April 3rd, 2020 : Surf’s Up
I found this picture on an Aussie site, surf from the backside, from underwater, and was really impressed.
I tracked it down to an American Photographer Clark Little with an image search that sent me to Instagram and facebook.
Neither site had any description no less an explanation of the details, and I couldn’t find it on his site at all.
In the comments on facebook several people said the had watched his movie on Amazon Prime and the bubble paths are called
air ropes but no idea how or why they’re formed.
I did read the breakers, even big ones will only hold you under for less than 12 seconds.
Then in the same paragraph it said in extreme cases 15 seconds. WTF?
On the facebook page for Clark Little over on the right side is a list called “related pages”.
Related to...? Determined by...? Are they ads?

I don't know where it was taken, maybe it does where it was?

I meant it has never looked like that as I was being Maytagged. Twenty seconds is a long damn time when you've just capped off a giant cough with a nice mouthful of seawater.
that's really really shallow there,you can see the bottom.
Good news, your head would probably be in the air if your feet were on the bottom.
Bad news, the weight of your exposed legs might give you a serious spinal injury if your face is on the bottom.
face only, spine is ok

I read the wave usually breaks when the wave is 1.3 times the depth of the water.
Some of the waves I see him photographing from the outside tower over him buy a factor of 3 or 4 times his height.
Like this one...
But I'm not an ocean person, don't like sand/salt in my pants.

I used to scuba a lot, but out of a boat. the beach is mostly for kids and hanging out. Takes a week to get that crap out of your car.
