Ocean Series - Dee Why Race Ocean Series - Dee Why Race

Rambo's become a fixture on the Aussie (and the international) surfski scene - and a good thing too.  Here's his latest - the video for the Dee Why race last weekend.  

Controversial Start

Tim Jacobs went on record to complain about the unfair start to the race - some of the paddlers set off, before the official start.

Happily it didn't affect the outcome - TJ won in emphatic style anyway.

But it does highlight a problem that has plagued races around the world - wet starts can easily and quickly get out of control when trigger happy athletes push their luck.  The only solution is either to start on dry land - or for the race officials to make it quite clear that false starts will not be tolerated.
