The Right - video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

This vid starts and ends with Kerby Brown. There are a few other guys also in there, Ben Rufus, Chris Ross, Chris Shanahan, and they're all doing stuff so far beyond normal it's hard for mug punters like me to appreciate it. But then on the last wave of the vid Kerby Brown whips into a wave from what seems the next bay over. He's that deep. Way too deep to realistically make the wave, and when it's over even I can tell it's a pretty damn extraordinary wave.

Extraordinary wave! But then again he has DY blood in his veins via his father Glen!

Honestly, who comments on fashion or trends when it comes to surfing? That last wave is a ride of a life time, power to you Kerby.

The hipster beard menace must be stamped out. The surfing is just a side show compared to this monumentally important issue.

Yep certainly is an incredible clip, and a fitting sound track! . No fancy Indo boat trip pro show . Just a bunch of blokes taking on some down south WA juice.

Curries, a beer after, all that was missed in a great vid was the bong. Outstanding!

I had to watch that again, any of those waves and you'd be buzzing for days.

Kerby's wave at the end is heavier than Laird's millenium wave in the mirror. Way deeper too. Hats off to you chargers. That beard is also Ocean man/ bushranger. He's toking on a rollie not a city ciggie so not hipster. Hipsters don't surf waves like that ever.

On reflection, and in consideration of the above post, I have decided to give Kirby a special dispensation to wear a beard. Possibly some of the best surfing I have ever seen. He should probably have a pass from the cops to run red lights as well. In other words, I withdraw and apologise.

You need to work on your technique, Spuddups.

When Gary takes a guest to G town, there's no need to apologise after withdrawl.

I'm high on the hill, looking over the bridge,
To the Gary-G.
And way up on high, the wave I can see,
is a sweet facey

Yeah, it's a work in progress I guess. Spud town is a reasonably benign place really.
