Six Foot Surf in the Severn River

Wed, 3 March 2010

Hundreds of onlookers and members of the media turned up yesterday to watch and record a cranking six foot wave surging up the River Servern in the UK. The Severn Bore, which surges upstream along the river through Gloucestershire, does so a couple of times a month, but March is generally a big month. The wave was the largest of the year. It reached a height of almost seven foot at the peak. A bore is created by the tide from the ocean flowing into a ever-decreasing channel up a river.

Tue, 2 March 2010

Quiksilver Pro Highlights Day 1

Sun, 28 February 2010

Activists Hit One For Dolphins

Fri, 26 February 2010

The trailer for The Cove, award winning doccie that exposes slaughter and greed in Taiji, Japan, where former dolphin trainer Ric O’Barry has come to set things right after a long search for redemption. In the 1960s, it was O’Barry who captured and trained the 5 dolphins who played the title character in the international television sensation “Flipper”.

In a remote, glistening cove, surrounded by barbed wire and “Keep Out” signs, lies a dark reality. It is here, under cover of night, that the fishermen of Taiji, driven by a multi-billion dollar dolphin entertainment industry and an underhanded market for mercury-tainted dolphin meat, engage in an unseen hunt. The nature of what they do is so chilling -- and the consequences are so dangerous to human health -- they will go to great lengths to halt anyone from seeing it.
