Fanatic would like to delight you with another great wave clip right before Christmas. Their wave team riders Klaas Voget and Victor Fernandez are riding the legendary One Eye break on Mauritius. It was a day to remember during September 2015! A big swell hit the island. Klaas and Victor made it out in the afternoon and ripped waves till the daylight was almost gone. The waves had a lot of energy on that day and big barrels were breaking over the sharp reef.
Klaas Voget comments the session: “The main channel was closing our and we were not sure if a boat could even make it to the outside to shoot from. This session in One Eye will stick with me forever. Being so close to the huge barrels and coming in on one of these massive and fast moving lines is such an intense rush!”
John Carter (photographer): “At 2.30pm myself and Manu Grafenauer (movie producer from Enjoy the Soup) were in the boat both feeling kind of anxious at what we are about to let ourselves in for. Manu had even brought fins with him in case the boat would flip which was not exactly reassuring! The thrill of being out in those waves and watching those huge barrels charge down the reef was awesome.”
Holy mother! Big and fast, I’m amazed that other rider is not being eaten alive at 2:07.
Manawa or One Eye?
