This is what some would call a frontside full roter to the flats. others might call it a man flying in the air with a surfboard.

Always try and keep the amount of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you've made. #northern_beaches #ig_australia #all_shots #aussie_shots #seeaustralia #swell #picoftheday #aussiephotos_sep #rsa_water #ig_captures #ilovesydney #instacool #wa_beach #surfing #amazing #spring #coastalwatch #ocean

Shitty pic but such a huge vibe in this photo.
Was the biggest swell to hit the East coast this year, so windy I could hardly open my car door.!
Watched 3 blokes paddle out from south cronulla and drift down to Wanda before paddling into bombs! This guy copped an entire set on the head, washing him to the beach, was heavy. 
10 points for effort!
