After a grueling year on the World Tour in 2014, the Smith Optics International team rider CJ Hobgood wanted to get away and press the reset button before another big year in 2015. The team made a mid-winter strike mission to the Caribbean side of Panama for some of the punchy, tropical beach breaks and a little relaxation at Red Frog Bungalows.

Here is the surf recap from late December 2014 into January 2015 from our friends at Macaronis Surf Resort.
All video is from Macaronis wave + a few snippets from the ever-so-famous beginner break out front, Fish Fingers! Most of the surfing in this video is done by Macas staff because there was hardly anyone here! A normal “crowd” was about 3 people deep. Lucky to snag a few barrels this time of year and lots of open face for practicing those hacks! A great time for relaxing and getting some time in the water all to yourself
