I have to say, that was absolutely mental. Perfect entry and exit, absolutely flawless.

after 139 views ,finally a reply....ftl you summed it perfectly, was starting to think no one else thought much of it. to me that broken down to a 30 shot sequence,would come in on par with scardys fiji wave last year,much smaller i know but as you said entry and exit,and the first 100 metres of high line pumps -f ing beautiful......

WOW!! Without a doubt one of the most bullshit barrels I have ever seen. The way that it triple sucked over that ledge... and he was so far back... completely fuckin' amazing. How fast was he going to get to the ledge?? Fuck. Has anyone spoken to him about that wave? Legendary status needs to be cemented.

Victor, looks like all of those barrels he clocked up at G-Land was pretty good preparation for Tombies. No doubt about it, the guy is a charger! Filth Barrel.

Had the pleasure a few years back to sit under the tree and watch Camel methodically take Moneytrees apart.7 ft swell rolling thru and Camel just ripping with big fades, barrels, cracking the lip all while wearing a Red gimp mask .

Best exhibition of our art form Ive seen including wardrobe.

One of the last of the mohicans.......lets hope Camel holds ground on land demons and keeps pushing the limits in the water.

I'll throw a gold coin to see him at massive Cloudbreak.

Yeh, I only saw it when Udo revived it. Went one post up, there you are, 'big bloke'... or 'big boy' minor detail. Toddy sent me a link to that wave ages ago, top effort. But, its not camster anymore for me, 'Big Boy' sounds cooler. The sponsors will like it better.

Still not as good as when the hallowed, deadly accurate Surfers Journal tried to pass the vicco 'diplomat', 'wordy', off as 'a burly hulk of a man'. Poor cunt, he almost had to leave town, everyone had a copy. 'Here's a bomb, go ya burly little hulk!' Surfers Journal. Then Taip's sucked some journo into writing there how he discovered and charged his way through Indo.

Toddy did hint that his memory was a bit shot, and it coulda been him on that NW wave though?

You gotta help van vanity with his crab stance.

Slightly bemusing.

uplift Saturday, 4 Jan 2014 at 9:31pm

The most bemusing part, is that the booties are actually half the former caml, 'big boy's' design. We used all the best attributes of different booties, plus some different ideas, for the perfect surf bootie. I was in the position to have them made for us, and got them done. The rest is 'history', so to speak.

I remember camel wearing some suit made in WA with pockets for booties and cut off below the knees.
Made for coming in on the reef using your knees to climb up the coral. Seemed like a good suit for places like one palm.And stashing booties,wax and a beng beng or two in the stash pocket.
Is that the wetty you are talking about?

uplift Sunday, 5 Jan 2014 at 12:42pm

Thats even more bemusing! No, not that one, its booties Im talking about. Although some interesting wetty stuff was involved. It was when wetsuits were really inflexible. Rip Curl had no idea how to make a flexi one so their 'design technicians' used to bullshit and say it was impossible, because the suits would be too flexi and come off in the surf... hilarious. However, some other people came across some super flexi, for back then, rubber and did it. Everyone was blown away, hard to imagine now what it was like. The 'big three' freaked, and I got to see first hand how much 'spiritual bro'ship' there is in surfing. I feel really sorry for those guys that made those suits, Tracks did a thing, how they were blown away by the suits, the first truly flexible suits.

At that time The former caml, 'big boy' was working on designing a 6" thick chainmail suit, with built in bullet proof vests, hari krishna and peace stickers, and sensors warning when he was approaching the SA border, that activated an ejection mechanism.
