The Brock Swell breathed fresh life into the Bay last week for The Eddie, but that the energy would push the big-wave selection all the way to Pe’ahi would be typical of the hellman’s spirit.

This clip of Michael Ho is from Billabong’s “Surf into Summer,” and I think it was filmed in 1985. I edited “Summer,” and didn’t know who the surfer was, and whoever shot it didn’t know either. A couple years later Brock Little told me it was Michael, and that he (Brock) used to pop “Summer”
