Came across this random session of Pancho Sullivan, Archy and Sunny Garcia at OTW in the early 00’s. Archy’s first snap is just BEYOND, Sunny is tack sharp, Pancho just F’s my world up. Seeing him surf live makes you feel sorry for waves. If you are in need of inspiration to make waves BLEED... then have a look at this super session of wave gore-
Not very many people who fall into this category of wave gore. Pancho Sullivan, Sunny Garcia and Archy are definitely some next level heroe’s in this genre, but who else? Dane Kealoha, Johnny Boy Gomes, Larry Bertelmen, Buttons, Kaipo Jacquias, Occy, Margo, Andy Irons, Nathan Fletcher, Pete Mendia... maybe now a days someone like Dane Reynolds, Jordy Smith, Zeke Lau, Dane Gudauskas are comparable ... To be clear... Wave gore category is someone who throws their heart and soul into every maneuver but also has this underlying X factor that you can’t practice, it’s either in your blood or it’s not. FULL BLOWN WAVE ASSAULT. People do sick turns yet fall short of this category in my opinion... WHO MAKES WAVES BLEED? Leave names I left out in comments below, let’s gather the ULTIMATE WAVE GORE list.
