"This has been the most amazing Search trip in 20 years," Tom Curren said after his groundbreaking river tube.
Though tidal surges occur semi-regularly on the Seven Ghosts, a surge strong enough to create the waves captured this March by Santos, Brady, Larronde, Anwar, and Curren is extremely rare.
Under the guidance and expertise of Frenchman Antony Colas, who first surfed and documented Seven Ghosts in September 2010, the Rip Curl Search team chose the week of March 18-24, as it coincided with the Spring Equinox and tidal swings which occur only once every 19 years. As it turned out, Colas could not have been more spot-on.
