It’s finally here! It’s been a year and a half since we filmed an episode as Dannie temporarily moved to the other side of the world, so I (Hannah) flew out to visit her in Australia so she could take me on a tour of Australia’s crappiest waves.
We filmed most of this episode on the Sunshine Coast where Dannie was living, and the whole thing was filmed in the space of 3.5 days. Other than the teeny time limit, the biggest challenge was definitely overcoming our fear of native Australian fish – particularly the big ones with the really sharp teeth! In the episode you’ll see we have a book called “Australia’s Most Dangerous Animals” which we got for filming and fun, but one day Dannie happened to read the shark section before we went surfing and I think she lasted a whole 10 minutes before having to get out of the water because she was freaking herself out.. So I guess one thing we learnt whilst surfing in Oz is that you don’t read books about sharks before you go for a surf!
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did filming it and just drop us a message if you want to get in touch or if you ever want to come surf with us! See you in the surf 🙂
PS – Some of this footage was sneakily filmed in Indo as on the way out to Oz we both met in Bali for a week to hunt down some fun left-handers!
