Billabong Odyssey

Big Wave surfing. It is now so popular it’s basically mainstream. 60 Minutes did a piece
about Laird Hamilton, for Hell’s sake. But none of that detracts from how very cool is
this video for the
Billabong Odyssey documentary. The
contest is for whichever surfer can surf a 100 foot – yes, 100 foot – wave. This is mind-blowing stuff. Shot in the
water, from copters, underwater, the footage is like nothing you’ve ever seen. These waves are monsters and more often
than not can be found out in the middle of the ocean, rather than on the coast. These could be some of the ballsiest
guys on earth. Check out the Billabong site itself for some sweet pictures and bios on the participants.
