The west coast of Tasmania in Australia is a wild place. Often the Roaring Forties bring huge swells crashing against the rugged coastline. You can feel very isolated here, especially when surfing the remote breaks. In fact, there is no land mass between the west coast of Tasmania, and Argentina.

The West coast has a very rich and important Indigenous culture. You can feel the immense power of the land and sea, and its peoples. The power of the ocean is also very humbling and makes you realise just how small we really are.

However, sometimes, when the wind is right, and the swell is clean, you can get world-class waves like this one, all to yourself.
