another cool shot from you carpet. you must take a beatin the way you get some of your shots especially there at Sandy. And I cant stop laughing at KFED's comment. That was hilarious. It never gets old. I think if I had a $1 for every time that line was used, I could buy Canada. And speaking of the great surfing nation Canada, hows the surf up there KFED? Just like Hawaii I bet huh?

Maybe you should come surf this spot and I'll get a shot of you standing up! I'd love that.

This shot reminds me of one day back in my youth at the pipeline. I was much deeper though. Actually it really was a pipeline. The local constables wanted to have a word with me but I was not in a chatty mood so I crawled in there to get some privacy. Carpe, your problem now is you have raised the bar so high even for yourself that a shot like this that would normally cause me to froth at the mouth with my eyes rolled to the back of my head, is now a "great shot Carpe...hi5"

Don't worry Dr, I will still have more good shots coming! Thanks for all your comments and support. I'm guessing you got an in and out of your tube, or I don't think you'd be typing on your computer. Yeah!

As I was reading policies, (trying to figure out why my photo was deleted) I stumbled across what they expect from the owner of the photo. Since I have the ability to delete comments, I think that I'll keep all the name calling off of here. You guys can do that on your profile pages. Aloha, Tyler

CarpeWave's avatar

CarpeWave Apr 21, 2010 Rating: 1

Most likely, but I am a student right now, so my schooling and other commitments always come first. We could work something out though. Do you live here, or are you going to visit?

Thanks! I certainly do....yesterday I was ducking under some bombs...dove down hovering over it and then got shoved into the reef at Off the Wall a few times. It was pretty small at a lot of breaks but it was coming in 6+ feet there! I got some cool shots. You'll see them up soon!

This was the end section on a large outside bomb. I'm betting he didn't make it, but he did have some speed going in.
