Tonic Mag Hoody and T-Shirt

Is this the Heaviest surf session ever seen in the Mentawaiis? Nic von Rupp has been travelling to the Mentawaiis Islands for the past 10 years and for him this was some of the biggest, heaviest, shallowest, and most dangerous waves he’s surfed around there… It might look perfect…

This wave stands up lilke a train, its steep like looking down a cliff, once you made that drop and pulled in, you never know if that last section is going to do… Its a roll of the dice, wether it stays open and lets you out or just close out because the reef is to shallow to handle such mass of water.
You gotta pay to play, and this time the boys paid to play.. Scratches, broken board, split up noses and to finish off the session Nasty Nate knocked himself out on the last wave.
Life of a pro surfer is the dream they say , until you go head first into the reef and need to get stiches but your 16h away from the closest Hospital.

Special thanks to Greig & Eric & Tank Girl for making this trip happen.
