LAST WEEK,  we announced our first sponsored rep for Malibu Surfboards, surf journalist and Malibu local, Shannon Quirk.   The day after her announcement, she jet-setted off to Maui to cover JAWS, a surf challenge event in Maui where big wave surfers ride some of the season's biggest waves, as part of the World Surf League's (WSL) Big Wave Tour.  

We were beyond excited to hear about Shannon's next work adventure. We thought - why not have her take us behind-the-scenes, documenting a day in the life of her production work?  With much excitement, she did. Shannon took over our Instagram page [@MalibuSurfboards], taking us and our followers behind the scenes of a day in her rad life as a sports journalist.  

Despite the WSL's announcement to call off the Pe'hai challenge, Shannon still covered some awesome footage. Take a look!

Welcome to Jaws! This was the first photo I shot as we reached the channel at Maui's infamous big-wave spot. There's nothing more humbling than staring into the eyes of the beast.

Post-production - a surf session is needed. Just a girl, her surfboard, and her favorite hoodie.

Monster swell of the winter, #Jaws peaked in size just before dark. We watched @danilocouto11 catch this bomb on his birthday, the best present a big-wave surfer could receive -- the ultimate ride, surrounded by good company.


Maui vibes with our exclusive Respect the Locals hoodie.

So much adrenaline was pumping in our boat ride out to #Jaws #Peahi, with a great crew of big-wave chargers! @andreamollermaui @ejamestaylor
