Bloodlines Hawaii: Camp 1
Billabong Bloodlines 2017 kicked off in Hawaii with Camp1 this past week. Athletes in attendance included Caleb Tancred(AUS), Brodie Sale(USA), Ocean Macedo(USA), Sammy Gray(USA), Liam O’Brien(AUS), Laird Myers(USA) and Jin Suzuki(JAP). The first three days saw epic conditions with solid waves hitting Pipe, Backdoor & Off The Wall, and the boys surfed 4 sessions a day. Sammy Gray nailed the wave of the camp at Pipe on a beast. Ocean Macedo also put on a great performance with a killer tube at OTW.
Unfortunately, the pristine conditions didn't last the whole time, and a big storm front came in bringing two days of howling wind. The boys opted to surf Haliewa, and went to absolute town on the solid right handers. Liam O'Brien was the standout looking right at home with big ole carves and man turns. Legendary, local Hawaiian and Billabong Coach Rainos Hayes has been running the team through daily stretch sessions, session debriefs and even mock heats at Haleiwa.
More to come from the Billabong house on the North Shore of Oahu soon! #BillabongBloodlines
