I'm alive...barely.

Double overhead sets..I got pummeled...but had a great time.
The lifeguards would not let us out, but they left at 5pm.
It was blowing hard offshore, took me 30 minutes to make it outside the outside break.
The inside break was a killer.

Right up there with the biggest waves I ever surfed.

Only reason I left was because it was getting pretty dark

My arms are still throbbing.

Took a video before I went out....I will post it later

The sun was out last night about 6pm.

Right now it is a little breezy, sun is out, waves are flat

The Dolphins, that's way cool Mur! In 2008, I spent a week in Galveston in June. One day the water was so flat it looked like a mirror, and there were schools of fish close to the shore. My daughter and I were out swimming in neck deep water and dolphins were swimming around us feeding on the fish. I decided to just stand there and wait, see what the dolphins would do. Two of them circled me and one of them brushed against my leg. They are beautiful creatures. It was a great experience.

I was raised in Kansas and had never seen the ocean until I went to Hawaii in 1980. I spent three days on a surf board. I had no interest in doing anything else, yet I was too chicken to go out after the really big waves. After those three days I was burnt to a crisp and my arms felt like pudding poured into a sock, but it was soooo much fun! (Heh, they made it look so easy on Hawaii Five-O.)

Hi everyone,

I clearly remember my first experience with wild dolphins. It was in Santa Barbara (Ca) and I saw maybe a dozen of them passing by not too far away from the shore. I grabbed my surfboard and paddled out to get closer but from what I remember, I did not & could not get any closer than maybe 70 ft from them. I could ear them pretty well (breathing) and I even saw some parasites on their skin (like clams).

More recently, I went out fishing humboldt squids at sunset here in the French riviera. We spotted a few blue and white dolphins (i.e : Stenella coeruleoalba) probably hunting since some of them were making big flat dives. Some minutes later, a few of them were swimming underneath the boat and I took some nice pics with my cell-phone. I tried to feed them some sardines but they did not even bother about them.

From my little experience with dolphins (when I go out sport or big game fishing), when these guys are in the wild, they usually are very shy and wary of humans and they better be. Sometimes in our local news, you can read articles about some dumb & evil fxcks who shot at them with their rifle or spearfishing guns.

Since you guys were talking about surfing, check this guy out, surfing jaws @ night :

I also heard that Laird Hamilton wants to surf a rogue wave...


Cheers,
Buck

A Dolphin has intelligence equal to ours or, who knows, greater than ours. They are not treated well by us. Now suppose a visitor from elsewhere comes here and saw this treatment of a fellow intelligent earthling, would they want to stop here for a chat?

Most people treat dolpins nicely.

Are we to be judged as a group, or individually?

I stand corrected, but after all a person has to learn and adjust.

I'm not here to correct you.

I like you.

The point I was making is that there are good people, bad people and people that are both.

Most of us I think have elements of both.....some more than others.

That's kind of the human experience.

Even murders might love their moms.

Maybe not....but each of us make choices every day....and others judge us on these choices.

But before these choices are condemned, it's best to explore the reasons behind the choices.

If we are being visited, and I'm not convinced we are, (although I concede some type of phenomena has and does occur), I'm hopeful these visitors don't judge us solely on our mistakes...because although our mistakes are many, so are our triumphs.....Love and Forgiveness
