Sessions: Dropping into deep water bombs at Cow Bombie

In West Australia, when the going gets tough the tough get towing, and such was the case recently when the deep south’s notorious Cow Bombie roared to life in enormous fashion. By now you’re familiar with the classic groundswells that rake Indonesian shores at this time of year, well, they weren’t always that well behaved.
