yea this is a pretty sick drop but when you watch a clip of this wave it sections quite a bit you just see alot of people riding closeout with the odd peach rileys is far superior to this watch vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oge5NOm1fa8

Thought it was Rileys for a sec aswell. I think this has to be one of the sickest pictures even posted here. Would love to be able to take on something like this someday...but time is running out!

All so true about any other sport, that you`re not in to. Patriots yes. Keen sports fans yes too. But who gives a flying fuck about the rest of it? Why would ya?? Footie, soccer? football. Really? You can stick it up the rough end of a rag mans trumpet. I like the way he waited for you to take a leak. Old boots come to mind but no, not very. You should`ve said something odd, spat in his face and then put your finger in his eye up tp your knuckle. Tickle his brain. Shout at him, then leave. Not the dun-do everywhere but he`d have like that.

We spent a year in Australia and absolutely loved it: the surf, the landscapes, the space, the cosmopolitan cities, the diversity of people, the wildlife, the lifestyle and particularly the sydney coastline. A great place to visit. However the 'typical' Australian attitude to sportsmanship can be summed up by one experience me and the wife (then girlfriend) had in a restaurant in Randwick one night. Whilst we were enjoying our evening meal a fella on a neighbouring table must have picked up on the fact we were English because when I went to the toilet he got out of his seat and by the time I got back he was stood over my wife pointing his finger in her face and loudly berating her about how poor he thought the English cricket team were with plenty of expletives. My wife truly could not care less about any kind of sport - let alone cricket and at that time I didn't even care about cricket (I do have a passing interest now - ironically since my time in Oz where its often on telly). Thiss kind of over zealous and uninvited attack was commonplace in our time there. I don't know why the yank has had to post a comment on here though - it's not like them to get involved in other countries disputes.

Chill lads. This is about sharing surfing thrills, not a juvenile pissing contest. There are arseholes and decent people in every country. Anyone who makes it personal and stereotyping whole countries is missing the whole point of MSW.

After the watching the video poster, there is no way this wave is better than Mundaka. Not as hollow, not as sucky, not as long and not as makeable, yes it maybe more consistent, but not better. As for this comment 'The Poms would have to be the most unliked, ungracious, big mouth sporting fans in the world' who currently, holds the Ashes, who placed higher in last Olympics and who made the final of the last rugby world cup?

Typical arsehole Aussie comment? Geez, that's big coming from a Pom. The Poms would have to be the most unliked, ungracious, big mouth sporting fans in the world. Have a good look at yourself in the mirror princess.
