Location: Shipsterns Bluff, Tasmania, Australia
Shipsterns is a tow-wave, right? That's why we haven't seen much of it on Innersection yet. Then here comes Victorian devil Sandy Ryan with this all-Shippies session. It's as much a tribute to the spot as his own hellmanship. Then he closes it out by bringing us inside the wave with him…an amazing clip angle, for sure.
"Sandy is Shipsterns most regular regular," says filmmaker Simon Treweek, "even though he doesn't live in Tasmania. He'll fly into Apple Isle on the sniff of a swell, ensuring he's in the lineup before the sun rises and until it sets." Guess that's what you need to do to score clips like this. Sandy and Ryan are currently working on a full-length movie about this form of insanity, called Sally. Look for it out later this year. www.sallythemovie.com
