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.

Nice looking tail on her.
The middle fin looks quite big, bigger than the rest why....?
Been very interested in the bonzers, from some of FR76's posts and some chaps from USA (http://bonzer5.com/boards/)
a mate of mine put me on too...?
Maybe move this to the designo boardie stuff forum, very interested Saltman, always looking at different boards to ride:)

Done

is it true that there are rusty old ship's hulls there or is that part of the magic of storytelling

Blowin: Indulged myself in a guffaw.

Yocal: If you hear a good story you should never ask if it's true or not. A wise fella told me that once, and Newy locals might agree.

"A face only a mother could love".

Thirty thousand. That would be at least how many captioned surf photos I've seen. And not once have I seen this nugget of gold pulled out of the hat before. It's been begging the whole time when you think about it and to be so hot on the heels of the Midsummer Knights triumph...that's a master stroke.
Take a bow Mr Nettle.

Last x2 WOTD's 11-12.2.15
Todays ..dead give away with those cliffs..
Awesome beach break.
When surfing there by yourself thoughts always crossed your mind, similar to yesterdays WOTD's caption "Looking for Company''! Just to share the stoke:)
Pretty sure you would still get it like that today....!

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .

Dead give away with the cliffs.. if you've sat in the lineup before! I've personally got no idea where it is. Looks super fun though.. a mellower version of Blacks.

Welly, is it W B? On the Coromandel?

Looks similar and if so, had a smokin' sesh there once with some nice (but ripping) local blokes.

Tis a gem of a place, if more of the cliffs were shown it'd be easier to pick, but there's enough to keep people guessing. Would love to score it one day.

Today's shot has grown on me. At first I was focused on the pit, zooming in on my IPad . But it's a full story being told like all good photographs.
The colour of the sky, water and headland . The bounce of the lip on the surface of the water.

Great stuff.

I dig it. Burleigh without a trace of concrete to be seen, just the verdant headland, a grinding barrel, and a top marking local - someone who's only ever called Burleigh home - sitting deep within it.

It's taken at Nantucket in the NE of the US. Last week they had wild storms (you may have seen them on the news?) that froze waterways along the eastern seaboard. When Jonathon took that shot the water was half frozen, able to transfer the energy of the swell but not the surface chop.

Still it's very sad to see pics of it online every swell! It's a good wave but not "Epic". Just super photogenic at the take off.

When I surfed it from 2000 till 2009 we hardly saw any one from outside of the local areas and it was very rare to see a camera.
