    I couldn't even imagine that ... I've surfed in 18-20 foot surf before, and I absolutely thought I was gonna die .... The weight of those waves when they crash on top of you just sucks the breathe right out of your lungs

    Actually it compresses and pushes the breath out of you.

    The most important wave he'll ever catch: Surfer frantically paddles to escape the jaws of a huge shark as it comes for him in the pristine waters off Western Australia
    • Andy Johnston was surfing at West Beach near Esperance, south-east of Perth, on September 21
    • People ashore spotted the dark shadow looming and started to honk their car horns as a warning
    • The surfers managed to clear the water onto a nearby reef but Mr Johnston opted to stay put
    • Photos showing just how close Mr Johnston came only emerged on Thursday
    • Two weeks later Sean Pollard was attacked at nearby Wylie Bay, east of Esperance, on October 2
    • The 23-year-old lost his left forearm and his other hand at the wrist when he was mauled by a shark

    I understand that there's not an actual "vacuum" effect .... But when you're getting slammed & tumbled underwater like you're in a giant clothes-dryer, it does feel like your breathe is being sucked from your lungs ....

    A lot of his music sounds similar. That sounded a bit like The Thin Red Line.

    Those guys are nuts.
    The guys that are out there filming them are slightly less nuts.
