HEAVY!!!! Unfortunately not in my lifetime. Over 40, with 2 kids to raise. Can you say risk vs. reward. All the credit in the world to the guys that surf there. Real Men on Real Waves.

All you haters like Shorey and Catfish (yes a bottom feeding slimebag) just go and check out the opening wave on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE7dbuam59U In some ways I am stoked that bodyboarders cant typically tow-in due to a lack of shock absorbing stand up legs, another reason that makes landing the airs so hard on the ribs. Keeping it real.. I suggest everyone else tries the same

On second thought, I think this wave can be easily paddled into on a bodyboard. Or maybe I'm just saying that because I would just love to see one of Shorey's bodyboarding buddies going over the falls on next weeks home page.

Ok twats.... look up shippies on the tube and see some footage of this beast. It's near bloody impossible to paddle into this, no one does it. The wave doesn't look that big as its coming but the guts get ripped out of the front it and your left wondering wtf?!?!?!

Shorey maybe your little sponge friends can paddle into the shoulder of this wave, but if you have ever seen the peak break at this size would know that this wave slaughters anyTHING that paddles into it on the peak

Er hello Braille-lovers, there is actually a photo above all these comments, please look at the state of that thing. I’m not sure we should be withholding respect just because he didn’t paddle in. I’d buy him a pint for surfing that wave (of course he would have to wait until happy hour…what? …There is still a recession on)

Go paddle something

I am very sorry for my fellow South African's behaviour, he doesn't know any better. He was born and raised on a small ocean town, but he managed to stay in school and do good in University, and now he got a job he couldn't turn down in Pretoria, and now he is a landlocked grumpy old man.

Yeah Bertus ALL of us, we are all the same, generally. We all have a big national meeting where we all ensure that we all do exactly the same thing so as not to confuse anybody and to avoid individuality and being different. I once read this cool saying, "you all laugh at me for being different well I laugh at you because you are all the same".

boombox Aug 14, 2009 Rating: 5

Yeh it looks pretty easy to paddle in, make the air drop, set a bottom turn, hold the line, and hope you have enough speed to make the wave, all with no straps...yeh easy stuff. I dont think you can comment here until you have paddled into and then you can give us your opinion as to how easy it is to paddle this, until then, you got an issue? heres a tissue.

Shorey's avatar

Shorey Aug 13, 2009 Rating: -1

Whats up with ALL you pommies, always generally generalising, well at least thats what generally happens, generally. Catfish does have a point though I think, these days guys seem to whip out the ski too easily. Only waves like Chopes (when its BIG) etc should be towed into, i.e. when you cant paddle fast enough to make the wave. I am not saying this guy shouldnt have towed, i know squat about the break other than its pretty damn heavy. I am pretty sure most of the Aussie spongers would have paddle at this size.

catfish's avatar

catfish Aug 13, 2009 Rating: 0

Lol, point taken but you shouldnt have to tow that. You tow when its not surfable? Whewn the wave is too fast? Look at what Towner paddled into a few years back it was bigger than that and had way way more respect making that wave other than these guys whipping around on scooters going wow look how core I am. weeee weeee Any arse with half a pencil in his pocket can do that. Aussie's to get schoooled by New Zealand on sat!

I dont comment about mens balls, sorry man. I have seen spongers paddling into waves like this one. Ever tried towing on a sponge, a lot harder to do than on a surfboard. One hand on the board, one hand on the rope. No doubt this takes far braver men than me to do, towing or not.
