VIDEO: Big Puerto Escondido Barrels ft. Greg Long

Written by:

Big Wave World Tour 2012-13 Champion, Greg Long, is known for his acute precision in the craft of big wave riding. The Billabong surfer takes forecasting large swell very seriously, so when Puerto Escondido lit up the map earlier this month, the San Clemente local made his way south of the border. He sure scored some massive barrels at the Mexican Pipeline. Luckily, filmmaler Juan Bacagianis was ready on the beach with a camera to share these bomb sets with the world.

Check out what Greg Long has been up to this October:
