Default Taking a 90' wave

I'm not doing it in a boat but this guy did it on a board.

Incredible..we both had the same idea!
I just called Dan to inquire about having OL build me such a board. He did not pick up,,,,,the message on his machine stated he was getting himself sprayed up at the tanning booth. In colors & design to match OL's latest 52"er. Fellow OL owners expressed concerns that it might clash with his peach colored argyle socks (custom embroidered L & R in addition to sporting the OL logo) Those guys are over the top! Simply amazing!

The small pieces of debris in the water are from the OL the surfer hit.

Hurt me? No, but what about these guys? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNrYqs-OAKE

Potato chip powerboats can be hazardous! The paint is the strongest part of the build!!!!!!!!
Remember....Denile isn't just a river in Egypt!....
