Proof that a wave can make a man, nobody in the surf world knew who James Hollmer Cross was until he started pulling into barrels like this at Shipstern Bluff. One of the most experienced surfers out there today, he makes these kind of situations look too easy. Calculated in his approach, he threads the line of life and limb like a surgeon.
