Just FYI; I don't know all our Lifeguards names but Gustavo Alberto Mendoza Alor said the Surfer is Lifeguard Orale Tokio

My bad, nothing but admiration for all salvavidas, tow, makes sense. Awesome shot btw, not the usual angle on the lineup.

jus sayin, if youre a puerto lifeguard, you should be able to swim in that type of surf. george freeth, and tom blake would be turning in their graves. dave wassel would bitch slap these boys into line, as he puts it, "if you cant swim in 10' pipe, or 10' waimea shorebreak, you're a pool guard" i mean no disrespect, i think lifeguarding is the most noble, and humble "job" a person could do......

I agree - I'm no hell charger but judging from waves in Hossegor, I'm not sure that I'd want something that would keep me on the surface if I fell. Think I'd want to get a bit deep 1st. Please tell me if I'm wrong?

Not that I could ... or would ... but if I found myself in that position my face would be white, my butt brown, and if I survived I'd probably stupidly want to do it again ... and again ... until such time as I did not survive - then I'd stop.

I could say similar about your comment wha wha! But having just searched the data base of 'Flags of the World' I couldn't find your flag anywhere. Is it a version of the Brazilian flag...??? Are you an alien?? Maybe you have you own country, some obscure little island of Novia Scotia somewhere with trade links back to the main land...??? Maybe you don't have trade links, maybe you are completely self efficient...??? Maybe you have trade links, but only export as your island is rich in all food and mineral sources...??? May your island IS rich in food and mineral sources but you don't export any trade links because you hate the Canadians...??? Maybe you are Canadian, but have changed your flag so no-one knows...ha ha ha ha! I love Canada...
