The Biggest Wave Ever Ridden In Australia?

A fuck-off big storm raging far out to sea in the Indian Ocean was followed by a fuck-off load of hype and one of the fuck-off biggest swells in years. And perhaps also the fuck-off biggestest wave ever ridden on Australian shores (go to 1:55). The spot known as Cow Bombie in Western Australia copped the full brunt of the swell, as did Justin “Frotha” Holland, the man who rocketed down the face of the wave in question — but he did so at the cost of a broken femur and the next wave landing squarely on his head. Yikes! Jamie Mitchell also features.
