The wave of the day does it for me big time. Nice work Steen Barnes , Shaun Anderson and Swellnet.
In one photo you've encompassed everything nice about surfing. If I was a wanker I'd say that it was perfect except for the fact he is in a wetsuit. Which it is , it's perfect .....except for the fact he's in a wetsuit.

In view of the continual shit onshore conditions I ask that WOTD be cancelled or alternatively start showing photos of onshore crap just like we have had in Vicco since was it October last year?

Yeah todays wave of the day looks like my local on a solid day, looks great in photos but reality is without a ski you cant surf it like that, way to shifty and mostly close outs, but looks great in photos when you time a great photo.

I had one of these Maccas bombs like this break right in front of me one day absolutely ripped me to bits, i still remember looking up at it about to break about three metres in front of me, i dived down to the bottom then it just pinned me there for a second or two then just tumbled me all the way down the reef like a ping pong ball.

Came up gasping for breath, cuts to my legs and arms and my arse hanging out of my shorts i then paddled in with my tail between may legs..

It was actually my own fault though, these bigger mutant ones are actually very easy to avoid as only break about 2 metres further out and maybe a metre wider than a wave half the size, i was sitting inside trying to snavel the smaller deep ones and got a bit cocky.

Nah, they usually send their shots through month by month, but they skipped the queue with that one. Expect we'll see more photos from the swell shortly.

Hell of a wave...

I know a couple of blokes from around your way that were over there and I was hoping you might have a shot or two of them pulling back on a bomb set wave that would provide me with couple of decades worth of sledging material.
