If you're an aspiring surf videographer, there aren't many better places to be than Hawaii's Pipeline. Show up there on a day with a solid swell and you're almost guaranteed to see some of the world's finest taking advantage of the break's perfect barrels.

It’s no secret that Dylan Graves has a special spot in his heart for wacky waves. Heck, he’s even got a whole web series—Weird Waves—dedicated to finding and riding them. Thanks to this unique passion, Graves is always on the prowl for strange things in the wild—like this slab in Puerto Rico.  RELATED: New Wave Park in Arizona Set to Open in 2021 The wave wasn’t substantial enough for a whole episode in his series, so instead, Graves coupled it with other banger clips in his latest edit .
