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.”
