The Hoax

Late in August 2013, a swell arose that had everyone from qualified meteorologists to crusty old seadogs amping at the prospect of a repeat of THAT swell - the July, 2001 super swell. While some spots pumped and some people scored, other spots didn't and some people got skunked. Surfing Life however, scored a mysto offshore bombie with a crack team of Aussie rippers, as evidenced by these huge, blue barrels.

We take an in-depth look at the swell that kinda was, but kinda wasn't, in Surfing Life Issue #301. Go grab your copy now, you've only got a week left.
