A crew of surfers is pioneering ridiculous waves off the “Lost Coast” of Tasmania.

SHIPSTERNS BLUFF is one of the most dangerous waves in the world. Check how the wave doubles up (quadruples up?) and forces surfers to basically ollie into the barrel. SICK!!

From their project website:

This blog is a 3 month project to help raise interest and secure funding for a documentary exploring the “Lost Coast” of Tasmania. Shipstern Bluff is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of big wave surfing and we hope to explore more of this little island in search of new locations. There are no roads where we want to go but plenty of swell. The year-round AVERAGE is 15ft with peaks pushing 60ft offshore. This blog will lay the foundation for a epic journey that begins filming in April 2012.
