The Once-in-a-lifetime Swell
Publicerad torsdag 10 mars 2011 av RedaxInnehåll / Filmer



Om du någonsin scorat surf på ett ovanligt stormswell eller uppskattar smackande tunga beachbreak-tubar kommer du att gilla det här... Taj Burrow & Co lyckas pricka in ett cyklonswell från "fel" riktning på Australiens västkust.

Looks like fullon Injidup carparks (between Yallingup and Margarets, SW Aust)...these guys make it look easy, most of us mortals would get pitched on the first take-off, get caught inside by the following 6-8 waves of the set and then gladly get washed up on the beach with a wettie full of sand...scary shit.

Wow man such a new world with tow-in surfing, so many opportunities on that coast, is Mitch's Rock way down the beach past P-break? thought those massive beachbreaks were only for foolhardy dolphins! have heard of guys getting towed in to waves on Cowaramup reef, few kms off Guillotines, you heard any stories from out there? Have fantasy images in my head of that place after sitting out in the lineup at Guillos many a moon ago, waiting in a lull and seeing white masses on the horizon....the day you're talking about must have meant freight train barrels at North Point....

all sounds unreal, looking forward to getting back there and going for a few exploratory treks along the coast, not that I'd be taking on any of these furious breaks! know your limits and respect the mother's power and all that, but give me a classic sunset session at Contos and then a beer round the fire.......
Wildest I've seen North Point was the final day, Sunday, of the first Margaret River thriller in 1987 I think. A new front was cming thru and the wind shifted NW, big lumpy washing machine Margarets (getting called a down south 15-18 ft, there's a foto of a windsurfer screaming in to shore with a mountain of whitewater behind him that's 1 1/2 times bigger than his mast!)) and if I remember right it was Mark Richards?? against Tom Curren, big sets closing out the bay between the point and the Box.....we took off to Gracetown and North Point was crazy. As kooks we paddled out and sat on the shoulder, heehee thinking we'd be ok there...of course the big closeout set came thru and that was us fucked...but later watched guys taking off about 150m further out and around the point than I'd ever seen, dropping into these huge walls and then pulling into huge standup barrels at least 15ft from top to bottom...one of those classic days....hope you get some good ones man.

hav you heard of the board ?

north point was big bigger than most days! and it's crankin! suddn'ly this cleanup set, pretty sure I was dodging the same set at the whomb cause this fucking set was twice as big as the normal ones. this set cleant up every one at north point! just when people got back out this big boil appears and an old single fin full with barnicles popps up to the surface! one of the old boys claims it straight away reackon he lost it in the 80's so it been stucked in the reef for 25 years! no one really know if it was the blokes board or if he was just a quick thinker. but fuck that place is mental!
