I wasn't sure where to post this, so miscellaneous sounded ok.
In my continuing pursuit to understand overseas breaks better, I recently found an article in an Oz stand-up mag "Surfing World" http://www.surfingworld.com.au/
titled "The corruption of Jervis Bay" by Tim Baker. I can't comment on its accuracy at all because i know very little about JBay's history.
However i think it is always useful to know when other people are commenting or talking about your breaks and places, so just putting it out there so you saffas know.
The article itself was about 9 pages long (pretty hefty for a mag). It seeems to be well phrased and researched in itself, covering development in the JBay region vs no more "vibe and brotherhood". I quite like the history of breaks and it starts with an indepth description of a fellow "Anthony "Doc" Van Den Heuwal (ex national champion) who squatted there from '68 onwards, who sadly was beaten to death a few years ago.
It does seem to be well researched and there are some excellent tributes at the end, along with links to supertubes foundation and other things.
Anyways it was pretty sweet learning about one of your breaks some more (albeit from a stand-up persective).
If any readers here in Australia get the mag, I wouldn't mind hearing feedback as to its viewpoint.
