Finally Someone Gets Barreled

Big and soupy conditions out at Margaret’s River has these round two competitors doing their best spring cleaning routines with winding, sweeping turns — and it’s all impressive, but it’s not the greatest to spectate.  We’d all like some verticality and creativity, some spice…and some barrels.

It’s Josh Kerr who does his best to answer that call.

It was sloppy and just barely large enough, but it was there and he struck while it was.  The power of Margaret’s River is put on full display at the end of that clip, as Kerr throws himself in between the colliding walls of white water.

Kerr, above, tries again to find that cover, and does, but only for a fleeting moment before he’s shot out like a bullet from a gun, and then swallowed by the surging white water monster.
