More Raw Footage From That Incredible Deadman's Session Wednesday

COASTALWATCH | BEST OF THE WEB

It's the session that's been breaking Instagram overnight and all day, when the infamous heavy spot at the south end of Manly, Deadman's, turned on and a crowd of 30-plus paddled out to give it a crack. The crowd on the headland would have been larger, which is where this video puts you for every bump and bomb.

SurfAid CEO and longtime Manly surfer Doug Lees was amongst the crowd. "Best day I have ever seen there, and I cannot believe how many people were charging," he says. "When I was growing up in Manly hardly anyone surfed there, and if you did you were hanging on the edge. Yesterday I counted 34 guys in the line up and most of them charging."

However, the underground charger who scored the wave of the day was most concerned about keeping it safe, and had this message to share:

"The most sketchy part here is the rock off! Please if you don’t have experience or unsure just paddle... Not just for your safety but everyone else’s in the water! It ain’t that far and you can scope the lineup. And if ya tired, well ya not fit enough so come back when you are, haha. How good is surfing!"
