John Mel, Tyler Gunter, And Wil Reid At J-Bay

As a surf-stoked teen, most of us would have given up our entire collection of old Playboy mags to surf a wave as perfect as J-Bay (except for the June of ’96 issue, that one’s a keeper). For John Mel, Tyler Gunter, and Wil Reid this South African dream became a reality last month, and the youthful trio got to spend the extent of the WSL waiting period sneaking in and out of the reeling right-hand point. Watch as the crew tears the place to bits like they’ve been surfing it their entire lives.
