Jaws and the surfers who have been tackling it have been getting a lot of coverage lately. What with the filming of Point Break 2 and the fact that Hawaii and Peahi have been catching some pretty beefy swells, it has all added to the media hype. What has passed by with very little razzmatazz is the fact that it has been tackled drop knee on a Bodyboard for the first time ever by a local rider called Miles Kauhaahaa
NO.6 rider, Miles K has been making a name for himself as an accomplished rider of the Drop Knee stance and finished 9th on the DK World Tour last year. Miles can be seen regularly busting big slash fantails or performing flips and airs whilst riding Drop Knee.
The video below features Mr K and some of his recent exploits and when you see him sliding in at Jaws on his signature board please remember that he is riding a 41” board with no skegs and manages to make it look pretty easy. Some of the surfers on their guns don’t exhibit as much control and composure as Miles does. Check out the roll at 3.54 and let us know what you think of Miles’s accomplishments so far?
