Northside bodyboarders Nick and Adrian Hybner (Slug) were standout riders at Monavale in the late 80′s. Older brother Nick and Matt Riley were full on competition rivals back in those days. The pair were continually pushing each other in and out of the surf. Eventually Nick followed a career as a chef and gave up competing while younger brother Slug went on to make a name for himself throughout the 90′s. This shot of Nick freefalling was taken at the Monavale Basin also called The Whomp around the late 80′s, its Monavales answer to Waimea shorey.
