After last year’s swell starved Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, I swore I would never shoot another Bells Beach event in my life. However, with the lure of the 50th Anniversary celebrations and whisperings of a perfect swell, I found myself back in the midst of that red cliff, corduroy line embrace.
Gripped by he icy hand of winter, huey delivered four days of back-to-back 4-6ft perfection at Bells Beach, saturating memory cards with iconic lineups and historic moments, inspired by nature’s perfection.
Everything was going well until I got wacked in the heat by the jet ski sled, slamming my water-housing into my face that left me with a split lip and a black and blue swollen chin. I shed blood for my images at this event, but for the handful of gold I got - it was worth it!
