TORREY'S WAVE OF THE WINTER

Our favorite surfing cowboy absolutely destroyed the winter of 2018/2019. We'll have more on that later. Today we're highlighting Torrey's insane rides that made their way into O'neill and Surfline's annual Wave of the Winter competition on the North Shore of Oahu.

In typical Torrey fashion, he charged, HARD, and the 7-mile miracle rewarded him for his merits. The panel of judges, which includes Pipeline Legends Gerry Lopez, Pancho Sullivan and Ross Williams, all claimed Torrey's wave on January 23rd to be the best backdoor wave of the season. The size, the drop, the depth and speed, this backdoor barrel blew minds (and a whole lot of spit).

But Mr. Meister couldn't stop with 1 solid ride that week. He bagged a proper Pipe entry too.

Nonetheless, Torrey loves Hawaii. And Torrey loves charging solid swell on the north shore so we felt inclined to include some of Torrey's entries from years past!

Enjoy
