sick wave brah

this 1 minute clip provides a nice n' concise explanation how BBC used super slow motion cameras to capture this mesmerizing footage of a 12-foot monster barrel wave, the first of its kind to be captured with this newish image technology. check out surfer/documentarian Dylan Longbottom's perfect exit, not to overshadow the wiiiiild footage of the votices under the wave. as engineer charley explained to me in broken english via IM, the vortices result from a hydrodynamic force.
