This reefbreak on the South Coast of New South Wales is another of those that can be easy to become desensitised to. Happens to the best of ’em – Pipeline, Teahupo’o, Shark Island, Aussie Pipe… I think a good portion of us can admit to at least once having to remind ourselves of the insane perfection or mutant heaviness we’re staring at after about the three-minute mark of a clip on one of said waves.
And on that note, here are some more shots of a wave that’s been photographed a million times! But seriously, there’s a reason why waves like this one are documented so frequently, and this one in particular is as conducive to getting airborne on a bodyboard as any in the world.
