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.
pretty close to uncle owl.
This one makes my clacker pulsate..
Indeed. So you get through/over that one but what's coming after it?
In view of the continual shit onshore conditions I ask that WOTD be cancelled or alternatively start showing photos of onshore crap just like we have had in Vicco since was it October last year?
Thanks guys !!!
'specially for you Guy.
Mornington Peninsula weekend forecast
Pumping as per
Peninsula Closeouts - Bloody Lovely!!
Reminds me of the old peninsula-surf page reports. The surf always looked like it was pumping.
Yeah todays wave of the day looks like my local on a solid day, looks great in photos but reality is without a ski you cant surf it like that, way to shifty and mostly close outs, but looks great in photos when you time a great photo.
Smoking wave today ....
We have no choice! We have no choice!
Tremendous. Someone's gonna pay for it
Haha, you are on fire lately Turks
what a cracker of a wave/place
Today's WOTD is leaving me drooling and giving me the shits, in equal measure.
Signed, cube monkey.
What number now are we up to on Chris Peels pics of this PNG wave?
Edit : maybe i was including Joel Colemans pics as well ?
ha ha no seriously i think we are up to 5 or 6 now?
Best one for a while, commitment +
Today's is a cracker too
Jeezus what I'd give to be looking out of that tunnel right now.
It's been too long...
God damn I was born in the wrong state
I had one of these Maccas bombs like this break right in front of me one day absolutely ripped me to bits, i still remember looking up at it about to break about three metres in front of me, i dived down to the bottom then it just pinned me there for a second or two then just tumbled me all the way down the reef like a ping pong ball.
Came up gasping for breath, cuts to my legs and arms and my arse hanging out of my shorts i then paddled in with my tail between may legs..
It was actually my own fault though, these bigger mutant ones are actually very easy to avoid as only break about 2 metres further out and maybe a metre wider than a wave half the size, i was sitting inside trying to snavel the smaller deep ones and got a bit cocky.
Not the wave but another day
That is a lip and half, unbelievable.
Shit yeah! That is one mother of a wave.
Any words / vids / additional pics on that session (20/4)? Jee-zus that's a wave.
Never seen waves like that on Phillip Island!
Kiwi not Penguin.
Since when did they change north island to Philip island
Same time they changed Australia to east island I'm guessing
Joke lads, just a joke
Bugger it, how good is that wave !!
Lookin the goods today
Got any more shots from that swell at Simelue ?
That wave is a smoker.
Nah, they usually send their shots through month by month, but they skipped the queue with that one. Expect we'll see more photos from the swell shortly.
Hell of a wave...
I know a couple of blokes from around your way that were over there and I was hoping you might have a shot or two of them pulling back on a bomb set wave that would provide me with couple of decades worth of sledging material.
If any comes my way I'll pop it front and centre. Few things are as joyful as laughing at a mates cowardice.
Who is deep inside the barrel of this wave? He's surfing like a demon, whoever he is.
Why the early a.m. change of pic ?
And is it a bit of a nod to Chris Cornell with the caption?
Yep, Chris Cornell/Soundgarden reference (previous WOTD was loaded yesterday before the news broke; this image was a little more suited).
From today's WOTD.
Rails: never underestimate 'em.
