Maybe I should mention the guy who was almost bitten in half a few 100m from where this wave is breaking...

If you had an iota of sensitivity you would not have sent this pic in ! A great disservice to us that surf there and keep it uncrowded and enjoy it that way!!

Dunes uncrowded? You need a reality check my friend! Everybody knows about dunes anyways, it's far from being kept secret.

Instead you should have said it sharky over there.. much more effective.

Not trying to be funny or anything but what do you mean by "being watched from below'?

Kakapo! Nothing has changed since the 70's! One of the best waves in CT.
