So jealous.

 

Thats one thing i love about fishing secluded spots. the waves you find.

 

Saying that most guys i fish with dont surf. Ill post up a picture of a Southern WA beach we found while chasing salmon.

 

Pilbara Brad, the island is intense. my brother is there every year for the Challenge.

Sat and watched EPs going

Sat and watched EPs going off many years ago.  Too sick for me there.

 

Closest I got to Shark Island was probably Stanwell Tops, nice break with a killer view looking back up the hill.  Maybe Bulli too, is that somewhere around there?  Too long ago.

Haven't ridden a lid

Sat, 2010-09-25 09:23

for a few years now! Brings back memories......

 

I liked Shark Isalnd but very heavily populated - only rode there a few times. The "locals" were not the sharing type generally.

 

But for me, The Box down in Margs is perfection and there are a few secret spots further south that my mate and I used to hit up.

 

I still have my Mike Stewart 7-7 somewhere in the house.
