Sth Straddie's a powerful wave that picks up any swell available mate .... and by the way , when was the last time you got a stand-up tube when it was 3ft ? plus the guy might've been a kook too ....

love this shot, it's one of those glimpses you get as you shoot over the shoulder whilst hoping there is another couple of set waves behind!
