      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Laird Hamilton at it again?

 

THE MOST AMAZING SPORT on the planet, period.

 

The swell's big enough for Laird, but isnt the hair a bit dark?

I think surfers are the only enthusiasts on the planet who enjoy photographing themselves more than climbers. Good picture, though. does anyone have that "big wave" video that was posted a few months back? That was incredible.

i remember gettng rolled by a monster wave off ocracoke island shortly after a hurricane hit the outer banks - somehow, after getting tossed along the bottom, ass over tea-kettle 9 or 10 times, i came to the top, utterly unable to breathe - i gasped once, then blew an entire handful of sand out of both my nasal cavities - never have figured that one out quite

 

my favorite simpsons' line ever was from the salty old sea captain:

 

"i hate the sea - and everything in it"

I believe the OP is Cyclops off the west coast of Australia. I didn't know it had been surfed although I think it's been boogie boarded. Surprisingly boogie boarders do some bad ass stuff.

 

Cyclops and Teahupoo are the crack of surfing. A big deadly rush that's over in a flash. It's like a fist that comes out of nowhere and pounds.

 

Here's Laird in Teahupoo
