Anyone else pissed off at the WSL"s new broadcast format for contests on CBS Sports ?  I don't want a greatest turns mish mosh, I want to see the whole heats, the whole rides.  Being far from the water, I really do enjoy seeing the whole thing, the lulls, the closeout sets, the ones that went un ridden.

Can't have anything nice ...

Still dealing with Slater's wave machine, half way through it.  It really is great and a profound achievement but it seems boring almost.  Too predictable.  It may become something like compulsories in figure skating.
 

it seems like you'd be able to get the entire footage on demand

Heh, turns out I had the wrong location for the original picture.  Skeleton Bay is a similar wave in Africa, but it is unique in that it's all sand and therefore, very temporary geologically speaking.  

The picture that I posted is actually from a place in Peru.  I looked hard at the picture and what I thought was seaweed washed up on the beach were some trees that just plain didn't make sense.  This point break in Peru will last for eons because its all rock and will take forever to erode.

Skeleton Bay: The Death of a Wave Foretold

If my life had gone as planned, I would have become a marine geologist specializing in waves and erosion.  It would have been the preface for traveling the world to study different kinds of beaches and their waves.  Surfing the waves would have been required in order for real in depth investigation. {#Whistle}  Didn't work out that way, but at least I did have a plan and a dream.

The conditions for such a long run of identical waves have to be just right. It could happen as a fluke once in a while most places, I guess, but for it to be predictable like that? That's got to be unique. Seems like one good winter storm would mess up the sea floor enough to wreck the effect. Drop a bit of seaweed...

Do you recognize this picture ?  Do you know who this is ?  Or the exact location of this picture without thinking twice or having to look it up ?  Then you were there in the beginning.

This is what I grew up in the middle of and indelibly shaped the rest of my life.  I would do it all over again.

 “Surfing is kind of like the Dance of Shiva. Shiva dancing on the dwarf of ignorance…it will always be a way to keep in touch with the Earth and forget about all the bullshit and all the madness of modern life. That’s why I love it so much.” — el griffo, 1989

Before reading, I suggest putting on a pot of coffee.
