Here comes the wave

SUBHEAD: Found this "Stuck in Tsunami" video of surfer on monster wave. How did I know on February 25th this would be of any interest? Dunno.

Image above: Still frame from video below. No, it's a wave not a tsunami. Yes, that's a surfer.  

 I don't usually post videos for the sake of entertainment unless it is satire. This clip caught my eye and breath. I cannot imagine getting onto such a ride voluntarily, but there are those that do. Once you start there is no getting off. Events just take you along and your heroic, yet incremental, efforts to shape the course ahead relies on skill, luck and experience. I guess we are all in that boat when it comes to where the Peak Oil wave is taking us. As my old friend Tom Teitge (once of Hanapepe Town) was fond of saying; "Surf all Things!"

That's Mike Parsons, by the way. At 77 ft. they say that was one of the biggest waves surfed. But check out this:

Brad,

So was that Jaws on Maui? Is it just a coincidence on the name Parsons?

Actually, I use to think that video was of Jaws, but my searches today seemed to indicate that it was Mavericks.

That would be cool if Mike were a cousin or something, but we are not related.
