No cause as you can see.. he snuck up on the wave and is now on the attack. Jungle style! So i think it is the wave that should be worried.. Jumped straight through it! :P xx

No Marshall Jefferson was "move your body" - "jack your body" was by Steve Silk Hurley so I made a mistake - but not as big a one as matey boy who is about to get rear ended by that beast!

erm, don't mean to be pedantic, but Grandmaster Flash never said 'jack your body' , Marshall Jefferson did. Hip Hop never involved jacking , house did . Not that any of this will have mattered to matey boy about to get handed his ass by that beast

chenson's avatar

chenson Aug 18, 2010 Rating: 6

because a cutback in boogie boarding is just as "lame" as the dog tricks you herald as progressive moves. "lie down....roll over....good dog."

Shorey's avatar

Shorey Aug 18, 2010 Rating: 1

A cutback wont even score you a point in bodyboarding and well a re-entry is just lame.

Shorey's avatar

Shorey Aug 18, 2010 Rating: 2

The point was tjo that the dude is clearly not getting barrelled. I would rather get barrelled all day on my sponge than do re-entry after boring re-entry and cutback after boring cutback.

tjo's avatar

tjo Aug 18, 2010 Rating: 0

shorey, you're shorey kidding. i'd rather do a cannonball over the falls next to my surfboard then lay on a sponge in any barrel! i just washed my coffee cup with the only sponge i'll ever touch

You see on the far left, there is this lip, kind of like a curtain. If you are on a wave and you ride behind this "curtain" it is known as getting "barrelled". You dont have to be on your board like in the photo but you sure as hell have to be inside the barrel. I take it you are not a sponger.

Start flapping your arms dude. May not help that much but your remaining options for a 'textbook landing' are limited. Had a similar incident myself in 2ft Llangennith. Seriously though, cracking shot, these dudes got more backbone on show than a dinosaur museum. Much respect

How deep is it - is a feet first pencil dive out of the question to puncture through the face and escape being thrown back over the falls?

I had not heard that about the marshmallows and elf tears. I guess I was worried needlessly, as I was concerned he would have insufficient time to grab the rail and pig-dog out of there.

I've heard its only one foot deep but luckily the reef is made of marshmallow and elf tears so he should be just fine.
