Watch: Noosa in the raw
This swell was never gonna be a marathon, not with the way Uesi bobbed out from beyond New Cal and then dropped like a yo yo. It was always going to be a matter of gettin' in and gettin' er done, and with a small window of opportunity the crowds at the few places handling the swell would be bad. Worse than usual.
Anyone paddling out at Noosa knew that in advance - ain't no excuse for naivety. But there's also no excuse for some of the drop ins on display.
Enough of the negatives, this vid is raw and shaky but there's enough solid makeable barrels to keep your spirit soaring.
