ian (kanga) cairns cutting back
It’s all in the fingers. Click up the pic and you will see that despite the ridiculous position he has put himself in the big blokes’ hands are as relaxed as a man who has just put down a schooner.
There is little doubt that he has used all his weight off the bottom of the wave to get upstairs so quickly and he probably started into the layback (?) halfway up. I cannot remember seeing another shot of a bloke getting smacked in the head by his own rooster tail, and he is perfectly horizontal – How can that be?
The bloke is also built like a bull and I’m reckoning that the board will be around and under him very smartly.
I don’t know what that move could be called, but he did it.
– then everything went wrong
