Glad to see the footage in the clip: booger drop-ins, drop-ins and lotsa crew who know their way into a pit. It ain't uncrowded paradise.

Aussie legend, icon, cult figure, world champ, .. has made dropping in OK, and degraded the soul of surfing.

With all that power and influence, imagine the positives he could have created,

Instead:

What a legacy, what a contribution, what a fuckwit.

still at it too.... the old white water behind you take off and appearing like a dick outta the foam.. i possess one of the best ever videos of occy doing this recently to a mate of mine at pumping fun sized greenie through rainbow... she keeps her nerve, cuts back and back at him...sending him to the weeds.. he"s flapping some fish killers to try and keep in front of the white water but she keeps him off... then a dickhead mate of his drops in on my stoic buddy thinking she's burned sly dog occ... he gets off after being rightly told to fuck off... he's a bloody disgrace and definitely not a crowd favourite - not that he gives any fucks either way

Then I reckon the video's should also show the beatings that occur.
Would be great to see some of the "almost Pro's" on the Goldy cop a belting for a drop in .

There's little on the positive side of the ledger to say about this vid.

Shithouse behaviour.
Shithouse glorification of shit behaviour.
Shithouse music. Though probably a perfect choice in light of the above two points.

0.5/10.

Nothing like the wave I had the pleasure of surfing like that in '95. Though I was forced to share a barrel with a lidder who was quite surprised to see me exit next to him.

Northpoint is such an amazing wave. I have very fond memories of surfing it late 80s/early 90s staying at C Bay, 12 yrs old or so surfing with family & friends & it's only exposure to the outside world was through Mark Warren's surfing Atlas. The place was so quite & we would surf with the Cato brothers. Cayden was super friendly to me & my mate coming down from Perth - James ripped back then. When it was firing I remember thinking waves can't get much better than this even in Indo (had never been there). Dennis Lilly (cricketer) scored on his waveski & created havoc but he did a good job. So uncrowded, so peaceful & a groms heaven. The world has moved on but damn good memories of this place

Dennis L has always run the right type of mo for a goat-boater.

Yep, back when waveskis were a thing. I remember one session in particular, absolutely perfect 8 foot, offshore, blue sky. Dennis would be picking up the outside bombs & paddling in from way further out & even got barrelled on the thing (but got smashed from memory). A little controversial but there was enough to go around :)

Was he singing "Carmon Aussie, c'mon c'mon..." as he was paddling into a set?

I don't remember him being super chatty in the lineup, nor singing Cmon Aussie. He would just pick-off the bombs & then paddle past everyone to bag the next set. I was cool with it as those 8 footers were pretty scary as a grom (hehe, they still are). I remember James Cato & one of his mates sitting alot deeper. Dennis was sitting wider with the rest of us mortals, but just alot further out. James & his mate were catching them from what I can remember to be where Robbo catches them today. There were some crazy crazy perfect deep barrels going down. No cameras. No internet. This session in particular wasn't empty, say 15 guys on it. But most days during the week you could paddle out at 7am & surf for an hour or 2 with just friends, & same in the arvo. Take me back!! :)

That's actually in the scorebook from an ashes test back in the 80's.

I remember Dennis on his goatboat around C Bay in the 80s as well, South Point too. He was a weird mix of awkward kook on the worst of all surfcraft, along with plenty of world class fast bowler attitude. I was one of the crowd chanting his name at the WACA a few years earlier, but my opinion of him slipped a fair way after a couple of hours sharing the surf, he was hungry and dangerous!
