Just caught the end of "Endless Summer 2" - as expected , some great big wave action.
Stories of paddling between Corsica and Elbe ( over 80 nautical miles ) and windsurfing
BETWEEN Hawaiian Islands ... well the guy's got some arms on him.
Actually, in motion, they look quite easy to ride.
I mean, I would be absolutely shitting myself, obviously, but they're not steep, no hollow hard lip cracking you like a twig onto a reef, just a massive rush of water trying to drown you. Less scary than, say, Pipeline or Teahupoo!
I saw Nazare make a name for itself last week, although there is a bit of controversy about these "record" waves: they may be tall but unlike Jaws or Mavericks they don't actually break. You might drown, but you will not get smashed into tiny little pieces. (Yeah? I'd like to see you try it, pal.)
