Being one of the pioneers of paddling at Jaws defying the “Tow Only” type of waves, Ian Walsh has been leading the pack in pushing the limits of what is possible. Back then, Peahi could be surfed only by getting towed in by a jet ski but recently, more guys have been challenging nature and facing fear right in the eye.
In the recent Peahi Challenge where Walsh was crowned winner, he caught one of the best barrel rides ever in the world-renown surf break. If you think the slightly overhead waves you get in your home break are already dangerous, Jaws surf break is a massively amplified version of that and Ian took it like he was just surfing a regular barrel.
