Coastal Watch forecaster Ben McCartney made an early prediction of large waves and light winds heading for Western Australia on Saturday 13th September.
The big wave, known as Cow Bombie off Gracetown is located 2km out to sea and is fully exposed to the elements. The condition and forecast looked ideal for paddle surfing. Visser’s TV Series is currently on hold for the final project, so there was no better way to enjoy a break from production with a decent sized swell!
Mark's been having a great time testing out the quality of surf accessories from Komunity Project and their standard is beyond compare. These products are designed by surfers (including 11x World Champion, Kelly Slater) with innovative details that make these products really stand out.
For example, the Komunity leg-rope has a new invention called ‘the worm’ which is a simple hard plastic device that helps thread the leg-rope through the plug on the board. Every surfer knows this can be a time consuming process and this simple device is magic.
All the action was out on the water last week in Fiji. Pro surfers were there to compete in the ASP Women’s WCT event and some of the WCT guys showed up early when a solid SSW swell arrived at Cloudbreak. There was a flurry of film crews capturing every moment on the water for a new Samsung ad and Korean Documentary - ‘brought to you by Samsung’.
