This week I was given the opportunity to give one of the worlds heaviest waves a proper dig. What I experienced over the past 2 days is pretty indescribable but I'll do my best to put Luna Park into words.
From my very first look at the wave I knew I was out of my comfort zone, and also not prepared for what was lying at the bottom of those icy, windswept cliffs at the bottom of Australia. All the pictures and clips I'd seen of the place all suddenly seemed very misleading as I quickly asked 'is this low tide?' to which the reply came 'Nah its actually high in 20 minutes!'
The wave comes out of deep, deep water before squeezing itself through a gap in outer reefs and then just unloading its guts onto a knee deep shelf. I have never felt so deceived by media in my life. You could honestly kneel on the reef and your head would still be above water, but let's not forget.........
