Oxbow rider Jason Polakow crisscrossed the South Pacific catching record sized swells all the way from Tahiti to Fiji and in the process captured some incredible video.
The summer session of 2011 was nothing short of epic with the largest waves seen in over 30 years. Jason puts on a dazzling video showcase of his waveriding versatility towing-in in Tahiti, and in near perfect windsurfing conditions at Cloudbreak captures a session for the record books.
“There were a lot of pro big wave surfers in the line-up. Everyone was there from Kelly Slater to Bruce Irons. I rigged my equipment in the boat watching all the boys pull into big tubes. The boat started to take me up into the line-up and a huge close out set washed everyone in. I threw my rig into the line-up and basically had it all to myself for 2 hours. A lot of the boys hung around to watch a windsurfer rip big Cloudbreak which was good for our sport. Everyone was shouting and yelling words of praise after each ride,” said Jason about his memorable session at Cloudbreak.
