WATCH: “That” wave from the BOP Salt Creek (five years ago today)

 

It’s exactly five years to the day since the Battle of the Paddle took over Salt Creek and gave us one of the most memorable races in the sport’s history.

After I posted that flashback photo this morning, I dug through the archives and found the video of the same wave. Oh the carnage.
 

Credit for the original footage goes to Matty Schweitzer (who filmed the front-on shot) and Brad Holmes (who was up on the cliffs looking down on the action). If you want to see more, watch Matty’s full Salt Creek edit for Starboard and Brad’s recap for SIC.
