Swimming with giants

As the world tour rolls into town, we get a glimpse into what high-performance surfing looks like, on our dribbly Sydney beach breaks. Watch

Narrabeen has sand, the river mouth is open, but the south swell direction doesn’t favour the famous lefts and puts on a very short, semi-close right. It’s small, but the worlds best sure do put on a show. Swimming with all the big names was a great experience as they warm-up for their heats.

The speed that these surfers create, from nothing…and the sections they hit, are pretty jaw-dropping. Italo IS incredible. You know that. He aired over a section right in front of me that looked unmakeable. It looked like childs play to him. Italo will be very hard to beat with these Brazilian-like conditions.

I’m hoping they get some big swell in the Western Australian leg of this tour, just to make it a bit more even and not only about the aerials and one turn waves.

Back to our local, Bondi, we’re blessed with some amazing banks and waves. Like most Sydney beaches, there’s something out there to enjoy – as the sunshine is just icy on the cake. Enjoy Autumn good times.
