Residents were being urged to stay indoors with Cyclone Marcia lurking. But just like children who want what they can’t have, fearless Aussies in Queensland’s south-east were out and about facing down the storm*.
Second thoughts about heading out at Snapper Rocks
Would you look at that spray? No turning back now
Get out the water, I’mma swallow you whole
Babe, I think you should come back out now…
Marcia schmarcia. A little storm surf never killed nobody
Don’t cross the road when the red man’s flashing
Or rather just don’t attempt crossing the road at all
Wetsuit? Bodyboard? Storm? Sorted.
Pensive surfer poses for a photo before diving off the rocks
We’re going in boys! Who needs a wetsuit?
Dad, where did they go?
Quick, let’s take a selfie before Cyclone Marcia comes!
*Friendly reminder: Severe weather poses a serious danger to your life. People are urged to follow the latest government storm advice.
