|Mark... what Peter said... sta-pler boy ;) |
last time i checked we werent ozzies, bru have way more brains than that. Ours was a secret spot once. Theirs is shark island.
So you had to ask for directions... interesting!

|Well stoked! |
Undisclosed spots..? It's pretty simple really - Respect
I only know 4 guys who have ridden this wave so it not exactly popular. Now I love taking shots of kief waves but out of courtesy to the riders and those that pioneered the place I didn't name it. I don't want to be known as the guy that exposes spots and as a result never gets invited on missions ever again. As for it being so heavy that it would never become crowded... well, they said that about Pipe once upon a time too! Props to the insan-os who crossed that deep dark channel!

|Wherever it is ... are you able to shoot from a boat or ski in the channel? Looks like potential for some good shots ... especially if it has that Hoek water colour to it.|
Anyway - nice one Pete & DC ... one of those shots to get you amped!

|yoh all tis argueing over a wave.....|
i rate it dont even make a difference.only a handfull of people have the BALLS to paddle out to it... long paddle + deep water + super scary wave+ a few jhonnies here an there= no one out only a few willing to go! so wats the fuss bout...but still dont give directions away to waves let them find it themselves
peace keep it chilled only a wave...;)

|Then again, this website would be kind of boring if every photo had no spot references to them at all. I kind of agree that this is one of those places that will never get crowded, so you may as well claim it for what it is.|
But this habit of giving away locations in the comments section is pretty fecking stupid. If the photog has chosen to leave it off then people need to have some respect...

|secret.. from the latin sek-ret meaning "full of kak and lost" lol... Mark if everyone sees it all the time (and I guess you are half right) then why did you still have to ask me and Dc for directions? .... you are too funny my guy.... my definition of semi secret is a spot that you can still paddle out on a fun day and be by yourself, no matter how close the spot is to lots of humans on the beach - kinda like how exposures used to be 6 years ago.|

|totally disagree with you, but no comment... still chuckling over the IQ of a stapler chirp of peters.... |

|For once, I think theres no point in the normal, "secret spot this" or "secret spot that" I know that spot, and I dont think It sits in many to even want to be out there, let alone ride it. that wave will never get crowded...|

|Forget about the stapler, what I want to know is... did you eat it, Pete?|
20th November 2008 08:39
|OH NO .... RESPEC ...|

|it aint like people will actually ride it pete. i dont really think those hard chargers from kalk bay reef will be out there. they got bigger fish to fry. should have spun in the barrel.|

|Haha! Nice try with the stapler! Hang on, wait, let me post the gps co-ordinates cos it's so far off the beaten track you need a Strandloper to show you where this is...|
33º 57' 12'' E 18º 30' 30'' S

|Well if it was a mission then it cant be Gunties or anywhere near there for that matter :) so Im safe!|
Beside it breaks to close in and could never hold that size too.
But thats also part of the stoke that okes get from seeing pics like this,wondering where the hell it is?
No-one has named the spot nor has any1 acknowledged any guesses being correct.
My first thought was Hoek or somehwere like that cos of the colours but on 2nd look thats def a slab break that can handle large swell.
Bigups 4 finding & taming her.

|Why does some guy always have to name the semi-secret spot and say where it is? - surely with the IQ of a stapler or higer one can figure out that there was a reason that spots name and location has not been tagged.... Side note: thanks kimon for making the mission epic - you have balls of titanium.|
