Watch: Gold Coast // East by south-east

Stu Nettle
Reels

Two mornings on the Goldy: Thursday with a south-east swell brushing the points, and Saturday when an easterly infeed from the same low pressure system straightened the swell up.

Surfers, at least those recognised, include James Lewis, Toby Johnston, Shaun Martin, Chris Bennetts, while the goofy styling on the red and white rhino is evergreen Guy Ormerod.

Footage very good, went to mute on the music. Liked the inclusion of rhino guy.

Guy Ormerod. There's a blast from the past!

Great to see locals of his vintage still getting the good ones and still styling.

Who's the big bald guy on the longish board at 1:25? Is it Guy Ormerod? He's seriously ripping. Made my day.

Yep thats Guy..
When Guy was a Grom he didnt own a wetsuit and those winter westerley winds were cold
so he wrote a letter to Ripcurl saying it was bad Karma to let a young Grom Freeze....so they sent him one..

Claw Warbrick.

The bloke knows how to market his product as good as anyone. R.C would have got their money back on that move in spades.
