I used to employ some Polish painters fairly regularly, but the only words I can understand are right in the middle when the cameraman yells: "Faster, faster, faster" at the guy in the car. I used to yell that a lot.

There are many barriers between us. Language, that sort of thing. But I recognize my brothers when I see them.
It's a stroke of genius, really; they'll pay you just as much to stop doing that as they will for winning the show.
Loved the end. Here's a pile of money! Stop doing that!

Garrett McNamara. You've got to keep your eye on guys named Garrett. They're wildmen.
Apparently there are world records for this sort of thing. That wave is reportedly 90 feet tall, breaking the record of 77 feet.

The French Alps are mighty pretty when seen through a slight haze of dirtbike exhaust.

These fellows could get an entire wing in the Borderline Sociopathic Blog For Boys Pantheon of Greats. The Pantheon is right next to the Borderline Sociopathic Parthenon.

The Best Thing About Surfing China's Rivers Is That After You Get Dipped Into The Water A Few Times, You're Rustproof
A tidal bore, from Wikipedia:
Bores occur in relatively few locations worldwide, usually in areas with a large tidal range (typically more than 6 metres (20 ft) between high and low water) and where incoming tides are funneled into a shallow, narrowing river or lake via a broad bay. The funnel-like shape not only increases the tidal range, but it can also decrease the duration of the flood tide, down to a point where the flood appears as a sudden increase in the water level. Note the tidal bore takes place during the flood tide and never during the ebb tide.
A tidal bore may take on various forms, ranging from a single breaking wavefront with a roller — somewhat like a hydraulic jump — to "undular bores", comprising a smooth wavefront followed by a train of secondary waves ("whelps"). Large bores can be particularly unsafe for shipping but also present opportunities for river surfing.
