In a departure from my recent rants, the latest craze in the southern hemisphere caught my attention so I thought I would run it past my discerning readership.
Underwater surfing is a dangerous sport, but perhaps that’s its appeal to young surfers from Hawaii to Australia.
The trick is to catch the wave just right, and then launch yourself into the bottom end of it as it rolls you under the surface. Or so I’m told by regular underwater surfer, Jason Kidmeister from Melbourne “Riding the crest of a wave has become so yesterday. This is where the real thrills are – at the heart of the beast you feel alive to the ocean’s awesome power as you roll with the base of the wave.”
