Greg Long, Twig, and Alex Grey do Cortes Bank
"In many ways it's the Mount Everest of surfing."
Greg Long returns to the place that nearly took his life four years ago. In 2013, Long had a three wave hold down and if not for quick acting support, would've paid the piper there and then. A year later he faced his demons when he ventured out to paddle surf the wave solo.
Cortes Bank is situated approximately 160 kms directly west of San Clemente, it's a seamount that rises from the ocean floor. No land is visible.
This time around Long had increased safety measures, a WSL-backed production team, and a few good friends to boot.
