Haha gold. There was a small but powerful wave at the worlds in SA and peeps were getting cleaned up heading back into shore. Funny to watch!

Tassie sprint tri in 2017. 

Beautiful till the start, when the swell rolled in

Never had to body surf a wave in a wetsuit... anything different or worth knowing? Mind you I probably haven't body surfed a decent wave in 10 years either, not sure I'd have the nerve to anymore.

Make sure it fits good around the neck or you'll end up looking like Michelin Man (I do anyway) when the water pours in. You are more buoyant, so if it's choppy and you get sea-sick easy you could be in trouble.

That's just the warm-up, the swim start must have been carnage!

It's the diving under to get out in the first place is what challenged me. 

Not used to that. Waaaaay more buoyant to get down.

The trick is to grab the bottom then push yourself back up behind the wave

My problem was getting to the bottom in the first place! I'm a floater at the best of times
