what kind of sounds do you think laird hamilton heard when he was underwater for about 100 seconds shortly after this picture was taken?

that is the kind of music i would like to make.

Mating: This is harder. Obviously, being human, it is awkward, but not impossible to mate in open water. It is easier to have the dolphin in a shallow area (like the shallows just off the beach) around 1 1/2 to 2 feet deep. This is usually comfortable enough for both the dolphin and you. Gently, you should roll the dolphin on her side, so she is lying belly-towards you. You can prop yourself up on an elbow, and lie belly to belly against her. You may want to use the other arm to gently hold her close, and place the tip of your member against her genital slit. She will, if interested, arch her body up against you, taking you inside her body. There is usually a fair bit of wriggling and shifting, usually to get comfortable, both outside and inside. Once comfortable, though, females initiate a series of muscular vaginal contractions that rub the entire length of your member. They may also thrust rhythmically against you, so enjoy the experience while you can, since you will rarely last longer that a minute or two. Just prior to her climaxing, she will up the speed of her contractions and thrusts. It is interesting to note that the times I have mated with females, they have timed their orgasm to mine. Whether they do this consciously or not, I do not know, but it is a great feeling to have two bodies shuddering against each other at the one time.

One thing to note. Whether you masturbate or mate a fin, male or female, always spend time with them afterwards. Cuddle them, rub them, talk to them and most importantly, show them you love them. This is essential, as it helps to strengthen the bond between you. Like a way of saying that this wasn't just a one-night fling. The dolphins appreciate it, and they will want your company more the next time you visit them.

#1. Go to ABC bakery in Chinatown (650 Jackson)
#2. Order in Cantonese:

[phonetically]
"yet gaw yeet nai tscha mmgoy" = one hot milk tea please
"leung gaw yeet nai tscha mmgoy" = two hot milk teas please

[note: hong kongese slang/slur their L and N sounds so you have to pronounce L and N sounds like a cross between and L and an N... this is hard for my *ahem* western tongue to do]

#3. pay ($1.50 per) and say "doe-chay" = thank you
#4. Drink, enjoy and you will be riding high on caffeine for about 12-14 hours (if you are a lightweight like me).

this is a great movie and highly recommended to everyone!!!

the only real negatives are sam george (he's in the movie about 10 minutes total). HOWEVER, you get some awesome archival footage of greg noll at waimea, jeff clark at maverick's, laird hamilton at 60'+ (measured hawaiian style = backs of the wave, roughly half the height of the face) peahi (aka JAWS), laird on that impossibly thick teahupoo "pipeline-on-steroids" ride... let me see if i can google that pic...

gygax! (gygax!), Friday, 6 August 2004 14:49 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

look at the thickness of this wave... remember: teahupoo breaks in about 3-4 feet deep water on top of extremely mangled and sharp coral.

the crazy thing about that break is that there are 2 waves, one coming from the left (due to the reform from the diagonal jetty) combined with a traditional shorebound wave which amplifies the amplitude.

Also, it breaks in very, very shallow water on to a sandbar. lots of broken arms, collar bones and necks. it's a crazy wave:

he's a chiropractor. actually he does chiropractic biophysics. i guess they get a "dr" before their name? he went to school for 4 yrs.

i'm not sure if he's in either of those movies (i kinda doubt it), but he has Riding Giants playing in the office to entertain those waiting to see him.

towed in = lame

i can't tell from those photos if he was towed in. i don't see any jet ski in that first photo. also, why is it lame? could you surf those waves w/o it?

jaxon (jaxon), Saturday, 7 January 2006 01:00 (twelve years ago) Permalink

you can't even tell if that is a tow in since in the first pic you can tell he drops down on the wave instead of swinging into it.

man, all towing in is getting a ride to the party. nothing wrong with that.

ShawShank Rambo Connection (Carey), Saturday, 7 January 2006 02:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

this stuff simultaneously amazes and frightens me. jealous of, maybe threatened by, those who have done it, and want to try myself. but i think i'd be too focused on savoring to be sufficiently in control. on second thought, i don't think i'd ever get past the fear enough to savor. hmm.

that thing in the movie about mavericks being like the grand canyon is pretty otm.

gabbneb (gabbneb), Saturday, 7 January 2006 03:47 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i love the grain of the wave in that last photo

gabbneb (gabbneb), Saturday, 7 January 2006 03:48 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i mean, i injured myself on a fricking sled

gabbneb (gabbneb), Saturday, 7 January 2006 03:54 (twelve years ago) Permalink

it's pretty clearly a tow-in. in the first picture he's pretty far out on the shoulder for a paddle in, especially one at mavericks. Look at that long trail behind him...you can see a kind of fan of spray on the right hand side, where he was approaching the curl of the wave, and then turned to start going down the line. Even more clearly evidence of a tow-in is the fact that that is a pretty short board...looks like something in the 7'6" to 8'6" range. Paddle-in boards for mavs are more like in the 9'6" plus range.

The doctor in 'riding giants' (a pretty cool fick btw...especially the old 60's footage) was probably Dr. Mark Renneker, kind of a big-shot on the no-cal big-wave scene.

I've towed into pretty big surf (at todos santos), stuff that I'd have no chance of paddling into and making the drop, and given a 4 or 5 months to practice, I would tow into that wave. I'd never paddle into it though. It's really on a total other level of difficulty.

http://www.surfline.com/surfaz/images/curren_tom/jh_tcurren3_h.jpg

That is the quintessential surf pic for me. Like I said, given a few months of practice (and the will to do it...) I could pull off tow-ins at mavericks. Given a few years (and the balls) I could paddle in at mavericks.Given a few years of concerted practice (and the balls to do it), pretty much anybody could surf big waves. On the other hand, I could surf for hours and hours every day of my life and never ever do a cutback as clean and graceful as that one.

I know I know, not very noize. That's still a damn heavy wave your brother is on, and he deserves massive respect for doing it.

"He went down the face of the wave. He made a bottom turn and he totally made the wave, but the water caught up to him and it just kind of engulfed him and raced him down," said the surfer, who did not wish to be identified because he had taken the day off from work but did tell his employers that he would be surfing.

Sales Rep for THE ENDLESS SUMMER merchandise

Description: In 1964, filmmaker Bruce Brown decided to follow two surfers, Mike Hynson and Robert August, around the world in search of the perfect wave. On a budget of only $50,000 and a 16mm camera, he captured the essence, the adventure, and the art of surfing. Following summer and surf around the world, the result was the iconic "The Endless Summer." From the waters of West Africa, through the seas of Australia, to Tahiti, two surfers from California achieved their great dream: to try the wildest waves in the world. In reaching this goal, they created what would become one of the most popular and legendary films of an entire generation and one that busted through the cultural barrier and into the eyes of mass-market theater-goers for the first time ever.

Even today, almost 50 years later, "The Endless Summer" remains as beloved and iconic as ever. Bruce Brown Films is currently looking for experienced, motivated sales reps to carry our merchandise products to stores all over the SunBelt states and beyond. Product lines include, shirts, sunglasses, hats, watches, flip-flops, surfboards and so much more. The products, due to their association with the iconic "Endless Summer," have a strong competitive advantage over similar, non-branded products and will often become one of the top sellers for surf shops, apparel stores and the like. They really do sell themselves.

Additionally, the 50 year anniversary of the movie is coming up in 2014 and there are large marketing campaigns that are going to be rolled out in honor of this. Demand is projected to spike sharply at that time and the only way to take advantage of that is to start carrying these products now. This truly is a great opportunity, and one that can potentially be very lucrative for our sales reps. If interested please contact, endlesssummerdan✧✧✧@gm✧✧✧.c✧✧.

Requirements: We are looking for motivated, intelligent, personable, hard-working sales reps for the Bruce Brown merchandising line. Experience not required but definitely a plus.
