CYCLOPS - AUSTRALIA'S HEAVIEST WAVE

A MAIOR E MAIS PERIGOSA ONDA DA AUSTRÁLIA


É a mais poderosa onda da Austrália. Pesada, rápida e, de vez em quando, com uns tubarõezitos pelas redondezas... quem se atreve?

Eis a descrição:

"Cyclops is the heaviest wave in OZ! Once the lip hits the water, it explodes like TNT ! It is pretty much only a bodyboarding wave, although surfers can tow in, but it is risky, but has been done before in billabong odyssey. Surfers have can't wear a leash because if they wipe out they will get dragged across the reef and will be in big trouble. If you wipe out here it is extremely dangerous.The reef is super shallow! It looks like it will be a 3-4 foot wave, and jacks up to 10 feet. There is no hospital for a 2 hr boat trip then 5 hr car drive. Also massive 8 metre+ great white sharks are in these deep waters and many lives have been lost in shark attacks off the australian coast. If you get cut up out here you are extremely lucky to not attract sharks.

Cyclops is the most hyped least surfed wave in the world. It's extremely heavy with massive amounts of water unloading on shallow reef. Cyclops is definitely Australia's heaviest wave to date."

Boas ondas!
