"The S1-C water bike gives people of all ages and athletic abilities an exhilarating bike ride on the open water for fun, fitness, and exploration."
Surfers at Burleigh Heads, not always the most welcoming when it comes to anything that might disrupt the iconic lineup’s hierarchy or calm, were forced to flee for their lives on Wednesday when a “pedal catamaran” careened through the crowd.
In a short video posted to Instagram by local Cameron Burke, a thrill seeker on a nine-thousand dollar Schiller Water Bike which has been designed “to take your breath away” attempts to catch a wave before nose-diving and losing the craft on the famous rocks.
Surfers dive for their lives as the contraption is loosed from its master.
The newspaper’s readers, surprisingly, were more pro-bike than pro-surfer.
They said the same to me on Surfers beach when i ventured out in my new LONG BOARD many moons ago, ha ha get over it.
Too many whingers in the ocean.
The way I see it this crazy contraption went well over a single surfer, who duck dived appropriately under it, and it was well away from tne general public, so settle down, nothing to see here…except what might have been happening to his belongings or his car for “tresspassing” on the local boardriders ocean.
The Burleigh locals can take it – Harden up and stop crying to the media.
Surfers are soft.
The Karens of the ocean.
My son got caught in a rip out there when we were surfing one day at the point – The older locals just laughed and yelled out ‘ya might get eaten by a shark boy” So stop crying about you might have nearly gotten runover by a bloke having fun. You don’t own the break Karen.
