Oldie - Surfed backdorr at 8 to 10 ft about 33 years ago with me a mate the only two out. MR was surfing Bombie at about 15 to 20ft - awesome. My favorite wave in Australia when its on. However gets too crowded these days with little respect shown by anyone. If I want a good wave like that these days without crowds I go OS.
