If I told you that you could get barrelled whilst surfing Sydney Harbour I’m pretty sure you’d think I’m a can short of a six pack.
Well, you can. The right conditions 1) a raging, excessively large SE swell, 2) howling south wind and 3) 1 x Otis Carey = you’ll get tubed amongst the Sydney Ferries. Ok, so admittedly it’s no Teahuppo, but watching Otis bang out airs and tubes with the harbour bridge in the background is a nice change of scenery. Yes, it’s a novelty wave. Big-time. Shifty, weak and usually packed. What else do you do on a rainy Friday? I think we got the best of it this morning with a pulsing incoming tide…and the aid of the Manly Ferry wake (actually pictured in the background of a Otis air).
It’s raining all weekend as well. Come see us at the Aquabumps Gallery in Bondi then head to the State Library for the World Press Photo, Max Dupain’s 100 year exhibition and Sydney Morning Herald photos 1440 – all part of the EOS festival of Photography.
