You gave away nothing. Who cares about showcasing something. Its not like you gave people directions to that shit.

well, respect or not, some of those waves were heavy as hell.

skimxsurfer
10-05-2006, 05:50 PM
they look down right stupid.. you see the thickness of some of those waves... can you imagine how bad it hurts to get thrown down from the top of the wave on a body board.. damnn!! thats like breakin ribs.. ill stick to skimboardin and breakin arms

solvenTim
10-05-2006, 08:28 PM
pussy.................................just kiddin man.


the way some of those waves were breaking scared me. expecially the very second wave, i flinched.

lovestoskim
10-05-2006, 08:38 PM
people surfing those waves is much more impressive and mind blowing, but anyone in waves of that size is insane, not all dick draggers deserve respect for that video though. looks like the breaks could include chopes, cyclops and shipsterns bluff.

do you guys know if the stories about bodyboarders dying at the wedge are true. i was told by a guy that sponges there often that one guy got his head stuck in the rocks after not making the drop in and then the next wave ripped his body off his head. another was that one guy was padling around and felt something touch his leg and he reached down and it was another guy burried in the sand and they had to dig him out. just stories i have heard but kinda creepy if in fact they are true.

Tony
10-06-2006, 10:03 AM
i heard the sand one. but the rock one has to be bullshit unless that guy really was stupid and went at the rocks. maybe thouhg, i dont know.

i think the way oyu die at wedge is drowning, or landing wrong on your neck., but i dotn think its as gnarly as people make it out to be all the time.

Longest shacks, highest airs, insane manuverability...

Bodyboarding does have advantages.

the airs were huge but they flailed around too much and ruined the style of it

keep in mind this is like 10 minutes of surfing the intraweb.

the only prob i have wit those are that they are taken from a water level so it makes it look higher. not saying they still arnt high, but it really doesnt look that much higher. hard to tell. but yeah stading up when dropping in is harder no matter what.

....like dragging your cock around. and they dont get longer tubes than surfers do, sponges have a lot less drive than surfboards. maneuverability is also not as good as a surfboard because of the lack of fins.

he isn't dropping in, he was riding high on the wave and it dropped out on him, and he pulled the drop. that's super gnarly on a wave that size, to me at least.

Jeebus, he has a crazy amount of air time - funny, they edited out the landing on that one (if he ever actually came down :eek: )

i know i can see that bump. when i said dropping in i meant any type of decent standing up. or riding down the line for that matter if u want to get that technical

I said bodyboarding has its advantages, but I never said it was better than surfing. I have no problem with bodyboarders.

Oh, and with a surfing, it might be double overhead, but if you think about it, to a bodyboard it could be 20x overhead. Pfft, how many of you have surfed a 20x overhead wave?
