Bonzai Pipeline in 2010.

I'm honored to get an invitation for the Quiksilver Eddie Aikau. I've been chosen to be the European wildcard in the event for the third year. This is scary & exciting at the same time. The swell hasn't been quite big enough for it the last few years but I have a feeling that this year's the one. Mother nature will decide!!!

Not scared off by the crowded line-ups, best mates Leonardo Fioravanti and Kanoa Igarashi have been going guts for glory and making their mark for the younger team riders staying at the Quik house.
