Teahupo'o Wakes Up

It's no accident Julian found himself in the spot for some of the longest barrels of the day - perfect positioning under the ledge and extra commitment on the inside saw him scoot past Jeremy, the reigning Tahiti champ, before dominating the round 4 superheat with Parko and Medina. After riding his Air 17 earlier in the contest, Jules stepped it up slightly for the more powerful conditions with a Forget Me Not round pin (6'2" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 28.4L) before settling on another one closer to his shortboard dimensions - 6'0 1/2" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 28L.

This FMN round pin set up as a quad is usually what you'll see him on either at Teahupo'o or Fiji when the waves start getting super hollow.

At 5'9" / 76kg, he went with a slight step up Forget Me Not round pin, with a touch extra thickness compared to his regular Monsta 6 - 6'0" x 18 5/8" x 2 3/8" x 27L. Photo Ryan Miller
