Probably missed the pit of his life......local chiropractors were probably on the beach, with biz cards handy, frothing at the prospects of this day!

This is what it's all about - unpredictability. We check the reports, watch the buoys, the wind, the tide, the current. We head to our break with a hope of something grand - timing and elements coming together in a symphony we want to harmonize with. Wait for a set - get our placement just right - sit near the peak and charge when we we feel the dynamics of it all have come together and we shall tame (or mingle) with the sea in a way that no other can understand. We're there- where the land meets the sea and the sky and the power and fury of the ocean are ours for the taking . . . . . . . . Then Mother Nature hangs a lickin' on you and gives you a little reminder that you don't really friggin' matter little piss-ant. Take a little of this - WHOMP! . . . . You come out the back and catch your breath for a second. You blow the salt from your nose, head outside to rest for a set . . . . . And you know. This is right where I want to be. Do me Mother Nature. Do me again.

Nice work son (have a +). Clawed back some respectability with the last paragraph, it was all going a bit tree-hugger for a while. I bet you wrote that first bit while listening to a cd of whale-song! (45 inches of tie-dye?)

Verbal: ‘Who is Keyser Soze? He is supposed to be Cornish. Some say his father was a knee-boarder. Nobody ever believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever surfed with him. He’s a myth, a spook story that spongers tell their kids at night. "Drop in on your Pop, and Keyser Soze will get you." No-one ever really believes it. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. You think a guy like that comes this close to getting photographed will stick his head out again? If he comes up for anything, it will be to retrieve his tea-tray or wax your windscreen. After that, my guess is you'll never hear from him again. And like that….. poooff….. He's gone.’

Looks like a Circle One Board, reverse the shot and board and wave would match the logo! Good shot.

From someone who does long b, short b, boogie b and body surfing, from what I can see of it this wave has the potential to be tons of fun, as long as you're not wedded to the idea that being in a wave requires standing on a board. Hell, I'd love to just dive into that bowl at the bottom and see what happens.

Verbal: 'Who is Keyser Soze? He is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that….. poooff….. He's gone.'

s0ulsurfing Jun 8, 2009 Rating: 0

no worries, like i said, i'm happy to say if i use ps on a shot, but i'd do it to enhance colour or contrast, not to stick a board in a wave, not sure why anyone would even want to do that

Absolutely. You've got great pics on that site, and that red bb appears in at least one other pic. I blew it up in Fireworks (the picture, that is), because the angle and lighting make the edges of the board look too distinct, but I saw no signs of manipulation. Just an excellent example of being in the right place at the right time. Thanks for sharing.

definitely not photoshop, and i'd say if it was, the body boarders at this place had a lot of balls and threw themselves into crazy situations, i'm a stand up surfer and just had to admire the commitment
