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. More »

Rip Curl Pro Puerto Rico (23 Photos)

February 20th, 2013 by John Zanussi

For the second time in a couple years Rip Curl has brought an ASP contest to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Back in 2010 it was the world tour event that saw pumping waves at Middles, the passing of Andy Irons, and Kelly Slater win his 10th world title. The most recent event wrapped up last week and although it didn’t have the huge moments that 2010 brought us, this year’s 4-star event, which was held at Jobos in Isabella was a not only fun but successful and proves to me that Puerto Rico should be seriously considered as a permanent spot on the ASP world tour. During my time in Rico, I met up with rock-star photographer Mohammed Raoof of Ecliptic Visuals and he did what he does best and captured all that Jobos and the surfers had to offer with his camera.
