BENNELONG POINT - Surfing Sydney Opera House

On 6th June 2012 a massive swell hit Sydney, Australia. The giant waves broke all the way into the harbour, making a perfect 2km wave at Bennelong Point, aka the famous Sydney Opera House. Marcie and Frimmy scored an epic sesh with no one else out. Made this little vid of the day. Hope you like it! Daz

Hey there, have you heard of "TRAVeLSEWHERE " (just search on Google for it ...)? I have found various ridiculously cheap hotels as well as plane tickets. This can let you spend less on your upcoming journey as well.

If you look closely you can see the clipping between the water (foreground) and the opera house/Sydney buildings (background). It's a composite video, not a bad job for an amateur..

My name is Claude D'Arcy, I am 92yo. I never thought I'd hear of this again in my life, this isn't the first time that Bennelong point has been surfed. In early March of 1934 not long after I turned 14 and following a tropical cyclone up north some swell arrived down the coast here in Sydney. It coincided with a late summer storm and king tides, and the right conditions that meant waves refracted in towards the point. This brings back fond memories of me and my mates that surfed there that day
