I was on my way home from the Oakley comp at Canggu when I got the call from Lon. We’re going in the morning, he said. I missed out last year so I didn’t question it this time. // It was my second time there. Nate was frothing hard on the swell, so I was preparing for the real deal. The first time I went there it was barely breaking. This time it was almost 10 feet. // The wave is like no other. It was crazy. // The best wave of the trip came through and it was just me and Jay out there. It was his turn so I was like, go Jay! He started to paddle for it and then let it go. I was like, what the fuck dude? He said I didn’t psych him up enough when he was paddling for it. He would have gotten so barreled. I have the clip. That wave was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen Jay take off on way scarier waves than that. I don’t know what got into him, I guess the sight of such a perfect wave just froze him. – Lee Wilson
