At least he held on to the ring!
Oh man that sux! A rogue wave swept this guy away while he was filming. Wait for it...
I bet there's a whole lot of sea sick people on that ship!
These guys are just plain nuts! They are risking their lives for some insane waves!
Its so cold here, the waves are freezing on shore.
Paddling On The Crest of a Huge Wave
Teahupoo, Tahiti is widely known throughout the world of surfing as having the most powerful break on the planet. There are certainly larger waves found breaking at other places in the world, but none that break with such impact and ferocity as found at Teahupoo.
This is why you shouldn't go that close to the beach with your boat.
"I filmed my monitors playing a 61 hertz sine wave tone at 60fps. I expected to just see the speaker slowly move in and out, but ended up with a weird wobble effect. I believe it's because of the rolling shutter effect in DSLR cameras."
Waving back is the polite thing to do.
