Caffeine is Key at Shipstern Bluff

James McKean on the Shipstern Express, emboldened by hot coffee and nerves of stainless steel. Having said this, the coffee poured in the opening sequence looks fairly weak.

“I remember a couple of winters back after bobbing around out behind the bluff for most of the day, near hypothermic and Iain ‘wombat’ Chalmers pulled out a thermos of hot black coffee. To say it was good would be an understatement. Autumn is historically and good time of year to be a surfer in Tassie. However, last season at Shipsterns was very slow. To see the swells we have so far this year is a welcome change. I think we are all waiting and hoping for bigger things to come, as the water gets colder in 2014.”
