Surfing 25-foot Waves
June 16 2010
has a great slowed-down tempo as it goes along.
I call it "buried" or "retarded" tempo. I used it all the time in my recordings.
And these are some of the best surfers most of us will see. The waves are huge.
From Chris Arkenberg on Boing Boing:
a surfer but I'm not crazy. I wouldn't go anywhere near these waves. But I really
like this video by iamkalaniprince capturing a seemingly relentless set
of 25+ foot peaks rolling in at Jaws on the North Shore of Maui.These monsters come barreling across the deep water trenches of the Pacific then heave up
onto the Hawaiian reef creating some of the biggest and fastest waves in the world. The slow-motion (and the glorious Canon optics)
underscores, to me, the majesty of this great dance and the strange harmony we human apes find amidst the power of nature."
