In the fourth episode of Brothers on the Run, Eric and John Jackson jump ahead a few steps on their itinerary for their trip from Alaska to South America. Why wait for the warm weather down south when you can ride a bone-chilling river-mouth break in Alaska? John may have felt a bit more nipped since he's currently recovering from bone-fractures (Gnarly air to unintentional rock-bonk in Episode 1). Although out of their element, with pointers from pro surfer Ian Walsh, the brosephs manage to do quite alright - excellent example at 5min, 10 sec. After all, Ian owed them one since they recently gave him the ride of his life on a big AK powder spine in episode 2.
Luckily they had 2-3 foot waves to practice on before a solid day of overhead sets rolled in. Everyone looks identical in a full-suit, hood and booties - to spot Ian, look for the only one throwing 360s. Travis Rice also jumped on-board and brought along some classic commentary: "End of the road, my ass. We can take a boat!"
Want to see John Jackson in a bathrobe? Spectators at Alyeska Resort's Pond Skim probably didn't either. Fortunately for your sake, that's how this episode ends.
