Who wants to see big, perfect Fiji again? You do!

Surf News : This footage is mesmerizing. Thanks to Nick Pollet for putting this awesome edit together. It’s hard to fathom how truly massive and perfect these waves are, particularly the wave at the 2:44 mark. Even if somebody was in position, I don’t know they would have wanted anything to do with that wave or if they did if they could even catch it. There is no doubt that this is the swell and conditions that will live on in history one of the greatest if not the greatest session of all time.

We posted blog titled the “Best Wave Never Ridden” back in June, but I’ve change my mind. The wave at 2:44 is hands down the biggest, best and most perfect wave never ridden.

We all know sharks are out there, but pray to never run in to one, but 2 run-ins in the last couple weeks?  Check out the report of the most recent one this past Labor Day weekend out at Yokohama bay.  A free diver had an encounter with a 13 ft. tiger shark that tried to get his fish before he swam in.  At the end of the clip is another diver's encounter recently as well.

El Nino conditions likely to develop during September. Could mean more and bigger storms this winter.

Surf News, 6 September, 2012  ENSO-neutral conditions continued during August 2012 despite above-average sea surface temperatures (SST) across the eastern Pacific Ocean. Reflecting this warmth, most of the weekly Niño index values remained near +0.5°C. The oceanic heat content (average temperature in the upper 300m of the ocean) anomalies also remained elevated during the month, consistent with a large region of above-average temperatures at depth across the equatorial Pacific.

Slater sat early in Tahiti and now sits at 4 on the back half of 2012 with 5 more events. But remember...Surfer Kelly Slater's wave of success is as big as ever.

Slater is not only the most successful surfer ever (11 world titles), but he's also one of the most accomplished athletes ever. And at 40, he's surfing as well as he ever has.

But this is not likely whats going on inside his genious brain. He's not used to losing early esp at Teahupoo. He is however used to coming from behind and nabbing victories. More than any surfer in History. Here's a look into one of Sports most dominant figures ever.
