Watch: The Terror Vault // Part 1 - Cape Solander
Tim Bonython's been productive during his COVID downtime, though not filming new swells, as he'd prefer, but sorting through years of old footage and compiling it into a new series: The Terror Vault.
It's not the glory rides he's chosen to highlight, but the opposite, the rides where the wave has its way and the surfer ends up like a bug on the windscreen.
Part 1 is Cape Solander, which, even when it's perfect, is a roll of the dice. For every completed ride - and Tim includes a few in here, see Mark Mathews, Jug, and Mooney who all make it to the channel - there's many more that cop a gruesome swatting.
