Siiick waves Cam!


Campbell Farrell hits Western Australia on the 10'3'' Gun Pro

"I couldn't believe my eyes as I bottom turned looking up at the size of the wave. Clearly I was going to get smoked. As Jason pumped his sail off the top projecting down the line to beat the racing section ahead of him I tried to high line as well but got thumped. I came up so stoked, knowing we were at the beginning of a great session.

We exchanged waves for about an hour and a half. The conditions were as good as it gets; smooth as butter, cross off shore winds, 12-15 feet on the sets and no one else out. We kept telling each other how lucky we were and hooting and hollering every drop. The session wasn't long but certainly one of the most fun surfs I've had for a long while.

It just goes to show what can be done with an SUP. There are so many more waves that can be surfed. The ability to cover great paddling distances and more easily stroke into bigger waves has to be seen as a relief to the surfing world.

I hope all people are encouraged to find their own space and let others have theirs."

Words and waves by Campbell Farrell, Waterman and Director of Starboard SUPSNZ.
