Richard Branson Shows Us the Way

Published by under Kitesurfing,Photos

It’s good to be a billionaire. At least Sir Richard does it right. He owns his own private Caribbean Island, Necker, kitesurfs, and generally lives well, very well. Occasionally, kitesurfing with a naked model on his back. Well done, Sir Richard.

Giant Stingray and Fish With Transparent Head

Published by under Oceans,Photos,Sealife,Videos

No, not surf news. But two cool stories from National Geographic last week. A man caught the largest freshwater fish in the world, a freshwater stingray in the Mekong River in Thailand. The stingray weighed between 550 and 990 lbs (250 to 450 kilograms). The stingray’s body measured 6.6 feet (2 meters) wide by 6.9 feet (2.1) meters long. The tail was missing. If it had been there, the ray’s total length would have been between 14.8 and 16.4 feet (4.5 and 5 meters).

The Largest Freshwater Fish

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) photographed for the first time a surreal fish with a transparent head. With a head like a fighter-plane cockpit, a Pacific barreleye fish shows off its highly sensitive, barrel-like eyes–topped by green, orblike lenses–in a picture released today but taken in 2004. The fish is the first specimen of its kind to be found with its soft transparent dome intact. The 6-inch (15-centimeter) barreleye (Macropinna microstoma) had been known since 1939–but only from mangled specimens dragged to the surface by nets.

Clark Little (website), pictured above photographing the reknowned Waimea Shorebreak, started his career surfing the heaviest shorebreak in the world at Waimea. When he picked up photography, he naturally gravitated toward the impact zone and producing stunning images of the barrel from the shorebreak. Clark’s profile on Club of the Waves.

Clark puts himself in the critical point of the waves and gets rewarded with stunning images. His images are unlike any others. Taken from the heart of the barrel as the wave is balanced between motion and sculpture. Here are a few of his stunning images. (Daily Mail UK post on Clark Little) See Clark’s recent Interview on Good Morning America, Youtube Video of the interview at the end of the post.

Kayaker vs. 300 Ft. Dam, UK

Published by under Photos,Videos

OK, this is not surfing related, but definitely post worthy. A crew of Kayakers took on Britian’s highest dam, 300ft tall and almost 1,150ft long, the Llyn Brianne Dam near Llandovery, Midwales. They raced down the 1,150 ft. spillway at speeds up to 40 MPH. Check out the photos and video below (Daily Mail UK).
