Cloudbreak was pumping today. Macking. “As good as it gets, so clean and glassy and perfect,” according to Joel Parkinson. “Owen (Wright) got one of the best barrels I’ve ever seen.”
“I stood up,” says Owen, “had my hands so far above my head couldn’t come close to touching the ceiling and got one of the biggest and best barrels of my life. Wow.”
This is a wave we saw roll through today. Everyone’s reaction says it all…
“Those were the biggest most perfect waves I’ve ever surfed,” Bede Durbidge said after being thrown into the fray. “It was pretty nerve-wracking being first up. We were on and then off and then on again. You have to be prepared to go. I think everyone on tour is more than capable of handling Cloudbreak as big as it gets, we just have to pick our window with the wind. Mello (Adam Melling) was charging out there too, so tough luck to him but I’m pumped to get some bombs and get through to Round Three.”
