Watch Australian Surfers Battle Massive Winter Swells on Sydney’s Bronte Beach
A little context, via Vimeo:
Another massive winter swell hit Sydney's coast over the last week generating monster sized waves putting on an impressive display of power and beauty along the coastline. People spend hours and hours perched atop the cliffs at Bronte (pronounced Bron-tee) marvelling at the sheer power of the waves crashing to shore whilst observing surfers taking on the big swells. What do people think about as they look out onto the huge swells rolling in and crashing up against the shore? Always wondered…. and how therapeutic it is for so many people. As it was a southerly swell generated by a huge low pressure system off Tasmania only a couple of Sydney's city beaches are rideable for the surfers – Bronte, my favourite beach and local, being one of them.
