Watch Eric Geiselman Land A Flip

Sequence: Corey Wilson

This wasn’t supposed to happen. Eric Geiselman, Evan Geiselman and myself were walking from SURFING’s not-very-humble concrete abode to Keramas. A wave surfaced at a peak we passed on the way — nobody was out and who were we to say no? There was a perfect air wind blowing into the lefts, which was ironic because, well, there were absolutely no lefts. After thirty or so minutes of nothingness, we realized that actual Keramas would be way more productive and decided to head down there…and then didn’t. Like, at all. Not for thirty minutes, until Evan finally decided to lead the charge and paddle down. Eric and I agreed on one more wave and on an unsuspecting little bowl, Eric launched and landed this behemoth. Sometimes, fate ain’t such a bitch.
