I have been harrassed by seals a few times. I have had them pull my leash with their mouth and pull me backwards while paddeling. I thought I was stuck on a rock. My friend was knocked off his board when a seal hit him from the bottom. The best was being chased out of the water by a HUGE Elephant Seal on the north coast of Santa Cruz. We heard a load noise like someone trying to kickstart a Harley. We looked around and there was a Elephant Seal charging at us. He got about 15' from us and dove under water. He popped up again and did it again and again until we were onshore. I guess there was a pup around. <BR>Wadd$

2 reasons Surfing is far superior <BR>1st. Real Waves aren't duplicated or manufactured. you have to be there in that right time and place for the magic to happen. <BR>2nd. Size matters. I was discussing with a PRO wakeboarder about the inequities of pay between pro wakeboarders and pro surfers. I pionted out that when I ride behind his x-star with 3,000 lbs of weight I am a little out of my comfort zone but will certainly take my turn. If Jamie O'Brien said hey bro surfs up it's beautiful 8' backdoor pipeline I would have to decline because I like to remain alive for my children. I have only been surfing for over twenty years but the truth is the truth. if you surf you know<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/438612.jpg" alt="Upload">

wow James -- <BR>that shot makes me homesick for CA. <BR>if only more mornings were like that!

...and you can't get any of this behind a boat. It doesn't get much better then being a goofyfoot in California during a good south swell. <BR>(pic 3 is my favorite. that spot was by far the best I've ever seen it) <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.surfline.com/surfnews/photo_bamp.cfm?id=8826&amp;ad=1" target="_blank">http://www.surfline.com/surfnews/photo_bamp.cfm?id=8826&amp;ad=1</a>
