Missed some, here are a few more from 2006. You can see the write up and lots more images for this year at: http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=964



Mike Bradley went off this year in particular in strapless wave riding




Demion can really toss of the kite loops and in zippo water depth too. Still, those bottom impact have to hurt, yooowch!




Hamish passing on the flat, strapless ... while riding a wave?!




Latino, organizer of the Naples - Ft. Myers events trots along

They do that all day long too during the migration. Spinners a poppin, literally. Surfers seem to ignore them mostly, unless they get nipped. Must smear board wax on it and go back out.

Paul Menta just sent this along to me. It shows the Keys off in a good way and Paul even does some moves on tape ...

Just came across this on the BBC news site. There are quite a few more photos taken by Clark Little from Oahu at:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/ne...00/7916550.stm



Riding a wave into 1/2 " of water, yeeha! Broken neck here I come!



Snow wave



Great shots a bit tough on the photographer though I would guess. Got the shot but here comes the wave, bamm!



The ultimate tube! Looks more like a tunnel of foam, amazing shot.

Reminds me of home, I did a lot of bodyboarding in very similiar shorebreak at my home town in South Africa, in that pic where the rider is dropping in towards the photographer, we used to play chicken on similiar waves with other riders by taking off towards each other and then getting barrelled together, as long as you know how to crash you very seldom get hurt.

Pretty amazing stuff, bet you had some outstanding waves back home. How do you fall to avoid getting hurt when a wave that size is piling driving you into the sand? Can't recall what I was looking up but fractured necks in this sort of setup aren't that uncommon sad to say. Haven't been in extreme locked out conditions like that much, by choice!

Neck injuries do occur, if a rider goes straight down the wave, but if you ride sideways along the wave like the rider in the pic is doing, when the wave bowls over him, he will proboably just roll with the impact and come up through the back of the wave, of course sometimes you do get dragged up the sand, but that is just part of the fun.

Here's to popping out the back then. Being driven into the sand is no picnic. How many of us have been slammed into the bottom in several feet of water after falling off the crest? Hurts just to think about it.

btw, noticed Clark has a website with some great shots available as prints at competitive prices at: http://www.clarklittlephotography.co...gallery_images
