Surf skiers in giant swell photos?

5 years 11 months ago - 5 years 11 months ago #20087 by arminius
A few years ago a guy from Port Elisabeth (from memory) went out in giant storm swell and rented a chopper to take some pictures. Does anyone know where I can find these? The waves were monstrous and the photos truly inspiring. I had a go on Google but no luck - any help would be appreciated.

Another perfect day in paradise. A bit of sun, a bit of rain and it's not even lunch time.

after a few good waves :laugh: one stood up and broke one me as I turned off and it did not end well :blush:

The ski shape was a Fenn Millennium ( Mould rented from Dean Gardiner in Australia ) I made the ski myself with Carbon/Kevlar hybrid fabric which caused it to stay in a Big piece once broken :(
