Julian Wilson in “One Fine Day”
Around the time when the temp was starting to drop in Sydney, which ain’t so peachy on land but certainly means good things in the water, Julian Wilson was on the hunt.

Around the time when the temp was starting to drop in Sydney, which ain’t so peachy on land but certainly means good things in the water, Julian Wilson was on the hunt. Samoa isn’t the first place that springs to mind when y’think of snatch-and-grab runs, but the forecasts were lighting up so Jules assembled fellow Sunny Coast surfer Kai Hing, filmer/pal/radical dude Jimmy Lees and photographer Ryan Miller. Ryan missed his flight so a replacement shooter had to be dialled in, that being Bosko. The crew swooped into Samoa and found… absolutely nothing. And 24 hours later, they were on a plane back to Sydney.
After swooping into the airport, they drove down to Aussie Pipe but there were no vibes there either. They swung the car back north, and drove for five hours checking every nook and cranny available on the way. Nothing! Sometimes, them’s the breaks…
After 48 hours of poor luck, the gents landed back in Bondi. And, as luck would have it, they landed on day of the year. Spirits were real low, but then Kai stomped the air-reverse you’ll see 50 seconds in. Julian had a front row seat and it triggered him into gear. He then threw down the hammers you’ll see here. All in two hours. – Elliot Struck
