Behind The Cover Of The April 2012 Issue Of TransWorld SURF
Damien “Dom” Wills, Off The Wall
Every surfer who’s ever ventured out in to waves of consequence knows the feeling. You’re waiting for a set, your heart is pounding, your muscles are tensed, your hands grasp the rails of your board intensely. Then you see them. Multiple mounds of water rising in the distance. It’s the hardest decision you’ll ever have to make. Do you scramble toward the horizon and hope to get over them? Do you paddle in and pray to God they don’t break on your head? Do you freeze in panic? Or do you do what Dom Wills does and paddle over the first one, hoping the next one will be bigger and badder? The decision is yours.
