Just off Sydney’s Botany Bay is one of the heaviest Australian waves ever surfed. Claimed and named ‘OURS’ by the Bra boys from neighbouring Maroubra Beach, big swell generates fast powerful waves that break directly on an open rock shelf. Only the fearless attempt to conquer the break; precision, lack of fear and luck being the only things standing between attaining the ultimate rush, or being pounded across the rocks!!

This image captures almost 6 hours of climbing parties on Rainier going for the summit under starry skies.
