Newport Goes Bananas on Big Wednesday

Hurricane Marie Fills Newport's Coast With Massive Waves

For those that had the right size board and the right size "juevos", August 27th, 2014 quickly became the Number 1 day of their lives, thanks to Hurricane Marie.

MyGo got a call from O'Neill's Head of  Marketing the day before Big Wednesday asking for a grip of MyGo Mouth Mounts to give out to Jordy Smith, Timmy Reyes, and others from the O'Neill team to have for the big day.

Just before Big Wednesday in Newport, we got the call that the boys were in need of some MyGo Mouth Mounts.

Even through the early morning haze, everyone could tell that this day was going to be massive. It was already 18ft and building AND cleaning up as the morning went on.

With the size came a shift in the mood for the surfers paddling out - this was serious - and so most of the boys opted to go charge without the added worry of a GoPro®, except for two; Koa Smith and Ethan Carlston.

Koa was stoked to see us with an extra MyGo Mouth Mount because he left his at home. Props for charging with it, Koa!
Ethan managed to get shacked out of his mind on several bombs. Having the MyGo Mouth Mount landed him a feature with Surfline!

 Koa got an incredible barrel that clamped on him and stole his GoPro®, so please, if you find it send us the memory card at least!

Ethan got spit out of an incredible barrel with the MyGo Mouth Mount for the entire beach to see, and for the rest of us to see through his point of view!

This is what a massive cavern at Newport looks like. Relish it, because it doesn't happen often.
Ethan got deep on this one and said of this day, "One of the best days of my life.. and definitely the craziest day I've ever seen at home!"

Congrats to all of the chargers that got a giant gaping vision on Wednesday August 27, because most of us were plenty happy to just watch.

Alex Gray - Turkey Melt - GoPro Hero 3

Alex Gray frothing with his GoPro

Do you like barrels? I advise that you watch Slaber Nackle on Alex Gray's website Turkey Melt. It is a collection of "a fist full of slabs across the planet." In one of the best shots in the movie Alex is using the GoPro Hero 3+ and a mouth mount. He transfers the camera to get the behind view in this massive open barrel and then he casually looks back at the camera. Just the other day Alex messaged MyGo about our MyGo Mouth Mount for GoPro. We're excited to have him using our product and we can't wait to see the footage he is going to get.
