I think it’s going to be pretty big down there! From what I’ve seen so far, it will be bigger than the Cornwall wave classic was, maybe twice as big!! With that the 50 knots + should be crazy out there! I just hope they all get in and out safely! I know there’s a lot of spots down there but choosing the right one will be an on the ground job when you have the eyeball on it.

In wild conditions like that there’s a lot of water shifting around, Cornwall has cliffs, caves, reefs, all kinds of gnarly stuff to get smashed up on!! So like I said, I hope they all make it in and out safe and sound. I think Leon’s got the skills when it’s super gnarly and my money is on him. If not, then it’s team mate Thomas Traversa, he may be small but he’s always on it in storm conditions.
