Watch: Cape Solander Not Looking All That Fearing

Cape Solander, Cape Fear, Ours, whatever you want to call it is one of the more threatening waves on the East Coast of Australia. It definitely isn't the "world's most dangerous slab" as Tim Bonython decided to title this clip, but it is scary – as anyone who watched (or obviously surfed) the Cape Fear event from 2016 can attest.  

Here however, it looks somewhat playful. Not in the sense that any intermediate should give it a spin, but in the sense that watching it isn't terrifying, it makes you want to go and surf.

Anyway, the clip is filmed over two days sometime after restrictions were eased in NSW. 

I recommend skipping to the two-minute mark to get straight to the surfing.

Also, the music, as pointed out by the YouTube comment section, is really bad. Throw on Bob Dylan's new album or something, that's much better.
