This is different than what Frankie & Annette were doing:

There are a lot of athletic activities out there that require great skill, but there is something about surfing that has always inspired absolute awe in me. It seems more a spiritual endeavor than a sport somehow.

Via The Borderline Sociopathic Blog for Boys comes some footage of the best in the business, Laird Hamilton, doin’ his thing.

  1. Surf movies are way-cool. I saw Bruce Brown take his raw footage for “Endless Summer” from high school gym to high school gym back in the early ’60s in LA’s South Bay. And while I never rode a wave much over six feet (well, maybe eight… at the most), that was more than enough for me. It’s not just scary to have a couple of tons of water come down on your body and mess up your equilibrium, it’s downright terrifying. But ya keep going back… when you’re young. 😉

    Ah… Daphne. I know ya won’t read this as the thread is too old, but: Where were you when we were young, M’Dear?
