The Cape at Kurnell.  This unfortunate surfer had just nose dived on this monster wave. The wave had him in its clutches, and was determined to beat him up some more.  Tim Vanderlaan

2016 Cape Solander If ever you thought you got drilled surfing your local break, then this surfer has just redefined the term “getting smashed”. Tim Vanderlaan Photo. The next shot of a horrendous wipeout. Diving into a metre deep water, with the lip of the wave a split second away from rearranging your vertebrates. Tim Vanderlaan Photo.
