"Diamond Dave Rastovich, lacerating yet another wide-open West African face (2008), riding a 5'10" Akila Aipa twin fin .... Most normal, competent surfers would be riding a 7- to 8-foot board on this kind of wave -- not Dave. Also, he'd take off 100 yards further up the point than the rest of us. What a weirdo."
