1000 FRAMES PER SECOND

Surfing @ 1000 FRAMES PER SECOND

Every once in a while I try to explain to someone what surfing or windsurfing is like.
I don't know why I do... because you either understand the ocean; or you don't.
If you are that person who slips into a drysuit or a 6 mil because you have to go out when it's 35 degrees and 30 knots, or the swell is just right... you understand.

The closest I have ever come to explaining it to someone, is to say, "it's like a car accident".
"Everything slows down. Milliseconds take seconds; seconds feel like minutes".
Maybe this video will help you understand?
