the mercury: surfer's shipstern rescue

Posted in News, Local News

Local lad Simon Treweek was dealt a stock standard beat down at Stern yesterday and surfaced unscathed but the wave that followed sent him into the boulders and split him open.

The result? A flight home in the Westpac Rescue helicopter

movement issue 34

Posted in News, Local News

It doesn't get much better than this. Charles Ward scores both wave and cover of a lifetime on Issue 34 of Movement

It makes you feel proud to say you're a Tasmanian when you see shit like this.

Here's a sample of what the guys at Movement had to say

It's safe to say that the Tasmanian youngsters splayed over the pages of this very issue are onto something big. In the little triangle of space known as the target of over-used and largely unjustified inbred jokes and mainland blow-ins at a right-hander at the bottom of a cliff, four buddies are making the most, and then some, of the raw swells that hit their parts with magnificent force and then peter off as lumps travel up the coast and reach us at a quarter of the size if we're lucky.

South Coast - Mixed

Posted in Gallery, Archives, Originals

This is a pretty big gallery but I think it's worth scrolling through and enjoying some photo's of fairly good quality waves.

There is also the first known photo of Shipstern Bluff to be put on the internet. I scanned the photo back in 1996 after I borrowed it from South Arm Surf. Looks like a rather soid day!

Some of the breaks featured in this gallery are:

  • Blackmans Bay
  • Cliffy Reef
  • Seven Mile Point
  • Remarks
  • Clifton Beach

fluidzone: tasman treats

Posted in News, Local News

Matt Tildesley showing off a bunch of shots from Stern on Fluidzone.

Check it out here.

This is what they had to say

While the Eastern seaboard remains quite subdued from the usual winter storm tracks, Tasmania has had a cracking winter with clean swells backed with favourable winds.

Last week a bunch of die hards took to the ocean for some slab time. Local sharp shooter Matt Tildesley was on hand giving us a fresh view. Seems that Matt being the tricky lad he is has extended his camera on a rig on a pole to wave over the heaving lips from the safety of a shoulder.

Last time we checked the water temps were averaging 13 degrees, so our warmest hats go off to you also for your performance and dedication.
