As we reported this week (see our article of 1 February 2023), the famous Jaws wave on the island of Maui in Hawaii was the scene of exceptional conditions on 22 January.
If for some, like Marcilio Browne and Robby Swift, these XXL waves were an opportunity to express all their talent, for others the day turned into a nightmare.
This was the case for Jason Polakow, who, after falling on his first wave, spent several minutes battling the elements at the foot of the cliff overlooking Jaws. More motivated than ever, the Australian returned to the water a few hours later, only to be crushed by the washing machine again!
Thanks to Frenchmen Julien and Camille Bouyer, who are currently on the scene, we can look back on an epic day with a wave that knows how to make the slightest mistake pay dearly...
