Another North Coast shark encounter

Posted in Local News, News

A group of fishermen had an amazing encounter on the weekend when their boat grabbed the attention of a 4.5metre great white shark. The shark was approximately 50km's off Port Sorell so you can sleep easy.

The old mini dv tapes were recently rediscovered and this session was amongst them. This is episode 1 of the Frozen Hole Archives.

Filmed by Joe Hutchins back when it was still a novelty to have pro's visit Tassie at an isolated beach break on the south coast.

Ryan Hardy scored a Riptide cover from this session with an off the lip reverse. You'll know it when you see it.

I'll dig out my copy of the magazine when I get a chance and throw it up on the site.

Here's a crappy little clip I put together at the end of last Summer. I think it was the last surf I had because I had my ear drilled. Filmed with the GoPro HD in some fun 1 footers at Rebounds.

I've just upgraded the the GoPro Hero2 camera and given the all clear from the doctor to get back in the water so hopefully I can get out in some waves a tad bigger than this over the next few weeks!

If you've got some GoPro clips up on the net leave a link in the comments below or send us a link and we'll throw it up on the site.

A heads up for the North Coast lads if you plan on jumping in the water around Rocky Cape over the Christmas period. A humpback whale carcass which was towed out to sea has washed up again. The local seal colony has bailed because of the large number of great whites coming in for a free feed.

21 Years of foam

Posted in Local News, News

This is what 21 years of boards look like. It's a collection of mostly boards I have ridden and a few acquired from Cashies, my brothers and one belongs to John Bennett.

I'll take some better quality photos over the next few weeks. So if there is a board in the quiver that you'd like to see or know more about just let me know.
