Casa, don'tcha know that it was The Billabong Challenge that gave us American boyz a real look at Gnaraloo? Find yer~self an old vhs copy of that '95 comp where Sunny was bitchin' 'bout campin' + had to bail home, that same desolate place where a few heats later Rob Machado won, what was it, $20 G, and then please get back to us about your query, ok?

Depends on the swell angle, period and the size of the tides.

First wave I ever caught there I got pitched and back slammed on one of those big, mushroom shaped reef clumps that make the wave suck up like that.
Made me cry for mamma.

Yeah the music is killer. Just like the old 'bong videos with Yothu Yindi and the Celibate Rifles.

Songs are by the second song is Julian Cope - Sunspots

The other song is an aboriginal band I'm guessing Yothu Yindi or Warumpi

7am until 3pm is 8 hours. Occy sucks at math, but he can still do a great cutback! Ha ha!

Surfed it back in '94, scariest wave of my life hands down when its working proper the fun level drops and its more like why am I doing this? Its more like cheating death.
