Insane, but freeze the video at 0:14,and remember that every person in that crowd surfs better than you do. I really like the musical track behind it.

I think that wave's so heavy because of all the sand it's sucking up. Holy Hoover Batman!

You can see the sand as brown sucking up the face after strip mining on the inside. Falling there would make you faint every time you saw a rag doll after.

Interesting history of the Kirra groynes here, with photos, before and after the Superbank sand pumping:
https://www.dailytelegraph.com...da6f9f11fd4002aee19c59

Little groyne got buried after all the sand pumping, disappearing in 2003, but has made a partial reappearance due to erosion since then. Amazing pics at the link.

I surfed the little groyne side in 1999, because the whole Top 44 and all their friends were on the main peak by the big groyne, and it was heavy (during Cyclone Frank). I was watching from way down the line as pro after pro got shacked in tubes with as much sand as water in the lip.
