Damien Hobgood’s Cloudbreak Drainer

The Cloudbreak — muscular, rugged, wild — and the Damien Hobgood — also muscular, rugged, a little wild — are the very best of bosom pals but occasionally come to blows. Here, the latter succeeds in subduing the former for a time, but is ultimately swallowed up (see below) by what general consensus has decreed was the wave of the day on Sunday. So much for the day of rest.

Seen in profile, slowed to a crawl, the spectacle is mesmerising, beautiful, alluring. The real-time, full-frontal perspective, which shows the ride in full, reveals a far hairier proposition.
