Shot during a classic Island swell in March 1980. Mark “Froggo”Malloy paddled into this Island pit on a 5ft 10” Sky wide stubby single fin. Seconds after this photo was snapped his board which was way to short ran out of steam and he got sucked up and over and pulverised by the lip. It was the worst wipeout of his surfing career but a memorable one. Photo Chris Stroh .
