I know right...it's like when Slater broke his foot at Teahupoo and got a 10 and said it's one of the easiest places to get a 10 cuz all you have to do is drop in and set your rail. I guess it's like being a pro-skydiver and sayin all you gotta do is pull your chute before you hit a mountain WTF

Holy mother of god!! Great shot and really dig the cropping, it works well :) Just wanna see the next few frames after that one, he must have got sooooo deep!!

Ryry Oct 31, 2010 Rating: -1

thanks! the thing that i liked about this picture was the imagination aspect. the pictures of him coming out spoil the mystery behind the picture. video would also have done this justice

Pipeline as in 1st Reef Pipeline? That's unbelievable. I don't know if the shot misleads by blending into the foreground but from where I'm standing that's got to be at least 20ft on the face. Fucking, sure.

Ryry's avatar

Ryry Oct 29, 2010 Rating: 1

well, that's a legitimately big wave. if you look, you can see the outer reefs actually breaking too. i'm not too sure which reef, but JOB eventually got barreled so deep he came out after the spit on this one.
