HISTORY

Posted: February 7, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Australias pioneer bodyboarder Chaz McCall was the first rider to gain notoriety for charging at Shark Island. During the early  80′s the notoriously thick lips and shallow reef  of the Island gave it a reputation as one of the heaviest waves in the world. Chaz was responsible for showing what was possible on a bodyboard by dropping into the most twisted and warping caverns. This pic captured by Greg Button saw a bearded Chaz taking the drop and it was similar ground breaking photos that  inspired a homegrown crew to follow in his wake.
