Sundance Beach Pioneer Andrew Bennett Scores in Fiji!
Not a drop of water out of place was a realistic claim this day.

Cloudbreak is unique compared to other world-class waves because you can get a long barrel, do turns down the reef, or do both on the same wave. On June 19th all the variables aligned for Cloudbreak to be just about as good as surfing gets. With two of the best surfers on the planet there to scoop up the best waves it was an experience that I’ll remember forever.
Looking out of a perfect barrel at Cloudbreak and seeing Kelly Slater in the channel throwing double shakas is something you don’t see every day.
The evening offshore winds combined with a long interval swell created groomed walls to bank off.
Some of the barrels were extraordinarily long and peeled down through the end section named “shish-kabobs”.
All day sessions + living in board shorts + beautiful sunsets = paradise.
I still can’t believe Bobby Martinez went on a surf trip!
He caught a lot of ridiculously perfect waves on his little 5’6” Channel Islands New Flyer.
Getting caught inside was no fun. It could take 10-15 min to get back to the line-up if you found yourself getting mowed by a set.
