A suspeita de que Kelly Slater desembarcaria em Fiji após desistir de competir o Bali Pro em Keramas se confirmou no último sábado (26), depois que o norte-americano foi flagrado nos tubos cristalinos de Restaurants e nas bombas assustadoras de Cloudbreak.
Um swell épico atingiu o arquipélago de Fiji neste final de semana e muitos outros surfistas, como os baianos Danilo Couto, Yuri Soledade e o chileno Ramon Navarro, participaram de uma sessão histórica de tow-in na bancada de Cloudbreak.
Confira abaixo algumas imagens do swell.
Amazing day of waves at Cloudbreak today. So many crazy waves from a mix of crew. I spent over 11 hours in a boat in the line up today and shot so many frames. Here’s just a handful to kick it off @surfnavarro @danedamus @danilocouto11 @mcnamara_s @damienhobgood @jamesbillywatson @namotuisland #cloudbreak #epicconditions #bigwavesurfing #joli #joliphotos #namotu #namotuislandresort #fiji #memorymillionaire #mynikonlife #surfer_photos #surfer_magazine #gothere
Just take a second and process this… @surfnavarro kicked out right next to me and all I could do was give him a big hug. Today will never be forgotten. It was an honor to be in the presence of an ocean doing this. There is no better wave on this earth than #Cloudbreak. Lots of questions about competition and the event in Bali…Long story short, I am not on the level I want and need to be to compete. I did catch one really nice wave today, went straight perfectly well, and saw a hundred other good waves. When I’m ready, properly healed, and able to compete with the world’s best, I will. Good luck to everyone in Bali for the @wsl event and hoping for some more tomorrow in Fiji. Wow is all I can say. I’m inspired and more excited than ever to see surfing where it’s at! I’m calling at least 1 Billion people on this earth should have witnesse what went down today. This stuff is like people going to the moon…by tomorrow people will say it didn’t happen. 👽🏄🏽♂️🌊
