The North Coast of New South Wales has enjoyed a great run of waves recently. While swell size dropped dramatically north of Cape Byron, the beaches and points between there and Ballina have served up super-fun four-five foot barrels fanned by all-day offshores.

Back home from Hawaii for some freesurfing with his brother Stephen and the local crew, Anthony Walsh reckons, “everywhere on North Coast was pumping”. However the Lennox Head ex-pat’s run was cut short after a mis-timed duckdive resulted in a quick trip to the doctor’s. “I only got two stitches in my cheek, but they left the inside open,” reports Walshy, who returned to the lineup the next day sporting a bit a black eye for some saltwater therapy.

Check out this clip of the local boys clocking up some serious cylinder time…
