Watch: Andrew Mooney's outback comeback

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

If it's been a while since you've heard the name Andrew Mooney then you can chalk it up to injury. In 2016 the Central Coast rock jockey buckled his ankle surfing in Indonesia, yet despite the severity of the injury he managed to surf the infamous Red Bull Cape Fear event before taking ten months off to recuperate.

When the convalescence was over he packed up his wagon to spend time on a limestone coast.

The following clip covers all the above, pre-injury and post.
