What if I told you there was an unknown sand-bottom right that is five kilometres long, breaks 20 metres off the beach, holds six foot of swell and has only been surfed by four people on the entire planet?
“It was cool finding out about a wave that no one else knew. I loved that feeling,” said Mick. “I told my friend: Don’t tell me where it is because I’ll start trying to pinpoint it and I don’t want to do that. When we eventually found out its whereabouts I just went ‘Wow, there aren’t any waves there! Are there?’”
However clandestine the mission, the wave – a hissing, spitting cobra of a thing – does have a (rather apt) name.
