to the intern that keeps deleting me: That sure was fast! You are getting pretty good at this! You can thank me for all the extra overtime you are getting scouring the threads for that gotdam cyber insurgent sqirl at furrytreerat@gmail.com. Or negotiate terms for a truce. I got nothing better to do so to victor goes the spoils.

mad Props on that Revolution beegeeweed surfer (sure hope I spelled your name right) really put your own Spin on it didnt you? Still i dont know if I would Thrust (silent h) you to be Propelled to the top of the Rotatings (silent ot) with that comment. VP is going to have to sue me for PUNitive damages for stealing his fire.

I've seen your pic ( http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=115406 ) , great example. But I just cant work this one out. It appears to be a small wave ? Where is the bottom , it must be shallow ? Why is there white wash on the backside of the tube if it is a shot of a pitching tube ! Is it breaking towards camera or from behind ?

not a propeller, this is what happens when the air is sucked through certain hollow waves. Called a Vortice

Now you are speaking my language Viscous Pipet! i will probably receive voluminous Hazen for this comment but try to use your Head and negate any losses due to Friction. I will try to relieve the Pressure you must be feeling by keeping an Open Channel of communication. I really am Manning up for this pun off! Is it because I am Weis? Bach to reality, right? Sorry but i am feeling a bit Moody because no one is going to get any of those puns........If I have to I can draw you a Diagram.

Jacob Cockle's avatar

Jacob Cockle Feb 6, 2010 Rating: 1

Its real hard say, this photo was taken on the inside section where the wave size can get pretty random as it mutates and sucks dry, If I remember correctly this day was pretty average, maybe 5 on sets and super fun ramps al over the place, Love Confital

There is a surf movie "sound of waves" that probably 50% of the movie is underwater slow-motion video. Really one of the more original surf flicks i have ever seen. This wave reminded me of it.

amazing - the only time i've seen these "runners" as i call them (air vortices) is on underwater images of teahupoo, or underwater video footage of teahupoo, for example on mike stewarts somewhat bizarre movie "Fire". Nice catch Mr Cockle, I'm well impressed with that.
