 Additional Information

its not that scary but still don't go out if your a beginner, coz if the bombie is breaking the beachie will most likely be big and heavy which can make for a painful and expensive paddle! probably not best to paddle out if your unfit coz its a bit of a mission out there...

Pictures - hey, im just doing a bit of research on massive swells in sydney over the past 40 years. i was wondering if any of you have any good pictures of "frenchmans reef/bombie" or any other good pictures from any massive swells (like the 1974 swell). thanks, my e-mail is max_mabye_is@hotmail.com

I have photos - This so called "Frenchmans reef" has broken twice in my lifetime. Once in 74 (the biggest swell ever to hit Sydney) and once again in 83. I don't think you can call it a reef, it's just a huge closeout set. I have to find the negatives of the 83 swell. I promise i'll put the photos up soon.
