welcome.

hit the road. It’s cheeky ain’t it, this magazine. We’ve dedicated 84 pages to Hawaii and 42 pages to Cyclone Tuni, yet you won’t read a single story! That’s totally intentional! Not that we can’t tell a story or two, but as the saying goes, a picture’s worth a thousand words. And these images, captured by some of the best in the biz, fulfil the criteria of excellent moments in Hawaii and closer to home. It’s time to soak up the meanings, messages and essences of the North Shore and Cyclone Tuni with dazzling eye candy! The air is warm, cyclone swells are looming for the east coast, stiff, hot northerlies are striking the bottom of Australia, west is playful. Grab ya pals, ya girls, ya kids. Hit the road. Chase reefs. Chase beachies. Chase points. Summer never felt so good. Your dreams… it’s time for them to come true. If you ain’t a dreamer, start now! From us, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks for 2015. T’was a good year. We’ll see you on social media or something before 2016! Andy Morris.

ABOVE: Strong lines of swell pour into Coolangatta during the seven-day swell from Cyclone Tuni. As you can see, overcrowding was a problem on the points, but despite all the whining, there have been MANY ‘wave of my life’ calls thrown around since the swell. It’s easy to see why, yeah! Photo: AM
