Surfing is a funny thing.

It’s funny because it happens in the ocean and it’s funny because the ocean is unpredictable. To enter the ocean is to enter a world of boundless possibility — you have absolutely no idea what’s going to happen. You might get barreled. You could get eaten by a shark. You could even bump into Julian Wilson in the year of 2007, and he’d be wearing a puka shell necklace. Boundless possibility.

Here we see Eithan Osborne and Stevie Pittman embracing the terror on a SURFING Magazine trip to Samoa (which you’ll be seeing in a forthcoming issue and movie, Teen Age). Eithan and Stevie are about to take a licking, compliments of boundless possibility. It’s surfing, and isn’t it funny?

    This doesn’t look so bad compared to a canyon set at Blacks during winter.

    Yeah except at Blacks you can stand on sand… Wearing a wetsuit, not reef in only a pair of boardies.

    How about 40 giant wind swell waves on your head at frigid Ocean Beach (SF)??!!

  • ridingwaves

    No doubt, the beach with more water moving around than any I have surfed..If caught inside on a medium-big day good luck….OB doesn’t get the respect it has earned….
    I respect it a lot

    Ditto for me. OB at size is the hardest place I have ever surfed

    Throw in the element of reef here girls and thats what makes it a whole nother ballgame. But quitcherbitchin’ cause this picture is just a nice representation of what it was like for all of us as groms/adults surfing real reefbreak waves for our first time. 6′ foot set swings in, you can only swim 5-6 feet deep, sharp reef, OOH SHIT. Im out.
