2014 Reef Hawaiian Pro, Day 2

You know how some waves bring out the best in every surfer? Yeah, Haleiwa isn’t one of them. It’s a tremendously powerful wave and it demands a special breed to surf it well. Special, as in, specially talented. She’ll expose your flaws — of both tech and tac — and she might just leave you with a 0 point heat total (hey there, Charlie Martin). Or, if you’re on her good side, she’ll toss a 9-worthy wall your way and allow you to have it (hey there, Conner Coffin and Kalani David). We saw a little bit of both during the second day of the 2014 Reef Hawaiian Pro. Some of it was pretty. Some of it was ugly. Almost all of it was powerful.
