Unreal…. That’s all you can really say about the video Lost.TV released a few days ago of Cory Lopez at Skeleton Bay in Africa. It was Cory’s first wave of the day and will be part of the upcoming Lost film: 5′5″ x 19 1/4″ REDUX. Upon first site of the clip, a friend of mine asked me “how do you top that?”…You don’t, you just paddle back out and do it again.
This is also the same break featured in the latest Surfing Mag that had me frothing at the mouth the moment I laid eyes on it. Credit for the wave discovery goes to Brian Gable, who won this year’s Google Earth Challenge that was put on by Surfing Mag. I’ve had my eye on Western Africa for awhile now and this just goes to show I need to hurry the hell up and get out there.
While it doesn’t appear Cory’s shacked the entire time, there’s easily 20-30 seconds of barrel time on this wave. Apparently, he got even more tube time on every wave following this one…. Unreal
