Anticipation was awfully high going into this session; the previous day was supposed to be smaller but ended up with perfect conditions and great swell for the entire morning. Although we arrived early the following day, we took our time and let the lineup sort itself out. Word had got out that the waves were good and the crowd was twice as thick as we motored out to the peak that second morning. Russell, Leroy and Whip were kind enough to drive me out to the slab to shoot after we organized our crew.
