When the chart goes tits up and the waves you were excited to score become a write off, there's little more pleasing than to stumble across an empty, pumping pointbreak.
We had to carry a shit load of water and food, the surfboards, all the camera gear, the tents and everything we would need for a couple of days camping.
With no roads leading to the headland in question, they were left with no choice but to leave the car and pack up their equipment. "We had to carry a shit load of water and food, the surfboards, all the camera gear, the tents and everything we would need for a couple of days camping. We walked for about 45 minutes and it was super windy, we could barely hold our surfboards in the wind, and then walked down a little hill and saw perfect clean lines rolling towards the coast."
After a day of pumping waves almost to themselves, the crew of four Germans and an Aussie, set up camp with no one in sight but for a couple of wild dogs. "We had a little campfire and got excited for the swell that should be arriving in the next morning," says Martin. "When we woke up the next morning the waves were still perfect. We just surfed our brains out and enjoyed this lonely point. This is pretty much how it kept going for the next 4 days."
