Tom Curren's first wave in J-Bay

When I was reading Riding the Magic Carpet by Tom Anderson, I was wondering what Tom Curren's rides at J-Bay must have looked like so that Anderson decided that this was his personal final surfing destination in the early 90s.

With the Clash of the Icons having been held at the Billabong Pro in J-Bay this month, old footage of Tom Curren has been dug out.

Check out these clips from the movie "Searching for Tom Curren" with Curren's first ever rides at J-Bay:

High quality surf cams in Denmark

A friend of mine sent me this Link with high quality surf cams in Demark. Enjoy!

Surfer and Shark on Google Earth

Searching the web for Google Earth images with snapshot surfers, I came across this article on Daily Telegraph.

And it really looks like some big fish cruising along the beach while people surfing at North Steyne:

Apparently this is the same beach, where Paul Hayden's set his book Last Wave.
