Greg Long Talks Positioning at Pe'ahi

Greg Long's success as one of world's best big-wave competitors is far from accidental. He's a noted tactician with an uncanny knack for finding the best waves in some of the world's toughest big-wave lineups.

While guys like Albee Layer and Shane Dorian may prefer the more technical West Bowl section at Pe'ahi, Long chooses to sit further out the back and wait for chip-ins on waves that stand up deeper.

Long's Zen-like patience leads to fewer waves than his fellow competitors, but his results over the years more than support his quality-over-quantity approach.
