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.

2 reasons Surfing is far superior
1st. Real Waves aren't duplicated or manufactured. you have to be there in that right time and place for the magic to happen.
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 knowUpload

...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.
(pic 3 is my favorite. that spot was by far the best I've ever seen it)
