Watch: Pre-Comp Supertubos

We're not gonna go back and start quoting ourselves but last week on Swellnet we mentioned the odds were good for some hot edits to come out of Supertubos pre-comp.

And here we are.

Shot by Peyton Willard two days before the waiting period began, it features R-Cal, Connor O, Leo Fear Of Aunty, and Nic von Rupp, who isn't in the comp but jags some of the better waves of the morning.

Lastly, not sure if it's been mentioned before, but at eight days, Supertubos has the shortest waiting period of any CT comp - except the Surf Ranch for obvious reasons. We're not sure why the waiting period is so short, yet it's a beachbreak with a swell/wind requirement that already makes for a low odds combo. Hoping to strike the requirement during a shortened window is putting much faith in luck.

There is a skill in fine tuning boards and body; turning these sloppy odds in your favour (to make it or break it).

Thanks for the updated forecast Finals days could be good.

Like NVR, in some of the clips coming out, there have been some pros not on CT but are are there - Ace Buchan, Mikey Feb etc. Are they on someones entourage, doing some sponno exposure? Maybe just a simple strike mission cause it’s looks fun as buggery!?

NVP bottom turn / backside stall combo.
2:42 mark; played that back multiple times.
My goodness that boy rips.
Something a little bit ‘Old School’ going on there too.
Love it.

Few photographers on the beach it seems. Though this one captures some different waves:
