You might have heard of something called “The Jaws” in Maui. The Jaws is of course the name for the giant waves that break along the shoreline at Maui. You really need some balls to ride into the jaws, which probably explain why you never see any girls riding into the Jaws. Niccolo Porcella is a guy with balls and one of few that does not bail out for the Jaws!
