Kaz accumulates some fun, weird and funny clips from filming surfer kids all the time. here's Things We Do III. These vids show how lucky we are to live where we do.... and that there's nothing like the stoke of a grom just playing in our watery paradise.
The five finalists for the Verizon Wipeout of the Year category of the 2012 Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards are presented for your examination. No surfers were seriously injured in the making of this clip. For more information see the event website at www.BillabongXXL.com.

They skate over and emerse under tons of fast moving, heavy water over shallow reefs. These athletes are also moving at speeds most surfers rarely acheive. These are people like you and me, made of flesh and bone who need oxygen to live. But, that's about the only way we are similar. Notice also that they dont wear helmets!
