STR8SHOOTR I grew up surfing. Still do very often. But big wave surfing seen in the Mavericks vid is something totally different. They are a different breed of surfer. Wipe out, be held under for minutes, being tossed and pounded on the bottom. Life and death shit. No thanks, I'll stick with 8 foot and under.

snowklinger The Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau is about to run. I wonder if it will get streamed.

So much heavy surf right now during the pro break, they need to turn the cameras back on....

deagol I have tried surfing once, but would never describe myself as a surfer. Having said that, I try to snowboard with a surfing inspired style and not a skateboarding inspired style..

I also do whitewater canoeing and can, on occasion, surf a standing wave in a river. Not the same as surfing, but still challenging and fun. I've done wakeboarding a few times.

I saw the film RIDING GIANTS several years ago and it blew my mind...

amazing sport.

My husband is not the best swimmer & he had the time of his life picking up surfing. We were at a low key beach, rarely was the water over his head but we could still catch waves with longboards... you spend your time hanging on to a massive flotation device so not too difficult even with less than stellar swimming... wetsuit seems like it helps u float a bit too.
