Here is a fascinating story from Australia from almost a year ago. Apologies
for the slow surfacing but it should be worth the wait. Some acts and
stories are timeless, I believe this one falls in with that lot.
Some tow-in surfers are about to be busted up against rocks in driving 25 to
30 kt. winds and 4 to 13 m (13 to 40 ft.) waves and it is almost dark. The
nearest rescue folks aren't anxious to take on these horrific conditions in
available craft. There is a kiteboarder and solid waterman rigged with a 14
m kite who thinks he can help.
His story and action photos follow:
