There’s something exciting about a menacing autumn day and a solid swell. Especially at a place like North Point, on Australia’s Western coast. North Point likes to play – see that crumbling foam out on the shoulder of this tunnel Rohan Annesley’s flying through? It ain’t gonna shut down. It’s gonna hold up and Rohan’s gonna come flying outta there. But there’s always that moment of fear, wondering if it’s gonna close in on you like a glutenous brute.

This photo captures a moment of power – Rohan’s wave is straight-up exploding down the line and that set out the back erupted on the heads of all in the lineup. So Rohan’s positioning here is double-sweet – he’s missed the clean-up and scored the cave. Pure energy!
