Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico Freesurf (19 Photos)

The waves at Jobos never really turned on for the Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico but during one of the lay days other parts of PR were firing. In fact, on one particular day you didn’t have to travel very far from the contest site to find perfect waves. Luckily for us (and now you) our photographer friend Mohammed Raoof got in the water and snapped the following water-shots of the freesurf sesh that took place.
