This reef is my favourite joint in the whole world for watershots.
It's a decent right but it's the left that gives the real gold. The left however is fickle as hell. It's also one of the shortest waves I've ever witnessed.
It's one of the few places that's so shallow you don't even swim half the time, you just wander around in knee deep water hoping you don't get caught inside. As you can imagine when it's that shallow there's not exactly anywhere to run and hide.
Trying to swim under waves leaves you lying on the reef waiting for the whomp. It's actually a very good natural chiropractor. Good for smashing the kinks out of your spine. Also good for taking chunks out of waterhousings.
I got blown apart shooting their once with a pole-cam. The beating left me stuck on the bottom, entangled in kelp with both swim-fins blown off and the leash of the housing wrapped around me...
It was a bodyboard elbow leash, handy for stabilising unwieldy pole-cams. I did actually thing I was going to drown in two feet of water.
Obv's I didn't but it was frickin' scary.
In the thirteen years I've been shooting the joint I've given it as many names in the mags. From the original Kelpies to Boom Booms to Out Front and more. I can't til autumn to get back in there ... it's been far too long.
