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.
Great isn't it, and yes Zen.
I heart all #1 swellnet WOTD photos...insane shots guys!
Me too. Today’s in particular. Something to dream about from a locked down Melbourne.
I really loved Sunday's WOTD - 'frozen in time'. Then checked out Marcus' website and, some really cool stuff there, and bringing back great memories of the landscape and people from my short time in that part of the world. Love your work Marcus.
Pete. Again. Epic stuff
Wow. Didn't even look at the watermark and thought straight to myself, that's a cracking shot.
Another beauty Mr. Jovic- a lot going on there.
Where is it?
Phenomenal today. Victory at sea conditions.
That whitewash ain't white and fluffy and harmless. It's angry.
It’s Down South of Down South I’d venture.
Ha, looks south , awesome shot and hats off to Zac.
Unreal. That foam zone is mental.
Sweet Jesus . Just take a look at that thing. There’s not many places in surfing I’d rather not be than in Tyler Holmer-Cross’ shoes at that moment .
Goes to show how normalised the brutality of slab riding is getting when an amazing photo like that is a bit of a throwaway digital shot instead of a massive poster on the walls of every surfer’s bedroom as it would have been had the photo been taken 40 years ago.
Shout out to Noah Hassett with his shot at the same spot a few days ago. I met the Hassett family in West Sumbawa a few years ago when Noah was just a grommet. Good people and looks like Noah has become a fine and committed surfer . Power to him. Go the young guns !
Looks like Tyler has lost all his speed and waving farewell to the guys in the boat.
That’s some House of Pain shit about to go down.
Not a single comment on Old Man Margo's contortion yesterday?
Yep I tried to refrain from making another comment on Margo, but fuck it what ever he's doing there is all power. The wall on the Shippies beast is solid green vertical glass, it'd be good to know if he got through.
I reckon today's one is deceiving. Looks like he has no speed, but look where his board trail ends - he's just air dropped about 10 feet. He's possibly flying along, photo just caught him as he's hit the flats.
Yep , Margo is relentless in his attack. He’s blown that lip to smithereens .
I didn’t rate the shot as high after assuming it was a tow-in from the track of his wake.
We need to invent an onomatopoeic word to describe Margo’s ridiculously destructive lip assault.
Margo's renaissance is a thing of beauty.
Holy smokes, that's a turn! The world needs all the Margo it can get, I reckon.
Soo good eh!
I couldn't let the day end without belatedly mentioning Ollie Brennan's shot today and pondering the absolute arse kicking that unidentified charger is about to go through.
Or he made it...
"Or he made it..."
Ha ha ha
Ever the optimist Stu.
Haha I keep looking at it thinking is that guy really in that position where he is about to get totally fucked over. My eyes ain't what they used to be, but it sure looks like it. Ouch!
We just found out it's Samson Coulter AKA Pikelet from the film adaptation of 'Breath'.
Sando would be proud.
Pikelet's gonna get pancaked.
Where is it?
Pancakes on the Rocks?

I finally got around to watching Breath recently. Enjoyed it a lot. Especially Pikelet.
Assuming Ollie kept the shutter button down. Love to see the rest.
Great shot. I reckon the last thing he saw before face met face woulda been worth the price of admission. Riding high!
Smythy! The Peter Jovic of the South coast! Good one.
Nice one. Is it South Coast though? I'm not convinced. Mates think it is.
I didn't guess this one, threw me. It's South.
That could be anywhere on the east coast on any good day.
Yes but day of days on the almost coast!
The moments you capture Peter. Wow. Today’s is absolutely stunning. Black, glass, oily art. Thanks for sharing.
PS- loved the ‘granite coast’ beachie the other day. My idea of perfection
The best way to check how good the surf is, is by what time the WOTD goes up.
Ha! I saw it up very early and was wondering about the timing. Another cracker from PJ.
You're onto me Shorey. If I know I'm leaving real early I'll program it the night before, but if I'm up at the regular time I'll wait and see if anything's come in overnight.
So this morning's WOTD was up real early, as was I, and so unfortunately was the wind.
Such a good shot you had to put it up super early.
More epicness from Pete Jovic.
You could fit a whole herd of cows in that barrel!!!
Almost looks like haze from a bushfire in the background.
I was about to ask for a hint of where it was but thanks AA. That's confirmed it for me.
First glance i thought that was an old pic of Jason Buttonshaw.
I thought that too Indo.
Iconic Martin Tullemans (spelling?) shot of Butto at D'Bah. One of my all time faves.
Same here, the blond hair, stance, fluro colours and the wave itself.
Was going to say exactly the same thing, pic is in the Atlas of Australian surfing I think?? Biomechanics similarity uncanny
