Bear Cummings, Kirra, during Cyclone Winston, from the portfolio of Corey Wilson in TSJ 26.1. “Bear and Mick Fanning were among a small handful surfing this day,” says Wilson. “There was too much water moving to swim, so we took out a ski as a platform and to shuttle guys around. It was a combined effort for sure.”

In a nutshell: tri-fins demand constant pumping. Singles enjoy running along at their own pace. In fairness, nothing accelerates through the various stations of modern performance surfing quite like a multi-fin. By the same token, a balanced single uncouples a surfer from style- stealing body mechanics and flow-breaking, multi-staged, bottom turns.

A frozen 800th of a second stirs an entire journey back to life. The rush to the airport. The long dusty West Oz drive. Camping with fisherman. Waking up to this. And a guy named Lockie who’d been standing right here his entire life. ⠀

Styrofoam gas bath: Michael Peterson seeking warmth where he can find it at Bells, 1976. Arch competitor, mind gamesman, point master, M.P.’s influence increases as the decades roll through. If you were unlucky enough to be in his next heat, this is the sort of intensity he’d employ to churn your gut.⠀
