The weather once again blows in the Philly area today. It's snowy, super windy, and the Shore is getting pounded by a N'oreaster. As I watched Sports Center this morning, they showed a professional skimboarder (who has THAT as a profession?), and it was cool and made me think of summer. I couldn't find it on YouTube, but I found this instead.
Did you watch that? Look at how little the surfer looks compared to that wave! I was scared just watching that thing - who in their right minds thinks it would be cool to SURF IT?!? Why, Sebastian Steudtner of Germany. Badass alert. And if you think big waves are only in Hawaii, Australia, Northern California and the other famous surf spots, well, Portugal has another thing entirely. That is one gnarly wave. Watch it again, and check and see how many seconds it takes just to drop into that wave. It is fantastic video.
I was a big skateboarder back in the day (which explains my affinity to punk rock) and still get out in the surf on the body board. How about surfing? Well, the Rev. Horton Heat wrote a song that captures my surfing abilities. It's a great surf tune with that signature surf guitar sound. Enjoy it.
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
