Jimmicane #nottoosuccessful for #teamgivinithell

posted by / Photos / August 27, 2011

Today was #nottoosuccessful for #teamgivinithell. We mobbed out from South Florida because it wasn’t chill enough for us (I just used “mob out” and “chill” in the same sentence. The two worst things you can put in a sentence). But seriously, it was like head high and looked like any random Nor’easter that place gets in the winter so we were over it. People will tell you it was going off! They are a confused bunch. Teahupoo today was “going off!”, not Reef Road.

So north we headed to try and find some sizable Irene surf. Unfortunately the one option you have when you pigeon hole yourself into central Florida, Sebastian Inlet, happened to be the only place on the coast with straight north wind and it didn’t turn all the way offshore until the afternoon when high tide came in to kil the form.

The coolest thing was seeing Gavin Beschen, CJ Kanuha, Kalani Robb, Barney, and the Maui Ola Foundation crew who happened to be in town. They were ripping the inlet. Total star power out there!

There were a few super wedges before dark and David Spier was ruling first peak as he normally does, but the best waves seem to always go unridden out there and today that was true again. Rhino ate shit on the best first peak wave I’ve seen in 8 years. That sucked for everyone involved because it definitely would’ve been a magazine
spread. I’m sure he is still mad at himself for that.

Here’s a few photos. Sorry they are so average. I was average today. Tomorrow will be better, I swear!

Phil Watters got caught up on this one but it's nothing compared to the one Rhino had.

    @mik. Well if you have been getting such good waves why aren;t you sponsored yet? I get to surf 5 times a month if im lucky and would kill to be in your position. So don’t taake that for granted,

    Should have tried a little further south. It was great surf for Florida.

    And the HATER of the year award goes to….Jimmy(if it’s not where i’m at or what i’m doing than it’s just not cool!!) Wilson.

    Jimmy, love your take on most s*** but it got damn good down here. You guys can have your over-hyped inlet, I’ll take our sandbars and jetty’s. As far as Rhino’s wave, that is probably the ONLY good wave to come in in 8 years.

  10. Jimmicane says:

    I take back what i said about south Florida. I was just frustrated and spouted off. The footage I saw from Reef Road looked super fun. Not a ton of good ones but definitely a few. We should’ve stayed down there longer.

    love him or hate him, jimmy speaks what’s on his mind, love it or hate it.
    he’s two things, a really talented, young photog and str8-up about what he’s thinking.
    not always right at times but str8 up.
    oh, and he signs his name to his posts unlike most of us blog wankers.
    i’ll take him over most media types anytime …
