Friday 13th at Deadmans

Surf wise it was going off today so at lunch I biked over to Deadmans, I’ve never seen anyone surf it before. The video makes the waves look smaller than they actually were. It’s on these sort of days where I think a sandwich and a camera are better than a wetsuit and a surfboard. The video doesn’t really do the size of the waves justice.

First up is a guy getting a nice barrel, the second part of the video shows a guy who paddled off the rocks at the wrong moment as the biggest set I saw came through, he luckily made it through all of the waves so close to the rocks it must have been scary (I know I was scared for him). Whilst at the same time another guy who doesn’t quite make the take off gets smashed and then smashed again by the next wave and loses his board!
