Tama was cranking last week and while we were all frothing over it, so was 10x World Champ Kelly Slater and sparring partner Taj Burow. The pros also hit up Ours and by all reports they were charging like mad! Bill Morris snapped some shots of Ours on fire, there is a funny shot of Richie Vas who was sporting the latest accessory trend with a cast on his dislocated elbow, and Mark Matthews showed us why he is a leader in big wave surfing.
As most of you have probably seen in the headlines, there was a serious rescue at Bronte during the week – see the story featured. A massive effort by all involved especially Richard Freeman and Mouse from the Lifeguards. A guy down the South Coast wasn't as lucky, a surfer who went for a quick dip in the heavy swell and who has served as a reminder to be always alert. If the swell is big and you are not a strong swimmer or you're having an off day – enjoy the action from the sand.
We will have some waves around all week, Wednesday could be good ahead of a fresh South swell on Thursday. Enjoy, stay safe!
