Wow, incredible shot, definitely dream air. It reminded me of this shot: http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=4838129&size=o , but the difference in air is pretty huge.

BTW, check out what Kevin Pritchard is saying about getting snaked by Josh Angulo at Cabo: http://kevinpritchardwindsurfing.blogspot.com/2007/02/what-event.html

The flickr shot is outstanding. It reminds ME of the old Naish poster, with Robby soaring at Jaws. This photo looks like Jaws too, no?

Read Kevin's comments. Do you know what he means by "snaked"?

I was thinking "stole" but here's something more thorough from a google search. From: http://www.flyingfishonline.com/sports/surfing/743.asp -->

snake - paddling around behind someone who is already in position and stealing their wave. Effectively the snake is taking ownership of the wave by being the closest rider to the breaking portion of the wave.

Funny that the same google search yielded an account of KP also getting snaked at the 2006 Super-X. http://www.neilpryde.com/events/pwa/congratulations-to-antoine-albeau-super-x-world-champion.html (see race 6).

Wow. What an awesome pic.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
