You're in the barrel, you can see the section closing out far in front you, but you still manage to sneak out from that little doggy door 1/4 second before it shuts off... Now you're in front of the white water with a large smile on your face, trying to look behind the wave to check if your mates saw you, you then jump off your board & paddle back out. What a feeling!

Cracking shot! A sobering reminder that all waves, no matter how perfect, come to an end. Unfortunately for this lucky tube-viewer at the office.

This reminds me of Rick Griffin and Fluid Floyd the Aqua-noid. Beautiful shot. I must try to draw it some day.

The tower block makes it, framing the urban/ocean conflict.

It's like "The Day After Tomorrow" from the tidal waves perspective!
