Bug Surf Day


This past week Sydney was deluged by 5 days of apocalyptic storms as winter made its presence known.


Nice section at North Steyne

The only bright side out of this was when it eventually stopped, we were treated to some of the best surf conditions we have seen.

Hardcore surfers braved the gigantic swell and we went down to the beach a couple of times to witness the death-defying awesomeness.

In addition to the beach breaks being larger than normal, the Queenscliff bommie was breaking as well in epic fashion.

At one point on Sunday, there were 3 helicopters and 2 boats out searching for a missing surfer. We saw them pull a surfboard out of the water but no body. Hopefully the poor guy made it to shore.
