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.

A Spartan, yeah but.... being a member of the DS cult it still surprises me how much my DS lights up with a bit of size and power.

DS is a broadsword. Spartan a rapier.

DS for big paddles. Spartan for when you have to be able to duckdive.

Great angle of Kirra today.
Makes it look like a much easier wave than it is.

I love how you can see the state of the open side ocean on the other side of the Pt Danger headland complex.

Excellant shot.
True urban-surf.
Superb timing by the photog to capture the line up with so few bods and not one jet ski in sight.

Today’s. There’s been reasonable waves there and surrounding points all week. Big shout out to the early morning seniors swimming group all laughter and fun. Love that area especially in autumn and after a good downpour when the air is full of the scent of salt and eucalyptus

Yes, nice photo. Presumably from the Vic surf coast but having such a sunny northern point vibe.

Well, in a photo, it does get a sunny northern point vibe, including the crowd, but without the wave quality or consistency.

That shot of Noosa takes me back my wave of the year… 9th April 2022.

Got a wave from Boiling Pot to the surf club during cyclone swell.

Hit & run mission to Sunny Coast to see the Oils farewell tour.

Was also my late mum’s birthday!

Happy New Year everyone

Good shot from Tim. The muted colours. The light thru the windblown spray. The photo angle that gives you some of that visceral surfer feeling.

Yeah if not a good imposter, used to surf it when bigger back in the days of my youth always got cleaned up but it never humiliated me like big Main Break often did.

Could the angle the photo was taken be designed to hide its true location? If that were the case perhaps it’s a very well known reef on the east coast? Maybe maybe not

Does that mean it's not frowned upon to sit outside and take the bigger ones, then kick out before the inside? :-)
