Storm Surfers – Pedra Branca

Hi everyone

Okay. Now for something different.

Most of you know that one of my favorite things to do is to surf. Well, for those that share my love of surfing I thought you might like to know about a new documentary called Storm Surfers – The hunt for the biggest waves in the Southern Ocean. It is supposed to be showing on the Discovery Channel here later in the year.

There was a news item on Australia’s 60 Minute program that interviewed the surfers (two-time world champion Tom Carroll and big wave tow-in pioneer Ross Clarke-Jones) and followed them on their trip to Pedra Branca. “Pedra who??” I hear you say. Actually the question is “Pedra where?’ And you are forgiven for not knowing where it is, even if you are a surfer. It is some remote inhospitable place South of Tasmania that no one would ever want to visit – unless you are crazy like Tom and Ross that is!! But hey, don’t take my word for it. Check out the video clip and decide for yourself.

So what do you think after watching that? Wanna go? Teahupoo eat your heart out! 😉

Until next time, take care.

    Hey, I can’t view your site properly within Opera, I actually hope you look into fixing this.

    Hi there.
    I use Opera and it works fine. Can you be more specific? Then I could perhaps look into the problem for you. 🙂
    Thanks for visiting our website.
