HISTORY

Sunshine Coast in Queensland has long been a hotbed of bodyboarding talent. Around the start of the 90′s riders like Michael Moles, Marcus Lane and John Bull (pictured) were strong influences for the local crew. This pic of Bully was shot at an off shore bommy we named Kongs Reef. It was a long swim out and during the photo session my camera housing got knocked out of my grip and it wedged in the reef still attached to my wrist rope. So here I am way out at sea getting pounded in the impact zone underwater by the sets unable to get free and running out of breath. If I take the leash off I loose the camera  and housing. Eventually the waves backed off and I managed to dive deeper and free it and luckily it was unharmed except for a few scratches and still in one piece. Words and photos Chris Stroh from a Riptide story.
