2nd one here in WA within 3 months!

The last attack was less than 50 kilometres away from here at Conspicuous Cliffs.
This time it was Gracetown again. So unfair that a small community, with such a lovely name, could be subjected to so much trauma. In 1996, 5 adults and 4 children were killed in a cliff collapse whilst watching an inter-school surf competition and there was an earlier shark attack back in 2004.
I have to say I do worry at times, when lying on a mat, that I look far more like a tasty seal than if I were on a surfboard. In reality though, if you happen to be in the wrong spot at the wrong time, it is probably completely immaterial.

More 'chopes

and a guy who does have the skill and the guts to give it a shot on a bloody SUP for god's sake! Yeh I know Laird has been there before but ya don't get the wipe out shot!

Well worth double clicking on to see the full size image which shows so clearly the setup at Teahupoo! Like many of those you can see sitting on the shoulder, it would be enough of a buzz to merely watch and wonder at those that have the ability and courage to ride it.

Incredible, truly incredible wave riding!

I have seen quite a bit of Derek's work, but I have not seen those big sideways power slides before. Awesome! Enjoy!
