    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Check Spain out Mundaka -youll see as the guy pulls in on different sections the wave grows .Great place for surf France and Spain and France is a an eye opener on the beaches -rather liberal to say the least

    Elb is famous in the surfing world, hes on surfs up. Hes the penguin with short legs, round body and a big head. Apparently he didnt need much of a make over for this part. Hes also plays himself in the hobbit , but there was no surfing in that movie so mite be hard to pick him out.

    PS when Elb talks about long boards, they are really 6 ft thrusters to the rest of us.

    Always wanted to get to Biarritz. Never made it out if the South.

    Big Wave at Papatowai - YouTube

    Balls of fricken steel those buggers. I was watching something the other night where these 2 mates, Ozzys I think, went around the world big wave surfing. They were not young either. Had to be towed in by jet-ski. The waves were that big and close to reefs, they wore helmets FFS!

    Mate now days, anything over head height, 4' is big. Prefer 2' 3' sup fun waves. I cut my teeth on Auckland West Coast waves, to me bigger was better in those days. Mind you was also younger, fitter, and more bullet proof. Oh how things change. This year Whitianga bar was 4mtrs, Son (Hot Water Beach life Guard) says lets do it Dad. Dad say says Son if I can't swim it I don't surf it, very wise.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
