I am working on my associates so right now I am just doing general studies. I am taking speech and astronomy online and intermediate algebra( I jacked up my placement test and have to take it). Speech online is a bad grade because the teacher is ridiculous and my algebra teacher keeps changing due dates and I keep getting them confused and getting F's on the assignments.

I must of watched that about 10-15 times since I saw it on tv and then bought the DVD. It's incredible.

Not as good, but another awesome documentary I reccomend Bud if you haven't seen it is Billabong Odyssey.

I'll bookmark that for later! Odyssey is a group of pro surfers, with Billabongs backing (funding) to try and find and ride the biggest waves available. As soon as a big swell pops up, no matter what they are doing they all hop on a plane and are there within 24 hours to ride it.

Very good watch.

Basically a new version of Laird Hamilton's "Strapped" crew then? Because that's all they did, don't know if they're around anymore though :/

Laird and CJ Nelson are my idols, they are so damn cool


And BTW, everybody, watch this video and deny the awesomeness of big wave surfing:

Lol that's the opening scene to Billabong Odyssey :P

I still think Lairds Teahupoo ride is the single greatest wave ever ridden. (which, you've just had the pleasure of watching after viewing 'Riding Giants' )

That wave is soooo scary, shallow water over reefs and on top of that the wave itself is just so thick, fast and big

Laird is the master of big wave surfing, nuff' said

The illness went to another level. Had my favorite pizza earlier, didn't even feel the taste.
