Wellymon posted an awesome lineup shot of a windswept break somewhere east of Kiwiland a while back. That got me thinking..... Now please excuse and forgive me if somewhere deep in the bowels of swellnets forums there is a similar thread, but perhaps bloggers here could post in their old (and new) lineup photos, or shots from memorable sessions.
And please don't "photoshop" them...... Personally, I despise photoshop. It's not real..... I love the rustic charm of real photography, even it's imperfections. I like the older photo's in picture magazine too, if ya get my drift..... nothing like a rough tattooed home girl, but that's another story ;)
I'll kick it off with Coolum bays, as good as it gets, circa late 90s, and a slightly more secret break , 2012, down here in apple land, which I wont name.......
Look closely, first photo of coolum, has guy on outer wave, second photo has 3rd bay kegging off it's nut, and tassie photo also has guy sweeping bottom turm on outside bomb...

Southey, the 'secret-y Victoria' spot had a full spread run with historical breakdown in a Vic-based magazine recently.

Bullshit Stu .... mag Schmag .... no reason to say where ( ie what state ) .....
as for it making some obscure local mag , doesn't make it right .... I can guarantee if someone was seen to take photo's and then share them wherever with names that people would be upset ....
Just like a shot i recognised from a WA location that made WOTD , and you or whoever deleted the thread i started to out you guys for showing a PHOTO that was definiteley not Kosha . ie its image gives its location away ....
anyway shatner love your work , just try to be a little discreet for everyones sake .

Firstly, we didn't delete that thread. In fact Fitzroy even commented on it y'day.

Secondly, that WOTD wasn't from West Oz. So how does the image 'give away the location'?

My brother has some really good pics. Here's a slightly different one that is definitely worth sharing. We make a pretty good team actually, he dares me to do something stupid, then he captures it perfectly. This pic is probably my favourite portrait. I love the rawness of it. Stunning pic. The wanky / arty words below are just something I tried to work in with it, trying to do it justice.

The Edge

This unique and exceptional image cleverly portrays the duality of the human experience.
Strikingly beautiful, the subject stands firm with zen like calmness within the heart of the surrounding chaos. Seemingly, he protests against the violent forces of nature that bare over him, and it paints a turbulent, quite frightening, and uncertain future.
He somehow possesses, in the same moment, both incredible strength, and a raw, fragile weakness.
This photograph also expresses the solitude of existence, while also displaying the connectedness and oneness of our human experience within the ether.
With the ebbs and flows of life's many varied currents, the trials and the victories, ceaselessly and inevitably draining back into the mighty ocean, the force and the being that spawned his rich, yet futile existence in the beginning.
It is a life that is forever lived awake, and on the edge.

Nice Shoredump. But nothing can prepare you for this killer cyclone action from 1981. Death defying.. Incredible scenes from Yorkeys Knob, as a 14yo sheepdog tackles some of the most unforgiving swells far north qld can offer, on a 6'1 burford single flyer round pin single fin.... Apart from the intimidating nature of these hell waves, these beasts of nature, one must dodge broken bits of boat, box jellyfish, and hungry saltwater crocodiles..... But it's the waves...... The waves that make it all worthwhile...... :/

Benski, . If you're out there.... Yeah, it might've been the 27th (noosa swell)...... There was only about 6 of us out at Tea tree.... Freakn dangerous off the rocks that day - highish tide, massive swell.... Opted to paddle out from the beach. The outer jump off spot was basically a no go zone, with 6 foot walls of whitewater smashing all the way up to the cliff face....... Finger rock was getting swamped.... Anyway, caught about 4 absolute bombs.... Got one that reformed all the way in..... Though fuck this paddling, I'll give jumping off the finger a go...... Wrong!!!!!!! Was 3/4 of the way out on the rocks, and one of those "hidden last waves of the set" started to drain....... Fuck....... Surrounded.... General Custer..... Sprinted and jumped, but don't know if my leggy caught a barnacle, or if part of the wave explosion did something, but my board got slightly twisted out of my grip - a 5 foot vertical jump and wack,,,, rail in the jaw.... "blacked out" underwater for a millisecond.... dead set seeing stars like in a cartoon, no shit..... sounded like a bomb went off...... Anyway, underwater... thought "fuck this is serious"...... Fought the concussion and got to the surface, got to me board, and got out the back.... Felt a bit sick in the guts....... Time to assess. I couldn't feel my chin, like I actually couldn't feel it , as if a dentist went psycho with a needle over my whole jaw...... I then felt under my chin, the fleshy area between the chin and adams apple...... There was a hole.... my fingers kept going in deeper... I could nearly push them up into my mouth under my tongue..... I looked down and there was blood pissing out. My white rashy was red. A couple of blokes looked at it and their faces went white.......
But in true he man style, I caught a wave ( they were kind enough to call me in) and got to the beach... Was a fuckn good wave too...
Using my rashy to hold me chin together, me mate Rod (rip brother ;( ), and I started to walk back to the carpark... At the pot lookout, the shock wore off and the pain kicked in...... Fuck me....
Anyway.... still alive..... still being a c***...... Lived to tell the tale.... And how embarrassing would it've been to die surfing fuckn Noosa...... ;)
