In May, there was not a lot going on in Europe, so the decision was made to hit Mexico for some seasonal swell with Bruce Irons, Cory Lopez and Jamie O'brien . Mexico can be a sketchy place. The people are wonderful and the waves were incredible but whilst the guys were in town, a few cars had been burnt out and helicopters were buzzing around the air as there had been a major raid on a local drug lord! Needless to say this put a bit of electricity in the air. After stopping at friend Carlos’ place over night, the morning waves were building up making for a potentially epic day ahead. The surf was amazing but not everyone got away easy, Laurent took a big hit and was rolled into the shorebreak, breaking his ribs and ending his trip, at least he gets to play with his new camera on the shore!
Pro Surfer Benjamin Sanchis has said goodbye to the grind of WQS surfing and embarked a career as a freesurfer. Follow him around the world as he chases huge swells at Mavericks, Jaws, Punta de Lobos, and of course, his home breaks around Hossegor. You never know where Sancho is going to be next, but you can bet that he's going to be ripping.
