Its amazing how these guys understand hydrodynamics.
Observe from 1:40 to 1:55 how they ride an underwater wave in front of the boat, almost without moving.
Enjoyable vid Fredd :thumb:

How can the bubbles travel down???????? :?:

ps. Any bodysurfing buff might already know this. If you get some nice stiff powerfull fins, and have some timing, and wave catching skills we can imitate those surfing dolphins. Heres what I do...

Eye a nice set wave.
Start swimming to gain speed with powerful fins
Duck under surface and continue to power stroke super hard.
If you time it just right, we can catch the wave power under the water and shoot like a rocket ship out of the face..........just like a dolphin.
If you time it wrong or go to deep the wave will go over you
Its a different sensation than the average bodysurf, anyone who knows bodysurfing please try it.
