Only 300 points now separate the #1 surfer in the world (Adriano de Souza) and the #3 surfer in the world (Mick Fanning). And this guy, Jordy Smith, is right there between them. And between tubes at Kirra, turns at Bells and airs in Rio, he didn’t get there by surfing safe.

Time to pick up some of these great films from Hayao Miyazaki.
“Teahupoo went above and beyond expectations on Monday,” Alex Gray explained. “The morning was pristine six- to 10-foot paddle conditions. Just as Surfline predicted, around 1 o’clock the waves went to a whole other level. Tow only, below-sea-level tube monsters. Straight up scary stuff.”

Long version of Texas Flood by stevie ray vaughn ! Texas Flood is an electric blues album by blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble, released in 1983.
Although “Texas Flood” has three verses of lyrics, the song is more of a prolonged guitar solo, allowing Vaughan to show off his characteristic electric blues style. During live shows, he would often play portions of this song behind his back, arousing an enthusiastic crowd response. Stylistically, “Texas Flood” is structured around the common three chord blues progression. Written and performed in the key of G (sounding F# because of Vaughan’s tuning), it is in 12/8 time, or compound time, which gives it a “slow burning” feel that is common in Texas blues.

Rather than just capturing frozen moments from this beautiful landscape, I have found a whole new hidden world to investigate-that of the micro, or mini, wave. I endeavor to capture those moments the naked eye misses, trying to provide an alternative look to the average wave shots of today. 1,800 images are housed in my collection with each wave being from 5 centimeters to 30 centimeters. I do not use waterhousing thus allowing me to achieve the results I desire.
There are some absolutely amazing photos in this gallery. Truly inspired work.
It is rather interesting to watch Apple’s slide and read the speculation about what Cupertino needs to do to turn itself around.
Granted, Apple is still one of the most profitable companies in the world, even if it has lost more value in the past several months (nearly $300B) than most corporations are worth.
Doomed I tell you, doomed! Time to fold up the awnings and sell off the assets. Never mind that Apple has recently united both software and hardware design under the brilliant guidance of Jony Ive. Pay no mind to the market share and sales facts for all of Apple’s products. This company is done for.
