Travelling hellmen.

Waking at 4:00am, covering enough miles to use a ful tank of fuel, I was the accompanying photographer for rider's Taylor Jones, Clay Smith, Brenley Steuart and Jamie Steuart. First off was the winding road to Pipe, the break to which we layed our eyes on dissapointment. None-the-less, conditions were sizey so we managed to have a lunch break and shore bash at Cullburra after being denied entry to the NAVY base in the search of a wave. By noon Gerroa was a passing frenzy of clean pealers off the rocks and a tidy bombie, shortly after Kiama had the swell but had the crowds as well. Petrols low and 1:00pm hit; dispite thirty-odd degree heat and gates closed due to a fire ban, bushes were walked and barbed wire fences climbed in the hunt for an intense right hander. Unseen at this size, the pack of four sucked it in and paddled out for possibley some of the heaviest waves of their lives yet. Below is a tight summary of the day and its highlights.
