Here comes the final video from the amazing Reunion Wave Classic 2011.
A few words on the pro riders…
Camille Juban. Not much to say on Camille. He’s on a different level, a true surfer, sailing port tack as good as starboard tack, and at the same time a great jumper (check his massive backloops).
Colin Sifferlen. We been following him more than ten years, he’s another ex-top freestyler (crowned king of the lake at Garda 2004), now living at New Caledonia and riding some the the best waves southern hemisphere may offer. We were impressed with his timing and his flow on the waves.
Julien Taboulet. Normally becoming a father settles thing down… obviously that’s not the case with Wesh-Wesh! He was hitting the sickest sections (even though we would prefer more a front foot oriented bottom turn…) offering us some awesome action. Definitely a “Do or Die” papa!
Jules Denel. I strongly believe that France “produces” some of the finest wines… and some the the best riders in the world. Is Jules on of them? He has the talent (and style!) Time will tell…
Tom Hartmann. Do not wonder why my tall Austrian friend has been invited to Reunion. Having witnessed him ripping Mauritius One Eye break some years ago left me speechless.
And finally Leon Jamaer. He was starring at one of the best clips we’ve seen so far this year, “bru’s over gnus”. Certainly one of the hottest new riders, a guy that we shall keep on eye on and be talking a lot about him in the near future…
After many years with Naish, i decided to change to Quatro/Goya. Thanks to Naish for all the support and good cooperation over the past years. Now it’s time for a new era and taking it to the next level, cant wait to rip it up on my new gear!
All the best Tom, we’re waiting for some action photos from One Eye on your new gear!
