yeah my pics on myspace that are "brown" are texas...
cant miss our beautiful water.
that crazy wave your talking about is "teahpoo" in tahiti, it will splatter your brains all over the reef. its the thickest wave in the world. it comes from really deep water and then hits a very shallow reef and actually breaks on itself. the wave has no back, its weird. they say that pipe claims more injuries than any other wave in the world. honesly, i dont see how.
yeah i used to live in CA for 4 years. tustin CA..about 20 minutes from huntington beach. loved it..
here is a video of pipe vs teahpoo! a lot of pipe segments and then a segment of teahpoo and you tell me which looks worse. trust me, youll know teahpoo when you see it...just look for the "THICKNESS OF THE LIP!" http://surfline.com/video/vids/2006/aug/vids/ncl_300_otfhealy.wmv
