Mark Mathews

This photo, taken last week in Western Australia, surely is one of the heaviest waves ever ridden in Aussie waters.

Mark Mathews, 26 years old from Maroubra, made it, thankfully.

The sequence and vision can be seen on Mark's site.

He may well be nominated for the next Billabong XXL Biggest Tube Ride Award.

Nico von Lerchenfeld has had the time of his life at Surf Snowdonia, in Wales. But he was not there to surf.
