Good to see someone taking on Shipstern Bluff with bare hands again.
Back in the early 2000s, there was pretty much only one guys surfing this wave – a local fella by the name of Andrew Campbell. He paddled it, of course, usually alone, finding limits as he went.
Now Sandy Ryan’s got the paddle bug for Shipsterns. It’s a hell of a wave when towed, but as a paddle wave it is gnnnnaaaarrrrrllllyyy.
Check 2:05 to see what you really don’t want to do.

    Wow. This is incredible footage. Sandy Ryan charges with style and the final sequence that is shot from the barrel is unreal.
