Surf Photo Friday – Justine Dupont and Pauline Ado in California

One of our favorite things about surfing is how the love of riding waves brings so many of us together regardless of country, culture or language. On the last morning that French surfers Justine Dupont and Pauline Ado spent in California, we made plans for a quick session before they jumped on the freeway to catch a flight from LAX later that afternoon. We were greeted by a bit of drizzle and zero sun, but we were also blessed with uncrowded, glassy rights.

It was such a pleasure to watch Pauline and Justine’s different approaches to the same lineup. A surf coach could write a “how-to” textbook after watching Pauline surf. Her combination of speed, power, flow, and clean rail work left no doubt why she continues to be an annual threat on the Women’s ASP World Tour. Justine Dupont took the the polar opposite approach. Where Pauline would go top to bottom as the wave lined up, Justine would routinely skip a section or two to build up crazy amounts of speed before launching a big air or fin-throw. Her surfing is electric and futuristic.

After an hour of shredding, the surfers headed up the trail and out of sight …until next summer when we hope to do it all again.

Thank you for dropping by for another installment of Surf Photo Friday. Have a great weekend everyone …and as always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl.
