Look at this....

COULD this be the greatest sporting innovation since the winged keel? Kelly Slater, the greatest surfer ever, is preparing possibly his greatest gift to the sport - The Chunnel. The thruster surfboard is considered the biggest innovation in surfing and, 30 years on, Slater is attempting to revolutionise the sport with the four-finned Chunnel. The concept is based on a U-class powerboat, with a hollowed-out channel/tunnel down the middle of the board that is designed to draw air out of the water, therefore compressing the water over the hole to make the ride smoother and faster.

The surf left a fair bit to be desired but I do like this sizzling shot of a lone surfer on the east coast this morning.

Bowled Over

Plenty of opportunity to get skittled at the east coast bowling alley yesterday and again today. Couldn't beat that weather eh?

Nihiwatu is a very special place. The surf, the island, the people...
Perfect weather, waves: watch this space, more to come.
This video is kinda long (7 min), but it gives a good idea of how it was. A few experimental videos from GP's Go Pro head cam are in there too!
