And Now For Something Completely Different...

Laird and Teahupo'o


Great video of pro surfer Laird Hamilton and friends at Teahupo'o (pronounced Cho-poo), a world-renowned surf-break on the south-east coast of Tahiti. This is an unbelievably powerful reef break. Heavy waves combined with a very shallow shoreline can mean serious injury or even death if you don't make it out of that tube. Enjoy.

Never surfed and lived in Florida almost all my life. I'm not afraid of the sharks, more afraid of getting bonked in the head by a loose surf board. Having said that, I love watching surfers.

There's as not much danger of sharks as people think there is. As PoP alluded to, you're far more likely to die from drowning while surfing than suffering a shark attack. Not that that's any consolation.
