Sydney’s weather today – ocean swell up to 3 metres, westerly gale force winds, coastal warnings for “large swell breaking dangerously onshore”. These conditions are dangerous and will keep many paddlers at home, but for some this would look like a recipe for fun and excitement. The Tsunami Rangers would likely be grabbing their helmets and wash-deck boats and be heading for the coast to see what trouble they could get into, whilst the rest of us get comfortable indoors with a good book!
Many of the Tsunami Rangers antics have been documented, with their “Tsunami Rangers Greatest Hits” DVD containing some amazing footage of them in surf and rocks. The’ve kindly let me use the following piece of surf footage from their DVD for those paddlers staying out of the booming surf today. Hopefully this’ll inspire a few of us to get out there and get wet. Cheers – FP
