I'm sure most guys would have seen it on the news last night but for those that didn't - OH my God it was unbeleivable vision.

These guys have got rocks in their head.

most people think crikey, but if you havn't been on an overhead wave it's hard to imagine the enormity #of what these guys achieve.

To try it out grab a skateboard & go to the top of the hill at Queens Rd Kingston (or the hill at the new Botanic Gardens at Mt Cootha). Mt Buderim even ...

You need to do this during a cyclone (or have some guys drive in front of you blasting you with a gerni),so gale force winds are spraying rain into your face & blinding your eyes. Make sure there is lots of gravel on the road to make the down hill run as bumpy as possible - then have some of your mates tow you over the top (cause in reality the hill is moving much faster than you could ever go).

Now for the final touch as you clear the crest & begin to plummit down, have a crazy mate release the handbrake on a Semi behind just behind you. The semis engine needs to be redlining - the noise - deafening. This is the closeout just waiting for you to fall off #:o.

Good clean fun surfing hey.

The guy on the jet ski tows the surfer into the wave...it is impossible to paddle fast enough to catch a wave of that size,

Ever hear of Charles Darwin? Guys like that don't usually last very long. Then again, guys like that don't usually care. :-/
