"We’d been out in the desert shoot­ing away for a few days and we were feel­ing pretty 'desert cooked' for sure. It was hot as hell and I re­mem­ber climb­ing around in the dust on the rocky head­land try­ing to get a good an­gle of the wave. I ended up in a spot next to our good friend and filmer, Tyge Landa. Tyge was clearly deliri­ous from the heat, but pro­vided me with some en­ter­tain­ment dur­ing what seemed like a 40 minute lull. I said to him that it looked like that was it, and the swell had died. For some rea­son he didn’t agree and felt that Craig was go­ing to get a crazy one. ‘Trust me’ he said. Sure enough... five min­utes later the big­gest, bluest wave I saw all trip came storm­ing in. Craig rode it like a buck­ing bronco and nearly got blown off on five dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions. I was to­tally baf­fled when he fi­nally got blown out in the spray, and I will never for­get our boy Tyge jump­ing around like a wild­man on the cliff in cel­e­bra­tion. Desert cooked and lov­ing it!!!!".
