Sunshine Coast surfer Mark Visser scores huge surf on Maui
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 December, 2009 : - - Big wave surfers from all over the globe arrived in Hawaii this week to witness the largest swell seen in five years. One of the most feared breaks in the world – Pehai or 'Jaws' as known to most, saw a combination of thrills, spills and broken boards.
Sunshine Coast surfer Mark Visser gave his account of the day –
“You wouldn’t dream about the stuff that went on out there. There were 30 jetski’s in the water, 5 choppers hovering above our heads, boats everywhere and people all over the cliffs watching. Four ski’s were wiped out and smashed about at the bottom of the cliff. People were getting smashed about there as well. It was crazy! It was the heaviest carnage I’ve ever seen go down in one surfing session. It was an amazing morning though – the weather was really nice, the sun was out, blue skies and the waves were big and clean. Then by about 12pm it turned ugly. Strong gusty winds came through and so did the rain. I was pretty happy come to back in one piece by the end of the day.”
