Not a bad photo, but to the point, if I'm not mistaken then that guy is the biggest prick I've ever surfed with in the UK. If he isn't giving it the stinkeye down at Porthtowan he's paddling round you for every single set on the lefts at Wrestles. If the guy is reading this then make the most of your teeth, I doubt you'll have them for that much longer.

It does look like jelly! I think the photo has been altered a bit, but wouldn't it be awesome to surf a jelly wave, get barreled a grab a bit to eat.
