Kohei Shirakawa keeps pushing the limits

Hey Everybody, our buddy Kohei Shirakawa, who was the first sup guy from Japan to subscribe to Standup Journal, back in 2008, keeps pushing the limits… here’s his report from the typhoon swell zone:

I woke up this morning with big roar of waves hitting reef and saw the biggest swell during this year’s typhoon season.

It was cloudy and foto might not appear very fancy, but it was heavy. I got a couple long hold down. Lucky I was wearing this life vest because I have bitter experience here, almost drown when I cut my leash before.

Hope you like those fotos.
