This photo was taken on a quiet day, but you get the idea. Big Wave Surfers flock to the" Skeleton Reef" just minutes from the Catlins McLean Falls Holiday Park. We'll tell you how to get there. Most mags are Mum on the location! Book your accommodation and head down to the reef to scare the living daylights out of yourself!

Check out this link for the Papas Monster Derby of 2003: I have seen the "Maverick' bad boys, in California and this is every bit as big and knarly! Not for the Rookie surfer, the Skeleton Classic will form far out and give the ride of your life. Jetski's are the order of the day and tow - ins are essential.

Talk to the locals in Invercargill or Dunedin for the best way to conquer these Roaring Forty Monsters! We'll provide the fuel at our Watering hole and you provide the drool, these waves are the real thing. Many articles are being written in surf Mags around the world of the newest , meanest, badest wave I have ever seen. Big Days this year were, between July and October . Sou' Easters seemed best. They were perfectly formed and some I saw were over 15 meters. Several times as many as ten guys were out there having the time of their lives! Email for updates! See ya!
