What is the left like at Mavericks?
Really heavy [laughs]. I went to Mavericks on this trip with that in mind—to just really focus on the left, and watch it and try to get some good ones. I think a lot of it has to do with how the water was moving in there and it’s just a really, really violent wave. You really have to pick your battles and commit if you want to get a good one.
Healey is a freak of nature..He goes left at Waimea, left at Mavericks, and can hold his breath longer than the average human being..You can read about the lefts he rode at Mavericks last week in this web gallery we made for Surfer...
