This is what it’s all about to be a surfer in Australia. Old school rock, mates, road trips, camping on the beach with a fire and of course, pumping waves.

Heading into Autumn, Surfing Life condones all of the above behaviour. So, take a little tour around the Banana Coast and get your mindsurf on.

If Harley Ingleby threading an impossible backhand barrel on his 9’3″ log (around 1:50) doesn’t make you want to go surf right now, you might in fact have no pulse and be dead. Seek medical advice immediately.
