relax everyone!! if you look closely you'll see this IS an important surf pic, thats a picture of Tom Curren doing the very first ever recorded on film "dive under". i know there's been rumors that it may have been done before, but just because someone goes under water as a wave passes over and pops back up on the other side, doesnt mean a thing w/out the proof. Thanks Tom Curren, i'm going to go work on this new trick now

if you dont appreciate this picture thats stupid because anyone who truly loves to surf can appreciate any pic of the ocean or a wave even if it doesnt include some guy on a shorty doing spins off the lip.you guys probably just surf because you think your friends will think its cool not because you really like it. longboarders for life B!@#H

I totally agree, now take the surfboard off your roof and leash off your ankle, there's no need for them when you're going to work

I'm going to tell you what I think about this on going debate -, not that many people will care what I think - but I will tell you anyway. So this photo has been related to as none surfing. I ask myself 'why does this picture have nothing to do with surfing?'. Well I think it has a lot to do with surfing, for starters a wave! How many pics do you see with no surfers but an empty wave? Essentially this is that but from a view point that not many of us brits (and our dirty water) get to see. I for one love this pic and it could only be made better if there was a girl in it, preferably naked.

Well now that you joined the debate, maybe we can swing the topic to whether or not you're a no class piece of shit. My vote is YES!

Well, you can consider arguing on the internet like running the special Olympics : even if you win, in the end YOU'RE STILL RETARDED !!! This said, I like this surf related pic.

there's only 10 votes for this photo (yes, mine included), and I'm pretty sure the editors have said before that some pics are hand-picked as they come in for the front page

I get it...these are cool photo's...but what do they have to do with surfing?? Any dork can get an underwater camera and take pictures of tourists in waves. I was backing the bikini chick, but now its just getting played out...

It must be flat where you are dude, you're taking things a bit too seriously. I gave you a -1 just for fun too

Any dork with a camera can also take a picture of a wave with noone on it... Its just from a different perspective man, it is a picture of a wave nevertheless... If it was in a swimming pool however...

The tide is turning...at last. I made a similar comment to you Joe & was nailed with -10 (last time I looked), yet you're on +4, whereas Slacker's getting -ratings for his defence of the photo & expectations of you producing better pictures. Just for the record you can have an opinion without the ability to produce better than what's being commented on...

If everyone else felt this way the photo wouldn't be voted onto the front page. Thus proving you're in the minority, ipso facto - no one really cares what you have to say.

Gotta agree with Joe...nice pics but, enough already. I thought this was a site for *surfing* related photographs.

Wow Joe, it sounds like you've got shit all figured out. That must be really nice. Let's see a few of your photos. I bet you've got a pretty unique artistic perspective. Can't wait to see those photos buddy...
