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.
We’re you in McCrae last night?
If not the search continues... ha hah
I’m safe for now
No one is safe from Gary G, goofyfoot.
Even Gary is keen to find out who the mysterious Otto Davies is.
Some very good WOTDs in the past, particularly his 'now you see it, now you don't' one from a few months' ago
I’ve created a monster. Cause nobody wants to ride faceys no more, they want Gary; I’m chopped liver.
But if ya want Gary this is what I’ll give ya: a little creatine kiss from a hard licker
Great frame today from Andrew Shield cracking shot with so much going on.
The Phantom-like Otto Davies seems to travel far and wide. Searches for pipes as much as Gary does.
Great shot. Unique perspective.
Loving the story told by the paddle strokes and the acceleration displayed by the wake of a nice , big board with the rider perfectly centred.
Hedgey is an epic surfer. Love his work.
Free as a hog is all time .
Nice. Some good days lately.
Today's - SW of the continent at a well known spot?
Awesome, I’ve gone back and checked swell direction, period, tides and winds, booking a 737 with all my mates plus board riders crew, might need two planes, can’t wait, all thanks to Jamyardy
Today’s photo by Lance Morgan is an exceptionally good photo.
You don’t see a lot of water photography from that spot. I assume it’s because it is particularly bloody challenging.
Today’s a cracker
Yep. Judy Scanlon is always nailing great shots of the Surf Coast.
Yep, thirded. Usually when WOTD is a pic of a cracking surf coast line-up shot, more often than not Judy Scanlon is behind the lens.
Yeah, another great shot.
And it doesn’t look too crowded either: I’d guess Winki had 70 or so out.
I wish I could get there more often, but it’s a long day from where I live.
Here are some shots of your everyday surfers at Bells etc.
Sick photo of Gnaraloo. Everyone's got one of these!
Surf it a lot (no one out) back in the day strangely I cannot explain why I took no photos of the good days unlike the Bluff.
Is a congrats in order for Romy? It seems she has taken a new last name since a week ago?
I am the bone
Good pick up. In fact the last WOTD had her name wrong - I got a ‘by the way’ email around midday - but I think the big day was fairly recent.
That grommet is getting a nice pit.
Wish I was still young and flexible like that !
Todays shot.....is that Steve Cox who had the surf shop at Engadine??
He's as keen as a grommet. Not so young. Inspirational.
Is that Wade Carmichael he just snatched the toilet paper from?
Yep its A.J.
Good job SN.
Now let's do a pros dropping in theme week for WOTDs.
Shame them all
Two shots later. Occ won't be denied that last roll of bog paper, and goes in with both hands.
hahaha, occ you greedy fat fuck
go back and promote your pool with shots of yourself out there telling us how good it is even though it's open to no-one else...... again.
Now, in saying that.
He’s still one of my fav surfers hahah
Zen koan: If a pro drops in on a pro is it a drop in at all?
thank god they've all been up there making cunts of themselves and not down here.
It's Swellnet's fancy C-bomb removal post!
Video footage subponeaed to the Court of Public Opinion: Would Wade have made it?
Slotted all the way, exiting with that little puff of spit down the line
I reckon so.
Well Wade certainly wasnt going to make that with occy doing his thing.....wonder when the pros will fuk off or are they marooned here in aus......wow just saw the vid,hows the poor crunt paddling out with wade comin at him on one side and occy falling on him from above......recon wade would have made it ...
Yep...And with a nice Beard wash Spit at the end
Absolutely he would have.
He who hesitates is lost
Easily Stu! Pause the clip when Occy is falling out of the lip and look where Wade is. Piece of piss
Oi, that's 'your honour' to you.
Maybe could run a month long series WOTD of people being shamed for being pricks in the water, like an Oz music month, Oz drop in month.
I remember hearing a story years ago that Occy was out in the lineup and being a greedy fuck. Repeatedly paddling to the inside.
Apparently he tried it once more and another fella got jack and started dropping in . Occy yelled out “ Occy’s wave ! “ , but the fella just faded him and they went over the falls together.
Occy came up spluttering and said “ Didn’t you hear me ? I called Occy’s wave !” And the fella replied “ Who the fuck is Occy ? “
Supposedly. Allegedly. Apparently.
Got to say that yesterday’s shot of Steve Cox has inspired me to recommit to the stretching / Flexibility and yoga routine which I have unfortunately overlooked the last little while due to being way too busy ( lazy ).
Thank you Mr Cox.
Nice, perhaps add it into the 'don't call it a comeback thread' :)
Now, that would have been a very unrewarding wave for Wade. Vid footage, all over in about 2 seconds. Snapper as sacrificial anode to preserve other places...
You see it every day in this place. Kook takes off way too deep. Calls the wave. Never gonna make it. Reasonable surfer takes off from a more makeable spot. Third guy drops in thinking guy two is dropping in anyway. All three fall. Wave is wasted. Time and time again.
Occ probably didn't recognise Wade. Just another hipster. Bad eyesight. It was too late to pull back anyway. The he did recognise him, tried to pull back and got planted. A good wave was wasted.
Don't start me on airs. A failed air attempt should be a compulsory swim to the beach then paddle out again.
another story on Occy , a young mate ( not a kook ) from down our way move up there , got burnt a couple of times had words with occy ,waited for him on the beach,occy finally can in but as he said brought 2 minders with him,mates only a little fella but built like a brick shithouse. had no trouble since.
Occ. Rhymes with cock.
