response to yellowblack2 - I can't believe that I am actually responding to you but the things you write must be for a comic book! And no disrespect to Puerto Rico because I love it and have been there over 30 times starting around 1980 when Pilo,Edwin Santos,and some Americans inc. Rick Rasmussen had a fight at Marias over surfing!
About your response comparing Sunset to Tres Palmas and Chatarra to Pipe I am curious how many days U surfed Sunset or Pipe when the buoys are 10' every 22 seconds? Well although I have surfed Sunset,Pipe and Tres Palmas I have never surfed Chatarra so I cannot say which is the longest.However, a friend of mine which I would love to hear what he says Alberto Licha is 1 of the best surfers from Puerto Rico and I know he has spent much time in Hawaii because I surfed with him there and he CHARGES and is "the MAN" in BIGG Waves. So hopefully he can give us the real info. And by the way,pretty work on your el rolls and whipsnaps and humdingers but remember- Tricks are for Kids or evidently someone "licking toads" are something stronger!!

yellowblack - I meant to say my parents are from here, Puerto Rico. Jibarito heritage. I also ripped Tres Palmas on the XXL day on my 6'4" squash tail thruster doing stand up el rollos inside the barrell only to land, stall(with my legs ofcourse) and riding hands free back side in the foam ball which led to a round house cutback to foam bounce then just faded and waited to do a bottom turn vertically up into a Kerrupt flip, but I didnt land it right and landed behind the wave. All this was possible because it was only 6 foot out there and I called it bigger cuz I wanted to impress some ugly ghastly pale girl from Ohio.
