Go here West Oz time for daily live coverage of the big one. Today was ‘brown underpants’ day and only for the experienced – described as the biggest and most challenging waves ever surfed in a contest in Australia – 15-18 ft Margs. Its scary at 6ft, its a nightmare after that so these were very brave men!
Bells Beach 1981 was pretty wild… to beat that it was a hell of a day!
All surfers out there ought to check it out over the next few days – the swell is dropping but its still BIG. (The feed is pretty good on broadband)
