Kelly Slater saves mother and son from freak wave

Kelly Slater has saved a baby and his mother from being dragged out to sea at Waimea Bay, on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.
But the story could have ended differently if the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau 2015/2016 had gotten underway. We explain: if the big wave surfing event had had green light, Slater would have been out, paddling for giants. The show didn’t run. Kelly was at Rockpiles checking the surf at Log Cabins. Suddenly, a freak wave invades the footpath and drags Sarah and her baby Van into the nearby bushes. The Floridian could not believe what his eyes were seeing, and ran for rescue.

Pedro Henrique wins the inaugural Seat Pro Netanya

Pedro Henrique and Maud Le Car have conquered the inaugural Seat Pro Netanya, in three-to-four foot surf at Kontiki Beach, in Israel. The Portuguese-Brazilian surfer enjoyed a flawless stay in Israel by locking in the competition’s combined heat totals and highest single wave scores. Henrique used his air skills and powerful carves to beat Mihimana Braye in the final. “I’m over the moon, I came here not feeling 100% and managed to build my form in this event so to finally win is incredible. I’m going to go home and train more to be ready for the next events. It’s amazing to start the year like this but the season is long,” notes Pedro Henrique.
