Pete Mel // The Executioner - video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

"Nathan Fletcher stands up on his jet ski from the safety of the channel and watches closely as a man on a dark green board strokes into a massive wave outside the bowl at Mavericks. After a perfectly executed ride - as seen at 2:30 - Nate screams, "That's not the commissioner, thats the executioner!""

Pete Mel, the Commisioner, the Executioner.

And for those crew curious about the recent Swellnet article on big wave twin fins, check Pete's board at 0:45 seconds.

I assume it's all Cali, but some of those waves look very Victorian.
Fair ding at 1.52 as well.

Wikipedia puts P Mel at 47; 2 years older than KS. They look about 15years apart in their surfing. That said P Mel is shredding.
