Jamie O’Brien and Ben Gravy Surf Giant Waimea River Wave at Night

Robert S. Hays

Hawaii has been finding a ton of consideration this January thanks to an remarkable run of swell, most notably “Super Swell Saturday.” But though 99% of Hawaii’s jaw-dropping surf clips appear from one of its a lot of earth-class surf breaks––Jaws, Pipeline, Waimea Bay, etc.––we observed a person wherever the surfing requires place in a river.

Jamie O’Brien and Ben Gravy are not only excellent surfers, but these two have managed to gain enormous Youtube followings by documenting their surf adventures. Whilst Ben Gravy is from the Midwest and created a title for himself surfing a wave in all 50 states, Job is a pro surfer based on Oahu’s famed North Shore. Inspite of their distinct backgrounds, the two surfers are fantastic ambassadors of the sport and document their surf existence in an unfiltered structure.

So what occurs when you place two of surfing’s very best vloggers alongside one another? Properly, they make it a mission to surf one particular of Hawaii’s top rated novelty waves. The Waimea River wave is fickle but rippable, and only breaks when a rainstorm has swollen the river and water goes pouring into Waimea Bay. Of program, you can not particularly control when that takes place. On this distinct celebration, the Waimea River wave turned on in the middle of the night.

Not to be deterred, Career and Gravy brought in some flood lights, flares and a total ton of bravery. Browsing this highly effective river wave––which empties into punishing shorebreak––is harmful sufficient through daylight several hours. At night time, this beast will get a total great deal scarier. Check out their chaotic session in JOB’s edit previously mentioned (river surfing starts at 17:30) or Ben Gravy’s edit below (starts off at 10:30).
