Jim Banks built a reputation as a fearless reef rider by charging waves like the notorious Shark Island on his backside. During the 70’s and 80’s the Island was regarded as one if not the most feared waves in Oz and the world. Banksy rode the Island as good as any of the natural foots of the time and with his back to the wall he got just as deep. This shot flying out of the bowl ran in Waves magazine around ’83.
