Red Bull Cape Fear 2015



The southern tip of Sydney Australia is home to one of the most treacherous waves on the planet: "Ours" at Cape Fear. This deadly slab breaks just inches above the rocky bottom and next to a jagged cliff, offering absolutely no room for mistake. For the past decade, surfers, bodyboarders, and bodysurfers alike have put their life on the line to test their wits at the death slab.

"Pound for pound, Cape Fear is the heaviest and most dangerous wave in the world," says big wave surfer and one of the brains behind the concept, Mark Mathews."There's no wave in the world from six to ten feet that is heavier than it. Deep water swells pitch on a super shallow ledge that's covered with razorblade barnacles and then it breaks only 10-15 metres from the cliff face. So if you fall off and don't hit the bottom, chances are you're going to get washed in to that cliff face. There are plenty of dangers and few people willing to navigate them."But the globe was sought over and those few brave, perhaps fearless souls have been found, Red Bull Cape Fear compiling a list of the world's best big wave surfers to contest the one-day epic.
