In Natural Flow
Hey DB, I remember that comp at North Steyne clearly. It was incredible for it's time. I have it on VHS but I'm not sure if can find the old box with the old vids. Good luck in your search for a quality copy.
This 'll show my age..
Green Iguana :
Remember having a mate lend it to me on VHS and I watched it many times over.
Better later to comment than never...
Apocalypse Now (!)
Morning of the earth
It's tiny and onshore here.
That just makes Mason Ho's latest clip all the more impressive.
It's all there - Big waves , small waves , inctredible pits and tricks , rock dodging and a wide variety of boards ridden.
The fella has a crazy loose approach to ever kind of wave and manoeuvre.
Cool as Fonzie.
Just watched it Blowin,
He's mental. Such a good surfer to watch
Ha ..just watched it 3 times..Pipe on that big board..just playing !
He's fucked isn't he Udo, so good. Surfs anything, anywhere
Let's not forget uncle Derek's throaty little section ridden behind his nephew.
The man's still got it.
so fun,bloke knows how to have a good time alright.
Just found this.
Loads of fun and unbelievable performances.
I just happened to share a spot with a few of these fellas not that long ago. Not being aware of their deal I was impressed with their abilities and the fact that they're about the nicest crew you'll ever share a line up with.
Big thumbs up for the charging and the creativity of their riding . I'd never seen a few of their antics previously . Last wave is cool as fuck.
Needs Essentials are keen to send me on a couple of Trips
Good on you Scanno Yew !
Be great to see Loz back doing some big wave trips but I'd hate to see him grinding on the 'QS.
Still defies belief no surf company will support him...especially in today's big wave environment.
Nice find Groundswell
It’s a fucking disgrace who major surf companies throw coin at, then you’ve got Laurie doing a tiling apprenticeship at 30 getting about $450 a week. The guy’s still one of the best big wave surfers Australia has ever seen. What a joke
I was fortunate enough to score an empty reef to myself for over an hour this morning. The lack of fellow surfers was not a blessing merely by allowing me to catch any wave I wanted , it also permitted me the ultimate indulgence of allowing myself to fantasize for a split second that my flailing arms and half turns were in any way reminiscent of the yellow steamer clad genius slicing off the bottom as well as anyone in the history of surfing.
No witnesses equals no brutal contradictions of my version of events.
So yeah , I was surfing just like this a couple of hours ago....and no one can say that I didn’t.

Ha Ha! Copyright! If your quick Swellnet have trailer on Homepage..( Surf scene is at end)
If not there's plenty of gifs around. 'Jaws' was scary enough never going surfing ARGH!
wow, Blowin, you just answered something that has been unanswered for me for years. In a time long long ago I watched this guy ripping and I thought I had stumbled across Tom Curren doing a solo surf trip, but when up closer I could see that it wasn't him and he had an aussie accent. All this time I wondered about this mysterious ripper and now I know who it was.
Had to be seen to be believed, nothing's changed brutha, nuttin's changed

I normally detest the Air Moves but Dig seeing an Ol Boy doing them...some nice solid turns in there also.
Dick Hoole's unseen footage of Burleigh Heads mid 1970s / Tracksmag.
I really enjoyed this :
Oscar Langburne is to Craig Anderson as Silverchair are to Nirvana.
Inspired continuance or derived homage ?
Who gives a fuck , they were both great.
I like the tempo of this young bloke’s surfing.
Surfs great, wonder how long he’ll keep trying to be Craig Anderson though?
Having complete downtime this past week I’ve been hammering YouTube.
2 standouts :
This is living - Koa Rothman presents his envy worthy life for your entertainment. Very likeable, mellow cat with a surfing style to match . Loves a big , hollow wave . Particularly lefthanders. The polar opposite to JOB and Bruce Irons. Quiet dude that lets his surfing do the talking.
I’ve watched them all.
Thank you Koa for making my housebound week bearable.
Youngblood’s Spearfishing - A West Oz bloke , his family , mates and their girls cruise around North West WA catching fish and generally living large. Some of the commentary is cringeworthy and the drone deployment would have me spearing a human if I was in the general area myself , but it’s a pretty cool watch with some amazing sights and just some good healthy living amongst a beautiful part of the world.
The crew pull it off and convey their stoke and passion pretty well.
Also thanks to the YBS team for elevating my life beyond the confines of the house in my time of need. Still a few episodes to go.
kai mana - vimeo
kai mana henry - this bloke rips for a big chunky man...love the powerful raw edge to him.
couldnt get the link to work goofyfoot..
I'll let you off this one mate
Sea of Darkness — has anybody seen it? Is it available anywhere (legal or not-so)?
Seen it, it's unreal and well worth trying to get a hold of. Not easy though.
Watched it at G Land.
It’s pretty good.
Any clues as to how I can find it? Searched high and low and absolutely skunked every time... seems as mythical as the Bells Beach 50 year storm
Mine came from the G'land camp. Someone pirated heaps of the camp copy and I got one.
Sea of darkness, I got a copy, if u live on northern beaches u can copy mine! Matter of fact,I'm gonna watch it now,never gets old!
Watched that Momentum generation the other day, i wasn't expecting that much, i thought it would just be like the Taylor Steele videos, but it's nothing like them.
It's more a documentary style movie with minimal surfing footage but is really good and well done and it painted a picture of things much different to what i had pictured and actually made me look at a few surfers of that generation differently.
I think it's a must view for any surfer that followed professional surfing in any way during that era (and i barely did) although i did watch the taylor steele movies a lot before surfing.
I am a big fan of Kelly, but possibly the only complaint the Kelly haters will have is that in a sense its also a bit of a docco about Kellys rise to fame and domination, but well that was the 90s i guess and its only part of the movie the movie covers every surfer from that Momentum generation and all kinds of different aspects, even the music.
You can view it for free on Popcorntime
Lottolonglong; yeah mate, I'm in Manly. Would happily trade a 6 pack for a burnt copy!
Let me know. Cheers
Watched the Momentum Generation docco over the weekend and thought it was, well... a bit fluffy really. I grew up watching all my older bro's Taylor Steele videos and absolutely loved that whole crew. But the movie was just boring. A story about a bunch of talented, successful surfers, who got sick of competing and then went on to become.... talented, successful free surfers?
Not much actual surfing footage and the reunion at the end was about 5 mins of a bad drone angle filming them surf 3ft pipe. Could have done a lot more I thought.
What I really liked was the Todd Chesser story. Would love a full docco on that guy. Seemed very underrated as a big wave surfer and really different from the rest of the guys in the surfing spotlight at that time.

Tell me about it, I’ve been looking to get my hands on a copy for donkeys to no avail. If you score one you’ve done well!
Such a ripper. I’d rather watch this than 90 percent of men’s surfing. Finally a return to backhand BELTS rather than hits focussed on finesse and releasing the fins.
Keep the fins in the water , bury the rail and destroy the lip . Don’t just dance on it.
Whatever . Each to their own . But give me backhand belts like Occy , Bobby Martinez and Caroline Marks every day of the week .
Thanks for the link blowin. she is a serious surfer
The young lady's ripping, strong as agree love the backhand hits
I loved 9 lives...but my first surf movie was "The Angry Sea" by John Severson in the 60's ...Got me hooked.

My old man once told me that he appeared uncredited in a film from the 70s called "A Winters Tale". I think the segment was shot at either South Avalon or L.A. Has anyone ever seen it? I'd love to track a copy down.
Here's 'A Winter's Tale - Part 2'. The fiest section filmed on the NB:
