cool... but I want a wide angle view, and I want to see what's behind/ side, fore, over the rainbow the zone... can't someone put a camera on the mountain and "focus" on the whole zone [more interesting]

Yeah, but wouldn't you just love - from the safety of a dry boat in the channel - love to yell 'For F**KS sake Dorian, STAND UP PROPERLY. There's enough room in there for all of us.' Then leave on the next flight to avoid being beaten to death.

He got towed into that one. It was on the Thursday when the swell was dropping and all the guys out were surfing there normal boards but getting towed in. Every now and then a monster would come through and it was always going to be Shane or Raimana who got it.

yeah, that would explain the position of the legs and the grab... 'cause he doesn't seems to be strap.
