Enough from us, Andy Chis take this mic, please. “When pro surfing’s D-Day hit, Marti Paradisis did what any blue collared Tassie boy woulda,” says Andrew Chisholm. “He scooped a job a the Budget rent-a-car outlet at Hobart airport (the graveyard shift) and carried on charging the Stern during the daylight! Marti had just caught a little wave and was paddling back out and the tide was one of the highest of the year with only the bigger sets breaking properly. This lump came through a little bit wider (south) than usual, allowing the big Greek to steal this one from under everyones’ wings. It was one of those waves that stays in your memory bank for a long time, and it’s up there with one of the biggest paddle barrels ever; including Laurie’s monster when AI called him in, Rasta’s bomb from 2001, and some of Perrow’s first session screamers.”
