In the 80’s Chris Iredale was at the peak of his surfing powers and he was especially at his best at getting barreled at Shark Island on the biggest and heaviest days. Back then the scores of boogies were far and few and Chris had his big wave line down and made the deadly slabs look easy to make. Anyone who has surfed the Island when its slabbing knows how difficult it is to ride this wave. Chris had it mastered. Photo Tim Vanderlaan.
