Last Friday saw great waves hitting right 'round the country, from South-east Queensland, down the whole Eastern Seaboard, across Vicco and South Oz, and up the whole surfable coast of West Oz. Yet despite the range of waves nowhere was as diametrically opposed to the essence of the day - Good Friday - as this place.
The Right in southern WA was positively evil: triple overhead, breaking as wide as it was high, and laying waste to anyone who put a foot a wrong, and even to those who didn't. The Right can pitch unpredictably and just letting go of the rope is to throw yourself at the mercy of the wave's weird contortions.
The surfers featured here are Chris Ross, Brad Norris, Mark Mathews, Ryan Hipwood, and ex-West Coast Eagle, Phil Reed.
Tim Bonython filmed the whole session for next season's Australian Surf Movie Festival. With killer sessions at Pedra Branca, Shippies and The Right already in the can next year's ASMF is shaping up to be one of the biggest festivals yet.
