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.

Froth, simple as that!

Deceivingly empty? Or is that a one off weird one down the beach.

Either way, so good.

Epic shot today Craig.

Big question- did he make it?

(doesn't matter if he did, just going on that has cemented his legend credentials)

Thanks Zen, he did all the hard work and then pig-dogging on the heavy section, lost his footing and got smoked,

Geez Southey. Lighten up fella. Woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning did we, or was there someone sticking their camera in your little poop hole. Got the power on down there yet, watch out the new world is coming. Must be so enlightening living in the dark all the time, way down south. Really.

Excellent action shot today. The wave is just large enough to be consequential with a nice bit of nuggety heft to it. The surfer is nice and deep with chance of making the wave still an entirely feasible proposition. Provided they didn’t somehow screw up.

Shots of crew streaking through a close out are the worst, particularly when they’re captioned as though someone is getting the barrel of their life. CoastalWatch was chronic for it.

8/10

I wholeheartedly agree.

What's even better is that Pete always sends his images in a bundle, and they arrive with a conspicuous absence of fanfare. Almost like, 'Was going to delete them off the card but I thought I'd send them to you.' The sort of email that presages disappointment.

And then you scan the attachments to find pure gold.

Cool shot. Captures the slicing through a wall of glass vibe. Different angle is nice.

Love todays pic and caption considering the swellnut galleries varied opinions on what rolled through over the last few days. haha.
Here's a few more pics posted by Judy Scanlon from the good days.
My theory is as soon as that water goes that browny green colour it's 8foot plus. Not sure why it does go that weird colour though?
