To Paapa. Unless you are talking dungeons, South Africa isn't that heavy. Sure there are a few heavy ledges here and theere, but man, look at aus, there is some heavy ones. Hawaii, you'll man up enough, if you can survive the waves and the locals you

Soutie are you in love with the dude or something, it is all you ever comment about. Back to the picture, this looks like a very nice wave to ride, big, but not too steep so take off wont be so bad. Doesnt look like the type of wave to suddenly pinch and land on your head.

Sketchy! This wave is solid and Biarritz is dodgey especially at this size... although maybe this is on the anglet side of the lighthouse which isn't as bad?... anyhoo, in front of the casino at Biarritz theres a bunch of massive rock outcrops which makes the water swirl and wash you around - definately poo wetsuit stuff at this size.

you can't see the sky, there is a cliff behind the wave. The photo is taken deliberately in against the light to make the bottom black.

Dood, your going the wrong way! Haha, nice picture man. Maybe would be cool to see the sky though?

I surfed there 3 yrs ago and I have to say that it is a super fun wave and the town is also pretty cool to hang around

I'm gonna stick my neck on the line here, but I don't like the look of that wave one bit (not meaning the photo). Call me pussy, but its bigger than it looks and seems a bit shifty. All fair enough til you get caught inside. I need to spend some time in SA or Hawaii to man up a bit I think?!

"As night approached the surfers were warned to stay out of the increasingly dangerous swell. Darkness would surely turn things sour, however with some ingenuity a surfer/electrician rigged donated stadium lighting and called in a helicopter mounted spot-light to keep the lineup illuminated. When asked why go through all this effort he exclaimed that even darkness will not deny the locals good waves at their home spot."
