Sessions: Russell Bierke battles a heavy day at Shipstern Bluff

Up-and-coming Australian madman Russell Bierke is tackling the world one crazy wave at a time. You might remember him as the precocious 18-year-old who won Cape Fear in 2016. The son of Hawaiian big wave surfer Kirk Bierke, Russell never had a choice, from a young age it was always charge hard or charge home, and that’s just what he’s done. Growing up on Australia’s South Coast meant growing up on a diet of raw ocean energy, the Pacific endlessly broadsiding his hometown of Ulladulla and its plethora of shallow reef slabs and deep water bombies with swell…and it doesn’t get much gnarlier than a big ‘ol day at his local shallow reef slab Shipstern Bluff. Click play and watch Bierke battle a massive day at Shippies.
