Bears line up and dude, thanks for the board bits!

I went down south surfing with a mate on the weekend and the conditions were pretty good albeit somewhat knarley!

I got a few nice waves, but I think Bears came up on top on my tally. Bears certainly won hands down with this guy as he broke his board on the very first wave!

It was pretty cute watching the little tacker running up with the other half of his board saying ‘hey mister…here’s you board’!

    You certainly weren’t kidding about the “being flogged” bit!

    • Indeed Charlene…they look pretty from up top, but when you are underneath them…ouch!

      Need to shed some of the winter fat quickly to reduce the incidence of these floggings! πŸ™‚

  2. Looking nice in the bottom image there buddy πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Toneman and Flembotaruny! It is a pretty place and the line ups were looking pretty good. A bit straight yesterday though…Saturday was better with the swell coming more from the south.

  3. That is one evil wave, breaking his board, oh and almost tearing his wetsuit off as well πŸ™‚

    I love the sight of Bears in the last shot, beautiful.

    Like the wave in the bottom pic Mark, always wanted to capture one of those myself …. in a photo that is.

  5. Thanks Peter…I caught a few of those on Saturday…a couple on my feet but too many with my head…doh!

    Not thinking that is the right way to catch em though! πŸ™‚

    Hey Mark
    Just a board in half
    It could have been You, Me or Jordan the weekend before
    instead of that young body boarder
    bit too close, excuse the bit, bit !!!

  7. I love that Bears lineup shot Mark. Something magical about waves with those massive spray plumes isn’t there?
