LAST month James McKean took a foam wash thumper at Tasmania’s Shipstern Bluff.
Simon Treweek caught with Jim’s dad, legendary Tassie surfer Dave Mckean, to get his reaction to the footage?
“I was stoked cause James was right next to me when I saw it (So I knew he was OK) he was still stoked cause he’d also got the biggest barrels of his life.
“It’s great footage, all the local guys down there have pushed it to this. Ten years ago footage like this was unbelievable, not so long ago riding waves like Shippies was considered impossible.”
