    Good one Bill.

    I'll bet he was thinking how lucky he was that it spat him out.

    I surfed an 80ft wave, but forgot to call the records people.

    Ah well, guess I have to go bigger next time!

    (may be blatant lie)

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.

    In your dreams Tommo, Years ago in another lifetime , I Surfed , On a Mal with no leg ropes in those days a true 15 footer at Dee Why, That was scarey enough , Back in the days when you used to have your board registered ( Warringah Shire Council) If you did'nt the clubbies would impound your Board for 2 Weeks

    jury is still out for Mongo - is it extreme courage or extreme madness ?? Either way, Mongo wishes he could have experienced it.

    I bet he was crapping in his pants, all the way down.

    Lucky he was in the ocean!
