OVER THE SHALLOWS, SOUTH COAST, NEW SOUTH WALES.
Burch knows his way through a barrel. Here he is racing through a heavy low tide drainer. It was a crazy day of waves with a bunch of good mates. A couple of weeks after this shot was taken, Burch broke his neck surfing in South Australia, but is on the mend now and will be back in the water soon. â€“ Simon Punch
