clay barrels (not Marzo's though)

1 19.87 Andy Irons Haw
2 17.73 Kelly Slater USA
3 12.50 Cory Lopez USA
4 8.96 Rob Machado USA

That's the score of the final heat at the Pipeline Masters (the best two waves contribute to a maximum score of 20... A.I. was pretty close to that!).
And I missed it... I just can't believe it!
I can't wait to watch the video of the final ( check when day 7 is there).

Well, let's post some barrels anyway.


Very Christmasy, with the red wave and the light of the Christmas tree reflected by the table...

I did the windsurfer and the wave, Sharon did the surfer girl.


You can't see it in the barrel, but the board is a fish!
And look at her hair!


Give some colored clay to two adults in Maui and that's what you get...

PS. In case you didn't get the joke in the title, check this. If you got time, watch the video... 17 years old from Maui.

Hi christmasy workers,

nice work!!!
Allthough the japanese windsurf Lady, the italian, ahm, Ladies and the ones on Ulli's page seemed more real to me. Also liked Michelle's backflip and the photo's of the island(s) and the interesting landskapes and vegetations.

Your Video is awsome again...people hellish swimming for their equipement, huh, a lot of traffic, looks dangerous sometimes... well, we're all so previleged again!!!

Thanks for your answer refering the canoequestion, still keeps me thinking on. Buon fin di settimane!

love it, luckily.... as i am sure this is what I'm getting for christmas (under $5 bucks deal)!! I also love the fact that the leash reminds me of an (forgive my spelling) umbilical cord. That's how attached I am to my board!!

Chris, do you stutter by any chance...? just kidding!

A few more words to clarify the canoe thing. A rudder works as long as the boat it belongs to has a forward motion relative to the water it is sitting into. If there is no relative forward motion, like when a boat is not moving at all in still water or when my canoe is riding a wave moving at the same speed of the wave, the rudder simply doesn't work.
Why does the paddle work then? Because I stick it in the water on the face of the wave, in a section of the ocean that is not moving forward yet. The rudder, instead, is all the way at the back of the canoe and sits exactly where the wave is actually closing. It is surrounded by water moving forward at the same speed as the canoe.
I hope it's clearer now. It wasn't easy to figure that out for me...

Adam, are you insinuating that such artwork was performed under the influence?

Meesh, that maybe WAS your christmas present...
I love the umbilical cord analogy!
Hey, next time you see Ian Walsh, ask him if he hit the bottom on that wave.
Did you see A.I. floater on the lip at the end of that wave in the final? That was pretty shallow too!

If I’d known my art was to end up on the blog, I’d have done a much better job!

No, Cammar, luckily I only suffer from this kind of viretuel stuttering, mostly out of the reasons mentioned by Adam, I'm afraid, sorry!

Just enjoyed the photos from the flikr page, the slideshow is so very nice and the white on top of the photos disapeared.
Thank you for the good explanation of the canoe thing, got it now and hopefully dreams about conoeing tonight!

Sharon, your part of the art is lovely if you are not in presenting-on-blog shape...!

Saludos,

chris

Good night,
