And just like that Jazz is back… daydreaming about sunnier days in the South Pacific. We hit him up to share some insight into all of the places he got to have a few waves. From New Zealand to the Mentawais and everything in-between… Enjoy.

 
Tahiti was the first stop. I got to surf glassy head high Teahupoo alone. Not sure how it happened, maybe the locals don’t bother at that size. I wasn’t sure what board to bring, but the super soaker definitely held it’s own.

We scored Raglan like this for two weeks straight. The wave is such a machine, just so long and perfect.

A big, windy, scary day in New Zealand. Definitely a good time to get to know the beer chug. It took me like 5 times to find a channel along the rocks to get out.

We had some pretty tricky conditions in OZ but everything came together at this spot. The super soaker handled!

Bells and Winki Pop don’t need much explanation. A fast, lined up point break perfect for the fish.

A super playful right in Fiji. This was on the Coral Coast. It is less well known than the Cloudbreak area, but still has plenty of good waves without the crowds.

Some very solid Cloudbreak. This was right before the huge 20 year swell came. I surfed it this morning, got one proper one, and then got washed over the entire reef past the old comp tower and called it a day.

A good intro to Indonesia. This was my first day at Bingin. It’s such a predictable wave, it’s an auto barrel.

This is Super Sucks in Sumbawa. It’s pretty fickle and transforms from the most calm, beautiful, picturesque bay into one of the hollowest, heaviest, draining barrels in indo.

I actually got my best wave of the trip at this spot in South Sumatra. You can kind of tell how square and shallow it was.

We spent 20 days at lances right. It’s the epitome of perfection in the Mentawais for good reason. We had a couple bigger days here and at Lances Left that were perfect for the beer chug.

More Ments perfection.

Sri Lanka was the final stop. It’s the land of perfect, rolling, right hand point breaks. Erin had the right idea with her fat & singe, she scored harder than me here.
