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.

Reckon I know that wave pretty darn good mostly from my early years. Like everywhere down that way it's a different trip now mostly long boards, timber changing platforms and crowds++. I guess there must be some about that still remember the empty waves, the old dunny block and the direct road (potted holed filled bush track) pass the old tip now golf course and million dollar plus houses. Learnt to surf there, had my first joint there and plenty of good times with mates no longer here or no longer surfing due to ill health so its still special but in a somehow diminishing way. I go there still to honour what once was but only when its a good size to minimise the hassle and again mostly on the outer reefs and not the river mouth where this picture was taken.

Good pick up Guy. I didn't twig until I read your post. I remember the old road and the way in was a fun rally drive. We'd surf serious waves in the mornings and head there for a fun session in the arvo. Still go there with the longboard sometimes.

Absolutely love that wave. Went there after hearing from a bloke in town he'd paddled out and saw a GWS in the wave face in front of him! It's a pretty raw place.

Doesn't surprise me VJ! Currently a beached whale just around the corner and Parks have made it clear they aren't moving it. I'm not in any rush to chase a solo dawn session there any time soon haha.

I reckon today's just might be the same wave/place I most recently commented on but this time taken higher up than the high tide line at the river mouth .... perhaps maybe

Lovely pic nonetheless

Love the colour scheme and the feeling of down the line potential. Big board too. Given the perspective and that it is by Tim Bonython, is it Naz?
