Shark Island Warp.

Posted: July 11, 2011 at 10:13 am

When photos first started appearing in magazines of Shark Island it quickly gained a reputation as the heaviest wave in Australia. It was all because of its unpredictability and tendency to warp, bend and buckle as the wave hit the reef. The uniqueness guaranteed that no two waves were ever going to look the same. The Island may have been knocked off its heaviest wave title more recently but those warping barrels are still doing there thing today. Dredging empty Photo ’77 by Chris Stroh
