Kirra point turns it on.

This is Sam Yoon. Sam is a Gold Coast local who lives at the Southern end within striking distance of Currumbin Alley, Snapper Rocks and the famous Kirra Groin. A few weekends ago he paddled past me on a particularly beautiful Sunday morning when Kirra was cranking, we exchanged pleasantries and talked a bit about his recent trip to Hawaii. As swell lines approached he turned around and paddled into a set wave. From the beach this is what it looked like. Sam sets up with a graceful old school Island stance, legs apart arm trailing in the wall, it reminded me so much of  Hackman or the Owl back in the day. Go Sammy go!
