you guys are SUCH D-bags...I was here on the morning these photos were taken by rastaman...none of them are photoshopped. plus the reasoning you have for them "being photoshopped" are so retarded. Once you are out in the water with big boys and know what big waves look like up close in person then you wont talk ish in the future. keep critisizing photos from the comfort of your laptop you homos. i'll be out in the water dodging great whites and getting pummelled ONCE AGAIN like i always am during big swells....freezing my balls off. but its all good. no appreciation from MOST OF you guys...(to those of you who like these photos, thank you!!!) anyways...NO WORRIES

if i wanted to put my point across in fewer words i would have learned swahili but as i am, one of the few remaining knights of the english language, i decided to write a rather long and obviously popular comment.

to end this whole photo shop thing. if you look at the other similar picture of mavericks by the same photographer you will see three guys in the back round "chilling" so if that's your argument, that you cant just be chilling there, your a retard. great photo by the way

He's sitting in the channel wondering why everyone thinks he's stupid enough to look the beast in the mouth from below with balls of steel. Great shot even if it has been ripped.

soutie, I'm not so naive as to believe that's the only reason it's a credible photo...as I also said, it was part of a feature they put out, not just random people uploading photos

fuck me if I haven't said it already, but this shot was on surfline.com earlier this week as part of an album about Mavs, so it HAS NOT been photoshopped

Portpipe's avatar

Portpipe Dec 11, 2008 Rating: 6

actually , looking at the other pic the lad has posted its definately real. the surfer isnt even in the line of the wave. hes further down the line humping the swell as it rolls by. every1 here is imagining a massive 3x overhead wave cos thats what they want to see, a great man once said.... "These are small... but the ones out there are far away. Small... far away... ah forget it"!

Portpipe Dec 11, 2008 Rating: -2

i'm gonna keep faith on this one. he's definately real, he's used to shit like that happening everyday through an abusive girlfriend and this is retreat.

eggsandwhich's avatar

eggsandwhich Dec 11, 2008 Rating: -1

sorry to be a killjoy ,but he has to be photoshopped 1. hes exactly on the horizon - whats the chance of that? 2. the far li is definitely further away than he is , the near lip is definitely closer , which means he's in the middle and about to be f**ked. No way he'd sit there. And so ends my thesis Amen

Jack Glick's avatar

Jack Glick Dec 10, 2008 Rating: 2

dunno if anyone mentioned it yet, but this is a shot from Surfline.com's feature about Mavericks the other week...and given that that M2K only has one other shot in his gallery, I'm not so sure this was entirely his effort

soutie's avatar

soutie Dec 10, 2008 Rating: 36

either that or he is way beyond the line of fire of that lip, agreed, there is no way he would chill
