The swimming pool has come alive and wants to eat me

It can be hard to see, in real time, just how much water is moving when a wave breaks. This video gives a hectic insight into the dynamics of a heavy shore-break, and shows just how insignificant the surfers are when they’re caught up in the force of a wave. Remember, these guys are having ‘fun’! Nicely shot too.

  1. This is an awesome video. Ocean waves are gorgeous, as are surfers, but the way they are just getting clobbered terrifies me! I know they love it, but I’ll enjoy the waves from the shore. . Thanks for the post! :)

    Amazing how they stay in control in such hectic waves (mostly). Makes my recent Gold Coast waves seem like ripples!
