    Brent Weldon is largely a water videographer, seems to be careful about safety, but um, yes, he's right under some of this stuff

This is my horror film. I watch the wedge all the time. It scares me. Really. I can't look away though.

The exploding backwash into dry sand looks very fun.

Brent has made some rather beautiful videos. This one explains the frequency of smashed ankles.

    Somehow managed to do a double reply. So here's some odd stuff from the Cape region, South Africa.

    This explainer narrated in roughly the style of Bruce Brown explains some of the attraction. It does make for superlative bodyboarding, but high-end bodyboarding is an art of extreme waves (like that video above). The place has a high injury rate, scary number of broken necks, but it apparently isn't Newport Beach's worst spot for fatalities.
